Manufacturer Description

Hands down, the best value in cross-country racing machines today. The Epic Hardtail now features the same featherweight carbon chassis as our Pro model. Complete with a smart component package and a ride quality that's second to none, this bike is a raging deal. THE GAME CHANGER The Epic Hardtail sports one of the lightest production frames to date, but it's a hell of a lot more than that. We designed the most capable and comfortable racing chassis ever created, because you're not fast if you're being pummeled by the trail. It's a game changer. MORE CONTROL MEANS MORE SPEED Looking to ride faster? Who isn't? That's why we relaxed its head angle and lengthened the reach. The Epic retains a short wheelbase for deft handling yet offers more predictable steering and a centered rider position for increased control and speed on any trail. • One of the lightest and most capable carbon hardtail frames ever created. • RockShox Judy Gold 29 fork features Motion Control "lock-out" lever. • SRAM SX Eagle drivetrain gives you all the gearing you need to tackle the biggest climbs.
