Evil's new Insurgent 27.5

Evil insurgent, evil

The new Insurgent has been getting a lot of attention at the bike shows this year. A long, low and slack full carbon machine with 151mm of rear travel that's been designed to deliver devilish amounts of fun out on the trail. Like the Following, the Insurgent uses Evil's DELTA Link suspension design, a modified single pivot configuration developed by Dave Weagle that uses short links between the swingarm and the shock to achieve a dual leverage rate curve. A flip chip allows the head angle to be set at either 65.6° or 64.8° when the bike is run with a 160mm fork, numbers that correspond with a bottom bracket height of either 346mm or a ground-hugging 334mm. Chainstay length is only minimally affected by the geometry changes, ranging from 430 - 432mm. Four frames sizes, S, M, L, and XL will be offered, and with a reach of 472mm for the XL, taller riders should still be able to achieve a comfortable fit.The bike's rear derailleur housing is routed internally (there's no option for running a front derailleur), while the brake housing runs along the underside of the top tube. ISCG tabs are in place around the bottom bracket shell, but most riders will probably choose to use the built in carbon chain guide that's mounted to the swingarm. for a review of how it rides click here http://www.tetongravity.com/story/bike/evils-new-uber-hyped-insurgent-bikefirst-impressions-from-interbike
