Evil Sovereign frame

Our review

High cost and weight, but the Sov still rules on technical trails

It may be unconventional, but Evil’s Sovereign frame is a stunning ride that’s now cheaper than it’s ever been.

Tange tubing saves money over the previous Reynolds 853 steel, but it rides just as well. Same-diameter tubes form the top tube, brace tubes, down tube and wishbone rear stay stubs.

A machined plate chainstay section gives big tyre and chainring clearance without excess bending. Sliding HVS dropouts with adjuster screws for security allow for singlespeed or altered geometry options and there are ISCG tabs too.

Eight different coloured decal packs complete the custom finish. It’s not light (2,790g/6.15lb) and it’s premium priced, but every time we ride a Sovereign, its insolent responsiveness and unruly low-slung, high-strength confidence blows us away.
