Let go of the brakes and you don’t feel like a bushel of bowling balls just hit you in the back. You feel—nothing. Because the faster you go, the smoother it gets.
WTF! That’s right! You heard it correctly. Some of us here have been known to wear tighter-fitting clothes and pedal long distances to visit nature’s delights, we also saw the huge dollar signs in gravel which could fund the development of other ridiculous projects like a beer-powered jet ski. We have made what appears to be, in fact, a gravel bike—but not just any gravel bike. This gravel bike or The Hagar as we call it, has borrowed some things from its fully suspended Evil family members.
In an effort to be less terrified and have more fun we drew inspiration from the Offering which uses a longer front to center and reach, shorter stem, and 430mm chain stays to supply mountain bike stability and handling to the twitchy gravel category. We have added more trail and chainstay length for higher speeds both on and off gravel, while allowing for more party on singletrack.
In addition to aggressive geometry we added clearance for 50c tires for the most ambitious adventures. Super-low standover heights and dropper posts keep blood pressures in check when things point downward.
