The S-Works Epic is the fastest XC rig on the planet—a bike with more World Champ titles, Olympic medals, and Cape Epic wins than you can count. And now, we’re offering the S-Works Epic in a limited-edition, Troy Lee Designs frame and fork combination. Head to toe, this rig looks fast. Of course, countless race wins around the world testify to how damn fast the S-Works Epic truly is, but you know, it never hurts to look the part. At the heart of it all is the S-Works FACT 12m carbon fiber frame—a chassis that offers the best combination of stiffness, strength, and light overall weight available. This bike, however, isn’t merely fast, it’s also one of the most capable cross-country machines on the World Cup circuit, with a geometry that’s designed to let you tackle the most technical courses at speed, with complete control. Speaking of speed and control, the TLD-edition frame sports 100mm of insanely efficient front and rear suspension. That efficiency comes courtesy of the ultralight RockShox SID World Cup fork and Brain 2.0 rear shock. The unique inertia valve in both the front and rear suspension help the bike stay firm and fast when the trail is smooth and then automatically become plush (and even faster) when the trail suddenly fills with rocks and roots. Brain-equipped suspension is, quite simply, suspension made smart. And since this is the TLD-edition we’re talking about, we also gave that RockShox SID World Cup fork and Micro Brain rear shock matching Troy Lee graphics. - S-Works FACT 12m carbon fiber frame is the best combination of stiffness, strength, and light overall weight, resulting in the utmost efficiency and speed. Meanwhile, the new geometry, RockShox Brain shock, and 100mm of travel, make the Epic the best handling, fastest XC bike you've ever been on. - Custom Micro Brain shock offers easy tuning and unrivaled efficiency - Our custom RockShox SID WC fork with Brain features a full-carbon upper, top-adjust Brain Fade, and a custom offset, making it the perfect match to the new Epic.

Let's not kid ourselves—downhill is all about speed. And when it comes to squeezing every last ounce of fast out of a track, your machine needs to be just as fine-tuned as your skills. That's why we offer our legendary, World-Cup-proven S-Works Demo 8 as a frameset. It's constructed from our finest carbon fiber, FACT 11m, for unparalleled stiffness and strength. Meanwhile, it's been built aboard our ultra-capable S3 27.5 Geometry to ensure a roomy top tube for added control, ultra-short, nimble chainstays, a low bottom bracket that keeps you feeling planted, and a slack front end that provides the utmost in responsive handling at speed. For suspension, this Demo features 200mm of travel delivered via a game-changing custom Ohlins TTX rear shock with both high- and low-speed compression adjust. Altogether, it's a blank canvas of pure performance and potential speed. Build it how you want it, and race it like you mean it. - The frame features a full FACT 11m carbon fiber construction for low weight and heightened levels of strength and stiffness, which is amplified by its asymmetrical frame design that still leaves plenty of access. This has also been paired with our proven S3 Geometry that increases maneuverability and responsiveness, while the 200mm of travel at the rear makes the bike capable of taking on the biggest of hits in stride. - Custom Ohlins rear shock delivers unparalleled DH performance.

With more World Championship titles, Olympic medals, and Cape Epic wins than you can count, the S-Works Epic LTD frame can truly be built as the fastest XC bike on the planet. Fast and flat, rowdy and technical, punchy and hard—no matter the course, it’s the best tool to get you to the top of the podium. Race courses have evolved over the past few years. They're more technical, steeper, and more challenging to ride. But instead of quivering in our boots, we saw this as an opportunity to make something special—something that both World Cup athletes and XC riders alike can instantly feel the benefit from. We looked at the sum of parts that make a bike handle well, like the head angle, reach, stack, chainstay length, fork offset, etc., and reevaluated all of it. Increasing the reach made a bike that was more stable at speed and generally more comfortable to ride. Dropper posts? Yep, those fit, and not just a short-travel XC option, but full-length droppers that fit in the 30.9mm seat tube. Head angle? We slacked that out, but not without evaluating the overall handling package. It now lands on a custom offset, 42mm fork that works with the slacker head angle in order to behave itself in tight corners and through switchbacks. Next comes Brain 2.0. The original Brain changed the way the bike world looked at suspension, both in its inefficiencies and benefits alike. And oh, was it good. It won races and put a flag in the ground for us as a true leader in innovation and suspension development, but we knew that we could make it better. Simple physics told us that, by moving the Brain closer to the rear axle, it would be in the most sensitive spot. And after countless hours with the RockShox team, the Brain became more than just a slight upgrade. It's totally reborn. Now, it reacts seamlessly to bump forces, it has much more consistent damping performance, and finally, it integrates the hoses into the suspension links. This, in turn, improves oil paths, and it creates an incredibly sleek package that outperforms anything on the market. The Epic also has a rider Rider-First Engineered design that places complex carbon pieces in all the right places, and this greatly increases stiffness in the front-end for a vast improvement in ride quality and control. To go along with this, each frame size has size-specific tubes that result in the stiffest, best riding XC bike we've ever developed—no matter the frame size. And while stiffness, Brain technology, and geometry features are cool and all, we know what you're thinking, 'What about weight?' We're glad you asked. With the goal of the new Epic to be the fastest XC mountain bike we've ever made, weight was at the top of our priorities list. We started with an efficient frame layout and tube shapes that feature clean cable routing, integrated channels through the shock extension, straight tubes with less curves, and optimized torsion profiles in every section. And, if you're curious, this weight savings is equivalent to shedding a chainstay and shock extension from the previous Epic—nearly 350 grams. This frame comes equipped with a custom RockShox Micro Brain rear shock w/ a Spike Valve. Building out the rest of that dream build is up to you—we hope to see it out on the course soon. S-Works FACT 12m carbon fiber frame is the best combination of stiffness, strength, and light overall weight, resulting in the utmost efficiency and speed. Meanwhile, the new geometry, RockShox Brain shock, and 100mm of travel, make the Epic the best handling, fastest XC bike you've ever been on.

You like gettin’ rowdy, we like gettin’ rowdy, so we figured, “Why not create a bike that lets us do the thing we all love most?” Well, that’s exactly what we did with the Enduro. Its playful and nimble 27.5-inch wheels and modern frame have been purpose-built to make short work of the rockiest, gnarliest, and steepest trails, while still being able to climb well enough to get you there. Witness the sickness. Our quest was to create the perfect long-travel trail bike, and it all began with a close look at the geometry. Basically, we modernized it— slacking out the front end, lengthening the top tube, shortening the chainstays, and lowering the bottom bracket. All of this together makes the bike truly feel glued to the ground, and the platform is more responsive and capable than ever. We then added some crucial bits to make your ride, well, better. We're talking stuff like integrated storage with a SWAT Door at the down tube, a triumphant return to a threaded bottom bracket, and internal cable routing with guides that make cabling super easy. And to keep the weight down, this S-Works frame is constructed from our top-tier FACT IS-X 11m carbon fiber.

There's not much that matches the feeling of powering up a pitch on a featherweight bike, and we designed the new S-Works Epic Hardtail frame with this in mind. It's less than 900 grams, exceptionally stiff, and it features a Rider First Engineered design. It's the perfect jumping off point to begin creating your dream build. Over the last decade, cross country racing has evolved into a completely different animal—the courses are rowdier, more technical, and overall, they're inherently different. Because of this, we realized that the best bike for the job needs to not only be lightweight and stiff but also be able to descend and climb with equal prowess. Determining the best geometry was the easier of the two, as we took our current XC race geo and added some trail DNA to the mix. This equates to a longer top tube, a shortened head tube, and a slacked-out front end, the result of which is a tremendous increase in downhill stability, plus a wider fit range. And just as importantly, this doesn't require any sacrifice of climbing proficiency. The weight aspect was more complicated, though. We were posed with the question, "How do you take weight out of something that's already so light?" But the answer was relatively obvious: you get the best mountain bike engineers together in one room and let the magic come out. Up until now, there were two ways to lighten up a frame—use less of the same grade of carbon or use less of a higher-grade carbon. Option one is never a viable solution as it sacrifices stiffness and strength, two attributes that shouldn't be tampered with. And while we did end up using option two, we weren't content with the amount of weight we could cut out by just using a different grade of carbon. So how else do you cut weight? Well, we began looking at our layup schedules to see if they could be improved, which shed light on a new discovery—layup inefficiencies. Beginning with our Rider-First Engineered frame technology, each size Epic Hardtail is specifically tailored to size—every carbon layup and tube are exclusively selected based upon hundreds of hours of collected ride data. What does this mean for you? It not only creates the optimal balance of rigidity, weight, and responsiveness across every frame size, but it led us to the discovery of how to save weight through the studying of the layup. Through extensive layup studies, we made the discovery that, by further controlling the construction and layup schedules, we could drastically decrease weight, all while maintaining the ride characteristics that you'd expect from a top-level XC race bike. With this discovery, each frame now features complex cut carbon plys that allow difficult junctions to be covered with less overlap. And while this does complicate the carbon frame puzzle by adding more pieces to the mix, it allows us to design and place them more intelligently. The result of this is a lighter frame, stronger junctions, and a drastic increase in stiffness. We then took the weight savings one step further by using Japanese military ballistic-grade carbon, which we now call 12m, to create the lightest mountain bike we've ever made. How much lighter of a frame, you ask? Less than 900 grams for a size Large frame—the same weight as a full 24oz Purist water bottle. - To provide the optimal blend of stiffness, crazy light weight, and strength, we constructed the frame from our S-Works FACT 12m carbon fiber. And when combined with our XC 29 Geometry, this Epic is guaranteed to deliver uncompromising, blistering speed and agile handling come race day—no matter the course.
