EXPERIENCE: COMPETITIVE XC Racing is one thing, winning is quite another. The only race bike with a Brain, the 100mm travel Epic knows the fastest way to the finish line.

The Epic's fully active, fully independent FSR rear suspension is now turbo charged with 100 millimeters of rear travel, sprung by our exclusive Brain shock that automatically adjusts the suspension from firmly efficient in smooth terrain to fully active in the rough stuff. The new Brain Fade feature allows any rider to dial-in a custom balance of efficiency and compliance.
