Epic Expert Carbon
Lightweight carbon frame? Check. Industry-leading suspension technology? Oh yeah. Race-ready build kit? You know it. The Epic Expert is not only ready to shine in races, but it's also ready to put your closest buddies in the pain cave on the weekends.
FAST STARTS HERE
With more World Championship titles and Olympic medals than anyone can count, the Epic is truly the fastest cross-country bike on the planet. Quick and flat, rowdy and technical, punchy and hard—no matter the course, the ultralight and efficient Epic brings home the win.
HARDTAIL EFFICIENT. FULL-SUSPENSION CONTROL

• Lightweight, Brain-equipped RockShox SID fork—firm during sprints, plush over the hits.
