While the frame material of choice, these days, may be carbon, alloy frame technology has come a long way, especially when you look at the Women's Epic Comp with our D'Aluisio Smartweld technology. With it, you get a frame that's nearly as light as our carbon offerings, a tremendous component spec, and plenty of jingle jangle left over in your pocket for race entries.

Race courses have evolved over the past few years. They're more technical, steeper, and more challenging to ride. But instead of quivering in our boots, we saw this as an opportunity to make something special—something that both World Cup athletes and XC riders alike can instantly feel the benefit from. We looked at the sum of parts that make a bike handle well, like the head angle, reach, stack, chainstay length, fork offset, etc., and reevaluated all of it. Increasing the reach made a bike that was more stable at speed and generally more comfortable to ride. Head angle? We slacked that out, but not without evaluating the overall handling package. It now lands on a custom offset, 42mm fork that works with the slacker head angle in order to behave itself in tight corners and through switchbacks.

Next comes Brain 2.0. The original Brain changed the way the bike world looked at suspension, both in its inefficiencies and benefits alike. And oh, was it good. It won races and put a flag in the ground for us as a true leader in innovation and suspension development, but we knew that we could make it better. Simple physics told us that, by moving the Brain closer to the rear axle, it would be in the most sensitive spot. And after countless hours with the RockShox team, the Brain became more than just a slight upgrade. It's totally reborn. Now, it reacts seamlessly to bump forces, it has much more consistent damping performance, and finally, it integrates the hoses into the suspension links. This, in turn, improves oil paths, and it creates an incredibly sleek package that outperforms anything on the market.

At the heart of the construction, you'll find our M5 alloy with the exclusive D'Aluisio Smartweld Technology, which strategically places more welding material where it's needed for an aluminum bike that's more compliant and considerably stiffer at nearly every tube juncture.

The build of the Women's Epic Comp Alloy is value-packed, featuring a 12-speed SRAM NX Eagle groupset, SRAM Level TL brakes, and a Roval Control Alloy wheelset. Every touch point has also been hand-selected for female riders, from the Sip Grips, to the bar width and crankarm length, all the way down to the superlative Women's Myth Sport saddle. Get ready, because this is going to be Epic.

  • The M5 Premium Alloy frame with D'Aluisio Smartweld technology finally brings you all the benefits of alloy, like durability, in a lightweight package.
  • A RockShox Reba RL fork soaks up the bumps up front, and features both compression and rebound adjustments.
  • The 12-speed SRAM NX Eagle groupset brings the performance of Eagle at a doable price point.
