The S-Works Epic Hardtail is the lightest production frame to date. Impressive, yes, but it's much more than that. We've also created the most capable and comfortable cross-country machine ever, because you're not fast if you're being pummeled by the trail. It's a game changer.
- At 775 grams, the new S-Works Epic Hardtail chassis is the lightest production hardtail frame on earth. What’s more, we’ve designed it to be incredibly capable and comfortable, with progressive geometry and an advanced composite layup that boosts vertical compliance. We’ve optimized every inch of this frame, precisely tailoring the carbon and resin mix to create the perfect balance of weight, strength and compliance. We’ve gone
full geek on the S-Works frame, obsessing over the shape of every overlap layer. While 3-D tailoring an overlap probably sounds like overkill, the extra time and labor spent doing it allows us to eliminate extraneous composite plies that were adding weight, but not improving strength. In other words, there’s a science to the weight savings.
