Meet The Riders And Their Rides-Christopher Blevins and His Specialized S-Works Epic Hardtail

4. Inner tubes or tubeless system:“I use Stan’s in a tubeless system. This always limits flats.”

5. Rims:

“The rims are the Specialized Roval Control SL rims. They are stiff, durable and light, of course.”

6. Spokes:

“Stock spokes on the Roval wheels.”

7. Front hub:

“Roval Control SL with sealed-cartridge bearings. The stiffness while cornering is awesome.”

8. Rear hub:

“Roval Control SL.”

9. Brakes:

“I am using the Magura MT8 and standard rotors on the Roval wheels.”

10. Handlebars:

“I like the Specialized S-Works Prowess XC Carbon flat bar with 8-degree sweep, 0-degree rise and 700mm width. I’ve always liked flatter bars for better control while handling.”

11. Bottom bracket:

“On the bike is the SRAM PF30.”

12. Grips:

“I use foam Supacaz grips with Togs on the inside to help me get a better grip while climbing.”

13. Cranks:

“Racing and training with a power meter comes with a lot of benefits, so I use a 175-size Rotor power meter.”

14. Chainring:

“The normal setup is a 34-tooth chainring with the Rotor chainring.”
