For those of you looking for a headset we finally got some King Headsets which can be found --> HERE <-- If you snag one with the Lite and would like for us to throw it on for you, let us know in the Notes section of your order.
The Evasion Lite is just that, a stripped back version of the original Evasion. Ideal if you're looking for a bike with the geometry and tire clearances of the Evasion, but don't need all of the rack mounts and what not, for the heavy duty off-road touring it's designed to do. The Evasion Lite features the Crust Carbon Fork in another effort to keep the weight down.
Pair one of these up with a tire like the 27.5x2.8" Schwalbe G-One All Around for maximum speed to volume ratio as proven by science.
Max tire sizes:
700c x 55. This is with a Rene Herse Antelope Hill on the rear and a Fleecer Ridge on the front. Both mounted to Velocity SS blunts. This combo raises the BB height around 5mm then is listed on the chart, putting it at 295mm.
27.5 X 2.8. This is with Scwalbe G-Ones. Rear tire was mounted to a Stans Sentry rim and the front an Enve G27. This combo also put the BB at 295mm in height. Please note more aggressive 2.8s would potentially not fit.
26 x 3.0 fits in the front and 26 x 2.8 is the max for the rear. This combo put the BB at 285mm
73mm BB shell so it takes a MOUNTAIN crank. Ideally 1x with a maximum ~40 tooth chainring. You can set it up 2x, for all double set up configurations please contact Zach at bike insights. Rear end spacing is NOT BOOST it will take a regular non-boost ring.
Fork is a non-tapered steerer 1 1/8" Crust Carbon Fork with internal dynamo and brake cable routing.
Fixed 142mm X 12mm rear dropouts. No rocker dropouts on this one, in efforts to shave weight.
Front and rear thru axles are included.
The steel plate on the drive side has been axed, you guessed it, save weight.
Max Stack Under Stem= 40mm and you will need at least 5mm over top of the stem for the compression plug
Integrated headset cups. Takes a Chris King Dropset 4 or any BMX integrated headset. Upper and lower bearing dimensions are 42mm with a 45 degree taper. Check out Empire BMX for BMX headsets.
Flat mount front and rear. If you need a brake kit we've got Palm Oils for the Evasion Lite.
Max Rotor Size: 180mm Front | 160mm Rear
All sizes up to the Large have 28.6 D.T and TT, the Large and Xtra-Large have a 28.6 TT and a 31.8 DT. All sizes are heat treated CR-MO
