With countless XC wins, including a gold medal at the Olympics, Specialized's S-Works Epic 29 World Cup takes the concept of fast to the next level. Its state-of-the-art FACT 11m-carbon frame is not only light, it's super stiff for lightning-fast accelerations and pinpoint handling. Enhancing the incredible frame is Brain-controlled suspension along with a cutting-edge 100mm-travel RockShox RS-1 fork, boasting an inverted design with a carbon fiber upper which provides superior stiffness, while behaving with more sensitivity to small bumps and more control over larger hits. Up and down, this pro-level ride continues with the best of the best: an efficient SRAM XX1 1x11 drivetrain delivers flawless, fast shifting, featherweight Roval carbon wheels make you feel like you're cheating, and wonderfully light, powerful Shimano XTR disc brakes have modulation to spare. Not stopping there, you get world-class S-Works carbon seatpost, a carbon-railed Phenom Pro saddle and tubeless S-Works Fast Trak tires so you can add to the Epic's win count.
Specialized's Demo 8 II is built to dismantle the world's toughest, gnarliest downhill courses. Its legendary FSR suspension now partners with 650b wheels to smooth every trail, delivering a low-center of gravity that's confident soaring through the air and skimming across techy tracks. No matter how gnar-filled the trail is, the Boxxer Team fork and Öhlins rear shock deftly control the biggest, fastest hits, and they boast the adjustments you need to perfectly tune the suspension for each course. For even more control, SRAM's Guide RS DH discs and fat Specialized tires bite hard and stop quick, while the burly Roval wheels take all the huge air and harsh landings that you can dish out. Plus, this monster is spec'd with quick-shifting SRAM X0 gearing and a Gamut bashguard.
We're all for pumping out hot laps hour-after-hour, but climbing back to the top, or burying your pride and getting a shuttle ride, tends to get old. Either your legs start bubbling with lactic acid like a marshmallow in a campfire, or you're forced to miss the "perfect run" when it's your turn to drive. We get it, and that's why we've developed the Turbo Kenevo Comp. Best-in-class technology gives it the power to ride more trails, all while having the modern geometry and travel found you need for a big day out. With the Turbo Kenevo, you get all of the hallmarks that our trail bikes are known for—a roomy top tube for an easy fit and better control, ultra-short chainstays for nimble handling, and a low bottom bracket that makes the bike feel glued to the trail. But then you top it all off with 180 millimeters of front and rear travel, and you get a bike that's ready to send it off of anything. Then comes an M5 aluminum frame and our hyper-efficient and powerful Specialized e-MTB technology—integrating an easily removable battery and a new Specialized 1.2E motor. This also receives our exclusive Rx Trail Tune that smoothly and quietly brings additional power to the pedals, making climbing the steepest of trails nearly effortless. Of course, the output is fully adjustable to conserve energy, as well, while the custom motor is also the only one on the market that features instant pedal engagement and consistent torque throughout the entire cadence range. At the M1 Series battery, you'll find that it's fully integrated with the down tube and easily removable for quick charging or swaps. It has a lengthy lifespan for hitting long, out of the way trails and, along with the motor, it's been strategically placed for optimal weight distribution. You'll also find our Mission Control App for full control of the Turbo technology, an integrated Trail Display with all of the ride metrics you need, a Trail Remote that lets you easily switch between modes without removing your hands from the bars, and a power meter that shows exactly how much power you're putting out vs. the motor. The build of the Turbo Kenevo Comp is the perfect blend of performance, durability, and value. It features a RockShox Yari RC fork and FOX Van RC Coil rear shock (each with 180mm of travel), a mix of Shimano XT and SLX drivetrain components, and wide alloy rims. - With 180mm of travel, the frame is constructed from our M5 Premium Aluminum that's equal parts, strong, lightweight, and incredibly responsive. The design of the frame, itself, revolves around our Trail Geometry that includes all of our trail hallmarks, like a low-slung bottom bracket, roomy top tube, and ultra-short chainstays. Cable routing is all internal, including that of the X-Fusion Manic dropper post, while the battery is fully integrated into the down tube and the motor is secured by a forged brace mount. - The custom Specialized 1.2E Rx Trail-tuned motor is built for the Kenevo and features significant efficiency increase, compared to the Specialized 1.1 motor—delivering plenty of juice for a day out on the trails. It has many other features that no other e-bike can touch, like instant engagement, fantastic heat management, a double freewheel design that disengages the gearbox when you hit top speed, and silent, smooth, and consistent output—even at max power. - The Specialized M1-460 battery features an integrated Trail Display and ANT+/Bluetooth module with Mission Control App connectivity. It houses 460Wh of trail-taming juice, is easily removable, and it's neatly integrated into the down tube.
Don't worry, S-Works doesn't get to have all of the fun—the new Stumpjumper Comp Carbon 29 features the same frame as the S-Works, with a full 11m carbon chassis and rear-end. Only here, we've included a solid list of no-fuss components, including a SRAM NX Eagle 12-speed groupset for the everyman's budget. Our design goal for the new Stumpjumper was simple—build the ultimate trail bike, one that feels telepathic. And it turns out that this feeling all comes down to stiffness. Think of it this way: when the frame's telling your hands one thing and your feet another, your brain gets confused with the imbalance and the bike feels unstable. In order to fix this, we had to get to work on dialing-in the materials, shapes, and the layout. We started by creating our own mountain-specific stiffness test, and then we looked at the layout with Finite Element Analysis (FEA) to see where we could get the biggest stiffness improvements. This led to a big discovery: The Large and X-Large frames needed more front-end stiffness while the Smalls and Mediums were just fine. We were able to create a frame design that was 20% more efficient. And in the end, this proved to be one of the lightest trail frames on the market, today. When designing the frame with the stiffness targets being a main goal, we developed a radical new sidearm design. The front-end and rear-end are connected at three points, and the sidearm helps keep all these points super stiff and connected, all while taking about 100 grams out of the rear-end. More explicitly, this minimizes frame flex when the rear suspension is active. We continued down the suspension path with a custom Rx Trail Tune on both the fork and rear shock. Suspension performance is highly dependent on frame, wheel, and rider size, so we use our Rx Tune to get each bike to land in the middle of the adjustment spectrum, and this gives you the biggest possible range to fine-tune your ride. Another focal point of the tune was matching the suspension characteristics between wheel sizes—we developed a specific Rx Tune for each platform. So, no matter what wheel size you prefer, you'll get perfectly linear suspension. Steps were also taken to make this bike easy to live with. Threaded bottom brackets make a triumphant return, and we made room for up to a 3.0" tire. You're also free to run whatever aftermarket rear shock you want, since we're using standard metric shocks. We revamped the SWAT box, too, making it sleeker, lighter, and with more volume. And customization is furthered with a Flip Chip that lets you to dial-in your Stumpy to your riding style. Switch it from High to Low and it drops your bottom bracket 6mm and slackens the head tube by half-a-degree. Little details also jump out to surprise you, like a newly designed ribbed chainstay protector that makes chain slap a thing of the past and nearly silences the drivetrain. Lastly, we seriously couldn't make cable routing any easier on carbon models. Full tubes can be found throughout the carbon frame, so all you have to do is push the cable and it'll come out the other end. No more lazy loop, hidden stashes of magnets, pokey spokes, or pillows to cry in. The build on this Comp model comes with a list of components that deliver undeniable quality, like a 12-speed SRAM NX Eagle drivetrain, SRAM Guide R disc brakes, FOX front and rear suspension, and Roval Traverse 29 wheels. - The Stumpjumper's asymmetrical, FACT 11m carbon fiber construction is lightweight, stiff, and ready to take on the trail. It's built off our 29 Trail Geometry, so it's just the right amount of both capable and comfortable. And with SWAT integration in the down tube, a threaded BB, easy cable routing, and an all-new chain silencer, it's ready for anything the trail, or you, throw at it. - The FOX DPS Performance rear shock features our Rx Trail Tune, ensuring that no matter the wheel or frame size, your bike is dialed-in perfectly. - SRAM's 12-speed NX Eagle groupset features a wide gear range that delivers climbing and descending efficiency in spades.
From wide-open jump trails to steep, tight and techy runs, the Specialized S-Works Demo 8 Carbon Frame reigns over them all. With super-slack geometry, 200mm of terrain-flattening travel and a low top tube, the Demo delivers point-and-shoot handling, perfect for stomping big hits and railing the nastiest rock gardens. Controlling the rear end is Cane Creek's incredible Double Barrel coil shock. It boasts adjustable high- and low-speed rebound as well as high- and low-speed compression damping for the ultimate in tunability and ride quality. And of course, this burly frame can handle big-travel forks and fat rubber for sick grip and pinpoint control.
No need to fret—we haven’t forgotten about all you alloy fans out there. In fact, the new Stumpjumper Comp Alloy 27.5 with a 12-speed SRAM NX Eagle may be the most radically designed alloy bike ever made. For real, though. And with new tube shapes and an asymmetrical design, it's going to exceed all of your expectations of how a trail bike should ride. Our design goal for the new Stumpjumper was simple—build the ultimate trail bike, one that feels telepathic. And it turns out that this feeling all comes down to stiffness.

While carbon often gets all the credit, alloy is far from obsolete, especially the M5 premium aluminum with D'Aluisio Smartweld technology found on the Epic Comp Alloy. It's lightweight, stiff, and can also take a beating. But not only that, you also get a redesigned version of the Brain suspension technology that's made the Epic famous. Race courses have evolved over the past few years. They're more technical, steeper, and simply more challenging to ride. But instead of quivering in their boots, Specialized saw this as an opportunity to make something special—something that both World Cup athletes and XC riders alike can instantly feel the benefit from. They looked at the sum of parts that make a bike handle well, like the head angle, reach, stack, chainstay length, fork offset, etc., and reevaluated all of it. Increasing the reach made a bike that was more stable at speed and generally more comfortable to ride. Dropper posts? Yep, those fit, and not just a short-travel XC option, but full-length droppers that fit in the 30.9mm seat tube. Head angle? Specialized slacked that out, but not without evaluating the overall handling package. It now lands on a custom offset, 42mm fork that works with the slacker head angle in order to behave itself in tight corners and through switchbacks. Next comes the redesigned Brain technology, Brain 2.0. The Brain changed the way the bike world looked at suspension, both its inefficiencies and benefits alike. And oh was it good. It won races and put a flag in the ground for Specialized as a true leader in innovation and suspension development, but they knew they could make it better. Simple physics said that, by moving the Brain closer to the rear axle, it would be in the most sensitive spot. And after countless hours with the RockShox team, the new Brain became more than just a slight upgrade. It's totally new. Now, it reacts seamlessly to bump forces, it has much more consistent damping performance, and finally, it integrates the hoses into the suspension links. This, in turn, improves oil paths, and it creates an incredibly sleek package that outperforms anything on the market. At the heart of the construction, you'll find their M5 alloy with the exclusive D'Aluisio Smartweld Technology, which strategically places more welding material where it's needed, resulting in an aluminum bike that's more compliant and considerably stiffer at nearly every tube juncture. The build of the Epic Comp Alloy is value-packed, featuring an 11-speed SRAM GX groupset, SRAM Level TL brakes, and a Roval Control alloy wheelset. Get ready, because this is going to be Epic. - The M5 Premium Alloy frame with D'Aluisio Smartweld technology finally brings you all the benefits of alloy, like durability, in a lightweight package. - A RockShox Reba RL fork soaks up the bumps up front, and features both compression and rebound adjustments. - An 11-speed SRAM GX groupset handles shifting duties, bringing the convenience of one-by to your XC rig.
