Faster than you thought – Specialized Epic World Cup Expert

The Specialized Epic World Cup is the fastest cross country race bike in the world, thanks to its unmatched combination of efficiency, control and light weight on light to intermediate trails. All it took to build this speed machine was an absolutely holistic approach to development, the invention of a radical new shock and four decades of off-road experience crowned with countless victories.

World Champion Christopher Blevins put it best, “This bike gives me everything I love about hardtails, plus the control and capability of a fully.”

Details of the Specialized Epic World Cup Expert

New standards

To achieve maximum speed through mercilessly efficient power transfer and precise handling, the Specialized engineering team set and achieved new standards in torsional and bottom bracket stiffness. This feat required a holistic engineering approach that combined a structurally superior double-diamond layout with a shock integrated into the top tube, and included the most sophisticated carbon layup in Specialized’s history.

Shockingly fast

The Specialized Ride Dynamics team developed revolutionary shock technology for the Epic World Cup that gives you the efficiency and biting responsiveness of a hardtail plus the control and performance of a full-suspension bike – all with a simple setup. Developed in conjunction with RockShox, the SID Deluxe WCID shock uses a unique, independently adjustable positive and negative air spring. This provides the coveted snap of a hardtail and swallows difficult terrain, maintains your momentum and forgives riding errors. The setup can be adapted to different trails or tuned to your preferences. If you set the Epic WC hard, it rides like a hardtail, in the softer setup it clears the chunks out of the way. Not only do you have the option to open or close the compression damping, the simple nature of the setup also allows you to ride with or without sag.

Extremely punchy

At 75mm, the Epic World Cup’s rear suspension offers the same control and capability as a bike with much more travel. It is designed to be ridden predominantly in or close to the topped-out position. This results in the same positive travel as a bike with 100mm of travel and 25% sag. To further optimize suspension performance, the Specialized Ride Dynamics team tuned the spring rate to be relatively flat in the middle of the stroke and handle most shock forces like a longer travel bike. The size of the Mega Jounce Bumper, the special bump stop, is a first and plays a critical role in smoothly handling bottom-outs in heavy bumps.
