Playful, tough, and intuitive mid travel full sus trail bike for feel good riding and sheer fun factor. Frame and rear shock at £899; full builds from £1599. Contact us to arrange a demo at one of our stores or to test ride over the weekend.

We want to ride backcountry and forest trails. We want to climb without (too much) effort, let loose on the downhills and flick round every twist and turn along the way. We want to be sprightly yet balanced, and above all, we want to enjoy every moment of it.

Simply put, the Evol is our dream built into a custom-butted alloy reality. An enthusiastic and aggressive trail bike designed for enhanced fun-factor as you’re ragging it round the trails, Evol is playful and rewarding enough for tearing it up on a summer afternoon, 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 forgiving slack head angle inspires confidence when descending at high speeds and the low bottom bracket means you can throw it hard into every corner.

You could take the Evol to an Enduro race, but it’s equally at home on a long day at the local trails. The geometry gives a comfortable neutral riding position, keeping your weight central so you won’t waste energy on the uphill slogs: save it for the descent!

The top tube mounted RockShox Deluxe RT 140 mm travel shock in the rear boosts traction on the steep and technical terrain for a comfier and more playful ride. Built around new metric shock standards for increased bushing overlap, the suspension is smooth, supple, and reactive, increasing sensitivity for a playful and enthusiastic feel.

Metric Shock Standard

Designed around metric shock sizing standard, with lengthened shocks and shorter strokes that increase bushing overlap for more smooth, supple, sensitive and reactive suspension action.​

Horst link suspension design

The tried and tested Horst link suspension design allows the suspension to stay active when braking.​

Tyre Clearance

​Clearance for up to 27.5 x 2.6in tyres.

Internal Cable Routing

​Internal routing in the front triangle for clean lines; threaded bottom bracket shell.

Sizing

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.
