EVO represents the rowdier side of our bike line and the Epic Comp EVO is no exception to the rule. We’ve added a longer travel fork and a dropper post to the Comp-level Epic to create a bike that’s just as fast, but offers even more control when the trail gets hectic. A MORE EPIC KIND OF EPIC. Dropper posts and slightly longer forks may seem like overkill on an XC bike. We beg to differ. Epic EVOs are not only fast off the start line, they’re even better suited to masochistically long rides, multi-day stage races, and fast backcountry missions. HARDTAIL EFFICIENT. FULL-SUSPENSION CONTROL. Suspension should always make you faster—never slow you down with energy-sucking suspension bob. Our ingenious Brain-equipped shocks keep the Epic firm when the trail is smooth, then automatically turns your bike plush the moment your tires meet rocks and roots. Race-proven, alloy chassis and ingenious Brain suspension. 120mm-travel RockShox Reba RL fork increases the EVO’s downhill capability. An X-Fusion Manic dropper seatpost increases control on steep descents.
