Comment

The Evo is like a good friend; gently and always there for you due to it's huge windrange. It is a very mellow kite which could for some people be the best North kite. For example the ones that like to do old school tricks with board-offs and dead mans. It can be a good choice for many kiters who are looking for something a bit more alive than a Rebel. Less suitable for freestyle though, although North does claims it to be a freeride/freestyle kite.

Comment

Level intermediate, I choose this Kite to improve quietly, and I did, during freeride, littles waves, transition, jumps; always undercontrol. I progressivly changed my setting to High speed on the 12 and medium on 9 & 6. The settings follow perfectly my improvement.
My 24 metres lines are good for beginner to intermediate. I look now to get a second quadcontrolbar in 22 meters to give more speed to my 12m², and try on my 9m².
So very good kite.
But even if the quality is fine, my canopy was destroyed by the lazypump system during packing and storage, not in use; So it has to be very carefull when packing and travelling.
I hope 2016 EVO will be protect around these zones, because I've found my perfect Kite.
