Epic Hardtail

TECHNICAL SPECIFICATIONS

Our Epic Hardtail singlehandedly takes hardtail alloy XC bikes into the modern age, with the most capable geometry out there and a build kit that's all business. We built the entire frame from our top notch M5 Alloy to ensure an ultra-stiff, lightweight, and highly responsive ride quality that's well suited for XC racing. We've also tweaked the geometry for more speed and stability by slacking-out the head tube angle, lengthening the top tube, and correcting the seat tube angle. This way, it feels more planted then ever, and frankly, it's stupid fast. We also widened the rear spacing to 12x142mm and included internal cable routing. For the build, this Epic hits right on the money, opting for a custom-tuned RockShox Reba RL fork and 11-speed Shimano SLX shifting.
