Description

Lighter, faster, better handling—the Women's Epic Hardtail Comp Carbon is changing XC hardtails in a major way. Even better, it plays host to tons of women's-specific components & a custom shock tune that's ideal for lighter riders.

Tipping the scales around 1175 grams, it's one of the lightest mountain bike frames we've ever made. & to do so, we built the entire frame from our superlative FACT 11m carbon fiber that, until recently, was reserved for the top echelon of our mountain bikes. & with that done, we took some cues from our road bikes.

We borrowed the Rider-First Engineered™ concept that originated with the Tarmac. Now, the frame design applies specificity to every tube size & carbon layup for every frame size. This creates the optimal balance of rigidity, weight, & responsiveness, so every frame, regardless of size, performs just as we intended. We've also tweaked the geometry for more speed & stability by slacking-out the head tube angle, lengthening the top tube, & correcting the seat tube angle. This way, it feels more planted then ever, & frankly, it's stupid fast. We also widened the rear spacing to 12x148mm & included internal split-housing cable routing.

For the build, this Epic hits right on the money, opting for a custom-tuned RockShox Reba RL fork, SRAM GX 1x11 shifting, & ridiculously fast Roval Control alloy wheels. Every touch point has been hand-selected for female riders, as well, from the Sip Grips, to the bar width & crankarm length, all the way down to the superlative Women's Myth Sport saddle.
