Wreckoning LS

Blur The Trail | 29" Wheels | 166mm Rear Suspension

The Wreckoning is our big-wheeled DH rig. Since its inception in 2016, this bike has received glowing accolades, and we found the bits to make it even better. Lightly Salted with a few key updates, top-shelf suspension on every build, and race-proven geometry, the Wrecker is ready to combine rippin’ speed and stoke on the same platter. Limited edition Baja Fog and Clay Porter colorways will blend well with the blurred forest around you. That’s right, the Dark Lord requested scorched-earth tones this season.

Big-wheeled Pedal
Assisted Assassin

THE PEDAL POWERED DH LEGEND

A heaped shovel of gravity fills the heart of every Evil machine, and our venerated Wreckoning maintains its dark reputation of trail-melting speed. This latest iteration of the 29” wheeled 166mm platform comes Lightly Salted with updates while maintaining the geometry and suspension kinematics that riders love and trust on the burly stuff. Whether racing the clock or punching out to hit the trail, this bike is built to send deep and spin up comfortably for another.

BLUR THE TRAIL

The Wreckoning LS has nudged the limits of balance and grip, vetted by racers and weekend rippers alike. This is the bike you'll find "too fast for me" with. The platform for lapping extra gnarly descents that offers a cozy pedaling position on the next climb.  

Even our best machines can be improved, augmented, and better shred-prepped. What's been lightly salted? We've found a few dark elements to crank up the Wreckoning’s trail hungry appetite. Alongside a pair of limited-edition color options, we've added SRAM's UDH derailleur hanger that's easily found at your local bike shop. If the tiny backwoods bike shop has any modern hanger in stock, it'll be this one.  

Trails and trees are always better than greasy garages, and our engineers aim to reduce your wrenching time. We've heard the battle cries over trunnion shock spacers and responded by capturing them in the linkage, so you no longer have to fiddle and fumble when installing shocks.      

THE DEVIL IS IN THE DETAILS

UDH COMPATIBLE

Slap it sideways against a stump? All Lightly Salted models feature UDH hangers, easily replaced at your local shop.

WHEELIE SHORT CHAINSTAYS

Make Bikes Shred Again. Short 430mm chain stays mean wheelies for days and manuals for months.

ADJUSTABLE GEOMETRY

Flip yo' Chips! Choose LOW mode for everyday trail-slaying geometry, or flip to XLOW mode for a gravity-fed, park eating ride. 

INTEGRATED SAG METER

Dial in sag on your shred happy sled with this quick meter that hits right at the 30% mark. 

CALM AND COLLECTED

A rubber sound canceling chainstay protector and an integrated chain guide keep the drivetrain silent and deadly. 

INTERNAL CABLE ROUTING

Ditch those archaic zip ties. Fully guided internal routing for clean looks, easy installation and worry-free maintenance.
