The Wreckoning LS GX

Evil Wreckoning LS GX

 

THE PEDAL POWERED DH LEGEND

 

A heaped shovel of gravity fills the heart of every Evil machine, and our venerated Wreckoning maintains its dark reputation of trail-melting speed. This latest iteration of the 29” wheeled 166mm platform comes Lightly Salted with updates while maintaining the geometry and suspension kinematics that riders love and trust on the burly stuff. Whether racing the clock or punching out to hit the trail, this bike is built to send deep and spin up comfortably for another.

Why the Wreckoning?

The Wreckoning LS has nudged the limits of balance and grip, vetted by racers and weekend rippers alike. This is the bike you'll find "too fast for me" with. The platform for lapping extra gnarly descents that offers a cozy pedaling position on the next climb.  

 

Even our best machines can be improved, augmented, and better shred-prepped. What's been lightly salted? We've found a few dark elements to crank up the Wreckoning’s trail hungry appetite. Alongside a pair of limited-edition colour options, we've added SRAM's UDH derailleur hanger that's easily found at your local bike shop. If the tiny backwoods bike shop has any modern hanger in stock, it'll be this one.  

 

Trails and trees are always better than greasy garages, and our engineers aim to reduce your wrenching time. We've heard the battle cries over trunnion shock spacers and responded by capturing them in the linkage, so you no longer have to fiddle and fumble when installing shocks.      

 

To frost this soil-slashing rig, Evil will offer free annual bearing replacements on all of our bikes, from 2022 forward. Original owners can register their bikes on the Evil website and order a set of replacement bearings once per season. See our warranty site for more details to keep those pivots silky smooth.

 

In classic Evil fashion, we didn't pigeonhole the bike into a particular riding style. Despite its DH-plow appearance, the Wreckoning maintains a balanced acumen to suit gas-to-flat park rats and checkers-or-wreckers racers alike. With 166mm at the rutter and 170mm below the bars, it'll smash Strava records and rocks alike, while the 430mm chainstays keep the bike lively and lofty whenever asked. At 65.2° in Low mode, the headtube is sloped for a dialed feel on any track, with the option of 64.6° in X-Low if your trails are more fall line than not. Find yourself wanting even more? Throw a dual-crown up front and push your bounds of shred. 

 

Does it still Climb?

Evil engineer, Dave Weagle, conceived the Wreckoning by borrowing the pedal-friendly pop of the Following and Offering, and dialing it in with a legacy downhill heritage like only he can. To achieve a complementary climbing ability for this leg-powered DH bike, the leverage curve is optimized, starting with the high-end leverage to maintain that supple, efficient pedaling feel we all love so much. As the leverage decreases slowly through the mid stroke it provides a mountain of support to push against while the end stroke sees the lowest leverage, offering maximum support to pull through and pop back. 

Soft and plush is all good, but anyone who's been neck deep in a rowdy, rock-strewn chute knows the value of stiffness in the right places. To increase rigidity the Wreckoning utilizes a 157mm Super Boost rear end. Add in the unified rear triangle and wider main pivot to ensure a firm AF frame when the going gets sideways. 

 

The remaining details include all the dark matter that lives in each of our creations: full internal cable routing, an integrated chain guide, and rubber sound-cancelling chain stay protectors.
