Product Info

It took off early, and it's increasing its lead: the Evil Following XT Complete Mountain Bike continues to push the boundaries of what a trail bike can be. With 120mm of travel and a steep seat tube it's a hill-climbing XC rocket, but with a super slack front end and a new, wider rear end, it's a precision jumper that can handle the chonkiest of chunder fields. This build features Shimano's new XT componentry, bringing the crispest shifts and that on/off braking feel back to the trails.

Product Details


UD Carbon Frame with Internal Cable Routing + Integrated Upper Guide

Plastic FantasticUni Directional Carbon with One Piece Molded construction from one of the best factories in the business.

Delta Suspension SystemThe DELTA system was conceived to, among other things, achieve very complex leverage rate curves that can be used to tune for varying track conditions, spring, and damper parameters. Ultimately the design achieves a high degree of suppleness early in the travel, with a very predictable high traction stage through the middle and a bottomless ramp at the end of the travel.

Flip ChipAt the heart of the Delta System is a simple chip that Evil calls the Flip Chip. At its most basic, the Flip Chip allows riders to change bottom bracket height and head angle by flipping the chip. This adjustment leaves the leverage rate curve and orientation of the linkage unchanged. The slight offset in bearing bore creates a simple interface that allows the rider to personalize their ride. It's about finding what works for the way you ride and the terrain you ride in.

Rockshox Deluxe Ultimate RCT ShockA perfect match for the current crop of ultra-lightweight and capable dream bikes. Deluxe Ultimate offers a fully checked damper design allowing for a Low Speed Compression adjustment and optimal traction control tuning. Featuring Maxima Plush fluid for added performance and ride quality you can go on and shred till your heart’s content.

Shock Adjustments2-Position Lever (Open, Pedal) / Low Speed Compression Adjustment in Open Mode / External Rebound / Air Spring Pressure

Superboost Rear Axle Spacing157mm of pure stiffness. With a wider hub, manufacturers can make stiffer and stronger wheels.

Internal Cable RoutingInternal routing for stealth dropper posts. Rear derailleur and brake routing is cleanly routed under the toptube and the rear derailleur cable is internally routed through the swingarm to keep things tidy.

Rubber ProtectionMolded Rubber Downtube Protector keeps rocks and debris off the plastic and quiets the ride. Integrated rubber protection for the chainstay and seat stay to keep things peaceful and quiet in the woods.

Threaded Bottom Bracket


RockShox Pike Ultimate RC2Featuring the new Charger™ 2.1 damper for unmatched trail control for every sweeping corner or loamy drop in. New ultra-low friction SKF wiper seals and Maxima Plush damping fluid all work overtime to reduce friction, silence noise, and provide lasting fork performance.
