Evil Following X01 AXS

 

MORE POP, LESS FILLING
 
It’s time for everyone’s favorite 121mm trail-weapon 29er to get the Lightly Salted treatment.

This is the Following you know and love, with a few licks of fresh paint and some future-proofing updates. Downcountry, slackcountry, allcountry: wherever you go and whatever you call it the Following LS will continually laugh at whatever you throw at it.

Why Following?

WIN UP. WIN DOWN. FOLLOW NO ONE.

This bike kicked off the shred-trail 29er movement, and we haven’t hit the mute button on loud, fast, and fun times. We need to let the volume roar and this bike needs to claw after every extra-credit popportunity. Oh, and it drifts uphill too.

 

The Following LS updates include a pair of limited-edition colorways and SRAM’s Universal Derailleur Hanger (UDH). The idea behind the UDH is that no matter where you are in the world you can find the right replacement hanger for your bike.

 

Riding is far better than wrenching, and our engineers aim to reduce your garage 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.

 

While updating the Following LS, we’ve maintained what makes it so special: lightning handling, shameless pop, and that uncanny ability to be there before you’ve decided to go there. We ratcheted that die-hard XC determination with an over-the-pedals 77° seat tube angle. It’ll climb, and climb, and climb. Then, just like the Following we love, it’s first to the beer cooler at the bottom. Always.

 

It sits in full on seek-and-destroy, overly fit pedaller territory, but this is still the Following LS we’re talking about. We made sure it’s every bit the hidden line slasher and defier of categorization that it’s been from the start. The queen of pop more so than ever with an inline rear shock and just like the original Following, it can’t be compared to anything.
