Announcing our 2016 Demo Fleet: Ibis and Niner!

After much deliberation and careful consideration of several factors, we’re excited to announce the fleet of demo bikes our customers will have access to on all of our 2016 trips.  If you haven’t checked out our “What’s Included” page yet, Chasing Epic includes amazing high-end demo bikes with all trip bookings.  That’s right, not only do we take you on the best trails in the best destinations in the western US, but we also give you the best bikes to ride while we’re there.  You can thank us later.

We took several factors into consideration when choosing this year’s demo bike fleet: bike performance, spec level, targeted riding type, suspension, company size, reliability, appropriateness for specific terrain, etc.  Basically, we wanted to match our demo fleet to the type of riding we want our customers to do, and to the locations we serve in 2016.  Trust us, you can take any one of these bikes out on just about any trail in the country and you’ll have fun- but we wanted to match them more specifically.
