Filling The Gap: 2013 Specialized Epic Marathon Carbon 29


Specialized adds the Marathon back to the 2013 Epic line. The frame is full carbon with carbon seatstays and alloy chainstays. The SRAM XO front and rear derailleurs will be controlled by SRAM XO 2x10 grip shifters. The smoother ride will be credited to the Roval Carbon Control 29 rims.
Overall, the 2013 Specialized Epic Marathon will fill the gap between an Expert and S-Works model. It truly is a good balance of components and value as a cross country race bike. The Marathon will be available in one color option- Satin Carbon/White/Silver. MSRP: $7200 USD
