It's all been about the Revolt recently with Evil bikes, but they've also got a sweet new hardtail coming out soon. Todd Seplavy has just been on the blower telling me about the new all mountain Evil Sovereign.

This is what he told me:

" Here's a sneak peak of a frame being welded. This is a size small Sovereign proto, Gabe size."

Saladini leads. World Cup 4X, Maribor, Slovenia

"The Sovereign is designed for all mountain riding With 130-150mm travel forks. Some changes on the new Sovereign include

ISCG05 mount, a couple geometry tweaks, and two additional sizes. Overall though the Sovereign is in the same vein as the original version; nimble, flickable, and versatile in all sorts of woods situations.

This particular proto came in at 2554g."
