This isn't just the lightest mountain bike frame we've ever made; it's our lightest, stiffest, best-handling frame—period. The Epic Hardtail was redesigned from the ground-up to give you an unparalleled performance advantage on the XC track. It flies up hills with ease, descends with unmatched confidence, and wastes nary a watt. Consider it a cross country revolution, and remember, this is Epic.

The Lighter the Better

It's the lightest mountain bike frame we've ever made, with some S-Works frames tipping the scales at less than 900 grams—less than a full 24oz. Purist bottle. There's a metric ton of tech that went into it, but who cares when you can have a bike this light, right?

 

XC Geometry for the Modern Age

With a pioneering, modern trail geometry that features lower bottom bracket heights, slacker head angles, longer top tubes, and ridiculously short chainstays, the Epic is ready for today's rowdy XC courses.

 

Rider-First Engineered™

No matter your frame size, you'll get an equally amazing ride experience. Stiffness and handling targets are now specific to the demands of each frame size, so every one of them has a stiffness-to-weight ratio that'll have you hammering through the course like nobody's business.

Introducing the Epic Hardtail

In a word, it’s fast. In two words, it’s bloody fast. As close as it gets to XC racing perfection.
