2013 Specialized Epic Comp Carbon 29er Spotted – Auto Sag, Brain Fork & More

2013 Specialized Epic Comp Carbon FSR full suspension mountain bike

Thanks to a reader nicknamed “Atila”, we’ve got this image purported to be the 2013 Specialized Epic Comp Carbon. The French site it’s found on says it’s spec’d with Magura brakes, a Rockshox Reba fork with their BRAIN internal damping mech, a matte black finish and Shimano’s new XT Shadow Plus rear derailleur mixed with SLX shifters and a SRAM X7 front derailleur.

In addition to the BRAIN up front, the rear shock reportedly gets upgraded with their Auto-Sag valve, something first introduced last year on the Stumpjumpers. Word is the frame remains unchanged other than graphics. More as we get it.

I also hear all 2013 epics do not come with a 26″ wheeels anymore, but the new 27.5″ options will be introduced…

The 2013 comp carbon is not currently shipping with the brain fork nor does the Specialized dealer book reflect this. Might want to update your article.
