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 prioritize all-out speed in your ride the Epic 8 is the bike for you.

UNMATCHED CAPABILITY: The most capable 120mm bike on the planet. You'll be blown away by how Epic 8's progressive geometry delivers technical terrain capability alongside fast and efficient climbing and acceleration performance. The absurd lateral and torsional rigidity of the chassis translates to some seriously precision handling too.

WHAT BUMP?: Compared to the previous generation the new Epic 8 absorbs 12% more bump and vibration forces than the previous generation leaving you less fatigued and more powerful over time so you can still push while they suffer.

RIDE DYNAMICS TUNED: The Specialized Ride Dynamics team developed custom valving for Epic 8's new shock. Our unique Ride Dynamics-prescribed damping characteristics holistically elevate the riding experience. By tuning the dampers alongside the chassis' leverage rates and new kinematics we're able to deliver a bike that rides beyond the sum of its parts.

BIOMECHANICAL EFFICIENCY: By optimizing the kinematics of the suspension Specialized's Ride Dynamics team reduced inefficient pedal-induced bobbing by 20% while maintaining active suspension for effective bump force management to ensure you remain in the most efficient pedaling position. It's the most efficient pedaling suspension bike we've ever tested.

MORE WITH LESS: With the Epic 8 we didn't spend a single extra gram to get mega capability from the frame. All models now feature SWAT 4.0 to carry all your trail essentials and an integrated steering stop to prevent the ubiquitous top tube scar the first time you crash and your bars spin. In fact the new S-Works Epic 8 frameset has even lost weight (76 grams to be exact) while gaining these new additions.

ROCKSHOX FLIGHT ATTENDANT: Free your mind to focus on fast in the heat of the moment. Specialized Ride Dynamics-Tuned RockShox Flight Attendant (on S-Works models) leverages SRAM AXS Wireless technology to collect real-time data from you and the terrain to determine optimal compression settings to deliver an unmatched experience for the rider.
