During the Monday lull at Crankworx we had a chance to meet up with Mason Mashon and check out his Evil Undead. The carbon reincarnation of Evil’s downhill bike is currently still a prototype, but expect to see production soon enough.

The allure of a carbon bike is definitely performance based, but the looks don’t hurt.

The redesigned 7075 double shear Delta linkage with Enduro Spherical bearings, as designed by DW.

The frame has several integrated guards, one of which goes on the downtube to prevent shuttle scars. Awesome idea!

Integrated fork bumpers are becoming a standard feature.

Is it the ultimate Whistler Bike Park bike?

The logos on the Undead are another interesting feature…

2012 artwork for the Undead. Expect big things.
