The ARC8 Evolve FS is a mountain bike all rounder that combines an XC lightweight structure with trail performance. The elaborate slider suspension generates a whopping 110 mm rear travel but at the same time ensures a stiff and nimble XC race feel. Despite its lively character, the Evolve doesn’t buck like a wild horse when riding downhill, with the progressive geometry ensuring good composure and tons of fun – all of this at a record-breaking weight of 1,240 g for the frame! The engineers achieved this with the help of computer aided design with Finite Element Analysis, which allowed them to test over 50 different carbon lay-ups to find the ideal configuration. No other bike currently available on the market offers such a good compromise between weight and trail performance. With the Evolve FS, ARC8 have created a super light, efficient overall package that still delivers on the trails.
