Cascade Components make some of the world’s best trail and enduro bikes ride even better. The Washington state company produces aftermarket rocker links that improve rear suspension performance.

Cascade Components have successfully engineered links for Kona, Santa Cruz, Specialized, Trek, Transition and Yeti. And that product portfolio has now grown to include boutique brand, Evil.

By applying meticulous analysis and modeling, Cascade Components engineer links which deliver a touch more travel and a superior riding feel.

The Evil Offering linkage is Cascade Components latest upgrade project and if you want to make your 140mm Evil The Offering 29er even more capable, this is a great fit-and-forget upgrade.

More travel and better terrain taming 

With the Cascade Components link fitted, your Evil The Offering will increase its rear-wheel travel from 140- to 145mm. However, the custom link's benefits come from the new kinematics created by altering the shock position.

Cascade Components have carefully shaped their Evil the Offering link to optimize further optimize the leverage ratio of the suspension system. Progression increases from 23% to 35%, which means you get better bottom-out resistance on those large terrain hits, without ruining the bike’s small-bump compliance or low-speed cornering traction.

The link will work with both air and coil shocks, however, those seeking to use a coil shock to achieve the ultimate small bump sensitivity will see the most benefit from the added progression as coil shocks by design have a very linear spring rate.

Machined from 6061-T6 series aluminum and fitted with sealed Enduro MAX bearings, the Cascade Components Evil the Offering Link, is a thoughtfully engineering product. There is no compromise with the frame tolerance or any issues of a back tire possibly scrubbing the seat tube.

Available in black, silver and orange, the Evil Offering Link retails for $249.
