Testing the new Specialized Epic Evo World Cup 2025?

In a recent Instagram post from Specialized Factory Racing, it shows Sina Frei on what appears to be a new Epic Evo.

The bike in question appears to use non-Blackbox Rockshox Flight Attendant suspension, which could mean the SID Flight Attendant is in production.

The Instagram post also shows Sina's teammate Victor Koretzky using the current Epic World Cup, which does not feature the Flight Attendant SID suspension. Given the size of the SID Flight Attendant shock, a new frame design may have been necessary for XC racing scenarios.

The current Epic Evo uses a flexible stay with a linkage-actuated shock, while the Epic World Cup frame has a single-pivot suspension design with an inline shock.

The most noticeable change is the larger headtube/downtube junction and downtube cross-section, which will likely create space for SWAT storage. There's also a very low stack height and a recessed top cap in the top tube, which could allow for internal routing of the headset.

[email protected] I am a fan of everything that has 2 wheels: at a young age I practiced road and track cycling (Italian Allievi champion). At the age of 18 I passed into the cross country competing at national/international level as an Under23. Past Elite, I made the choice to take things more lightly from a training point of view, and my love for gravity disciplines was born, training me as an FCI MTB instructor and guide. Now I have made passion my profession by managing 2 MTB centers on the island of Elba (Bike Center Elba and Elba MTB), creating the FANTAmtb and telling in an ironic but professional way everything that revolves around MTB thanks to 365mountainbike and 365TV (YouTube'PULITI dentro BIKER fuori').
