The new EVO is an extremely smooth and predictable carving ski with no surprises. It carries speed through the turn and builds progressive angle into the wakes. The EVO's heritage is taken from the World Record holding ARC which has been the bestsellingRead more...
Recommended weight range
Skier ability and line length may affect recommendation
New bevel angle - Keeps the ski moving as the turn is completed. Resulting in a noticeable reduction in effort required as the ski loads into the wake.
Balanced rocker profile - The turns on both sides are quicker and more complete. Flat spot position allows skier to easily stay in the sweet-spot.
Re-shaped concave - Deep where holding power is required, shallower where it can enhance the turns.
Tapered tail - Provides the desired combination of support and slide resulting in maximum angle with minimal skier input.
Pro-gressive flex- A stiffer flex philosophy that is focused on a linear, tip-to-tail flex ratio.
Regardless of boat speed or line length the EVO is designed to transport skiers to a whole new level of performance. Sizing of the EVO is very critical. For this reason the EVO is available in inch increments.
The general key thing with the EVO D3 wanted to achieve with to create a smoother ski, with better onside turning capabilities ("intuitive turn") that has "less load" behind the boat. To achieve this, the EVO has a slightly deeper concave bottom than the ARC that flattens as you get closer to the tail. Blend this with a bit more tip and tail rocker and a slightly narrower tail...and you have a ski that is more predictably and has better edge hold across the wake while still having the ability to "slide-push" the tail around at the finish of the turn to create angle when you need it. The deeper concave under your feet is designed to trap more water and yield a better edge hold over the front foot / behind the boat.....creating more width with less effort. The shallower concave through the back of the ski gives the ski the "slide" that Nate has asked for to help generate angle out of the turn.
