The Epiphany Convert is the transformer of the Ellsworth lineup. Want crazy traction and a more forgiving ride? Run it with the factory spec 27.5+ wheels and 2.8” tires. Have an XC race this weekend on a blistering fast course? Swap in some lightweight 29” race wheels and go hammer down. It’s almost two bikes in one, and this transformability comes without compromise.
The foundation of the carbon fiber Epiphany Convert frameset is the ACTIVE Energy Efficient Suspension. It’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. You’ll ride with more control and comfort, and you’ll get there faster and with less effort.
The Epiphany Convert employs a hassle-free 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. The frameset comes with a Cane Creek 40 series tapered semi-integrated headset and a Hex Taper 12x148mm rear thru-axle. It can be used with 27.5+ or 29” wheels and is recommended for use with a 130mm front suspension fork.
