While carbon often gets all the credit, alloy is far from obsolete, especially the M5 premium aluminum with D'Aluisio Smartweld technology found on the Epic Comp Alloy. It's lightweight, stiff, & can also take a beating. But not only that, you also get a redesigned version of the Brain suspension technology that's made the Epic famous.
