Get Ready! 2013 Specialized Epic 29


We got a sneak peak at a 2013 Specialized Epic Comp Carbon. Many of the frame features stay the same from 2012 but the new Epic gets an upgraded “Brain”. The Specialized/Fox proprietary rear shock now features an AUTOSAG setup originally found on the 2012 StumpJumper FSR models. Also Specialized ditches the Avid brakes for Custom Magura MTS hydraulic brakes for consistent reliable stopping power. Specialized mixes in Shimano components such as an all new Shimano XT Shadow Plus rear derailleur.
