"As Stiff as Ron Jeremy"
(Evils words.... not mine)
Road trippin’, turn slashin’, side-hit-jibbin’, nose-bonkin’, sprint-climbin’ attitude, that’s the Calling. It’s anti-serious technology guarantees good times 69% of the time (the other 31% you’re climbing). With 130mm Delta delivered travel through our finest formed carbon tubing, 27.5" wheels, and trunnion-mounted-super-deluxe-rear-shock, your only decision is which colour. Push the button.
Have you ever wanted a bike that wasn’t like a bike at all? More like your favourite snowboard, or your funnest surfboard, the one that catches all the waves or trashes [pillow] lines faster than Kate Moss in the '90s. The Calling is your answer. This bike-shaped-skateboard has enough travel to keep you honest, while encouraging you to irresponsibly hit every extra-credit line on the trail.
At this juncture most bike companies would drive in some high-scoring-scrabble words like optimized, nimble or anti-squat technology. But we won’t insult you with that nonsense. The Calling has all the bits and bobs you have come to expect from Evil, and water bottle mounts.
The Calling is the Following's delinquent little brother that left on a road trip and never returned, that pedaled into the night in search of more, then woke for the sunrise mission to the summit.
The Calling is the trails, it’s the road trips, it’s the little side hits on the way, it’s the all-day pedal-fests, the backyard pallet sessions, the pre-work rip, the “I’ll get it this time”, the stories told later in the bar with your best mates, it’s 130mm travel, it’s Super Deluxe, it’s 27.5 or 26+, it’s boost and it’s as stiff as Ron Jeremy.
Evils "THe Following" has the potential to be two very different, but equally awesome trail bikes.
Build it one way for a 26lbs XC ripper, swap a few items and it becomes a All Mountain and Gravity fun trail monster.
Check out the video below to see how it was built into a tough 26lbs XC bike, and how it will morphe into its alternate persona!
