They had to call it something. My guess is that it's the same principal as FSR with near vertical rear wheel travel and zero "jack" of any kind. Spesh wasn't going to give up the patent for free so Trek came up with their own idea and it looks impressive. Innovate of die eh? :)

I think he's talking about the new specialized EVO line of bikes. They are a more aggressive builds of current models. Like the new stumpjumper EVO, it has 150mm of travel front and back, set up with a dual ring, and has a command post, and probably more.

I see EVO as catering to what bike nuts do to their bikes to tune them to their nitch style of riding (re; the members of these boards :))

I and many others have added coils to Enduro for AM/FR duties and/or added longer forks.

And others have crazy weight tuned XC bikes for racing.

EVO seems to be taking a segment and pushing it's extreme.

Agreed. Usually, when a big company tries to do this, it comes of gimmicky. That doesn't seem to be the case here.

It seems to me there are going to be good in between models. Now that the stumpy is 140 in standard trim, the evo model gives us something before a full on enduro, and the evo enduro is a step right before an sx.

I think it's a great idea and I might try out an evo stumpy as a replacment for my 09 enduro sl.
