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.
