The Insurgent LS is available as a mixed-wheel MX or full 27.5" platform. Small wheels with a 180mm fork for mind-melting laps, or MX with a 170mm fork for added stability, steeper lines, and plowing downstream. 27.5” never died. It just quit caring what people think.
The Insurgent LS is the most shape-shifty Evil to date, and no matter the configuration, it’s built for the long send. Sure, you can comfortably pedal it uphill, but gravity is the bullseye that this machine nails every time. With all the best bits of our Wreckoning platform, and a little something extra, the Insurgent will mop up your mistakes and crack open possibilities.
Even our best bikes can be improved and better shred-prepped. We’ve found a few dark elements to crank up the Insurgent’s DH appetite. Alongside the fresh paint job, we’ve added SRAM’s Universal 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.
Riding is always 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.
In addition to our longest travel and slackest head tube, the Insurgent LS’ 27.5” rear tire provides more tread-to-butt clearance for a lower gravity-stance than any of our other bikes. In addition to shaving grams, the smaller rear wheel gives the bike a touch more agility than our Wreckoning bruiser. Both builds eat trail all day, whether in the park or on rough race tracks, but the Insurgent leans a tad harder toward a daylong park party.
As with all of our models, the Insurgent LS uses Super Boost rear axle spacing and a wide main pivot to render that rear end stiff and flickable. When it’s time to hold a line or land an “uh-oh” these stiff triangles have your back.
