About evo Portland Demo Mountain Bikes:

*at this time only Santa Cruz Heckler e-Mountain Bikes are available for demo

Santa Cruz Demo Bikes

Santa Cruz has been building some of the best mountain bikes in the world for many years. We're stoked to have several different bikes for Portland area mountain bikers to test and compare, including the 29er Hightower, the versatile 5010, the more all-mountain Bronson, and the aggressive Megatower, giving riders lots of different options. The brand new Santa Cruz Heckler e-mountain bike, is Santa Cruz’s first foray into the pedal-assisted realm, with a long travel platform similar to the Nomad.

Transition Demo Bikes

Rider founded and operated, Transition Bikes out of Bellingham, Washington is all about having a good time on any trail. Our fleet of Transition demo mountain bikes include the versatile Scout Carbon, the Patrol Carbon, and Carbon Sentinel bikes. Regardless of your riding style, these demos are some of the raddest full suspension mountain bikes on the market.

Juliana Demo Bikes

Santa Cruz sister brand Juliana makes some of the best women's-specific mountain bikes on the market. Both the Rubion and Furtado models are available, giving ladies the chance to try these different 27.5" wheeled mountain bikes. The Rubion sports a burly 150mm of travel, while the Furtado offers a less-aggressive 130mm of travel.

EVIL Demo Bikes

EVIL makes some of the most sought after mountain bikes on the market. Not sure if you buy the hype? Demoing is the perfect opportunity to swing your leg over an EVIL bike and form your own opinion. evo Portland has five different models of Evil bikes available for demos, which is perfect for finding out which style of mountain bike suits you best. The 140mm 29er Offering is an awesome do-it-all bike for the Oregon Cascades range, the Following MB meanwhile keeps the big 29" wheels, but drops down to 120mm of travel for better cross-country performance, the 160mm travel 29er Wreckoning LB is an enduro and all mountain crusher, with the Calling and Insurgent LB rounding out the fleet.

Devinci Demo Bikes

Devinci mountain bikes are known for their high quality construction and innovative technology. We offer two models of Devinci mountain bikes for demos at evo Portland, the all mountain Troy Carbon 29, and the enduro Spartan Carbon. These demo mountain bikes are all at the top of their class across a range of different riding styles and functions. This is your chance to experience some of the best all mountain and trail bikes around.

Revel Demo Bikes

Revel Bikes was founded by a mix of dirt-bag bikers and die-hard creators and business people. Since they're rider-owned and privately-funded, they can do what they want. Their mission: to build the absolute best full-suspension mountain bikes—ever. In order to make the absolute best full suspension mountain bikes in the world, Revel is using the mostly unheard of yet legendary CBF suspension design, as well as the carbon layup technology developed by the original founder of ENVE. By obsessing over the details they've created a magic formula for great bikes. evo now carries Revel's two signature bikes, the 29er Rascal and the 27.5" Rail.
With all of these great options, riders of all types will be able to find the right mountain bike.

Back to evo Portland


Does evo only do bike rentals?
No, evo is a leading action sports retailer specializing in ski, snowboard, bike, surf, wake and skate, but each of our flagship locations in Portland, Seattle, and Denver are also so much more than mere stores. They’re community gathering spaces, art galleries, and travel bases for folks of all shapes, sizes and colors. We are a ski and snowboard shop, a clothing store, a skate shop, a bike shop, and a surf shop.
Does evo Portland have a full-service bike shop?
Yes! In addition to bicycle rentals and mountain bike demos, our Portland store has a full-service bike shop that will happily help you out with any bike tune-ups or repairs you need. We want to enable more people to bike Portland.
Are there not bike share programs in Portland?
While there are bike share programs like Biketown Portland, there are a number of drawbacks to them: 1) You can’t reserve them -- imagine ducking into a bar or boutique only to come back outside and find yourself stranded… 2) Bike share bicycles are not serviced regularly nor treated with much respect, as such, you’re likely to get a less-than-ideal experience with poor rolling, poor braking, and poor overall control.
Where are the best places to ride rental bikes in Portland?
For the adventurous souls, check out our Mountain Bike Trail Guide. However, if you’re looking to explore Portland proper and/or get your wits about you in regards to this whole mountain biking thing, then check out some of our favorite mellow Portland trails below.

Portland Bike Paths

Gateway Green

One of Portland’s newest parks, the Gateway Green started as 25 acres of unused space and has since been developed into a world-class recreation destination and an exciting demonstration of innovative urban habitat restoration. In addition to mountain bike singletrack, the park also features a bike skills area, gravity area with flow lines and jumps, and a cyclocross course.

Willamette River Loop

The complete Willamette River Loop is a 30-mile route along the river through the city’s south side. Although that might seem long, the entirety of the ride is relatively flat with excellent views and several areas to stop, rest, and relax. The full loop passes through the towns of Milwaukie, Oregon City, and Lake Oswego and finishes in Portland’s picturesque waterfront.

Willamette Greenway Bike Trail

If the 30-mile loop sounds intimidating, then check out the Willamette Greenway Bike Trail. A shorter (approximately 6-mile) alternative to the Willamette River Loop with similar views along the river.

Mountain View Trail

Winds through Powell Butte Nature Park and offers great views of, you guessed it, Mount Hood! While this particular path is paved, there are 20 miles of trails within the park that include mellow mtb singletrack that are fun to explore and easy for beginner mountain bikers to try their hand at.

Banks-Vernonia State Trail

An old railroad line, the Banks-Vernonia State Trail offers 21-miles through lush forest. Although it’s a bit outside of the city (approximately 25 miles west)
