The fastest downcountry bike in the world. Epic 8 EVO is the dressed up cranked-to-11 expression of the new Epic 8. Spec’d to slay downcountry terrain with its unmatched combination of capability efficiency and light weight Epic 8 EVO’s updated kinematics allow for insanely efficient climbing—while the Ride Dynamics-tuned shock eats up rough terrain on the way down.

If tearing through single track at breakneck speeds and giving your mates a high five is your idea of fun, the Epic 8 EVO is the bike for you.

  • UNMATCHED CAPABILITY: The most capable 120mm bike on the planet made even more capable. You’ll be blown away by how Epic 8 EVO’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 precise handling. With an increase to 130mm of travel up front and trail-friendly specs, the Epic 8 EVO is at home on rough terrain.
  • WHAT BUMP?: Compared to the previous generation, the new Epic 8 EVO absorbs 12% more bump and vibration forces, leaving you less fatigued and more powerful over time.
  • RIDE DYNAMICS TUNED: The Specialized Ride Dynamics team developed custom valving for Epic 8 EVO’s new shock. Tuning the dampers alongside the chassis’ leverage rates and new kinematics delivers a bike that excels in performance.
  • BIOMECHANICAL EFFICIENCY: By optimising the suspension kinematics, Specialized’s Ride Dynamics team reduced pedal-induced bobbing by 20%, maintaining active suspension for effective bump force management and keeping you in the most efficient pedalling position.
  • FULLY LOADED: All models now feature SWAT 4.0 to carry all your trail essentials and an integrated steering stop to prevent the top tube scar when crashing and bars spinning.
