Specialized's Epic Expert Carbon 29er is ready for XC domination — from World Cup racing to blowing by your riding buddies on after-work rides, and even epic adventures away from home. This carbon rocket features 100mm of Specialized's world-renowned, Brain-controlled FSR rear suspension that delivers hardtail-like efficiency on smooth sections and fully active, plush travel on technical terrain. Its RockShox SID fork boasts 100mm of trail-smoothing precision thanks to Brain technology as well. 2x10 Shimano/SRAM gearing with an XTR Plus rear derailleur are powered by svelte SRAM carbon cranks to give you all the push you'll need and more. When it's time to slow down to earthly speeds, Magura's discs get it done, while the carbon Roval 29er wheels track the trail with ease. Top it off with a sweet selection of Specialized's aluminum components as well as their trail-hugging tubeless-ready tires for a smooth, solid ride ready for anything.

This is a great bike and the suspension feels much more than the 100mm because of the 29er wheels. Best bike I have ever owned! Only complaint is the brakes howl easily!
