This Offering Sacrifices Nothing
The Dark Lord of Singletrack isn’t a moniker EVIL plastered on just any ol' bike. The Offering LS earned it. Like a versatile Swiss Army Knife, this 141mm 29” trail platform has proven itself more capable than any jumble of geo numbers can describe. Its capabilities bridge conventional genres to bang on a broader drum. Paired with a 150mm fork, the Offering is set to cover all trail types over the whole damn mountain.
CLIMB. DESCEND. SMILE. REPEAT.
A proper pocketknife covers all the slicing tasks you imagine and the unexpected ones in between. The Offering platform aims to do the same. It's stiff and responsive, pairing the smooth pedaling platform of past Followings with added padding so you can release the brakes and let gravity take over.
So, what’s been lightly salted here? EVIL found a few dark elements to crank up the Offering’s all-mountain appetite. Alongside a pair of limited-edition color options, they’ve added SRAM’s Universal Derailleur Hanger (UDH) that’s easily found at your local bike shop. If the tiny backwoods shop has any modern hanger in stock, it’ll be this one.
EVIL 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. Slide the shock in place, torque all three bolts, and get back to drifting.
To polish this shiny knife, EVIL will offer free annual bearing replacements on all of their 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 EVIL's warranty site for more details to keep those pivots prime.
The tail of this 141mm bike will ramp up fast for a lively position on the “spry-ride to bulldozer” continuum. You can certainly line up at a local enduro with the Offering, and it's shaped to leap ruts and boost over roots beneath creative riders who prefer the bonus line to the shortest one.
A flip-chip and optional angle sets offer six posture options for the Offering LS. These variables allow riders to dial their Offering in sync with their trails and riding style. Keep it set low for flatter local tracks, with a quick flip of the chips to achieve that X-Low bike park stance.
If you aim to maintain a tight quiver, the Offering LS is your ride. Redline the pedals to keep pace with the lycra squad or stack it on the lift for a proper park day. Slotted between the shredcountry Following and stone-splitting Wreckoning LS, the Offering clearly fits below the banner of all-mountain machine. This middle child will impress the neighbors while feeding them waves of dirt.
