Remember when cross country didn’t always involve a starting gun? So do we, but here it is! Flip It To Rip It: Tune the ride of the Epic EVO’s FACT 11m carbon frame to match your preferred handling characteristics with flip-chip simplicity that allows riders to steepen the EVO’s headtube angle by half a degree while raising the bottom bracket height by six millimeters. The Reba RL doles out travel with a steady hand courtesy of RockShox’s Motion Control damper, while SoloAir adjustability makes dialing in suspension performance a breeze. Shimano’s SLX shifting has always been the benchmark for affordable high performance, and the latest M7100 series simply raises it even further.
