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.

CANE CREEK HELM AIR
Cane Creek Helm is about conquering aggressive trail, enduro racing, and everything in between. By isolating each damping and air spring adjustment, Helm can be tuned for all terrains and riding styles, giving you ultimate control over your suspension set-up.
The DB IL features Cane Creek’s LinEair Spring to give you the best of both worlds - an air shock that feels more supple, linear and seamlessly supportive throughout its travel.
Long, slack and low geometry for a confidence inspiring and forgiving ride, with a slightly shortened chainstay for zippy handling.

It is important to get the right size bike, if the bike fits it will be faster, more comfortable, and easier to handle. You can also take into consideration the standover height to ensure you pick a bike that will be a good fit. If you measure your inside leg and ensure there is a minimum of an inch from the toptube to your crotch this will give you enough seatpost adjustment to find your optimum saddle height.

The build kits we use are tried and tested. It's stuff we know just works together. But if you want to change any part of the spec ... no matter how small ... then get in touch. Any change is no problem. Working with you to create dream bikes means we've built some pretty special bikes along the way.
You can interchange Love Mud components on this build at no additional cost. So if you want a different length of stem, a particular saddle or bar then let us know in the notes section in the checkout and we'll get in touch.
We hold big stocks of SRAM, Rockshox, WTB and regular build with Shimano, Hope, Cane Creek. We'll build your Sonder with any part that suits your needs. Give us a call and we will help spec and build a Sonder. With the same experienced mechanic helping throughout your build you know who to call if there's anything you want to know.
