The S-Works Epic Hardtail is the lightest production frame to date. Impressive, yes, but it's much more than that. We've also created the most capable and comfortable cross-country machine ever, because you're not fast if you're being pummelled by the trail. It's a game changer.
At 775 grams, the S-Works Epic Hardtail frameset is the lightest and most capable production chassis on earth. We've tuned the composite to not only be ultralight, but also ultra-forgiving. You're not winning the race if you're being pummelled by the race course.
Looking to ride faster? Who isn't? That's why we relaxed its head angle and lengthened the reach. The Epic retains a short wheelbase for deft handling yet offers more predictable steering and a centered rider position for increased control and speed on any trail.
The lightest and most capable carbon hardtail frame ever created.
Carbon and resin mix optimised for strength and improved compliance.
Precision-tailored composite plies and exacting wall thicknesses shed serious weight.
The frame is the single most important factor in a bike's ride quality. While there are many other components involved,
the frame is what ties it all together and ultimately determines how well a bike rides. Specialized makes the highest quality, most sorted frame on the market. The fit and finish is excellent and they ride amazing.
