Specialized Epic 8 S-Works



The Specialized Epic 8 S-Works is a high-performance bike designed for XC racers and those seeking maximum speed. With improved kinematics and custom-valved shocks, this bike offers unmatched capability, making it the most efficient pedaling bike the manufacturer has ever tested.

The progressive geometry and exceptional rigidity of the chassis provide precise handling and the ability to conquer technical terrain. Furthermore, compared to the previous generation, the Epic 8 absorbs 12% more impact and vibration, resulting in less fatigue and increased power over time. Ride dynamics have also been extensively tuned by the Specialized Ride Dynamics team for a truly elevated riding experience.

With optimized suspension kinematics, Specialized's Ride Dynamics team effectively reduced pedal-induced bobbing by 20% while still providing active suspension for effective bump force management, resulting in the most efficient pedaling position.

The Epic 8 is the most efficient pedaling suspension bike we've ever tested, and without any added weight, features SWAT 4.0 for all your trail essentials and an integrated steering stop to protect against common top tube damage. Additionally, the new S-Works Epic 8 frameset has shed 76 grams while incorporating these new features. Thanks to Specialized Ride Dynamics-Tuned RockShox Flight Attendant with SRAM AXS Wireless technology, riders can focus on speed without distractions, as the compression settings are optimized in real-time based on terrain and rider data.
