If you ask us, it's been too long since hardtails got their world shaken up. Well, our all-new Epic Hardtail Pro does just that. New geometry, crazy-low frame weight, and a build from the racing gods—this bike is ready to shatter the mold.

In order to create one of the lightest frames we've ever made (around 1175 grams if you're curious), we built the entire frame from our superlative FACT 11m carbon fiber, 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, 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, the Epic Hardtail Pro hits right on the money, opting for a custom-tuned RockShox SID fork with Brain, SRAM X01 Eagle™ 12-speed shifting, and hand-built Roval Control Pro Carbon wheels.
