With more World Championship titles, Olympic medals, and Cape Epic wins than anyone can count, the S-Works Epic is truly the fastest XC bike on the planet. Now, we've made it that much faster with XX1 Eagle AXS—SRAM's cutting-edge, wireless, electronic drivetrain. Under pedaling loads, in harsh conditions...every shift on the S-Works Epic AXS is as fast and precise as the bike itself. - You’re looking at the fastest, best-handling XC bike available. Our S-Works FACT 12m carbon fiber frame offers the perfect combination of stiffness, strength, and weight. - We’ve paired that cutting-edge chassis with progressive geometry, innovative Brain shock technology, and 100mm of travel. End result? Stunning efficiency and speed. - A top-tier bike deserves a top-tier fork. We’ve equipped the S-Works Epic AXS with a custom, Brain-equipped, RockShox SID WC fork, featuring a full-carbon upper, top-adjust Brain Fade, and custom offset. - Lighting-fast, effortless shifts every single time—no matter how hard you crank the pedals or how abusive the conditions. SRAM’s top-shelf XX1 Eagle AXS drivetrain sets the bar with outstanding battery life and stellar performance.
Hey you, yeah, you...the one with the scale out seeing which of the six identical tires on the shelf is the lightest. Sure, some might call you a bit obsessive, but no worries, here, the S-Works Epic is speaking exactly the same language. Countless design hours, endless test laps, terabytes of telemetry data, all of it to make sure not a single ounce of speed was left on the table. Mixing hardtail efficiency and full-suspension capability to impressively quick results, the S-Works Epic has always been defined by an obsessive commitment to speed. Well, that and over 100 World Cup wins and podiums. 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. Redesigned with a focus on efficient power transfer and better handling performance, the S-Works Epic frame features a 15-percent stiffer rear triangle in order to take full advantage of the BRAIN's new race-tuned pedaling platform. A dedicated layup schedule and the use of our top-shelf FACT 12m Carbon takes weight savings yet a step further than it's stablemates, while the pièce de résistance comes in the form of a carbon fiber shock link, combining to shave a total of over 100 grams from the previous generation S-works frame—no easy task, mind you. Pairing perfectly with the Brain rear shock for the most balanced suspension performance on an Epic yet, the S-Works' Position-Sensitive Brain fork benefits from RockShox's svelte-yet-stiff SID SL Ultimate chassis, improving front-end stiffness and handling precision while keeping the grams at bay. SRAM's flagship XX1 Eagle AXS group certainly fits the bill when only the best will do, dispatching shifts with electronic authority. Meanwhile, we tasked Roval with creating an entirely new Control SL rim that wouldn't just be able to go toe-to-toe with the Epic's newfound speed and handling performance, but add a bit of its own into the mix as well. - Created specifically to match the increased capabilities of the Epic, the Roval Control SL rim introduces a completely new offset rim profile that features a 29-millimeter-wide internal width and not only increases strength and reduces weight, but also improves pinch-flat resistance by 22-percent. - 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-Works 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. - SRAM's XX1 Eagle AXS isn't just the lightest electronic MTB groupset on the market, it's also designed to withstand World-Cup winning chain loads while snapping off instantaneous shifts to ensure you're never caught on the back foot.
You know what they say, when the grams go away, speed comes out to play. Benefiting from the lightest EVO frame we've ever created and the most aggressive iteration of our Progressive XC Geometry to date, the S-Works Epic EVO made a few calls and assembled a dream team supporting cast to offer a capability-to-weight ratio that skips impressive and jumps straight to flat-out mindblowing. 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. For the S-Works Epic EVO we also made sure that every last component to have the honor of gracing its FACT 12m carbon frame was just as dedicated to finding the ultimate balance of lightness, efficiency, and hard-charging capability. For proof, just take a look at the seemingly logic-defying, stiffer-lighter-stronger masterpiece that is the new Roval Control SL wheelset, and SRAM's XC-light yet trail-tough electronic XX1 Eagle AXS group, and wireless electronically-actuated Reverb AXS dropper post. - Created specifically to match both the weight savings and increased capability of the S-Works Epic and S-Works Epic EVO, the Roval Control SL rim introduces a completely new offset rim profile that features a 29-millimeter-wide internal width and not only increases strength and reduces weight, but also improves pinch-flat resistance by 22-percent. - 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. - Pairing the stiff yet lightweight SID Ultimate chassis with RockShox's lightest-ever Charger Race Day damper makes for quite the package, impressively cutting weight while still managing to pack in truly impressive levels of performance, precision, and control. - The pinnacle of drivetrain performance, SRAM's XX1 Eagle AXS combines next-gen wireless technology, incredibly accurate shift performance, and game-changing versatility to drastically redefine the riding experience.
