Epic Hardtail
  • Given its lightweight and ultra-stiff characteristics, M5 aluminum was the natural choice for the frame's construction. And when complemented with our speed-focused XC 29 Geometry and internal cable routing, you get a bike that compromises nothing in delivering explosive speed, confident handling, and hassle-free maintenance.
  • A custom RockShox Reba RL 29 fork offers up 80/95mm of smooth travel, while an easily accessible compression and rebound adjusts permit you to customize the feel according to the terrain at hand.
  • Shimano controls the 11-speed shifting with SLX shifters and an ultra-crisp and reliable Deore XT M8000 rear derailleur.
