There are few topics that spur as much debate within the bike world as the ever-growing presence of e-bikes.

Like many of you, we’ve wrestled with these same issues, and have found that the better we understand something the smarter we can be about deciding where we stand.

Now, Evil introduces us to an all-new version. Can it redefine the category once again? Check out the details below from Evil's Following V4 press release.
