This bike kicked off the shred-trail 29er movement, and Evil hasn't hit the mute button on loud, fast, and fun times. They need to let the volume roar and this bike needs to claw after every extra-credit popportunity. Oh, and it drifts uphill too.
The Following LS updates include a pair of limited-edition colorways and SRAM’s Universal Derailleur Hanger (UDH). The idea behind the UDH is that no matter where you are in the world you can find the right replacement hanger for your bike.
Riding is far better than wrenching, and Evil engineers aim to reduce your garage time. They’ve heard the battle cries over trunnion shock spacers and responded by capturing them in the linkage, so you no longer have to fiddle and fumble when installing shocks. To polish this shiny knife, Evil will offer lifetime bearing warranty for Offering LS frames. Original owners can register their bikes on the Evil website. See their warranty site for more details to keep those pivots silky smooth.
While updating the Following LS, Evil maintained what makes it so special: lightning handling, shameless pop, and that uncanny ability to be there before you’ve decided to go there. They ratcheted that die-hard XC determination with an over-the-pedals 77° seat tube angle. It’ll climb, and climb, and climb. Then, just like the beloved Following, it’s first to the beer cooler at the bottom. Always.
It sits in full on seek-and-destroy, overly fit pedaller territory, but this is still the Following LS we’re talking about. Evil made sure it’s every bit the hidden line slasher and defier of categorization that it’s been from the start. The queen of pop more so than ever with an inline rear shock and just like the original Following, it can’t be compared to anything.
- UDH compatible: Slap it sideways against a stump? All Lightly Salted models feature UDH hangers, easily replaced at your local shop.
- Integrated shock spacers: Trunnion shock spacers are captured in the DELTA links so you can spend less time faffing while installing a shock and more time ripping trails.
- Short travel, tall ambitions: With 130mm fork and 121mm of rear travel, the Following is a full gas blast up and down the mountain.
- Wheelie short chainstays: Make Bikes Shred Again. Short 430mm chain stays mean wheelies for days and manuals for months.
- Pedal forward geometry: Evil's sacred geo combines pedal prowess with corner slaying traction through the pedal friendly 77° seat tube angle and 36mm bottom bracket drop.
- Super boost spacing: Stiffer in all of the right places with 157mm axle spacing and a wider main pivot making up the unified one-piece rear triangle.
- Adjustable geometry: Flip yo' chips ! Choose LOW mode for rippin’ XC race geo, or flip to XLOW mode for a gravity blast back to the parking lot.
- Integrated sag meter: Dial in sag on your shred happy sled with this quick meter that hits right at the 30% mark.
- Calm and collected: A rubber sound canceling chainstay protector and an integrated chain guide keep the drivetrain silent and deadly.
- Internal cable routing: Ditch those archaic zip ties. Fully guided internal routing for clean looks, easy installation and worry-free maintenance.
