Anyone ridden both and have an opinion? I ride 50% Bike Park (Mt. Bachelor), 25% shuttled rocky enduro style trails, and 25% self powered laps. Like jumping and playfulness and would be replacing a Evil Insurgent OG which I love.

Seems like Evil's are having an issue with the v3's cracking but hopefully they get that ironed out.

Thanks

I've owned the Sentinel v1 (with cascade link and extra travel) and the Wreckoning v2

The Wreckoning has a better magic-like rear suspension, it can smash and plow but still feels poppy and jumps quite well. I found the build quality to be lacking, and the customer service was pretty slow in my experience.

The Sentinel rear end took more time to setup but I found it more adjustable, the customer service is loads better, and I found the build quality and ease of maintenance (bearings) much easier. I found the Transition to be more stable at speed, not as supple rear suspension, and not quite as quick in the turns. but it felt quicker on the downhill and I found it climbed a little better.

Both are great bikes, I think you'll be pretty happy with either one based on how your planning to ride em. I think the evil is the more playful pick, but the transition is great in rough stuff and I loved it in the Whistler bike park.
