    2023 Epic Comp

    You never forget your first taste of real speed, you know, the kind that brings an ear-to-ear grin you just can't seem to shake. Not to worry, from grinning to winning, the Epic Comp has you covered.

    A Smarter BRAIN

    Mixing hardtail efficiency and full-suspension capability to impressively quick results, Epic has always been defined by uncompromised commitment to speed.

    Well, that and over 100 World Cup wins and podiums too. True to form, the latest Epic continues the tradition, taking advantage of the most efficient BRAIN suspension we’ve ever created to ensure it’s always on a first-name-basis with fast.

    Re-engineered hand-in-hand with the new Epic, the latest BRAIN design resets the expectation for efficiency, employing a new race-tuned pedaling platform to ensure every watt possible is translated into forward motion, while handily soaking up momentum-killing chatter and big hits alike—all more smoothly than ever.

    Frame-Changer

    Redesigned with a focus on efficient power transfer and more confident handling performance, the Epic’s all-new FACT 11m carbon frame features a 15-percent stiffer rear triangle in order to take full advantage of the BRAIN's new race-tuned pedaling platform, while the revised carbon layup of the front-triangle sheds weight, sending the Epic’s already sky-high stiffness-to-weight ratio even higher.

    EPIC, appropriately named.

    EPIC says it all and does it all. I have had XC bikes in a few of the major brands and this is by far the best I have ever owned. It doesn't get any better than this when it comes to build quality, SRAM drivetrain and brakes, the ROCKSHOX suspension all blend together to give the rider pure speed and agility. Search no further this is a dream bike.

    Excellent XC Frame

    Bought the bike a few months back and switched literally every part (besides the frame & suspensions) and the bike came out well under 10kg. It is super fast, agile and depending where you set the brain it behaves differently. I usually have mine in the hardest setting but when I want to ride more downhill trails I put it in one of the softer settings. A great bike overall for people who like to go fast up and down!
