Evil Offering Description
A carbon 29er trail bike designed for versatility and fun, the Evil Offering has the latest all-mountain geometry, 140mm of travel and Evil’s proprietary Dave Weagle-designed Delta System Suspension. Evil calls the Offering 29er a “tweener” mountain bike. With 140mm travel in the front and rear it fits between the 120mm Following and 160mm Wreckoning. If you’ve been dreaming of a playful, poppy 29er for epic all-mountain rides, the Evil Following is the bike you’ve been waiting for.
You can infer a lot about a bike by looking at where it comes from. Evil is headquartered in Bellingham, Washington, way up in the Pacific Northwest. Halfway between Seattle and Vancouver, BC, Bellingham’s Galbraith Mountain has big climbs, steep descents and sculpted flow trails with plenty of tech thrown in to keep you on your toes. The Offering was designed to handle anything short of pure enduro or lift-served DH. Here in Hurricane, the Offering is equally at home on big rides like JEM to Hurricane Rim or rolling tech lines at Guacamole and Little Creek.
With 140mm of travel, the Offering is right smack in the middle of the Following and Wreckoning. Evil’s designers also made some important geometry tweaks that give the Offering its own, unique, trail-friendly character. In their own marketing words, it offers all the “popertunities and corner shredability that Evil bikes are known for with an increase in stability and climbing ability.” The Offering splits the difference between its 29er siblings with great all-mountain handling and enough suspension to let you get a little reckless on the mesas.
The most notable geometry change is a considerably steeper seat tube angle. At 77°, it’s about 2.5° steeper than Evil’s other 29ers, making the Offering a more comfortable climber – especially when the bike is in the low/slack geometry position. Like other Evil mountain bikes, it has adjustable geometry with normal (Low) or lower, slacker (X-Low) positions that can be switched with a flip chip in the rear linkage. If just changing the geometry isn’t enough, Evil also designed the Offering to work with longer forks. So if you want an even slacker more aggressive bike, you can swap out the standard 140mm fork for a 150mm or even 160mm fork and send it on Grafton Mesa.
Dave Weagel’s Delta System Suspension is a big part of why people love Evil mountain bikes. The Delta System is a linked single-pivot suspension that combines the efficient power delivery of a single-pivot linkage with the plushness of a multi-link system. It feels firm under pedal power – even when standing. However, it lacks the harshness most single-pivot designs have when pedaling. You can hammer the Offering up steppy slickrock ledges without worrying about losing traction and it stays glued to the trail in the corners. On descents, it smooths out the chunder and soaks up big hits without ever feeling wallowy.
Combine 140mm of Delta System Suspension with smooth-rolling 29er wheels and you’ve got a bike that dominates almost everywhere. It’s an excellent choice for Hurricane’s slickrock mesas where you have to be ready for quick standing climbs, cobbled pedal sections and surprise, chunky descents. Bike Magazine did their 2019 Bible of Bike Tests right here in Hurricane and the Offering ended up being one of their favorite 29ers of the test. We’re not surprised. But don’t take our word for it.
