Evil Following XT Complete Mountain Bike 2021
Evil Following XT Complete Mountain Bike 2021
Imagine a wild-eyed guru preaching the timeless benefits of galactic-wide speed, offering unconscious velocity through the use of one simple tool. That hypothetical leader, that imaginary prophet, they'd be talking about the Evil Following XT Complete Mountain Bike. An XC rocketship with the soul of a DH sled and the chops of a dialed dirt jumper, the Following is actually not too extreme, geo-wise. It's not super long, super slack, or super squishy. What it is is a surprisingly agile, capable, and fast trail bike that positively rips everywhere.
120mm UD Carbon Frame
DELTA System Suspension – The 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. The dual progressive leverage rate curve was developed for coil sprung downhill applications to take advantage of the speed sensitive shocks on the market. Mechanically, the system uses very compact links that can achieve a lot of angle and velocity change through the travel. Evil can tailor the leverage rate curve to really take advantage of the shock's valving and the way that a speed sensitive damper is designed to work. 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.
RockShox Deluxe Ultimate RCT Rear Shock – A 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 Adjustments – Air Spring Pressure, Low Speed Compression Adjustment, Rebound Adjustment

Rally Car Wheelbase – Stability, driftability, rowdy behavior, and predictability: this bike responds!
Fully Internal Routing – Tubes within tubes bring setup bliss and tidy looks.
Pedal Forward Positioning – A steep seat tube angle puts you over the pedals, powerfully cranking uphill.
Direct Injection Chainguide – As light as it gets, this is removable for those who want to go even lighter.

Sound Mounds – Rubber sound-cancelling chainstay mounds keep you bounding in peace.
Threaded Bottom Bracket
RockShox Pike Ultimate – Featuring an updated DebonAir™ air spring paired with the Charger™ 2.1 damper for unmatched trail control for every sweeping corner or loamy drop in.

Industry Nine Trail S Hydra – Hydra-powered, warp speed engagement courtesy of I9's Asheville, North Carolina made hubset, aggressive tire friendly 27mm wide tubeless ready rims, and 28 straight-pull spokes… You’d think we were referring to the latest ‘money is no object’ wonder wheelset. Nope - all that is found on the Trail S. You’ll be impressed by the amount of detail, features and ride quality, all at a price that’ll leave plenty in the bike budget.
Maxxis Minion DHF Tires – With a tread design that deftly balances rolling speed with braking and cornering traction, it's hard to find fault with the Minion DHF. That's probably why it's one of the most imitated tires in mountain biking.
OneUp Dropper Post – OneUp's been obsessed with shaving every last millimetre from the latest OneUp post to give you the the shortest stack height and shortest total length of any dropper post. No other post can get your saddle lower.
