Evil Wreckoning Review – 2017 Bible of Bike Tests


Provided your trails are mean and fast, the Evil Wreckoning may be the most capable bike you’ve ever ridden.

this video is so B.S. I stopped watching it once it ended and bought a large wreckoning from the local shop wrench science. #BleedBlackDieEvil

The hipster is strong with these. The ever present coffee cups is so cringe.
Sebastian Ramos-Roux
+Bike Magazine can you please include some canyon bikes in next years test (spectral or strive)
DADventureTV
That poor Bronson. It deserves so much more.
doopy noo

Ian Docena
Yah!!!

Why is everyone here crying because of the Price ? Look at Yeti's for example... Nobody said you need to have this Bike. There are people who have the Money, or save all their Money just for this bike. Nobody says that you need a Lamborghini or Porsche either.

Evil makes the sickest looking bikes that ride superbly!
Soul Rebel

Michael Lazzell

ThatGuyThatDoesStuff
Silly shaky cam stuff. Hold the goddamn camera still you film school nerd.
Roby Goncalves
Prices of MTB are ridiculous, they need to be reeled in
fundip2010

tansingth gordon
Nice bike but I can’t afford a 6000 bike but I’m trying to get into mountain bikes hopefully I find one
rekamniar
I hope this bike is indestructible.
John Royal
Love the Slayer-themed Bike Mag shirt! No Evil for me, I still don't trust their durability/warranty enough to drop 3G's on a frame.

No Vernon, no watch.
i2ambler2002
its interesting because you can purchase a /motorcycle/ for less than this bike costs. Its really amazing how much bike prices have risen over the years.
Jared Gulaga
These videos are so boring but I need the info please discuss the bike while riding it and give us GoPro footage
Thelma Viaduct
looks terrible, I'm oot
Raj Kandhari
Can you guys at least test something affordable like the new commencal meta 4v.2 or a something like that? Videos like these only benefit super rich people or top tier pro riders
rockclimber1980
This bike compared to the yeti sb5.5c, which overall would you think could be the best all in 1 bike, uphill and downhill or is it apples to apples at this point.
MTBdropIN
HOW TALL IS THE GUY IN THE SLAYER SHIRT, AND DID HE RIDE THE SAME BIKE THAT THE OTHER TWO RODE IN THIS VIDEO. IM 5'6 IM WONDERING IF I CAN GET AWAY WITH A MEDIUM ON THIS BIKE?
Mike Peacock
It has a very slack seat angle. Virtual seat angle is only relevant at a certian seatpost extension. you got long legs like me, you'll be hanging over the rear axel.
mark caruana
i wish they had reviews of bikes under $4000.. something i child actually afford while still being able to feed my family....lol
mjs1231
i was done watching at 6900.00 bucks. nope im out.
Hugh Daniel Mayer
Hay I have a question I'm 6.6 feet in hieght will this bike be a great size for me?
Sam Long
how does it compare the the insurgent???
Michael Clark
I like the new format of the reviews, no introduction, just getting right to it.
Kent von Severin
Will we ever hear these guys say a bike is shit. "It really surprized me" is used to describe every bike.
Adam Brown
There are amazing bikes that cost half as much. Then you can buy that bike used for another 50% off. Mtbiking is an expensive sport and not for everyone, but there are still great bikes to be had for under $2000. Just because you can't afford this bike doesn't mean you should complain that there are other people that can buy it. Save up and buy it used in 16 months when that guy decides he needs the latest bike again.
Steve
Don't forget Marc Ariss, top mtbs can cost $10,000, and top dirt bikes (motor) can cost $100,000. You don't compare a $500 mtb to a $5,000 one, just like you don't compare a $5,000 dirt bike to a $50,000 one.
Conor
poor people need to shut up
Nathan Libot
Have you guys rode the LB version? Would you say the similarities are the same still a beast of a bike?
Maverick224
Man the hate is so Evil, pse u muppets dont buy this bike, cause I want it and I dont want you fools riding this awesome machine, go play candy crush, I want a Wreckoning! Hell yeah well done guys and Evil...
Braxton A.
Need to invest in a tripod guys real shaky
N English
7k for a bike. Clearly not meant for anyone who doesn't have sponsorship or financial responsibilities. Millennials rejoice.
Jonathan Vasquez
can u pls review Orbea Occam AM 27.5? ty
Scott Gibson
I wish there was a way they could do test with no graphics on the bikes, so that they did not know what they were testing. That would be very interesting.
GEORGIOS PAPASOTIRIOU
haha, 3000bucks, for a frame that contains 200 buks in raw material, that a bargain, i ghess al these '''testers'' have to get payed for they unbiased reviews
Abstraddic
Damn.... No Vernon what had happened....?
schlooonginator
I have to agree with many of the comments here. Bikes have gone crazy expensive. I understand that companies are shipping their best products to test but they are all around $6000USD. That is simply crazy. Like another commenter, it doesn't seem that long ago $2000 to $3000 would get you a very high end bike. Frankly, this made a big influence on what I chose when I bought my bike several years back, I chose a ti 29er from Bikesdirect, no full suspension. I wanted something higher end and being a rider from the 90s have not ridden FS and like hardtails for their capability in so many conditions. I would love one of these bikes but at these prices I could be looking at new Yamaha motorbikes. Carbon has become a huge way to make money. I think there is a reason why brand name carbon wheels cost a couple grand meanwhile noname Chinese cost a tenth of that and still get good reviews. The thing is that almost all carbon frames are made cheaply in China.

So they made a Specialized Enduro.... Good for you guys. Enduro 29 already set the bar. Sounds like a good bike, just not anything that hasn't been done BETTER before.
Hamish Gibson
I would love this bike or the spesh enduro but 27.5
