The EVO will be the answer for many Epic riders. When the Epic was overhauled for 2018, it got a dropper friendly 30.9mm seat tube (was 27.2 before). It wasn't previously spec'd with a dropper, but most of the ones we sold had droppers added. Customers were also putting chunkier tyres on them (particularly on the front). The 2018 Epic is already the best XC bike, but people were wanting a little more "trail" out of it.
Basically, the EVO is the more shreddy Epic that quite a few customers are looking for. With a longer fork, it's taller in the front end making it a more comfortable marathon bike. Now spec'd with a dropper post, bigger fork, wider bars and meaty tyres, the Epic EVO is the all-day, backcountry ripper.
