Heller Barghest Frame
$2,199.00
Welcome to the world of no-fuss-sus! Heller's Barghest is a 27.5+ full-suspension trail tamer that’s itchin’ to shred right outta the box. The get-down-to-business, long and slack full carbon frame with a 130mm rear shock leaves little doubt about Barghest’s intentions.

Santa Cruz Highball 29 Frame
$749.00
When it's time to blast through miles of singletrack, nothing beats the quick, lively feel of Santa Cruz's Highball hardtail. Santa Cruz has been at it for years with the Highball, and with modernized geometry this version rips better than ever. In keeping with today's preference for running a short stem and wide handlebar, Santa Cruz lengthened the front end to preserve an efficient pedaling position, and trimmed the rear to increase agility. The result is an aluminum cross country trail slayer that's easy to lift over obstacles and whip through tight turns, ultimately making you a faster rider.
Surly Big Fat Dummy Frameset
$1,599.00 - $1,650.00
The Big Fat Dummy is a long tail cargo bike that took a few too many doses of growth hormones. At first glance, you might say that Surly just put bigger tires on a Big Dummy. But if you said that, you'd actually be very wrong so just… don't. Think of Big Fat Dummy as more of a second or third cousin to Big Dummy rather than a brother. They share some of the same DNA and look sort of similar, but they're two very different bikes and really only interact when they both reach for the potato salad spoon at that family reunion that no one really wants to be at anyway. Now that that's out of the way, let's get down to the nitty gritty of what makes this hulking beast of a bike tick. Surly's goal with designing a cargo bike around fat tires was to create the most stable, stiff, and traction-laden ride possible while hauling a ton of stuff. Big Fat Dummy has a longer toptube and slacker headtube than its more svelt cousin giving it a nice, predictable, and stable ride. They also used thinner, lighter tubing to construct its cargo area so while it's an overall burlier bike, there's not much difference in weight. Big Fat Dummy accepts either 10mm or 12mm axles in the rear with a spacing of 190/197mm. That big ‘ol spacing equates to one thing: tire clearance for days. Big Fat Dummy maxes out at a massive 26 x 5.25" tire.* While that large of a tire provides the most traction and stability a bike can possibly offer, it's also a lot of rubber to push and might not be for everybody. Luckily, Big Fat Dummy is also a blast to ride with 3" tires too. It uses the same 100mm suspension-corrected fork as the Wednesday, meaning if you want to add a little squishy-squishy to your ride, you can throw a Bluto on and let ‘er rip. If you intend to carry a passenger on your Big Fat Dummy, Surly requires use of their Dummy Rail Collars. These provide a secondary retention system for the rack, as well as stiffen the rack system. In addition, a stoker handlebar set up, found on tandem bicycles, is recommended as well. Make sure to check with seat post manufacturer for stoker handlebar compatibility. All Big Fat Dummy framesets and bikes ship with a Dummy deck, rails, bags, and the aforementioned Dummy Rail Collars so you can immediately start hauling cargo — human or otherwise. Big Fat Dummy is ready and willing to carry all sorts of crap — literally. It's already in use on an organic farm in Ecuador so it's likely that it's hauled some form of manure by now. *Using a 26 x 5.25" tire will cause some drivetrain limitations. For all the nuts and bolts of compatibility read Surly's blog on the subject.
Surly Ogre Frameset
$675.00
If you’re like us, your bike needs will likely change by the day, week, month, or year. Surly's Ogre can get you to your job during the week, then way out of town on the weekend.

Ride it any day of the week; it’s not sluggish on pavement or gravel and can also hold its own on singletrack. - Gnot-Boost spacing allows the use of 135mm QR hub, 142 x 12mm thru-axle, or 148 x 12mm Boost hubs. - Full-length Surly Trip Guide housing line guides for derailleurs and brakes - Two sets of bottle cage mounts - Disc and rim brake compatible with removable post cantilever pivots - Upper seatstay threaded barrels with mid- and low-blade fully threaded through-blade fork eyelets - Threaded holes for racks, fenders, and trailer mounting nuts - Rohloff OEM2 axle plate mounting slot - Tire clearance for 29 x 2.5” or 27.5 x 3”
Juliana Furtado CC Frame
$2,999.00
Set out on a new adventure and explore the unknown with the trail-ready Juliana Furtado CC. Featuring 130mm of VPP suspension to keep you moving over rough singletrack, Furtado is the women's mountain bike built to shred. The refined frame design allows you to dial in the perfect fit while increasing overall responsiveness through shortened chainstays and a roomier cockpit, and the lower standover height means more control on technical trails. Juliana's VPP suspension provides a stable platform when punching up steep climbs, and the just-right 67-degree head angle lets you descend with confidence. For this top-level Carbon CC model, Juliana used a slightly more-expensive carbon fiber to create the ultimate trail bike.
Juliana Joplin CC Frame
$2,999.00
Born unto the world as a race-bred endurance machine, the Juliana Joplin has evolved into something more, finding its stride in a genre-defying category that includes all the best traits of XC and trail riding. The result is a bike that's composed on tricky descents, supple through bumpy flats, and strikingly fast when it's time to crank things up. Add the ability to run either a 29-inch wheelset or switch to 27.5+ for extra traction on loose trails, and you have an unassumingly fun bike that allows you to ride wherever you please.
Santa Cruz 5010 Frame
$1,899.00
Let the trail be your guide on the Santa Cruz 5010. The 5010 is built for all-day backcountry adventures with 130mm of VPP travel, a short rear-end, and low bottom bracket that come together to create a playful trail bike that isn't afraid to traverse the unknown. The 67-degree head angle and longer front-center offer precise steering control on fast descents, and a lower bottom bracket height lets you climb and change course with mountain goat agility. For extra weight reduction, Santa Cruz designed the aluminum-framed 5010 with an integrated headset and nixed ISCG tabs, but otherwise includes all the features you'd find on the higher-level carbon frames to make an affordable, strong package for bagging epic trails.
Santa Cruz Highball 29 CC Frame
$1,899.00
When it's time to blast through miles of singletrack, nothing beats the quick, lively feel of Santa Cruz's Highball hardtail. Santa Cruz has been at it for years with the Highball, and with modernized geometry this version rips better than ever. In keeping with today's preference for running a short stem and wide handlebar, Santa Cruz lengthened the front end to preserve an efficient pedaling position, and they trimmed the rear to increase agility. The result is a carbon fiber cross country trail slayer that's easy to lift over obstacles and whip through tight turns, ultimately making you a faster rider.
Santa Cruz Tallboy CC Frame
$2,999.00
If hardtails are the sheep of cross country mountain biking, the Santa Cruz Tallboy is a wolf on their heels. With new frame tweaks that increase its trail chops, you'll be stoked to discover where the new Tallboy Carbon CC can take you. On steep and rocky descents, the relaxed 68-degree head angle and 120mm fork urge you to charge harder, and a shortened rear end and more progressive shock tune provide snappy acceleration and a playful feel over smooth, rolling singletrack. For increased control through high-speed turns, the lowered bottom bracket height drops the center of gravity and gives the Tallboy a planted feel. Versatility continues with the ability to run the stock 29er wheelset or 27.5+ thanks to Boost hub spacing and a chip that changes the geometry depending on which configuration you choose. This CC-level carbon frame is every bit as stiff and strong as their C-level frames, but weighs about 280 grams less, due to the use of some lighter, stronger, and more expensive carbon fiber. Using this material in key places allowed Santa Cruz to use less material overall, which is what shaves off more than half a pound from the frame.
Santa Cruz V10 CC Frame
$3,599.00 - $3,699.00
It takes a special breed to ride with the speed and consequence of downhill mountain biking. Gnarled, exposed roots and loose, square-edged rocks mix with quickly changing dirt conditions over the course of a few minutes, while gravity increasingly challenges your constitution as you race toward the finish. This is the world of the Santa Cruz V10 Carbon CC. With 216mm/8.5-inches of travel built into a stiff and durable carbon fiber frame, this DH dream mobs everything on the trail. Two adjustable geometry settings allow you to dial-in the perfect ride, and 27.5-inch wheels provide strength and increased rollover clearance for faster times on the track.
Santa Cruz Tallboy Frame

The Santa Cruz Nomad Carbon CC was created to satisfy the hard-charging, all-or-nothing rider who lives for gravity-fueled runs. With 170mm of VPP suspension, a 65-degree head angle, and 27.5-inch wheels, the Nomad offers a dreamy-plush ride coupled with muscled agility for sight-blurring blazes down big, technical descents. The revised geometry creates more room in the cockpit while shortening the rear end, and a steeper seat tube angle tames uphill battles on rangy adventures.
Santa Cruz Bronson Frame
$1,899.00
What can't you do on a Bronson? You can’t give in, because going hard richens the reward. Every drop of sweat, every speck of mud on your face, every battle scar—it all shows your dedication to giving it your best on every ride. Bronson satisfies the need to roam with 150mm of revamped VPP travel that creams crusty sections of trail while retaining a lively, playful feel throughout the travel stroke. The new link design and Boost axle spacing enhance lateral stiffness, while shortened rear chain stays, a longer front-center, and steeper seat tube angle offer increased maneuverability and pedaling efficiency for all-day, all-terrain jaunts in the backcountry. For extra weight reduction, Santa Cruz designed the aluminum-framed Bronson with an integrated headset and nixed ISCG tabs—otherwise, it includes all the features you'd find on the higher-level carbon frames to make an affordable, strong package for bagging epic trails.

Santa Cruz Hightower CC Frame
$2,999.00
With 135mm of Santa Cruz' proven VPP suspension design and a slacked-out 67-degree head angle, the Hightower shifts the 29er paradigm toward aggressive trail bike standards. Short chainstays and a spacious cockpit ramp-up the fun when railing technical descents and put you in a powerful position for blazing uphill battles. Santa Cruz didn't stop with simple updates in frame design to up this big-wheeler's appeal, though. Adding Boost hub spacing and a clever high/low chip that alters the bike's bottom bracket height allows you to run the stock 29er wheelset or change to 27.5+ for extra float and traction in sketchy conditions. Bike handling characteristics remain optimized no matter which wheel size you choose thanks to a flip of the chip. For the Carbon CC frame, Santa Cruz used a slightly higher priced carbon to reduce frame weight by 230 grams.
Santa Cruz Highball 27.5 CC Frame
$1,899.00
When it's time to blast through miles of singletrack, nothing beats the quick, lively feel of Santa Cruz's Highball hardtail. Santa Cruz has been at it for years with the Highball, and the modernized geometry of this 27.5-inch version rips in a whole new way. The result is a carbon fiber cross country trail slayer that's easy to lift over obstacles and whip through tight turns, ultimately making you a faster rider.

Specialized S-Works Men's Stumpjumper 29 Frame
$3,500.00
We’ve heard it all before: “This bike’s for going fast, that one’s for having fun.” “This one pedals well, that one shreds.” Why not make one bike that does everything well? Well, we did, and it's called the S-Works Stumpjumper. Unrivaled handling and stiffness, sublime suspension kinematics, and a complete abandon of proprietary nonsense—it rides like a dream. And with 29-inch wheels, you’re free to climb and descend at the hyperspeed that 29ers are known for. - The Stumpjumper's asymmetrical, FACT 11m carbon fiber construction is lightweight, stiff, and ready to take on the trail. It's built off our 29 Trail Geometry, so it's just the right amount of both capable and comfortable. And with SWAT integration in the downtube, a threaded BB, easy cable routing, and an all new chain silencer, it's ready for anything the trail, or you, throw at it. - FOX FLOAT DPX2 Factory has three modes—Open, Trail, and Firm—that control large compression adjustments on-the-fly. There’s also a tool adjust compression adjustment that allows for fine-tuning of the compression in Open mode.
BMC fourstroke 01 Frameset
$3,999.00
BMC’s Fourstroke 01 is ultra-fast, ultra-light, and ready to take you to XC glory. The carbon frame, stiff through-axle, and APS rear suspension achieve an impressively lightweight, efficient ride with dialed control. A Kashima-coated Fox shock controls the 100mm of suspension, creating an active, efficient rear end with the traction to have you scampering up the nastiest climbs. When the course turns smooth, a bar-mounted remote lockout is there when it's really time to put the hammer down.
Santa Cruz Jackal Frame
$749.00
Go get all floaty at the bike park on the Santa Cruz Jackal Frame. The lightweight aluminum frame won't hold you back, so drop in and let your big whips fly. Sliding rear dropouts make it easy to run a simple single speed, or you can add a cassette and derailleur for more power in the big park. Santa Cruz did you a solid and included a threaded bottom bracket for easy maintenance and added ISCG-05 tabs for a chain guide. Nice. Now go grab that mint-condition fork you scored and get riding already.
Juliana Roubion CC Frame
$2,999.00
Whether crushing monster climbs or railing sketchy descents, the Juliana Roubion CC has all the ingredients for making every ride a blast. Roubion's 6-inches of VPP suspension creams crusty sections of trail while retaining a lively, playful feel throughout the travel stroke, and this women's frame features modern design that offers increased maneuverability and pedaling efficiency for all-day, all-terrain jaunts into the backcountry. For the Carbon CC model, Juliana used a slightly more expensive carbon fiber to shave weight and create the ultimate trail machine.
Surly Troll Frameset
$675.00
Off-road touring can be a zesty enterprise, but it's not without its perils. Bicycles are simple machines that are extremely efficient, but all simple machines carry along with them the chance of breaking down. This efficiency can get you in trouble if your bike decides to break down far away from the comforts of your parent's basement. If you’re going to ride your bicycles where no one can see, you better take gear that's up to the task. Troll is up to the task. Surly's Troll was once a simple mountain bike frame with a few extras that made it nice for touring. The Troll has evolved into a frame that has been pushed deeper into the category of off-road touring. Its geometry is no longer suspension corrected, which gives it more room for a larger frame bag. Surly also adorned this frame with their Gnot-Boost spacing, allowing you to use any mountain bike hub whether it be 135mm QR, 12 x 142mm thru-axle, or 12 x 148mm Boost hub. The chainstay yoke has been redesigned to be fully compatible with 26+ tires and the complete bike comes with the always-comfy Surly Moloko Bar. The dropouts still allow you to run disc brakes, fenders, a Rohloff hub, and racks simultaneously. It also comes with more braze-ons than you thought possible – there are four triple bottle mounts on the fork alone (don't get excited, you can only run one Anything Cage per fork leg), as well as two more triple bottle mounts on the downtube. Troll is a bike that has one purpose – and that purpose is to carry you as far away from society as possible. Man has known for eons the call of the indifferent forest. The inexorable march of time, and dumb things like cell phones, have dulled our senses and made us afraid. Reclaim your animalistic tendencies atop Man's greatest invention.
Specialized S-Works Stumpjumper 27.5 Frame
$3,500.00
We know full well that for many out there, the ultimate trail bike needs to possess the agility and responsiveness that comes with 27.5-inch wheels. We tend to agree, which is why developed the S-Works Stumpjumper 27.5. The frame-only option, in our eyes, represents the pinnacle of trail performance, and it lets you build your dream Stumpy exactly how you like it. Starting at the carbon layup, it features our highest-end FACT 11m for an ultra-lightweight, strong, and stiff construction. The carbon molding process also allowed us to revolutionize how you carry your trail essentials with the SWAT Door found at the down tube. This compartment will fit a tube, a tool, and pump without rattling or compromising the structural integrity of the frame. You'll also find an aggressive and super nimble geometry that complements 650b wheels and features ridiculously short chainstays, a roomy top tube, a low bottom bracket, a slacked out front end, and our proprietary Rx Trail Tune at the rear shock. This frame also includes a custom Ohlins STX rear shock with our venerable, easy-to-set-up AUTOSAG system. - FACT 11m carbon fiber Trail Chassis with Stumpjumper FSR full carbon rear end blends stiffness with light weight to form the pinnacle of efficiency, while fully enclosed cable routing and an integrated SWAT Door create exceptional handling and zero-hassle storage. - The custom Ohlins STX single-tube air shock at the rear features high- and low-speed compression, as well as low-speed rebound. You'll also find an extra-volume reservoir that allows for more oil, which results in more control and an ultra-plush ride quality.
Specialized S-Works Enduro 27.5 Frame
$3,500.00
The perfect start to your dream build, the S-Works Enduro 27.5 frame is ready to be built exactly how you want it. No matter how you build it, though, you're sure to experience a fast, flick'able, and stupid-fun mountain shredder. We gave it a geometry that features a slacker front end, a longer top tube, short chainstays, and a lower bottom bracket. All of this together makes the bike truly feel glued to the ground, and the platform is more responsive and capable then ever. We even added some bits, like integrated storage with a SWAT Door at the down tube, and made "old" new again by making a triumphant return to a threaded bottom bracket. To keep the weight down, the frame is constructed from our top-tier FACT IS-X 11m carbon fiber. And to ensure top-level performance on the descents, this material choice is greeted by 170mm of plush rear and 170mm front travel, plus a geometry that can be "adjusted" via a shock extension with a "low/high" setting. - The frame's FACT IS-X 11m carbon fiber construction stands as the pinnacle of lightweight, efficient, and tough trail performance. It's been built off our 27.5 Geometry in order to provide an aggressive, well-rounded ride. And with internal Command Post IR routing, a return to a threaded bottom bracket, and an integrated SWAT Door at the down tube, you get a bike that's clean, dependable, and ready for anything that the trail has to offer. - The custom Ohlins STX single tube air shock at the rear features high- and low-speed compression, as well as low-speed rebound. You'll also find an extra-volume reservoir that allows for more oil, which results in more control and an ultra-plush ride quality.
Specialized S-Works Enduro 27.5 Frameset
$3,500.00
You like gettin’ rowdy, we like gettin’ rowdy, so we figured, “Why not create a bike that lets us do the thing we all love most?” Well, that’s exactly what we did with the Enduro. Its playful and nimble 27.5-inch wheels and modern frame have been purpose-built to make short work of the rockiest, gnarliest, and steepest trails, while still being able to climb well enough to get you there. Witness the sickness. Our quest was to create the perfect long-travel trail bike, and it all began with a close look at the geometry. Basically, we modernized it— slacking out the front end, lengthening the top tube, shortening the chainstays, and lowering the bottom bracket. All of this together makes the bike truly feel glued to the ground, and the platform is more responsive and capable than ever. We then added some crucial bits to make your ride, well, better. We're talking stuff like integrated storage with a SWAT Door at the down tube, a triumphant return to a threaded bottom bracket, and internal cable routing with guides that make cabling super easy. And to keep the weight down, this S-Works frame is constructed from our top-tier FACT IS-X 11m carbon fiber. To guarantee high degrees of "shredability," this material is greeted by 170mm of plush front and rear travel, plus a geometry that can be "adjusted" via a shock extension with a "low/high" setting. To get you started on your way to complete dream build status, this frame includes a FOX Factory X2 Air (216x57mm) rear shock with 170mm of travel. - The frame's FACT IS-X 11m carbon fiber construction stands as the pinnacle of lightweight, efficient, and tough trail performance. It's been built off our 27.5 Geometry in order to provide an aggressive, well-rounded ride. And with internal Command Post IR routing, a return to a threaded bottom bracket, and an integrated SWAT Door at the down tube, you get a bike that's clean, dependable, and ready for anything that the trail has to offer. - The custom FOX Factory X2 air shock at the rear features high- and low-speed compression, as well as low-speed rebound. You'll also find an extra-volume reservoir that allows for more oil, which results in more control and an ultra-plush ride quality.
Surly Wednesday Frameset
$675.00
The Wednesday is Surly's all-terrain fat bike frame. The frame features trail-ready geometry, 4.6-inches of tire clearance, provides lots of cargo carrying capabilities and is suspension corrected for use with a 100mm suspension fork (sold separately). - 100% Surly 4130 CroMoly steel with 44mm headtube and internal dropper post cable routing - Frame is ED Coated for increased life expectancy - 1-1/8" straight steerer fork, 4130 CroMoly - 100mm threaded bottom bracket shell - Universal cast dropouts accommodate thru-axle or quick-release standards
Surly ECR 27.5+ Frameset
$750.00
The ECR is Surly's answer to those times when you just need to escape to the woods for a while to get away from the humdrum of life. Those familiar with this steel mule know it’s designed around plus tires, previously of the 29” variety. A fully loaded 29+ bike is an excellent way to explore and get away for a while… if you’re of a certain stature that is. For smaller riders, it poses several challenges though. And no one wants new problems when they’re in the woods trying to escape old ones. To solve this, Surly redesigned the smaller sizes of the ECR to work with 27.5+ while the larger sizes are still equipped with 29+. All you medium specimens out there get your pick of the litter as they're offering that size in both options. Other updates to the ECR include and are limited to: Gnot-Boost rear spacing and a killer new beige paint job. It retains the abundant accessory mounts that we all know and love like Surly Trip Guide for brakes and derailleurs, fender, rack, and Bill/Ted eyelets, and a Rohloff torque arm slot. The 27.5+ sizes also feature two sets of Three-Pack bosses. You’ve got lots of options to bring all your “necessities” with you and still have room for excess baggage if you’ve got it.
Surly Karate Monkey 27.5+ Frameset
$675.00
Years ago the Karate Monkey helped start the 29” wheel movement and, as time’s gone by, many companies ­– Surly included – have experimented with even more wheel sizes. With so many different types and sizes of tires now on the market, riders have begun to understand the effect that tire width has on overall wheel diameter, and with ample tire clearance, you can see the benefits of multiple wheel sizes all on one bike. 27+ tires have the same rolling diameter as a 29” wheel, yet you get all the traction and flotation benefits of extra-wide knobbies. And that’s just the tires. The Karate Monkey frame has recently gotten a make over that includes the addition of features like internal dropper post routing, a new tubeset that uses the same trumpet tubes found on our Instigator 2.0, and a slight tweak in geometry that is more progressive and trail-oriented. The Karate Monkey uses a horizontal dropout with a derailleur hanger that features Gnot-Boost spacing, which gives the rider the ability to run any kind of mountain bike hub they choose. 10 x 135mm QR, 12 x 142, or 12 x 148 Boost will all work in the Karate Monkey frame. The frame uses a 44mm headtube for broad fork compatibility and is ED coated for an added layer of internal protection. If, at any point, you decide you want to throw on some skinny meats, standard 29” wheels and tires can be swapped in with no issue. If you want to round-house kick some trail right in the face, the Karate Monkey is your sled.
Surly Ice Cream Truck Frameset
$825.00
The Ice Cream Truck goes where most other bikes can’t. Snow, rocks, mud, sand — you name it, and chances are, someone has ridden it on an Ice Cream Truck. Don’t let that terrain-crawling ability fool you into thinking the Ice Cream Truck is slow and sluggish, though. A long top tube (best paired with a short stem) and short stays make it trail-approved and ready to rip. And with 4.8” tires on 100mm rims, “trail” is relative. Show a snowman who’s boss, ride through a sand castle — all while riding the perfect get-away vehicle. Or you can stick to riding terrain that won’t ruin a child’s day. It all starts with Surly's proprietary ED-coated 4130 CroMoly steel. ED coating provides a solid foundation for paint externally while adding a layer of corrosion protection internally. The Ice Cream Truck’s frame is symmetrically-spaced at 190mm and features Surly's MDS dropout system, so you have the option of running a 197mm thru-axle, 190mm geared or a single speed rear end. Each frameset comes with all three MDS chips so you can choose your own adventure. A 132mm wide PressFit 41 bottom bracket allowed Surly to play with the stays a bit more and move them a little further out, creating a much stiffer rear end. If you feel like swapping out the included suspension-corrected, straight blade fork, you’ll have plenty of options thanks to the Ice Cream Truck’s 44mm headtube. In a world full of uncertainties, there’s one thing you can count on: Ice Cream Truck will really take you places. At least when it comes to riding a bike — it can’t do much to help you fix the rest of your life.
Specialized S-Works Epic Frameset
$3,200.00
With more World Championship titles, Olympic medals, and Cape Epic wins than you can count, the S-Works Epic frame can truly be built as the fastest XC bike on the planet. Fast and flat, rowdy and technical, punchy and hard—no matter the course, it’s the best tool to get you to the top of the podium. Race courses have evolved over the past few years. They're more technical, steeper, and more challenging to ride. But instead of quivering in our boots, we saw this as an opportunity to make something special—something that both World Cup athletes and XC riders alike can instantly feel the benefit from. We looked at the sum of parts that make a bike handle well, like the head angle, reach, stack, chainstay length, fork offset, etc., and reevaluated all of it. Increasing the reach made a bike that was more stable at speed and generally more comfortable to ride. Dropper posts? Yep, those fit, and not just a short-travel XC option, but full-length droppers that fit in the 30.9mm seat tube. Head angle? We slacked that out, but not without evaluating the overall handling package. It now lands on a custom offset, 42mm fork that works with the slacker head angle in order to behave itself in tight corners and through switchbacks. Next comes Brain 2.0. The original Brain changed the way the bike world looked at suspension, both in its inefficiencies and benefits alike. And oh, was it good. It won races and put a flag in the ground for us as a true leader in innovation and suspension development, but we knew that we could make it better. Simple physics told us that, by moving the Brain closer to the rear axle, it would be in the most sensitive spot. And after countless hours with the RockShox team, the Brain became more than just a slight upgrade. It's totally reborn. Now, it reacts seamlessly to bump forces, it has much more consistent damping performance, and finally, it integrates the hoses into the suspension links. This, in turn, improves oil paths, and it creates an incredibly sleek package that outperforms anything on the market. The Epic also has a rider Rider-First Engineered design that places complex carbon pieces in all the right places, and this greatly increases stiffness in the front-end for a vast improvement in ride quality and control. To go along with this, each frame size has size-specific tubes that result in the stiffest, best riding XC bike we've ever developed—no matter the frame size. And while stiffness, Brain technology, and geometry features are cool and all, we know what you're thinking, 'What about weight?' We're glad you asked. With the goal of the new Epic to be the fastest XC mountain bike we've ever made, weight was at the top of our priorities list. We started with an efficient frame layout and tube shapes that feature clean cable routing, integrated channels through the shock extension, straight tubes with fewer curves, and optimized torsion profiles in every section. And, if you're curious, this weight savings is equivalent to shedding a chainstay and shock extension from the previous Epic—nearly 350 grams. This frame comes equipped with a custom RockShox Micro Brain rear shock w/ a Spike Valve. Building out the rest of that dream build is up to you—we hope to see it out on the course soon. - S-Works FACT 12m carbon fiber frame is the best combination of stiffness, strength, and light overall weight, resulting in the utmost efficiency and speed. Meanwhile, the new geometry, RockShox Brain shock, and 100mm of travel make the Epic the best handling, fastest XC bike you've ever been on.
