Specialized's Epic Comp Carbon 29er boasts trail-scorching speed whether it's race day or just an after work throw down with your friends. Its FACT-carbon frame with an M5-aluminum rear triangle descends and climbs superbly thanks to 100mm of Specialized's legendary Brain-controlled FSR suspension that delivers unparalleled pedal power and control. You'll also love the smooth RockShox fork, crisp-shifting SRAM/Shimano 2x10 drivetrain and the Magura discs, which let you hold maximum speed until the last possible second. Plus, the fast Roval 29er wheels and Specialized tires deliver a superb balance of acceleration and traction.

Best bike I've ever ridden. My former bikes were all 26ers, 05 stump jumper, 07 epic, 2010 superlight and a Cannondale hard tail. I also did a demo ride on a Santa Cruz 5010C which was awesome but was 10k as tested! After some research I decided to buy the Epic carbon comp. This thing is fast and will go anywhere you point it. When you put the power to the pedals it jumps forward with no bob at all. It is a do it all bike in my opinion, I feels like a rocket on a gravel road, will bomb a downhill at speed, and makes short work of rooty/rocky sections or slick turns. At 5'10" and 170lbs my personal set up is 150psi in the fork, 4 clicks out on comp/5 clicks out on rebound, shock psi 180, 1 click out on comp, 4 clicks out on rebound, tube less tires, and 1x10 gearing with 34 up ft, I also cut 1" off the bar width. Shifts and brakes great and has a very comfortable riding position sitting or standing. Also very light for any price range full suspension, was 25.4lbs stock and now just under 24 as set up! One sick bike for the price!
