Key Information

While carbon often gets all the credit, alloy is far from obsolete, especially the M5 premium aluminium with D'Aluisio Smartweld technology found on the Epic Comp Alloy. It's lightweight, stiff, and can also take a beating. But not only that, you also get a redesigned version of the Brain suspension technology that's made the Epic famous.

At the heart of the construction, you'll find M5 alloy with the exclusive D'Aluisio Smartweld Technology, which strategically places more welding material where it's needed, resulting in an aluminium bike that's more compliant and considerably stiffer at nearly every tube juncture.

The build of the Epic Comp Alloy is value-packed, featuring an 11-speed SRAM GX groupset, SRAM Level TL brakes, and a Roval Control alloy wheelset. Get ready, because this is going to be Epic.

  • The M5 Premium Alloy frame with D'Aluisio Smartweld technology finally brings you all the benefits of alloy, like durability, in a lightweight package.
  • A RockShox Reba RL fork soaks up the bumps up front, and features both compression and rebound adjustments.
  • An 11-speed SRAM GX groupset handles shifting duties, bringing the convenience of one-by to your XC rig.
