Full Suspension.
Full-on Racer.

Professional riders obsess about equipment, which is exactly why we take their input so seriously. We based this bike around what pro mountain bikers consider as one of their greatest dilemmas: “Hardtail or full-sus for race day?” We want their answer to be the Evil Twin, nine times out of ten. We designed it to ride just like the Detritovore hardtail, just with the control and traction that 90mm of travel offers. When designing the kinematics, we wanted the shock rate to ensure pedalling responsiveness, plushness in mid-stroke and progressive near the bottom of the travel. It’s a true competition bike.

"Absolute accuracy, efficiency and confidence when cornering hard, bombing a descent or flat-out sprinting."

Frame
Design

We set the frame weight goal at under 2000g, but wanted to be sure of unparalleled lateral stiffness. So we use the finest materials – Mitsubishi-Rayon and Toray high-modulus carbon fibre – and specified the best bearings available.

Another non-negotiable demand from the pros was for the suspension linkage to leave room to mount two bottles in the main triangle. This is critical for long marathons and stage racing, where hydration is key.
