EVIL THE FOLLOWING

Price: £2,699.00 (frame only)

From: Silverfish, silverfish-uk.com

Seattle-based Evil Bike Co. Hasn’t been on the scene for that long, but in its eight years of existence, the trendy brand has made quite a splash with its cutting-edge carbon fibre frames and distinctive Delta suspension platform.

The first bike to come from Evil was actually an alloy downhill bike called the Revolt, which kicked things off in 2009. Unfortunately for Evil, however, those early days turned out to be a period that the company would soon rather forget. Having run into significant production issues with its Taiwanese manufacturing partner that saw nearly every Revolt frame break, Evil then relaunched two years later with a carbon fibre version, appropriately called the Undead. For such a small brand, the Undead proved to be an astoundingly popular race bike that many riders fell head over heels for – cementing Evil’s reputation as a forward-thinking design company.

Roll on another few years, and Evil has left the downhill race scene, found a new high-end carbon manufacturing facility, and is all about the trail bike. The company has two 27.5in bikes – the Insurgent (151mm) and the Calling (131mm), – along with two 29ers – the Wreckoning (160mm) and the Following (120mm). All models use carbon fibre frames, the same single-pivot suspension design, and a very similar aesthetic that is distinctively ‘Evil’. Because there are so few logos on the bike, it can actually be quite tricky telling which model is which.
