Sam Gaze is riding Specialized's full-suspension Epic XC bike this weekend in Vallnord. The two-time U23 World Champion and winner of the first World Cup of 2018, in Stellenbosch, is always one to watch for a solid result.
His S-Works Epic is kitted out with Specialized's house brand Roval wheels, Specialized handlebars, and a 130mm long stem with -24 degrees of drop. Magura brakes slow things down while Specialized's S-Works Fast Trak tires put traction to the ground. The drivetrain is a Rotor Crankset with a Q-ring coupled with a SRAM XX1 Eagle derailleur and cassette. Suspension duties are handled by RockShox with a 100mm travel SID up front and then a RockShox/Specialized collaboration shock in the back.
