Evil Bikes - Insurgent

two wheeled
death machine

Do you repeatedly attempt to separate your tires from your rims in every corner, do you say lets take this ride mellow, does your trail bike find itself going slide ways... Those up hill both ways days just got a little less sucky. Short snappy chainstays, long top tube and a low BB set the stage for a bike that likes to party.

Evil Bikes - Insurgent

Let's cut the crap. There is no one bike to rule them all.

No magical, wheeled-unicorn that can be all things to all people. Here's what we have created: It's called the Insurgent and it is fun. The uncontrollable-cackling-while-roost-flies-off-your-back-tire variant of fun. Which is exactly what we were aiming for. The Insurgent will get you up that long, technical suffer-fest in style with plenty left in the tank to shred a trail slide ways—the kind of trail that everyone else calls a "DH trail."

"Wait," you ask. "Isn't this new bike just an Uprising with 27.5 (a.k.a. "650b") wheels?"

No. And yes… but better.

Here's the deal, the Insurgent has the same fearless handling up front and short rear end that makes whipping the bike through corners obscenely fun. But we didn't just slap on slightly bigger wheels to the existing frame. The Insurgent gets many of the frame improvements that debuted on our Following model—most notably a lighter monocoque front triangle and a streamlined version of Dave Weagle's DELTA suspension system.

We also gave the Insurgent a sleek, integrated chain guide and designed the frame to allow better access to your rear shock, for all those moments when you want to get all fiddly with the thing. While we're on the subject of fiddling, the Insurgent also sports four different geometry positions that enable to you fine-tune the bike to fit your riding style and location, without adding yet another bike to your quiver.

Why six inches of suspension? We could have picked any damn travel we wanted without concern of being pigeonholed as a "trail" or "enduro" bike, but 151 millimeters (that's euro for "six inches") simply created the best balance between a fun, lively and responsive bike that can pop of everything and still crush the roughest of rock gardens.

Did we mention the cackling and the roost a-flying? Because, really, that's the point.

Want an All Day Pedaler? Try a 150 fork and set the flip chips to the LOW position and enjoy a 74.8° seat angle while the 66.1° head angle keeps the descents in control and the party level high.

Want an All Mtn, Bike Park, Enduro Slayer? Try 160-170 forks with the flip chips in the XLOW position and experience a slack and low slung corner destroying play bike that likes to jump and square off corners.

Why does the chain ride so close to the chain stay?

Due to progressive kinematics, tight clearances and the need for super stiff chain stays we increased the chain stay heights which gives about 2-3mm of chain clearance just like a motocross bike.. Braaap
