The all-new Chisel has been purpose-built to tackle modern cross country trails and race courses with the utmost speed. In fact, it shares many of the same modern features as its Epic Hardtail sibling, but in a more budget-friendly package, making it the most efficient and capable alloy hardtail out there. And with this frame option, you can build your new Chisel exactly how you like. Top-end build for a durable XC shredder? Oh, yeah. Or maybe a budget-friendly one that you can upgrade later? Easy. The Chisel frame is the perfect canvas to start painting your new path to XC racing. - The Chisel's all-new frame utilizes our D'Aluisio Smartweld technology that moves the hydroformed tube joints away from the areas of the highest stress, making the finished frame's balance of strength, rigidity, and weight more pronounced than any alloy frame in history. This not only makes the Chisel one of the lightest alloy hardtail frames coming in as light as 1,350g, but it also allows for tuned frame stiffness across all sizes.
Going all the way back to when inspiration for the EVO lineup was still waiting to be drawn from employee bike racks packed with hot-rodded Epics sporting shorter stems, wider bars, and longer forks, Epic EVO has always been about taking the Epic's unmatched pedaling efficiency, nimble handling, and featherweight chassis and injecting an added dose of capability to make quick work of technical singletrack and demanding descents. While the Epic EVO sees a seemingly modest 20-millimeter increase in suspension travel up front over its Epic stablemate and just 10-millimeters out back, we've worked overtime to make sure it's been implemented in a way that'll have you saying "Whoa!" as soon as you hit your first stretch of singletrack. Meticulously engineered to retain as much of the Epic's standard-setting efficiency as possible, the EVO's new suspension kinematics work in concert with Rx XC Tune customized suspension front and rear to ensure you're able to make the absolute most out of every inch of travel on tap, while still offering increased anti-squat characteristics for improved pedaling efficiency. With plenty of practice at staying ahead of the curve, the Epic EVO now lays claim to the most capable iteration of our Progressive XC Geometry ever to grace an Epic. It's also more versatile than ever thanks to a new flip chip-equipped rear end that allows riders to adjust headtube angle and bottom bracket height to easily customize Epic EVO's handling characteristics. - Flip It To Rip It: Tune the ride of the Epic EVO's FACT 12m carbon frame to match your preferred handling characteristics with flip-chip simplicity that allows riders to steepen the EVO's headtube angle by half a degree while raising the bottom bracket height by six millimeters.
Don't worry, we get it...your training buddies all think you're a bit "particular". You may or may not have stockpiled your favorite grips just in case they ever get replaced by a new model. Perhaps your trailside toolbox would make a quality control engineer blush. Whatever the case, you won't find any judgment here. Instead, the endlessly engineered S-Works Epic Frameset is here for you to let your discerning tastes run wild. We sweated every last detail when designing the S-Works frame, from an endlessly refined layup schedule that re-examined every last ply of FACT 12m carbon to optimize weight savings and ride dynamics, to the weight-shedding carbon shock link, all so that you focus on the rest, knowing that you're starting with the most capable canvas in the world. True to form, the latest Epic continues the tradition, taking advantage of the most efficient Brain suspension we've ever created to ensure it's always on a first-name-basis with fast. Re-engineered hand-in-hand with the new Epic, the latest BRAIN design resets the expectation for efficiency, employing a new race-tuned pedaling platform to ensure every watt possible is translated into forward motion, while handily soaking up momentum-killing chatter and big hits alike, all more smoothly than ever. Perfectly matched to the frame's BRAIN system, the S-Works Epic frameset's Position-Sensitive BRAIN fork benefits from RockShox's latest SID Ulitmate SL chassis for next-level steering stiffness that still manages to keep the gram count to a minimum. - If speed could talk, it'd introduce itself as the all-new S-Works Epic frame. Offering 100-millimeters of brilliantly efficient Brain-controlled travel, the S-Work Epic increases rear-triangle stiffness for peerless power transfer, while the use of FACT 12m carbon, a dedicated layup, and a full carbon shock link also make it the lightest full-suspension frame we've ever created, all while offering the most capable handling in an Epic yet. Nice to meet you, speed. - Pairing 100 millimeters of the most efficient travel on earth with RockShox's svelte-yet-stiff SID SL Ultimate chassis, the RockShox SID SL Ultimate BRAIN fork serves as the pinnacle of XC-race suspension perfection.
