Why We Like The Following GX Eagle Mountain Bike

Built to get us up the mountain fast so we can charge down even faster, The Following is one helluva machine for those of us that prefer the lighter feel and livelier handling of a short-travel bike. The Following comes with a playful yet capable 120mm of rear travel mated to a 130mm RockShox Pike fork. The DELTA suspension system is designed by the legendary Dave Weagle and it feels fast and nimble on flow trails, yet gives us the confidence to twist the throttle on steep trails full of rocks and drops.


A bike this playful should be reserved for the jump park, not for our local cross-country loops but as ever Evil proves us wrong. Evil outfits the bike with a geometry flip-chip, so for those big gravity days with fire road climbs we can throw it into the x-low setting and get slacker angles all around. Already outfitted with a spritely 67.7-degree headtube angle, the flip-chip can lower it a further .7-degrees. Combining that angle with big 29in wheels means rolling over the next big trail obstacle is nothing but a good time.


Coming in hot with the frame spec is a list of components that are smartly spec'd to withstand ride after ride of high-speed abuse. Highlights of this feature-packed build include Industry Nine hoops with quick-engaging Hydra hubs. We're stoked on the suspension package as well, featuring top-of-the-line RockShox components that support a lifetime of big sends and bigger hits. A Pike up front offers a supportive feel while the Super Deluxe shock makes it feel like we have a lot more than 120mm out back. SRAM's GX Eagle drivetrain throws in a huge amount of range that makes the mountains feel like molehills. We've never been ones to shy away from sending a black diamond trail head-on with an under-biked trail bike, which makes the Following that much more fun and capable for year-round riding.


*Due to unprecedented demand in the global supply chain and the bike industry over the last 18 months, material weight and exact components are subject to change. We are working diligently to keep tech specs updated, and any adjustments will be minor. If you have any questions, reach out to a Gearhead by chatting online or calling 1-888-276-7130.
