A pedigree that boasts more World Cup, World Championship, Olympic, and Cape Epic wins than we can count—if a bike were the sum of its accolades, the Epic would sit atop the throne. And to make sure of it, our new Epic features a completely redesigned, ultra-lightweight frame, confidence-inspiring geometry, and a totally new Brain rear shock that’s engineered to read the terrain for the most efficient ride possible, making it the fastest XC bike on the planet.
Rider-First EngineeredTM frame that saves *up to 525 grams, while also maintaining stiffness. Not an easy task—yes, that is frame weight alone (*Pro, Expert, and Comp frames).
New Brain 2.0 is completely redesigned. Sitting closer to the rear axle for improved bump responsiveness and a new layout and oil flow path for more consistent damping control and bump performance.
Longer reach, slacker head tube, & custom fork offset creates a better handling package. Climbing or descending, stability, and confidence are no longer afterthoughts.
