Simply put, the Evol is our dream bike in custom-butted alloy reality. Enthusiastic and aggressive, Evol’s a trail bike for enhanced fun-factor as you’re ragging it round the trails. Capable enough for racing enduro, and flattering enough that you’ll be grinning from ear to ear the whole time.
With contemporary geometry, Evol is slack, low, and long. The slack head angle inspires confidence when descending at high speeds and the low bottom bracket means you can throw it hard into every corner.
A comfortable neutral riding position keeps your weight central so you won’t waste energy on the uphill slogs.
