Ripping around between the tape is one way to worship at the altar of speed but for all the other long fast rides or marathon races on technical terrain there's our all-new Epic Expert EVO.
A MORE EPIC KIND OF EPIC
Dropper posts and slightly longer forks may seem like overkill on an XC bike. We beg to differ. Epic EVOs are not only fast off the start line they're even better suited to masochistically long rides multi-day stage races and fast backcountry missions.
HARDTAIL EFFICIENT. FULL-SUSPENSION CONTROL
Suspension should always make you faster?never slow you down with energy-sucking suspension bob. Our ingenious Brain-equipped shocks keep the Epic firm when the trail is smooth then automatically turns your bike plush the moment your tires meet rocks and roots.
? Race-proven carbon chassis and ingenious Brain suspension?nothing?s faster.
? Increased control courtesy of an ultralight and ultra-capable Fox Step-Cast 34 fork.
? SRAM GX Eagle drivetrain gives you all the gearing you need to tackle the biggest climbs.
