Make no qualms about it—this World Cup version of the Epic FSR Expert Carbon is purpose-built for racing. Compared to the "standard" version of this Epic, the World Cup features shorter tube lengths and chainstays and a significantly tighter geometry. Why? For more explosive power transfer and nimbler handling, of course. Additionally, it's specifically designed for one-by setups, which comes with the added benefit of an oversized chainstay for enhanced rigidity and power transfer to the rear end. Then you'll find our Brain technology at the fork and rear shock. What's Brain? It's an intelligent system that's able to interpret the difference between rider and trail input, so it stays firm under effort and plush over bumps. And when you add in a SRAM one-by kit, Shimano brakes, and Roval wheels, you'll find that there's nothing holding you back in putting out sheer speed.

  • By pairing a FACT 9m carbon fiber frame w/ an M5 alloy rear end with our World Cup XC 29 Geometry, this Epic places a focus on tight tube angles and light overall weight for explosive speed and nimble handling on the race circuit.
  • The RockShox SID Brain 29 fork provides 100mm of efficient travel. It features Brain technology that distinguishes between terrain and rider input in order to maximize your power, while a Brain Fade adjusts the oil flow when not hitting bumps.
  • A SRAM X1 rear derailleur controls a wide range of gears with reliable precision.
