The good news is we have plenty of bikes due into the new year, so hit us up with what you are looking at and we can hopefully get you on that shiny new bike sooner rather than later. Most of these bikes will presell before they arrive, so it is imperative that you get place a preorder to avoid disappointment.

Meet the all new Epic

The all-new Rider-First Engineered EPIC is in store now!

The all-new Epic comes from a pedigree of the best XC race bikes in history. And it’s now redesigned to be lighter, faster and smarter than ever before benefiting both riders and racers alike.

Rider-First Engineered is a technology that was introduced with the Tarmac SL5 a few years ago. Specialized’s engineers set specific ride quality targets per size, so whether you’re a size Small or an X-Large, you’ll have the same intended ride experience without it being too stiff or riding like a wet noodle. This technology brings unique layups and tube shapes for every frame size.

What is most impressive is that the engineering team was able to make a bike that holds a stiffness-to-weight number that can go toe-to-toe with any of the competition, which is the lightest in it’s class, without compromising on comfort and handling.

The brand new Brain takes everything that was great from earlier iterations and builds upon them. Moving the Brain closer to the axle (moment of inertia) makes for a more responsive system than before. Oil porting and flow paths have been reengineered to reduce oil turbulence and provide more consistent damping. The suspension team also addressed hose fitting, so there are no frame rub issues, making this the most visually sleek Brain package yet. Now, hoses that route oil, flow directly through the shock extension, taking out unnecessary curves and fittings.

XC riding and racing has significantly changed. Gone are the race courses that resembled walking paths through the park. In are sections of trail that could be mistaken for an enduro track. We knew we had to address the sharp, often intimidating ride characteristics of XC bikes.

With increased reach to make for a longer, more stable front end. To keep the rider position consistent there is a shortened stem length, which also makes for quick handling. The head angle was slackened by 1.5 degrees to create an aggressive 69.5-degree angle. Those two changes combine to create a bike that is much more confident at speed and descending through steep and rough terrain, which applies the best balance of stability and snappy handling.

Other Bits:
All of the carbon Epic models have full carbon rear ends, which is a first for the Epic. To accompany the aggressive geo,  all the levels of the Epic are compatible with dropper posts. Not just the Command post XCP though, but full length droppers.

Specialized have thrown everything they had at the all-new Epic to make it the fastest XC bike you will ride. We hope you’re feeling just as stoked as we are!

S-Works Epic HT takes out the UCI Marathon World Championship

Check out Annika Langvad’s XCM World Champs winning Epic HT from Specialized.

“For the past three years I’ve almost exclusively been riding a Specialized S-Works Era FSR World Cup. For this years UCI Marathon World Championship the course was fast and less technical. I knew I had to get back on a hardtail for that race. So after the World Cup race in Albstadt my mechanic Jumani build a Womens Epic Hardtail. The following three weeks I spend all my riding time on that bike. On the road, gravel, trails, you name it! We quickly got on with each other and the transition wasn’t hard at all.”

As well as being built around the new S-Works Epic HT frame that weighs less than a water bottle there is a whole bunch of sweet gear to make this bike what it is and what it is capable of.

“In full race mode for an XCO World Cup the beast weighs as little as 7,6 kg (well, really coming down to how much sealant you put in you tires). In this marathon setup the weight was 8,4 kg.”

May the Fourth be with you

“A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away….”,

It is a period of cooling roads and trails.
Rebel spaceships, striking
from a hidden base,
 have won
their first victory against
the evil Glacial Season.

During the battle, Rebel
spies managed to steal secret
degreaser to the season’s
ultimate weapon, the DEATH
, a hardened debris
  with enough power
to destroy an entire drivetrain.

Pursued by the season’s
sinister agents, The Ride
Cycles races to 
bike spa, custodian of the
that can save
the people and restore
freedom to the galaxy….

For the Month of May all 6 Month Services and above come with a free bottle of Finish Line Super Bike Wash.
