Description

Calling GX Eagle Mountain Bike

If Evil Bikes' The Following can be described as an all-mountain monster that's happiest running big lines, then The Calling is best described as its sassy, irreverent, trail-leaning little brother. With a relatively reserved 131mm of rear DELTA travel, compared to much of the Evil line, the Calling is the perfect partner for the early morning mission to the summit and the after-work hot laps. We’ve paired the carbon Calling’s 27.5in frame with SRAM’s GX Eagle drivetrain and e*thirteen components for a capable trail bike, ready to seek out adventure with a cheeky aggression that'll have you cackling joyously out of every berm and opportunity for air.

Evil's approach to geometry is one of the key elements to The Calling's versatility. The frame's linkage includes flip chips that alter the bottom bracket height and head tube angle. In Low setting, the bottom bracket sits at just 13.3in off the ground with a head tube angle of 66.4 degrees. When dropped to the X-Low setting, the bottom bracket drops to 13in off the ground, and the head tube slacks out to as low as 65.8 degrees. The Calling is definitely down for a party, and its long, low countenance is finished with 16.9in chainstays (17.0 in the X-Low setting) that dice techy lines like a cat on carpet. The lightweight carbon frame is worth noting, as the internal cable routing and stiff material further the clean yet playful ride.

Evil stuck to a linkage driven single pivot with a specific aim to achieve a level of adjustability not allowed by DW-link's four-bar design. DELTA was originally designed as a platform to test different suspension curves, so it's most basic, defining property is virtually limitless mutability. Given that fact, shock tune may be more important on a DELTA bike than on any other suspension design, and Evil builds in a sag measurement system to make tuning a quick, painless affair. Just reset the little toggle, hop in the saddle, and air up.

The Calling's DELTA pivot location reduces the need for shock damping, so you can ride the included RockShox Debonair fully open—even while ascending root-latticed treescapes and rocky switchbacks. Since it doesn't have to fight bob with heavy handed damping, DELTA strikes an apparently contradictory balance between a supple, light-off-the-top early stroke and a mid-stroke that keeps the tires glued to the trail. As it approaches the triple digit end of its 131mm, the travel arc ramps up to maintain a bottomless feel that belies Evil's gravity roots. It takes a lot to find DELTA's limits, and its spirited compression arc provides the perfect alibi for when you need a timely bail-out.

We’ve hand-picked components for this build for the balance of performance and price with an eye on creating a playful and capable spec, headlined by SRAM’s GX Eagle drivetrain and e*thirteen components. A Rockshox Pike fork offers 140mm of travel up front to absorb all the chatter and rock drops of your favorite trails. The e*thirteen LG1 wheels, paired to their TRS All-Terrain tires provide a capable and fast-engaging platform for efficient pedaling and confidant descending.

Is it really just a 3 year warranty on this bike? Or is it lifetime? It would be really hard for me to spend this amount of money on a bike if it only has a 3 year warranty. Thanks, Chris

High prices.

I really love those high prices. They make me just wanna shit. How is a entry level person supposed to get anywhere. I'm feeling like I wanna quit riding altogether.

Why would entry level riders be looking at a bike of this level?
