The fastest downcountry bike in the world. Epic 8 EVO is the dressed up, cranked-to-11 expression of the new Epic 8. Spec’d to slay downcountry terrain with its unmatched combo of capability, efficiency, and light weight, Epic 8 EVO’s updated kinematics allow for insanely efficient climbing—while the Ride Dynamics-tuned shock eats up rough terrain on the way down.

If ripping single track at blazing fast speeds and high fiving your friends is your idea of fun, the Epic 8 EVO is the bike for you.

UNMATCHED CAPABILITY: The most capable 120mm bike on the planet, made even more capable. You’ll be blown away by how Epic 8 EVO’s progressive geometry delivers technical terrain capability alongside fast and efficient climbing and acceleration performance. The absurd lateral and torsional rigidity of the chassis translates to some seriously precision handling, too. With a bump up to 130mm of travel up front to eat up the chunk and a slew of trail-friendly specs, Epic 8 EVO feels right at home on the rough stuff.

WHAT BUMP?: Compared to the previous generation, the new Epic 8 EVO absorbs 12% more bump and vibration forces, leaving you less fatigued and more powerful over time. That opens the options for another lap (or 3).

RIDE DYNAMICS TUNED: The Specialized Ride Dynamics team developed custom valving for Epic 8 EVO’s new shock. Our team prescribes the special damping characteristics to holistically elevate the riding experience. By tuning the dampers alongside the chassis’ leverage rates and new kinematics, we’re able to deliver a bike that rides above the sum of its parts.

BIOMECHANICAL EFFICIENCY: By optimizing the kinematics of the suspension, Specialized’s Ride Dynamics team reduced inefficient pedal-induced bobbing by 20%, maintaining active suspension for effective bump force management, to ensure you remain in the most efficient pedaling position. It’s the most efficient pedaling suspension bike we’ve ever tested.

FULLY LOADED: All models now feature SWAT 4.0 to carry all your trail essentials, and an integrated steering stop to prevent the ubiquitous top tube scar the first time you crash and your bars spin.
