Dive into a world of exceptional cycling with the Specialized Men's Epic Expert. This bike offers an unbeatable blend of lightweight carbon frame and top-quality suspension technology - perfect for professional races or weekend cycling adventures.

The design of race courses has vastly changed over the years, pushing the riders to tackle more technical and challenging tracks. Keeping up with this evolution, the Men's Epic Expert has been revolutionised to a race-ready fit. Key factors such as head angle, reach, stack, chainstay length, and fork offset have been meticulously adjusted to enhance stability and comfort even at high speed. If you've ever dreamed of slaying steep tracks, the Epic Expert's enlarged reach and custom offset 42mm fork will help you perform to your best abilities.

We've also upgraded the suspension system with a redesigned Brain technology - Brain 2.0 - which has revolutionised the way riders perceive suspension. This technology ensures a more steady damping performance and a seamless reaction to bump forces. Plus, the innovative integration of the hoses into the suspension links offers a sleeker look while achieving superior performance.

The Epic Expert promises a significant upgrade in stiffness, courtesy of its Rider-First Engineered™ tubes. These tubes greatly enhance the front-end stiffness, resulting in dramatic improvements in ride quality and control. In addition, each frame size has size-specific tubes, ensuring an optimised riding experience no matter the frame size.

We understand how important weight is to cyclists. That is why the Epic Expert has been designed with weight reduction at the core of priorities, resulting in the fastest XC mountain bike ever made by Specialized. The frame design boasts clean cable routing, integrated channels through the shock extension and optimised torsion profiles in every section – all contributing to a substantial weight saving of nearly 525 grams!

The Epic Expert's build delivers an outstanding performance-value balance, featuring a 12-speed SRAM GX Eagle groupset, SRAM Level TL brakes, and a hand-built Roval Control carbon fibre wheelset. It's time to level up your cycling with the speed and sophistication of the Men's Epic Expert.

  • The full Fact 11m carbon fiber frame combines stiffness, strength, and ultra-light weight, promising a supreme race cycling experience. Add in the new geometry, RockShox Brain shock, and 100mm of travel, and you are in for a treat – the Men's Epic Expert is beyond doubt one of the fastest and best-handling XC bikes.
  • The custom RockShox SID fork, with top-adjust Brain fade and custom offset, makes this bike perfectly fit for new-era cycling.
  • Epic Expert comes equipped with a 12-speed SRAM GX Eagle groupset that offers high-end Eagle performance at an agreeable price point.
