Went on a group ride today and i got to try out one (two) of those evolve GTR’s… so very first step i ask if it is sensored. I got told to kill the battery if i can. I hit the throttle and 2 feet After, the board disconnects, tosses me off gently and begins to smoke from the usb port My very first experience on an evolve was off to a great start. I felt really bad but instead of being upset they just gave me another gtr to try out. After riding it around a bit successfully this time, I have to say… Not a bad board! I really like the carbon fiber deck. The power is definitely lacking compared to my diy but it would have been awesome to have as my first board. I really liked the control but HATED the trucks. They were so fidgety and they acted squirly while accelerating. I get the turning ability is vastly improved but i like going fast…im still curious as to what happened to the first board.
This was an action packed group ride. Someone experienced why diyeboards trucks are shit first hand. That guys wheel caused another rider to bail as well. Shout out to @Arzamenable!!! Great dude with some great Esk8 knowledge!
