Description

Why We Like The Offering Mountain Bike Frame

We figured it was a matter of when, and not if, it was going to happen. The updated Offering from Evil Bikes is a chassis that many riders, ourselves included, were patiently waiting for with bated breath. Slotting in quite nicely between its established 29ers that include its 120mm travel Following and the 160mm Wreckoning, The Offering sports 140mm of squish that's the Goldilocks amount of travel for a bike that can pedal efficiently and isn't afraid to go full-send when called upon.

Naturally, if you're looking at this frame you might be on the fence between The Offering, its little brother The Following, and its big brother The Wreckoning. If you have an XC background and want a bike that offers a little more speed and confidence than a race bike but still keeps low weight and efficiency in mind, The Following might be your best bet. The Wreckoning is a different kettle of fish and is a full-on trophy truck that prefers plow mode and if you have more of a DH background and feel like you might be able to extract its full potential, go for it. But for most of us, The Offering hits a sweet spot with its all-mountain friendly 65.6 to a very evil 66.6-degree headtube angle, depending on fork travel and what setting you have the linkage flip chip in. With Super Boost spacing used on all of its current bikes, Evil is able to hack the length off of the chainstays to sub-17inch numbers to position the rear wheel right up against the seat tube, for a rear-end that's the same length as its 130mm travel 27.5-inch Calling. Quick line changes and lofting the front wheel up and over obstacles has never been easier.

Riding a DELTA link bike like this Offering offers an amazingly light-off-the-top early stroke while transitioning into a supportive mid-stroke that simply creates traction as you claw up and over loose rock ledges and slippery root balls. As you peg the fun meter deeper into its six-plus inches of travel, the kinematics create some ramping to help maintain a bottomless feel and prevents harsh bottom outs so you'll have the confidence to hit that double, huck-to-flat, or stomp that gap you've been eyeballing with the confidence that comes from its refined suspension platform. It takes a lot to find DELTA's limits which is fantastic for those looking to up their game and even Evil's own pro factory pilots.

This Offering is built up with a new, lighter layup that first appeared on the new Following and Wreckoning, further enhancing that engineered chassis flex that makes Evil bikes a track through hard corners and speed through chunky rock gardens instead of getting deflected off of its line. The marketing hyperbole of increased stiffness with more compliance isn't lost on this one and this bike is an absolute riot to ride and it's hard not to be a hooligan when aboard.
