Our Epic Hardtail singlehandedly takes hardtail alloy XC bikes into the modern age, with the most capable geometry out there and a build kit that's all business. We built the entire frame from our top notch M5 Alloy to ensure an ultra-stiff, lightweight, and highly responsive ride quality that's well suited for XC racing. We've also tweaked the geometry for more speed and stability by slacking-out the head tube angle, lengthening the top tube, and correcting the seat tube angle. This way, it feels more planted then ever, and frankly, it's stupid fast. We also widened the rear spacing to 12x142mm and included internal cable routing. For the build, this Epic hits right on the money, opting for a custom-tuned RockShox Reba RL fork and 11-speed Shimano SLX shifting.
  • 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.
