While we were focused on posting our own SRAM Eagle Transmission content today, SRAM also released some content of their own. The humorous and informative video on the new Transmission goes through details and claimed benefits of the new system. But it also gives us one of the best looks we’ve had yet of what appears to be the new Specialized Epic.

Clearly, SRAM isn’t trying to hide it in the video. They even use it for some closeups on the rear derailleur… which is why it’s pretty safe to guess that this is the new Specialized Epic. At this point, the bike has been fully leaked on the internet anyway, but it’s still surprising to see such a clear shot of the new bike in a SRAM promotional video.

H/T to Joe for spotting and commenting on this in our Transmission post!

I mean you can buy about 20 SLX derailleurs for the same price… stand with all your weight on 10 of them… and still have 10 left that shift under load and in general shift great and perform like an XTR derailleur

SRAM tries extra hard to make sure their low end stuff doesn’t work well

Somewhere, there’s a marketing team doing damage control.

More likely that Spesh actually paid SRAM for the product placement. If not, their marketing team are doing high fives all round for getting a bunch of airtime without spending their own budget.

I reserve the right to note that high fives can be a form of damage control.

Yes, it’s even got the old EPIC logo. Where’s the new one from the leaks?

Very similar to my Supercaliber, I am curious to know what happened to the “brain”

The brain is now in the cloud. The bike has GPS and the brain can track it anywhere in the world reacting to bumps for your riding pleasure. Most likely, probably, maybe
