For this First Ride, we take a look at the Ellsworth Evolution. We headed out to some of our local testing grounds to throw a leg over and give you some initial feedback. The new Evolution Convert with Ellsworth’s ACTIVE Energy Efficient Suspension (AEES) is designed to take all the punishment you can throw at a longer travel 29er Enduro machine. Capturing the rollover benefits of a 29er coupled with 140mm front and rear travel, the Evolution gives you the confidence to take the most aggressive line at the races. Or, if you prefer a more confidence inspiring 2.8+ size tire to allow for max traction, this bike can handle both.
