    Summary

    Expirience with the Specialized S-WORKS EPIC WORLD CUP

    Specialized S-WORKS EPIC WORLD CUP Review This bike wants to be neither fully nor hardtail. The S-WORKS EPIC WORLD CUP tries a revolutionary approach on the rear shock to mix the best of both worlds. With only 75 mm travel in the rear, it is significantly more sparsely equipped than, for example, the Scott Spark RC or the Orbea Oiz. With the negative air chamber on the damper, the breakaway torque can be adjusted separately from the spring stiffness. Who chooses the hardest of the three driving modes, will notify that the rear shock will only work when it hits big stuff. Otherwise it will stay locked. So you can benefit from the direct propulsion of a hardtail on gravel roads or in the sprint, but gets some support from the rear shock in fast or hard descents. The handling of this bike remains balanced thanks to a moderate geometry. Compared with what the market offers, the seating position is neither super sporty, nor uber-comfortable. In the saddle of the Racebike von Specialized, you´ll enjoy a moderate position. All in all, in the on long tours category, you will hardly find a better overall package from parts and geometry. The guarantee promise of 25 years ensures trust.
