If you don't already know who Andre Pepin is, let's take a moment to introduce him. Having started riding mountain bikes in his hometown of San Diego in 2005, and racing by the age of 16 in the Junior Expert category at the Fontana Winter Series, Andre caught the eye of the local bike manufacturer, Ellsworth, roughly seven years ago. He raced under their flag and went pro three years ago, while helping around the factory. Andre is now the Operations Manager at Ellsworth and handles purchasing and product development. One of those products he helped develop was the new Rogue 60, a 160mm carbon enduro machine. After working closely with the engineers over the past year to dial-in geometry, stack, and reach, as well as the general aesthetics and graphics of the new bike, the Rogue 60 was launched just in time for the 2016 riding season.
We checked out Andre's custom Rogue, which features one-off Mossy Oak Camo graphics, Shimano Di2 shifting, Reynolds carbon hoops, and Magura's wireless Vyron dropper post. Dive into the details and features of this sweet ride.
