Build This Bike

The day of Wreckoning is upon us. When the first iteration of this Evil bike was launched in 2016, it turned our world upside down: a 29" wheeled bike with 6.5" of travel, spry and playful enough to be your everyday driver?! In a time of 29'ers, that felt like riding a double decker bus, but this agile juggernaut was revolutionary. It seemed like madness, and we all loved it; so much so that it has stayed relevant and sought after for four years. In that time, Evil has experimented with and created new mountain bikes, bike shaped skateboards, and even the odd gravel grinder (Chamois Hagar, anyone?). A lot of what they learned has been implemented in the recently released Following V3, the 29'er that started a short-travel revolution and has reinvigorated it once again. Now, they've brought all that new know-how over to the Wreckoning, the world-crusher of their line-up.

In this highly refined frame we see the continued utilization of Super Boost +. This allows Evil to increase the length and diameter of the main pivot hardware, a component of crucial importance in this single pivot suspension design, as well as being able to increase the space inside the rear triangle for ever-larger tires (up to 2.6) while making the whole structure stiffer, stronger, and longer lasting. Oh, and you still get the short, snappy 430mm chainstays that helps make this bike so capable of railing a corner with maximum roost.

Evil also incorporated other smart features like their scientifically tested Sound Mound noise-cancelling chainstay protector and a new, lightweight, and removable chain guide. The seat-tube now sits at an upright 76.5 degrees, putting you in a comfortable, upright pedaling position no matter how tall you are. All the cables and hoses are internally routed, and use built in guides so you don't have to fumble with flashlights and fishhooks to route a new brake. And, should you feel pressed to ask, every frame size includes a water bottle mount.

The Wreckoning V3 has undergone all the modern day geometry updates, bringing it squarely in line with what we expect today's big travel trail bikes to be. A generous but not glutinous front center gives the bike all the high speed stability we've come to expect from a bike that you might equip with the new RockShox ZEB or Fox 38, and a sub 65 degree headtube angle means this bike is ready for business. Oh, did we forget to mention light-weight? The new frame drops weight from the old across the board, using the latest in carbon fiber construction processes to keep the bike strong, stiff, and playful.

If you're looking for one bike to smash enduro races, take to Whistler, and go for after-work rides with the kids, you'd be hard pressed not to choose an Evil Wreckoning. And, if you're looking to build the most dialed, custom Wreckoning out there, Fanatik is the place to do it.
