French brand Inspyre have been quietly producing bikes for the past few years and have established themselves as a respected manufacturer of complete race bikes. The 2022 Inspyre EVO-C Expert XL Disc Brake Bike comes equipped with all the components that you need to take this bike from the shop to the track, and on to the podium. Out of the box, the Inspyre features a 6061-T61 hydroformed triple-butted tubed aluminium frame, with additional highlights including a set of Forward Joyride cranks and Forward Joyride hubs, with the rear hub having 150 engagement points with 6 pawls, housed in an aluminium body and using 100% ring bearings. A 22.2mm BOX Echelon seat/post combo is another high level component utilised on this build, along with a full hydraulic disc brake system that uses a Shimano lever and Forward calliper. Upfront, a chromoly Inspyre Evo fork has tapered legs that helps keep the weight down by reducing the amount of material on the fork.
This is the first bike in the range with "normal" 20 inch wheels with the Vee Rubber Speedster 20 x 1.40 tyres wrapped around double-walled alloy rims, giving the pilot the confidence to send the big sets out there on the track. It's the perfect Cinderella bike for the growing rider that needs a rig to take the bigger hits out there, without going to a "Pro" sized frame. Everything is slightly scaled down on this winner.
All in all, we're super impressed by the 2022 Inspyre Evo-C line of bikes and offer them in both white, and grey colourways for 2022. At this price point, these Evo-C bikes represent extremely good value as a complete race bike, especially when you look closely at the specification list. Racers at this level are usually looking at stepping up to a custom build as a way to improve performance, though this comes at a price that would be easily double of this bike here. Save yourself all that trouble of finding all the parts to build a bike and order a Evo-C. You won't be disappointed.
