Ellsworth Epiphany XC 27.5 Full Suspension

5/5 (1 Reviews)
MSRP : $8995.00


Product Description

The Epiphany has long been considered the industry bench mark for fully active long travel trail bikes, referred to by the press as the "Holy Grail of Trail Bikes". The Epiphany Carbon brings us the Ellsworth Aerospace Carbon Material and HD, High Pressure molding techniques in the beloved Epiphany configuration. The Zero Energy Loss, Fully Active Suspension--pretty much says it--it's on all the time for increased traction and control and less rider fatigue, but has ZERO energy lost to the suspension. There's really nothing like it, and with the new Carbon Front Triangle, and the 27.5" wheels, this beauty is a performer.

Strengths:    Light, stiff, climbs like a mountain goat

Weaknesses:    price

Bottom Line:   
Demo'd a medium a few weeks ago In Rochester NY.
i ride an Ellsworth TRUTH and i was blown away by how well this thing rode.
it sucked up roots like they weren't there.
it climbed better than my TRUTH because it sucked up roots and maintained traction (and seemed lighter and stiffer).
i'm in the process of buying a frame/fork and building it up.
i'll provide and when complete.

Epiphany SST1 conversion from Trail to XC, possible?

Hi guys, I'm pretty much a newbie in MTB. Therefore any advice is most welcome. Well, a little about me.. I'm a road cyclist for the past 20yrs, therefore I kinda prefer an XC setup rather than trail (with lots of slack). I’m on the Epiphany SST1, with Lefty. Currently in Tokyo and riding trai ...
