Specialized Epic EVO Expert review

Robin Weaver

A super-fast, momentum carrying machine that’s far more capable than its rear travel might suggest

  • Rocketship fast when you hit the pedals

  • Far more capable and confident than the amount of travel might suggest

  • Covers ground incredibly quickly

  • Accurate line choice is recommended

  • Rear tyre needs more bite

Specialized Epic Evo Expert review

Guy Kesteven

Extremely light for the category and stiffer and slacker to be faster uphill and down, the new Epic Evo is a blisteringly quick and enjoyable XC/Trail bike if you don’t want extra reach

The Specialized Epic EVO Is a Mid-Travel Bike That’s Lighter Than Most XC Bikes

With a 120mm fork and a crazy light 110mm frame, the updated Epic EVO is trail-bike rowdy with a touch of XC speed.
