Specialized Epic 8 Comp

Gloss Dune/White Smoke
Satin Metallic/Sapphire White

The all-new Epic 8 evolves the formula of fastest through capability efficiency and lightweight integration. Modern XC tracks demand more and more capability by the day. Enter Epic 8. Its improved kinematics make it the most efficient pedaling bike we’ve ever tested while custom valved (and tuned) shocks soak up every bump. It’s a wolf in wolf’s clothing.

If you’re an XC racer or prioritise all-out speed in your ride, the Epic 8 is the bike for you.

  • UNMATCHED CAPABILITY: The most capable 120mm bike on the planet. Epic 8’s progressive geometry delivers technical terrain capability alongside fast and efficient climbing and acceleration performance. The lateral and torsional rigidity of the chassis translates to precision handling.
  • WHAT BUMP?: The new Epic 8 absorbs 12% more bump and vibration forces than the previous generation, leaving you less fatigued and more powerful over time.
  • RIDE DYNAMICS TUNED: Custom valving for Epic 8’s new shock is developed by the Specialized Ride Dynamics team, enhancing the riding experience with unique damping characteristics.
  • BIOMECHANICAL EFFICIENCY: Suspension kinematics are optimised, reducing pedal-induced bobbing by 20% while maintaining active suspension for effective bump force management.
  • MORE WITH LESS: Epic 8 frames feature SWAT 4.0 to carry all your trail essentials and an integrated steering stop. The S-Works Epic 8 framesets have also lost weight while adding these new additions.
