Expirience with the Specialized S-Works Epic Hardtail

Specialized S-Works Epic Hardtail Review The S-Works Epic Hardtail 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. The moderate 68,5 degree head tube angle ensures a balanced handling. When sitting in the saddle, the posture is neither overly sporty, nor uber-comfortable. This should make the S-Works Epic Hardtail suite the taste of most bikers. All in all, in the on long tours category, you will hardly find a better overall package from parts and geometry. The guarantee of 25 years proves that Specialized puts a lot of trust in its products.
