2017 Specialised Epic Hardtail Base 29
Size Medium (17.5″)
New @ local bike shop
Our Epic Hardtail singlehandedly takes hardtail alloy XC
bikes into the up to date age, with essentially the most capable geometry available in the market and
a build kit that is all business.
We built all the frame from our best notch M5 Alloy to make sure an
ultra-stiff, lightweight, and highly responsive ride quality that is smartly
suited to XC racing. We’ve got also tweaked the geometry for more speed
and stability by slacking-out the pinnacle tube angle, lengthening the highest
tube, and correcting the seat tube angle. This manner, it feels more
planted then ever, and admittedly, it is stupid speedy. We also widened the
rear spacing to 12x142mm and included internal cable routing.
For the build, this Epic hits right at the money, choosing a
custom-tuned RockShox Reba RL fork and 11-speed Shimano SLX shifting.
|>||Given its lightweight and ultra-stiff
characteristics, M5 aluminum used to be the natural selection for the frame’s
construction. And when complemented with our speed-focused XC 29
Geometry and internal cable routing, you get a motorbike that compromises
nothing in delivering explosive speed, confident handling, and
|>||A custom RockShox Reba RL 29 fork
offers up 80/95mm of smooth go back and forth, at the same time as an easily accessible
compression and rebound adjusts can help you customize the texture
in step with the terrain handy.
