If we're being honest with ourselves alloy has always been at the heart of the EVO family. It's tough it's stiff and at least with our bikes it's pretty damn light. Basically it embodies everything that's good about mountain bikes and that's what EVO is all about. But an Epic Comp EVO made out of aluminium? We say 'yeah it's a perfect fit.' And that's because this bike brings all the uphill racing singletrack-ripping fun you want and puts it in a durable on-budget package. So get excited because this is the most 'epic' Epic yet.

If were being honest with ourselves alloy has always been at the heart of the EVO family. Its tough its stiff and at least with our bikes its pretty damn light. Basically it embodies everything thats good about mountain bikes and thats what EVO is all about. But an Epic Comp EVO made out of aluminium? We say yeah its a perfect fit. And thats because this bike brings all the uphill racing singletrack-ripping fun you want and puts it in a durable on-budget package. So get excited because this is the most epic Epic yet.

Take a look around our office and youre going to see plenty Epics—most of them wearing dropper posts wider tyres and bars and slightly longer forks. Thats because the Epics that were Frankensteining are not only fast off the start line theyre even better suited to masochistically long rides multi-day stage races and fast backcountry missions. At some point we looked around and said to ourselves “We should offer this bike right out of the box right?” So we did.

So lets dig into the details. First off the EVO ups the fork travel from 100mm to 120mm. This gives you some relief up front while also slacking-out the front-end by one-degree to 68.5º. Next up we added a zero-offset dropper post to give you more control on descents but this design keeps your saddle over the BB on steep climbs. We also put some meat on the tyres with a grippy 2.3 Ground Control at the front and a stiffer Fast Trak at the rear with GRID protection at the sidewalls.

The Epic EVO also features our Brain 2.0. The OG Brain changed the way the bike world looked at suspension 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 some lengthy R&D its totally new. 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 means that the oil paths are improved and that creates an incredibly sleek package that outperforms anything on the market.

At the heart of the construction youll find our M5 alloy with our DAluisio Smartweld Technology that strategically places more welding material where its needed resulting in an aluminium frame thats more compliant and considerably stiffer at nearly every tube juncture. Its awesome.

For the build we specd a 12-speed SRAM NX Eagle groupset SRAM Level TL brakes and a Roval Control Alloy wheelset.

    • A RockShox Reba RL fork with 120mm of travel soaks up rocks roots and bumps and it also features both compression and rebound adjustments.
    • The 12-speed SRAM NX Eagle groupset brings the performance of Eagle at a value anyone can appreciate.
    • An X-Fusion Manic seatpost brings you some much-needed drop for tackling steep descents but it also features a zero-offset design that keeps your weight over the bottom bracket for the climbs.
