EPIC HT EXPERT CARBON WC 29 RKTRED/BLK/WHT XL
Epic Hardtail Expert Carbon World Cup
With all of the growth in full-suspension XC bikes hardtails were starting to become a little same old same old. So we thought to ourselves what better time then now to shake things up with a modern revolutionary design? Say hello to the Epic Hardtail Expert Carbon World Cup.It’s one of the lightest frames we’ve ever made tipping the scales around 1175g. And to do so we built the entire frame from our superlative carbon fiber FACT 10m and then we took some cues from our road bikes. We borrowed the Rider-First Engineered?? concept that originated with the Tarmac. Now the frame design applies specificity to every tube size and carbon layup for every frame size. This creates the optimal balance of rigidity weight and responsiveness so every frame regardless of size performs just as we intended.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 12x148mm and included internal split-housing cable routing. For the build this Epic hits right on the money opting for a custom-tuned RockShox SID w/ Brain fork SRAM X1 shifting and fast rolling Roval Control wheels.
