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. 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.
