Our newest version of the worlds first long travel carbon hardtail. Taking our experience for long travel forked frames, adding our new revised geometry previously featured on the Evo steel frames, and manufacturing it with all the techniques we've learnt over the years makes this our best long travel hardtail ever. The frame will work with forks for 4, 5 or 6in of fork travel.

All frame size recommendations are approximate. A good fit will also depend on the correct choice of stem length, correct bike set-up for the rider and riding style.
Correct frame size choice can also depend on a rider’s torso and limb length.
Early review of my 16" Evo after first few rides.At 5.8 and a bit with a 160cm arm span I was not too sure about buying the smaller frame (compared to ones I've had before).I'm pleased to report that frame does not feel small at all, and as per the limited forums posts on this frame I seemed to have no problem catching up with the full sus guys, the frame seems to eat up the bumps and did not feel to twitchy at the back end for me.This was my first few runs out at a trail center with it running a 100mm reba dual air (soon to be converted to 135mm) and it really feels like a nice frame, very easy to put it where you want it even on the ragged edge.The only thing I will note if my swapover SLX front mech has a low down tube mount on it, so I cannot get to big ring due to me being a half inch off getting the front mech lower - Ideally you need a mech with a top/high mount bracket.Anyways hope this is enough info for the moment - Will report back in a few months! :)-Stu
Nice frame, I enjoy riding it. Could you please tell me if 27.5 will fit in this frame? Do you have 27.5 frames?
