XTR-rich Epic

Product Description

The Marathon takes it to the limit with a stellar Shimano XTR-rich spec. Imagine taking this bike out for 26 miles. Suddenly a Marathon sounds like a very appealing prospect.

  • The new FSR chassis delivers the 'Holy Grail' of uncompromised suspension in the rough stuff and a hardtail-firm pedaling platform on smooth terrain.
  • Frame: Optimized for BRAIN shock and sporting serious processing throughout - M4 Alloy, ORE downtube and toptube - every tube is fully butted and manipulated, sealed cartridge bearing at every pivot, disc tabs only, 90mm travel.
  • Specialized BRAIN shock, manufactured by Fox Racing Shox, sports an air spring with adjustable rebound.
  • Spherical bearings eliminate all shock side loads.
