It's undeniable that hardtails still play an extremely important role in XC racing. So what to do? Specialized put their XC offerings on a diet, went back to the drawing board, and created the lightest damn mountain bike they've ever made—the S-Works Epic Hardtail. To provide the optimal blend of stiffness, crazy light weight, and strength, Specialized constructed the frame from their FACT 12m carbon fiber. And with its new XC 29 Geometry, the Epic is guaranteed to deliver uncompromising, blistering speed and agile handling come race day—no matter the course. The revolutionary Shimano XTR Di2 11-speed drivetrain provides unparalleled shifting precision, reliability, and accuracy, making it the secret weapon in any racer's arsenal. Shimano XTR hydraulic brakes, S-Works carbon components, and a carbon-railed saddle round out this amazing machine that will be primary weapon in your pursuit of speed.

Take a look at the world's strongest man, and you're not going to find some chiseled Adonis. You're going to find someone who has more volume. Behind the "extra" surface area, though, there's a man that can dominate a caber toss and run down the tarmac with a plane in tow. Mathematically, it could be broken down as more volume + versatility = dominance, and that's exactly what's at play with the Fuse Comp. Our 6Fattie Wheel/Tire System uplifts the Fuse to have more traction and control than any hardtail before it, while its no-nonsense build is custom spec'd to get the job done, no matter how rugged, technical, or hair raising that job might be. Even better, this system also allows you the opportunity to toggle between 29-inch wheels (not included) and 6Fattie wheels, allowing the ultimate in configuration options for the trail at hand. - M4 Aluminum with Smooth Welds proved to be the right material for the job, allowing a lightweight, durable frame with a low and slack geometry that's equal parts snappy and efficient on climbs and descents. It also allowed us to incorporate our exclusive Diamond Stay that accommodates the 6Fattie wheels/tires without compromising on our hallmark short chainstays that provide unrivaled handling and climbing prowess. - A Manitou Machete 29/6Fattie fork features up to 120mm of plush, trail-taming travel. It's also air-sprung for smooth travel and low stiction, plus it has an adjustable rebound and compression lockout for more efficiency on the climbs. - A durable SRAM NX 11-speed rear derailleur gives you reliable access to a wide range of gears.
Cannondale wraps up a whole bunch of fun in their Fat CAAD 1. This monster truck brings it with a SmartFormed aluminum frame for a stiff, responsive ride that's also trim on weight, while Cannondale's Lefty FatMax fork brings 100mm of smoothing suspension to the table. Tubeless-ready Sun Ringle rims roll with confidence-swelling strength, and Schwalbe tires conform to practically any terrain with flotation and traction. SRAM's X01 drivetrain gives you an 11-speed set that goes up as well as it goes down. SRAM's Guide brakes are just what you need to bring the action to a swift, modulated stop. Cannondale supplies their lightweight handlebars, stem, and a comfortable saddle to make this a smash-ready bike that can go almost anywhere.
