If you are looking for a bike that practically meets all the characteristics to compete in Cross Country at the highest level, the Specialized Epic Expert 2018 is your choice; Fact 11R carbon fiber frame, RockShox SID Brain fork...
It is becoming one of the most wanted XC double suspension bicycles this season and it is that the Specialized Epic Expert 2018 does not leave anyone indifferent, combines some components together with a design in two colours in black / gray or green fluorine along with black that we love equally and extol the competitive component of this bike.
Specialized Epic Expert model year 2018 with green hyper or black/grey colours, and the new Roval wheels with carbon rims
Expert version in gray with black details, in this case Roval wheels are decorated in red.
For use in competition or for rally / marathon routes, it has brain forward and with the new version 2018 of the micro brain rear in its new position gaining in sensitivity when acting without losing nothing the rigidity.
To take into account this year that the Expert goes from having the aluminum swingarm to carbon, also note that the frame is made with Fact11 carbon fiber which is the same material as the SWorks frame of the year 2017.
The Epic Expert comes mounted with the group Sram GX Eagle of 12 speeds that together with the wheels that this year already include the carbon rings, we can say that we have a very competitive bicycle almost at the level of performance that can offer an Epic Pro or even an Epic SWorks for a more affordable price, which is why it is a very good option for bikers who want to compete at the highest level without looking for the top model range of Specialized.
Some interesting thechnical specifications:
The rear swingarm of the Expert is made in carbon
Another novelty is the carbon ring for the Roval wheels that mounts
Shift levers Sram GX Eagle 12-speed
The powerful brakes SRam Level TL with disc 160/180mm and 160
Cassette Sram GX Eagle 12-speed 10-50, for all terrains
The new micro brain of the Epic 2018 is barely visible
For our part one of the improvements that we could make in our store would be to mount a carbon handlebar and even a telescopic seat post with internal wiring, which as you know is already becoming very fashionable in the XC World Cup.
The Epic Expert 2018 is available in the VFerrer stores of Alzira and Valencia, in both colors and sizes M and L.
