The Evo is North's answer for all your riding needs. As the North team says, the Evo is the kite to own if you change your riding style as often as you change your clothes. Evo is the weapon of choice of North team riders Jaime Herraiz and Tom Hebert, who demand no compromise performance, so it has to be an excellent kite. It is an all round kite which can accommodate virtually any riding style.
The 2013 Evo is designed to offer exceptional freeride and freestyle performance, but it does more than that. It is an all round kite which can be used in various conditions with ease. It is crafted using a Delta oriented design which makes it a smooth flyer and quite user friendly.
The Evo has a smooth and progressive power delivery. It actually feels more like a C-kite than like a delta hybrid. The rider can feel the kite and can rely on its predictability at all times. The adaptive tips combined with an innovative strut configuration assure excellent turning speed and responsive control.
In terms of depower and relaunch, the North Evo performs admirable. Evo is a lively kite, easy to handle, powerful, yet forgiving. It suits all kinds of styles: hooked or unhooked, strapped or strapless, freeride, freestyle, wave riding and more.
The condition of the kite is 8/10 - only one small repair to the canopy as pictured. The kite comes with the 2013 North Trust bar included in the price.
