Evil Insurgent V3 Frame
Born out of the smoldering ashes of mountain biking’s past, the Insurgent carved out a reputation for cleaning technical sufferfest climbs and still leaving riders with the energy to get slideways on the way down. It was expected it to be successful. What everyone didn’t know was how this 27.5”er would quickly become the de-facto bike for a fun focused faction of riders.
With more travel, 168mm versus 150mm on the Insurgent v1, the new Insurgent celebrates the long send. It’s an on-command jump, drift, manual, pop, trail mulching machine. This is a bike built for the shits and giggles that happen when one isn’t timed or judged. The Insurgent doesn’t try to win enduro tracks. It shreds them.
The Insurgent is compatible with both full 27.5” and a mixed wheel 29”/27.5” setup. Small wheels for the park, jumps, whips, and berms, or mixed (MX) for increased front wheel traction, steeper lines, heavy slabs and chunder crushing. 27.5” never died. It just quit caring what people think. Enter the Insurgent.
