The Two Wheeled Death Machine Lives
Like the old Insurgent just a little Better'er
Fresh from the science lab the updated Insurgent LB has broken out of its test tube and is back with a vengeance. The Insurgent was the 27.5" wheeled bike Evil didnt even want to make. But as it turns out, the Insurgent has proven itself to be a hell raiser, ready to separate your tires from your rims in every corner. The short snappy chainstays, low bottom bracket and long top tube make shredding just a little bit betterer. Without trying to re-invent the wheel, Evil added boost rear axle spacing, and two fresh new colors; Freddy Mercury and Yogurt Truck. They also managed to shave almost a half-pound off the overall frame weight while improving ride quality. You just know its just gunna be lighter, fastest and gnarlier than ever before. Most importantly, they added water bottle cage mounts because it turns out that people like to drink water while they ride their bikes.
The balance of fun, pop and crushing rock gardens
The original Insurgent was born in a time of turmoil, 26 was dying, 27.5 and 29 were the flavour of the day and nobody could decide which one they liked better. Evil tuned out the noise, busted out of the trends and made a bike that’s fun and had us slashing corners, ripping single track and hitting jump lines. It didn’t disappoint us then, and now it’s just a little bit better’er.
The Insurgent LB is ready to suit your shredding needs. If your favorite past-time is racking up king-of-the-mountain ascents and padding your strava stats then you can choose between a RockShox Monarch Plus or the Fox DPX2 rear shock to convert all your power into momentum with mind bending traction and a dependable feeling of plushness. If you prefer sending-it-to-flat, upgrade to the Push ElevenSix, which turns the bike into a square-edge-hit, traction generating, and bottomless feeling two wheeled death machine
If you're into pedalling all day, try a 150mm fork and set the flip chips to the LOW position and enjoy a 74.8° seat angle while the 66.1° head angle keeps the descents in control and the party level high. But if you're into enduro bro, or even better, slashing berms at bike parks, try a 160mm or 170mm fork with the flip chips in the XLOW position and experience a slack and low slung corner destroying play bike that likes to jump and square off corners.
