Preview: Ellsworth Epiphany C XC 27.5

03.27.2014

While I might quibble with the marketing language Ellsworth employs, the fact is their bike does pedal quite efficiently and that traction is good. If you live for climbs, the Epiphany C XC is your kind of bike. Fortunately, the Epiphany does more than climb--it's also a capable trailbike with razor-sharp handling.

In the unthinkable event of nuclear holocaust, only the Nukeproof Pulse Pro and the cockroaches would be left standing. Well, actually, Nukeproof's speed-seeking downhill rig wouldn't be standing at all—it would be hurtling down technical terrain at mind-numbing speeds. And it would crush any cockroach that scurried into its path. Watch this video to find out why.

03.07.2014

Although we’ve never piloted a monster truck, the feeling can’t be far off from riding the TF01 29. It’ll jump a set of 20 cars no problem, but making that turn at the end of the run can prove difficult. I felt invincible aboard the BMC until I needed it to change directions, at which point I felt, well, slightly less so.
