    Summary

    Expirience with the Specialized Epic Hardtail Expert

    Expirience with the Epic Hardtail Expert 2022 The Epic Hardtail Expert has one of the lightest carbon frames in the world. The German designer Peter Denk drove the frame weight well below the 1000 gram mark and gave the competition a real headache. With its balanced handling, riding the Specialized Racebike feels really intuitive. When sitting in the saddle, the posture is neither overly sporty, nor uber-comfortable. This should make the Specialized Racebike suite the taste of most bikers. With the frame, Specialized supplies a very high quality Hardtail-chassis. The degree of automation is always progressing in the bike industry. For example, with the Racebike of Specialized there is no need to block the suspension manually anymore. An innovative technology takes care of that. Despite this criticism, the coherent overall concept makes the Specialized Epic Hardtail Expert to on long tours a buying recommendation in the price range 5700 Euro range. With 25 years the warranty is another neat feature.
