ENTER THE INSURGENT
If necessity is the mother of invention, then the pursuit of useless is the father of joy. Because it’s the unnecessary things that make life sing: the berm slash, the millisecond manual you slip between turns, the sloppy scrub, the bar hump to make the crew laugh.
With more travel, 168mm versus 150mm on the Insurgent v1, both iterations of the new Insurgent celebrate 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. So cut the rhetoric. Cut the tape. Cut the corners by clearing them completely, switchback to switchback and back into the future. The Insurgent doesn’t try to win enduro tracks. It shreds them.
PARK SHREDDER OR ENDURO RACER?
The Insurgent is available in two configurations with well-curated build kits. The Insurgent MX 29 is designed for enduro and steep, aggressive trail riding. Offering the benefits of both wheel sizes, the 29” front wheel provides the ultimate in upfront handling and monster truck capabilities while maintaining the corner slap-ability of the 27.5” rear wheel. Enduro racer or aggressive trail rider with a taste for the steeps? This is for you.
Park laps and freeride lines more your thing? The Insurgent 27.5 is the ultimate small wheel shred machine for crushing your favorite jump line and all-day park laps. The 27.5” wheels keep the precision level high when you’re deep into a set of berms and you require max levels of maneuverability.
LONGER TRAVEL: 168mm of rear wheel travel paired with a 180mm (27.5) or 170mm (MX 29) fork for crushing trail, floating over rough stuff, and not being afraid to let go of the brakes when a rock garden rises out of the earth.
CLIMB FRIENDLY GEOMETRY: Because climbing still matters to most riders, a steeper 78.2° seat tube angle makes for an upright position and longer reach. Designed for a 44mm offset fork with 180mm travel (27.5) and 44mm offset fork with 170mm travel (MX 29).
SUPER BOOST SPACING: Why? Strong. Firm. Burly. Pick your poison. Super Boost is simply stiffer in all the right places with the added benefit of increased tire clearance. The Insurgent is designed to accommodate up to a 27.5” x 2.6” rear tire.
LONGER SLACKER: Longer reach means a more centered and confident body position for when the going gets fast. Head tube angle of 64.7° X-LOW (27.5) and 63.5° X-LOW (MX 29).
INSURGENT BIKE FEATURE - WHEELIE SHORT CHAIN STAYS: Make bikes shred again. Short 430mm chain stays mean wheelies for days and manuals for months. Because when the front wheel is off the ground, the fun meter is red lining. Usually.
WIDER MAIN PIVOT: Super Boost rear axle spacing allowed us to widen the main pivot hardware. The increased stiffness and strength means you can flex on your riding partners instead of your bike.
STAY QUIET: Sound Mounds are a key feature to our sound-canceling chainstay protector. Stop that cringe-inducing chain slap that makes other riders not call you back.
DIRECT INJECTION CHAIN GUIDE: A chain that stays in line stays on the ring. Evil’s integrated chain guide is indexed for 30/32/34/36 chain rings and features built-in silencing rubber to keep it quiet on trail.
TRUNNION MOUNT SUSPENSION: Suspension is more than just a shock. The way the shock moves throughout the stroke is critical to the smoothness of the travel. With Evil’s trunnion mount, the rear shock is actuated via dual row angular contact bearings and the shock feels buttery smooth off the top.
