The new Clockwork EVO 29 pushes the 29er hardtail into the hardcore arena. Running a 120mm travel fork, this one's for the fast and loose big wheel fans out there. Bigger brother to the EVO, the Clockwork EVO 29 is a degree slacker in its head angle to tune the geometry for a more aggressive and capable longer travel fork. The EVO 29 shares the same tidy frame features as the 27.5: neat external routing that tucks the cables cleanly under the top tube and internal stealth cable routing for a dropper post are both nice touches. The sturdy 12x148mm Boost bolt-though rear axle adds strength and rigidity for the 29er wheelset. Trail centre hardtail, or out and out explorer, it’s up to you. But however you choose to ride the Clockwork EVO 29, it will be a more than worthy trail buddy.
