About the Build

#LONGLIVECHAINSAW This one was built up as a tribute to one of the greatest downhill racers of all time. You’re never too old to have a hero and this rider was a huge influence for our co-owner Derek. The frame protection company Dyedbro released a special Steve Smith tribute kit to honor the Canadian Chainsaw massacre earlier this year. The choice to use the following was not only because it’s one of the most bad ass bikes on the planet, but also due to the fact that Evil was Smith’s first major sponsors.
An assortment of red bits from Industry Nine and SRAM keep the theme going. The new i9 Enduro 315c wheels soak up trail chatter better than ever thanks to the new rim design manufactured by We Are One composites out of Canada. We just can’t express how much we love this bike, it absolutely flies on the up and downs. The following wants to go as fast as possible and pop off everything in it’s path. You’ll find yourself sneaking in pedals on the trail every chance you get just like chainsaw himself as he headed for the finish line in hopes of standing on the top step of the podium!
