Think of the Ultralight edition of the Epic Hardtail as a science experiment�a lesson in just how crazy light and capable you could make a race bike. We pulled out all the stops on this one and the end result is your personal rocket ship to the top step of the winner�s podium.
THE GAME CHANGER
The S-Works Epic Hardtail bears the lightest production frame to date. Impressive, yes, but it�s much more than that. We�ve also created the most capable and comfortable cross-country machine ever, because you�re not fast if you�re being pummeled by the trail. It�s a game changer. p>
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.
� The lightest and most capable carbon hardtail frame ever created.
� FOX Factory Step-Cast 32 fork gets all the trimmings, including a Fit4 damper and Kashima coating.
� SRAM XX1 Eagle drivetrain gives you massive gear range and quick, precise shifts.
