For years now, one bike could always be counted on as a threat in any XC race—the S-Works Epic. The S-Works Epic has stormed its way to more World Championship titles and Olympic medals than anyone can count. This, right here, is the fast track to the podium.
Race courses have evolved. They’re more technical, steeper, and more challenging. The Epic stays well ahead of the curve, with handling that’s nimble, yet confident and controlled. A longer reach, slacker head angle, and custom fork offset all play a part here. Evolution, it turns out, is a beautiful thing.
