It comes to you in a moment, the sudden realization that youâ€™ve fallen in love with your bike. The first ride on an Epiphany 29 often results in that phenomenon. With a perfect match of active suspension and fast rolling 29â€ wheels, youâ€™ll be able to tackle any and all trail conditions with aplomb.
The heart and soul of the carbon fiber Epiphany 29 frameset is the ACTIVE Energy Efficient Suspension. Itâ€™s a true four-bar linkage design that isolates pedal and braking forces from bump input. The result is a bike that pedals beautifully, yet soaks up the jarring impacts from the trail. Paired with the custom-tuned Fox DPS rear shock, ACTIVE delivers incredible traction and control throughout the 120mm of rear suspension travel. Youâ€™ll ride with more control and comfort, and youâ€™ll get there faster and with less effort.
The Epiphany 29 employs a hassle-free, fully internal routing system to shield your hoses and cables from the elements, and a tapered head tube ensures strength and stability for your steering system. It takes a 34.9mm clamp-on front derailleur, a 30.9mm seatpost, a 73mm English threaded bottom bracket, and a Boost 12x148mm thru-axle rear hub. Complete bikes are available with Shimano XTR, XT, and SLX in both 1x and 2x configurations as well as a SRAM XO1 1x build. The frameset comes with a Cane Creek 1-1/8 – 1-1/2â€ semi-integrated headset and a Hex Taper 12x148mm rear thru-axle. It is recommended for use with a 130mm front suspension fork.
