Why We Like The Wreckoning Mountain Bike Frame

Evil's third iteration of the Wreckoning builds on the esteemed planted-yet-playful ride feel that the Wreckoning is known for, but makes it more nimble and lively for versatility. The descending characteristics see further improvement as well—increased rear travel and a slacker front end make this rig feel right at home when the going gets rowdy. Evil sticks with its signature short chainstays for maximum playfulness of jumps and an instant pull into a wheelie. Paired with a 170mm travel fork, the Wreckoning’s headtube sits at 64.6 or 63.9 degrees, depending on what setting you have the linkage's flip-chip in.


The Wreckoning now features 166mm of rear travel, governed by Dave's Extra Legitimate Travel Apparatus (DELTA), which Evil designed in collaboration with Dave Weagle. Evil stuck to what it's calling a linkage-driven single pivot in order to achieve a level of adjustability not allowed by DW-link's four-bar design. Evil now specs the Wreckoning with Rockshox Super Deluxe Coil Ultimate shock, for a more consistent feel on descents and better ride quality for aggressive riding.


Once the shock tune is set, DELTA strikes an apparently contradictory balance between a supple, light-off-the-top early stroke and a mid-stroke that keeps the tires glued to the trail. As it approaches the deep end of its six-plus inches, the travel arc ramps up to maintain a bottomless feel that belies Evil's gravity roots and informs the bike's fearless approach to trail features. It takes a lot to find DELTA's limits, and that's fortunate since The Wreckoning is a 166mm travel bike “that feels like a 200mm.”
