Cross country courses are nothing like they used to be. Today's tracks have more in common with trail riding than the pancake flat NORBA courses of yesteryear. For this reason we threw away the hardtail rulebook and drafted our own chapter to create the Epic Hardtail Comp. We took a revolutionary new frame design and spec'd it specifically for the rigors of racing contemporary XC courses.

It's one of the lightest frames we've ever made tipping the scales around 1175g. And to make it this light we built the entyre frame from our superlative FACT 11m carbon fibre and then we took some cues from our road bikes. We borrowed the Rider-First EngineeredTM 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 angle 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 this Epic takes value to new heights with a custom-tuned RockShox Reba RL fork 12-speed SRAM NX Eagle shifting and fast rolling Roval Control Alloy wheels.
