The Specialized Epic Mountain Bike has been with the Specialized family for the longest time but it’s still the fastest and most efficient full suspension bike out there.

In the event that a bicycle were the entirety of its awards, the Specialized Epic Mountain Bike would sit on the throne. Epics includes the 29er Geometry, FSR suspension, and Mini Brain Rear Shock that is built to peruse the landscape for the most productive ride conceivable, so it puts out more speed, control, and at last, more wins, than some other XC bicycle out there.

Crosscountry (XC) cycling

Crosscountry (XC) cycling is the most widely recognized discipline of mountain biking. Crosscountry cycling turned into an Olympic game in 1996 and is the main type of mountain biking competing at the Olympics.

Crosscountry cycling is characterized by the territory on which it is performed. XC courses and trails comprise of a blend of rough forest paths and singletrack (additionally alluded to as doubletrack relying upon width), smooth fireroads, and even paved paths connecting different trails. Riding or racing is only deemed crosscountry if the technical complexity of the trails is simple or moderate. Trails too specialized even to experienced riders are all the more frequently named “all-mountain”, “freeride”, or “downhill”.

Crosscountry bikes are one of the lightest mountain bicycles, normally somewhere around 7 and 16 kilograms (15 and 35 lb). They more often than not highlight suspension forks in front and infrequently have suspension in the back. In both the front and back, most XC bikes have around 100 millimeters (10.0 cm; 3.9 in) of suspension travel, albeit a few riders favor 125 to 150 millimeters (12.5 to 15.0 cm; 4.9 to 5.9 in) of travel as bike frame strength and innovation advance. The geometry of the frames by and large place the rider in somewhat more upright position than on a road bike yet a great deal not exactly on a downhill bicycle.
