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

15. Pedals:“Look Cycle, X Track Carbon Ti.”

16. Chain:

“I use the SRAM XX1 drivetrain. I switch it every three months or so, and also a little while before big races.”

17. Rear derailleur:

“I’ve got the SRAM XX1 Eagle rear derailleur.”

18. Shifters:

“SRAM Eagle shifters.”

19. Brake levers:

“I use the Magura MT8s. They have a bit of a smooth, gradual pull, as opposed to the hard knock of some other brake levers.”

20. Rear cassette:

“SRAM XX1 Eagle, 10-50 cassette.”

21. Saddle:

“I use the Specialized S-Works 143mm Power saddle, and it’s a nice bright red to match the decals on the frame.”

22. Seatpost:

“It depends on the race—sometimes an S-Works high post and sometimes a LEV dropper post.”
