With effective balance of stiffness and weight, the 2011 Specialized Epic FSR Marathon Carbon is a great weapon for serious riders. Extra cushioning is featured on the Specialized Epic FSR full suspension, while maintaining the durability of the frame.
Along with the stiff frame, the carbon components of the bike offers a weight that riders will find very helpful. Ideal for an XC race course, the Specialized Epic FSR offers helpful features for a professional ride such as 100mm of travel on the carbon frame, hydraulic disc brakes with carbon levers and customized wheels and gears.
All combined to make the 2011 Specialized strong, rigid and supple are the M5 alloy rear triangle and sealed cartridge bearing pivots, Specialized E100 Future Shock fork, and a carbon 1-1/8 to 1.5″ crown/steerer. Specialized Epic FSR owes its light weight to Custom Avid Elixir XO R SL brakes and its quickness and control to Roval Control wheels.
