    Summary

    Expirience with the Specialized S-Works Epic Hardtail

    Expirience with the S-Works Epic Hardtail 2022 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. We have checked all geometry measures and come to the following conclusion: the Specialized S-Works Epic Hardtail is a very balanced customer. When it comes to the seating position, Specialized chooses the middle ground between sporty and comfortable. The frame is quite a good one. The Hardtail-chassis makes a very nice impression. With the suspension, Specialized opens up the magic box, because the suspension elements block with state-of-the-art technology fully automatic, depending on the riding situation. All in all, in the on sporty excursions category, you will hardly find a better overall package from parts and geometry. With 25 years the warranty is another neat feature.
