Almost 3000 years ago, the pinnacle of sport was celebrated with fire. Today, Specialized honors the Gods of Sport by bringing the flame back to competition. The Epic FSR Comp Carbon World Cup Torch Edition is a celebration of the Rio Olympics, representing the flame of competition. Beneath the paint, its FACT-carbon frame with an M5-aluminum rear triangle descends and climbs superbly thanks to 95mm of Specialized's legendary Brain-controlled FSR suspension that delivers unparalleled pedal power and control. You'll also love the smooth 100mm RockShox Reba RL fork, crisp-shifting SRAM 1 x 11 drivetrain and the Shimano hydraulic disc brakes, which let you hold maximum speed until the last possible second. Plus, the fast Roval 29er wheels and Specialized tires deliver a superb balance of acceleration and traction.
Specialized's FSR suspension offers plush travel, incredible control, unbeatable traction and an overall awesome ride because it's completely unaffected by pedaling and braking forces. This design also eliminates "bobbing" for optimum climbing and acceleration.
