North EVO from year to year

Postby SpyrosAKAgi » Thu Mar 26, 2020 12:16 pm

Hello to everyone!
I have one simple question regarding the EVO.
If we examine the EVO models from 2015 until 2019 are there any differences regarding the KITELOOPS? From all the models you get the same feedback (power- steering - hangtime)?
If it helps I am talking for a 9m and a 7m.
Thanks a lot for your time!
Aloha!

The EVO changed pretty drastically from 2015 to 2016. The new one being much closer to the Rebel than before.

And then in 2018 it got another significant Update when it became a 3 Strut Kite instead of 5 Struts before.

All of them are fine for looping, for sure better than the Rebel but imo the Dice Loops the best.

Hope this helps.

And in 2020 they dropped the pulleys for the bridles with now a direct connection.

Maybe worth noting that during this year King of the Air several Duotone riders used an EVO at some point during the competition (Lewis Crathern, Antonin Rangin, Aurelien Petreaux at least). Not sure for Reno Romeu.
