How we chose the Chamois Hagar Geometry
Some of us have been spotted wearing tighter-fitting clothes and pedalling long distances to see nature’s delights, we also saw the huge dollar signs in gravel which could fund the development of other ridiculous projects like a beer-powered jet ski. We have made what looks like a gravel bike—but not just any old gravel bike. This gravel bike or The Hagar as we call it, has borrowed some things from its fully suspended Evil family members.
"Rather than creating a bike with the same geometry as a squirrely road bike and relaxing things to create a borderline manageable gravel bike, we started with our distinctive mountain bike geometry with shred surging through its veins and created the Chamois Hagar. It brings speed, stability, and that well renowned Evil mischief to an otherwise safe and sensible drop bar market.
Is it a gravel destroyer? It’s far more than that—whoever heard of a 66.67-degree headtube angle, 50mm stem, and a dropper post on a low-rider lightweight frame that can’t be beaten by even the most cadence-minded hammerheads? The Following of Gravel? That’s more like it—and just like that, shred came to gravel."
In an effort to be less terrified and create a fun gravel steed we drew inspiration from the Offering which uses a longer front to center and reach, shorter stem, and 430mm chain stays this supplied mountain bike stability and handling to the twitchy gravel category. We have added more trail and chainstay length for top speeds both on and off gravel, while allowing for more fun and frolicking on singletrack.
In addition to aggressive geometry clearance was added for 50c tires to keep the most ambitious of adventures on track. Super-low standover heights and dropper posts keep blood pressures in check when things point downhill. 140-160mm Flat mount or MTB discs hold down the stopping duties.
Can the Chamois Hagar be used for bikepacking
While shred pumps through the Chamois Hagar’s veins, versatility grounds the Hagar’s compelling energy. Seven water bottle mounts, stealth rack and fender mounts, 1x and 2x options, close ratio and wide-range builds, internal routing, Di2 provisions, and 100 x 12/142 x 12 spacing this is just the start of the story. There’s even rubber frame protection for when it get loose and rowdy. And while a 66.67 headtube angle may beckon berm-destroying daydreams, the Hagar begs to be ripped everywhere.
Can the Chamois Hagar run flat bars
For those riding to work, run a flat bar and bolt on a rack. For those wanting to destroy their legs, we made sure it’s at home devouring pavement on 34mm tires. Gritting your way through a weather-unknown rando? Weather-sealed frame plugs keep the Chamois Hagar weatherproof.
Our builds offer 125mm, 150mm and 180mm droppers so you still have room for a seatbag dropper while the multi water bottle boss layout allows for full or partial frame bags with hydration to spare—bikepacker’s delight.
If you’re looking to pigeon hole, the Chamois Hagar defies classification. And shamefaced as we may be about now being in the gravel market, we’re not even sure we’re in it. Maybe we’ve invaded it, a hostile takeover—alert the press, gravel’s been hijacked and the Chamois Hagar’s here to party.
Because with the Chamois Hagar, you don’t rethink riding. You board the Hagar and ride how you ride. It’s meant for that. It wants it. Enough so that you ride that way even if it wasn’t your intention, even if you’re going long chasing light, searing past bewildered dirt tourists, or making your commute not suck. It has that effect—it is what it is and it isn’t sorry about it—and that’s just what we intended.
