With all of the growth in full-suspension XC bikes, we found that hardtails were starting to become a little same old, same old. So we thought to ourselves, 'What better time than now to shake things up with a modern, revolutionary design?' Say hello to the Epic Hardtail Expert.
THE GAME CHANGER
The Epic Hardtail sports one of the lightest production frames to date, but itâ€™s a hell of a lot more than that. We designed the most capable & comfortable racing chassis ever created, because youâ€™re not fast if youâ€™re being pummeled by the trail. Itâ€™s a game changer.
MORE CONTROL MEANS MORE SPEED
Looking to ride faster? Who isnâ€™t? Thatâ€™s why we relaxed its head angle & lengthened the reach. The Epic retains a short wheelbase for deft handling yet offers more predictable steering & a centered rider position for increased control & speed on any trail.
â€¢ One of the lightest & most capable carbon hardtail frames ever created.
â€¢ SRAM's 12-speed GX Eagle groupset provides a wide gear range, letting you spin up the climbs.
â€¢ RockShox SID Brain 29,with Brain-fade inertia valve.
