Why you'll love it

You'll love the Insurgent v2 because you'll be able to ride even harder and more confidently on the gnarliest lines out there.

It's still crazy nimble for next level maneuverability, but with more travel and a geometry that's been tweaked for better downhill control, you'll feel like there's no trail you can't own and no jump you'll want to miss.

What's new on the 2022 Insurgent v2?

The 2022 Evil Insurgent v2 has undergone some major tweaks in order to create an even more fun and capable ride. Check out a few of the big highlights below.

The 2022 Evil Insurgent v2 comes in a mixed wheel set up or 27.5

MX (29/27.5) or full 27.5"

Choose your weapon. 

If you want maximum maneuverability or your spend your days in the park hitting big jump lines, the 27.5 model is the move. 

If you're more inclined to ride big declines, the mixed wheel model will give you the enduro capabilities of a 29er without giving up the same berm slashing agility. 

More rear travel

The rear travel has been increased from 150mm up to 168mm for even more bottomless suspension and bigger sends.

Better pedaling efficiency

The seat tube has been steepened quite a bit (76.9° for MX and 78° for 27.5") in order to make climbs easier so you can efficiently earn your turns.

More downhill stability

The longer reach and wheelbase will help keep you more centered and confident on those chunky steeps where maximum control is an absolute necessity.
