Yoke EP02

Product information Yoke EP02
Product number: EP02

With our Yokes, we offer a clever solution that allows you to replace your Specialized rear shock with a regular standard sized shock.

The Yokes are CNC-machined from a single piece of 6061-T6 aluminum and anodized in a stylish black finish. Moreover, a decent laser engraving of the branding gives the product an extra classy look.

Converting the Yoke is fairly easy, as all the necessary parts are included in the scope of delivery or can be taken directly from the bike.

  • Specialized Epic 2018-2020 29"

*important information about Yoke EP02: 

The frame design of the Specialized Epic only allows shocks with a relatively small air can diameter, as is the case with the original shock. Therefore, not all aftermarket shocks are compatible.

The smaller the frame size, the less space remains for the air can. We therefore recommend using the X-Fusion Microlite or a similarly small shock. For the Epic, make sure that the diameter of the air can is as small as possible.  

With an X-Fusion Microlite, we can guarantee that it will fit in the frame even on the smallest frame size. If you want to use a different shock, you must make sure that there is enough space between the frame and the air can over the entire suspension travel.

In the following example, the shock has space between the air can and the upper tube when extended (first picture), while it comes into contact with the frame when compressed (second picture). This shock can therefore not be used.
