Epic Ht Expert Carbon 29

Epic Ht Expert Carbon 29

Description

With all of the growth in full-suspension XC bikes, we found that hardtails were starting to become a little same old, same old. So we thought to ourselves, 'What better time than now to shake things up with a modern, revolutionary design?' Say hello to the Epic Hardtail Expert.

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.

• SRAM's 12-speed GX Eagle groupset provides a wide gear range, letting you spin up the climbs.

• RockShox SID Brain 29,with Brain-fade inertia valve.
