Go ahead, try and find something that’ll put a bigger smile on your face than absolutely smashing the perfect line on a fast, capable hardtail. The Epic Hardtail Expert exists to make that smile even bigger—and to make sure your face gets just as hard of a workout as your legs. Working towards the lightest bike possible has long been the race within the race, but at what cost? The battle of the grams certainly hasn’t been without its casualties, with hardtail XC race bikes coming to stand for a harsh, twitchy ride at the expense of capability and versatility. But who said fatigue from fighting against your own bike makes you any faster? Instead, recognizing that the fastest bike is more than simply the lightest bike, we said out with the jarred-to-death tail, the measure-your-posterior’s-sorrows-by-the-yard tail and in with the avant-garde tail. The ridiculously capable, mystifyingly comfortable, head-shakingly light and all-around fast, Epic Hardtail. Sure, we optimized every inch of the Epic Hardtail frame to achieve the lightest production hardtail frame in the world anyway, but we also prioritized our commitment to creating an Epic Hardtail that’s as capable as it is comfortable with aggressive singletrack-inspired geometry, increased tire clearance and a frame obsessively engineered for increased vertical compliance, all while creating a bike that lives and breathes the fundamentals of fast. The Epic Hardtail Expert"s RockShox SID SL BRAIN fork offers 100 millimeters of incredibly efficient travel in a lightweight package while Roval"s lightweight yet tough Control Carbon wheelset and a wide-range SRAM 12-speed group round out the lightweight build.
  • Ridiculously capable, incredibly light, and refreshingly comfortable, the Epic Hardtail’s dropper-post friendly FACT 11m carbon frame rewrites the hardtail playbook with game-changing success.
  • The 100mm-travel RockShox SID SL BRAIN fork is firm when you want it firm and plush when you want it plush—no levers required.
  • Descending from a long World Cup lineage, hand-built Roval Control Carbon wheels feature a modern 25-millimeter internal-width hookless rim, and maximize strength, ride quality, and durability while keeping weight to a minimum.

去尋找看看還有什麼能夠比在快速、完美碾壓所有路線後露出更大的笑容。Epic Hardtail Expert的存在絕對可以讓笑容更燦爛 - 更確保您的臉部表情和訓練過後的雙腿一樣。

打造最輕量的自行車是一場無盡的戰爭,但為此要付出什麼樣的代價呢?事實上在這場「公克」之爭並非沒有任何犧牲,單避震XC車款在崎嶇、困難的路線上,仍能兼具性能表現與多功能。

但誰說疲勞是來自駕馭讓你更快的自行車?事實上我們意識到最快的自行車不僅僅是單純更輕量,我們從 死硬的後叉量化後叉衝擊以及前衛的後叉結構得出結論。Epic Hardtail具有出色的性能表現、難以置信的舒適性及輕量,帶來全方位速度性能!

沒錯!我們優化了Epic Hardtail車架的每一吋,以實現世界最輕量的量產單避震車架,但我們同時也將遵守承諾擺在第一位打造出一台舒適性、性能表現都顛覆單避震印象的Epic Hardtail幾何。增加了輪胎容許寬度以及提升車架縱向舒適性,創造出一台每個細節都為了更快速而生的自行車。

Epic Hardtail Expert搭配的RockShox SID SL BRAIN前叉提供了100mm避震行程,其效率令人難以置信,加上Roval Control碳纖輪組、寬齒比的SRAM12速變速套件重量極具競爭力。

  • Epic Hardtail具有出色性能、輕巧、且令人驚艷的舒適性,支援升降座管的FACT 11m碳纖維車架成功改寫了遊戲規則。
  • 100mm避震行程的RockShox SID SL BRAIN前叉提供令人信賴的安定感
  • 在世界盃等級的技術下坡路段,手工打造的Roval Control碳纖輪組符合趨勢的25mm框體內寬以及無胎鉤設計,最佳化強度、騎乘品質以及耐用性,同時把重量壓到最低。
