October 2017 (UK)

“We left our real jobs to set up The Snowboard Shop because of our passion for riding, so I guess we feel that we can relate to the guys at Evolve, and that gets us stoked."

We are stoked to have The Snowboard Shop on-board in the UK as our first retailer, sharing our passion and love for the electric skateboarding!
 
Shop owner Darren spoke to us about why he chose to stock our products. 

"I love the fact that Evolve has been created by real surfers and snowboarders who have followed their dream to create a rad board that gets their customers stoked.
 
We've been riding snowboards for 20 years and selling them for over 10 and have always kept our eyes open for a board we can use here in the UK that feels similar to the sensation we get when we are in the mountains shredding our favourite snowboards.
 
We've tried lots of boards, some with motors and some without and the Evolve boards are by far the best we've tried.
 
Everyone seems hyped on the boards. We've taken a good about of customers out for a shred and everyone comes back smiling (when they come back, they're usually out way longer than we originally intend!).”

  

PRODUCT NEWS

We've dropped the price on our Bamboo Series 'ONE' board!

With newly upgraded motors, this bamboo board has old school characteristics of both the Pintail and Snubnose designs with an added kicktail in the rear of the board with a medium flex allowing for a smooth ride. The Evolve ONE is our lightest board ever and is a great board for those wanting something that is portable yet packed with performance and a ride to match!

Now priced at £840 it's the perfect board for those who want to experience what Evolve has to offer!

The new Evolve/ABEC 11 F1 wheels have arrived!

Evolve has teamed up with Abec 11 to bring to the community a bad ass electric skateboard wheel called F1!  This wheel is BIG and JUICY as it's made from Abec 11’s famous super soft Reflex Formula 74a. It feels like butter underfoot when riding! These wheels will unlock faster top speeds due to the larger wheel diameter, this wheel simply loves to roll and roll! Click here:

Evolve has partnered with ABEC to create the best wheel on market... We used ABEC's special reflex formula 74a and the result is a super soft wheel that feels like butter underfoot! 

We have placed a massive order of these wheels and they are on the way to selected distributers now. We will be accepting orders soon so stay tuned for more information.
The Evolve Mini Skate Van

Mike Howard shared his story with us, along with some images of his epic skate van! 
"My nephew, Jimmy transformed my MINI panel van to a SK8board transporting vehicle! The back contains 2x racks for 4 boards, thus the number plate SKA 844.

I am a 63 yr old maths teacher at an Adelaide Private School. I took an interest in electric skateboarding when I saw a bloke on a Fiik one day about 5 years ago. I had to have one!

Twenty-three boards later, I still buy them! Ten of my 23 boards have been Evolve. I currently have the Carbon GT {street}, Bamboo GTX {AT} and 3 x Bamboo Gen 2 { 2 x street and 1 x AT}. Whilst I like the GT and GTX, I have always loved the Bamboos and thus the reason I still have three of them. They are my favourite
.
I ride around Linear Park in Adelaide which follows the River Torrens in the city, the tracks at the Fleurieu Peninsula south of Adelaide and Victoria Park which is the venue for the Adelaide V8 car races. I particularly like the Fleurieu tracks as they are wide, have varying terrain and often follow the Southern Ocean so it is very picturesque.

I have only just recently joined a group of riders in SA and look forward to riding with them soon."

Name:
Florence Pruvost
Age: 38
Location: Perpignan (south of France/Spanish border) I live between the sea and the mountains
Occupation: Operating room nurse and a mother of 9-year-old twins
 
How did you find out about Evolve?
I had never skated before I discovered Evolve-  no surfing, and no skiing or snowboarding. I discovered Evolve with my boyfriend in June 2013 and I loved it immediately. The feeling is just “WHAOU!!!!!” I started to snowboard during the same year. Having a few months on Evolve boards really helped me learn. I find the same feeling/sensations in both snowboarding and skateboarding.
 
What is your favorite Evolve product?
Together with my boyfriend we have the Evolve Snubnose Gen1 and Evolve Pintail Gen1. These boards are easy to ride.
 
What do you use the board for?
The boards have great battery range for cruising and awesome trucks for carving. At the moment am I use my pintail to learn and master ‘dancing’. I would like a simple longboard to practice dancing and then reproduce it on my Evolve board. Riding my board is like music to my ears. I have a sensation of freedom, like I am the only one in the world. I feel very good after a ride! I can’t wait to share it with my children.
 
Where is your favorite place to ride?
I love riding near the sea, especially at the Lake of Annecy in the French Alps. It is a magical place that is about 40km around a lake. My dream is to ride in the best places around the world with my family and other evolvers… Hopefully I can attend Evolve World Cup 2018!

August 2017

August is all about family.

That's why we developed Evolve Insider, delivered straight to your inbox on the first Wednesday of every month. We promise to only feature the best of the best- updates from Evolve HQ, featured riders and locations, product updates, staff highlights, & customisations. Click here to subscribe. 

Meet this month’s featured rider, New Zealander Brian Lomas!

 

Age:

12 at heart, 49 on the outside

Location:

Auckland, New Zealand

Occupation:

I’ve done a few different things but right now…I’m a Learning and Development Advisor for Datacom (an IT company).

Q: How did you find out about Evolve?

A: In January 2017 I was looking at different ways to change and improve my work commute. I wanted to stop using my car, make better use of public transport and solve the last mile transportation problem. Amongst a bunch of other electric powered stuff that I looked into, I discovered electric skateboards. 

As an ex-skateboarder these caught my interest and the more I looked, the more videos I watched of people riding them, the more I wanted to try them out. I looked into what brands were around, spent a bunch of time reading reviews, comparing specifications and generally trying to weed out the good from the bad and finally arrived at Evolve’s doorstep. 

But…before making a $2k+ purchase decision that would fundamentally change my commute and need the family’s seal of approval, I had to ride a board to be sure. As luck would have it Jeff and Nick visited New Zealand in late February and whilst here organised a demo at Albert Park in Auckland. So, I took my kids with me to find out if the boards were really as awesome as I thought. 

Shortly after this the Carbon GT was made available on the New Zealand Evolve website… I got capex signoff, my board arrived and I started riding. I quickly discovered that although I had primarily planned to use the board for my work commute, the reality was that I quickly started riding it whenever I could especially because I could change the wheels to suit the ride, location, terrain etc. Why walk to the bottle store to get supplies when you can ride right?!?! 

Q: What is your favourite Evolve product? 

A: That is a tough question. My Carbon GT is awesome because it makes commuting a dream, looks incredible and has the power, range and versatility that I want. That said, I really like the idea of owning a flexible board that is more responsive when carving, sliding, etc. and for this I think either the One which I have tried or the new GTX, which I would love to try, would do the trick.

Q: What do you primarily use the board for

A: Commuting to and from work. It sounds dull but it is such a cool way to start and end each working day!


Q: Where is your favourite place and ride and why?

A: I love riding along the Auckland waterfront. Being beside the sea means you get an amazing view as well as an awesome ride. I also meet people along the way who ask questions about the board. It is a great opportunity to introduce them to the goodness that is Evolve! 

Q: Are you a part of any riders groups?

A: I’m pretty sure I was the first member of The Official Auckland Evolve Riders Group (on Facebook anyway!). It is a great group and we have a steadily growing community of riders that have turned up for group rides (and a beverage or two). 

It is a slight exaggeration (but not by much!) that since discovering eboards, Evolve and the endless wave…I haven’t been able to stop smiling and riding. My family hassle me a fair bit about my new obsession and even surprised me by creating an Evolve branded cake for my 49th birthday a couple of weeks back. I’ve managed to get both my kids and wife on my Carbon GT and the long term plan is to get all of them riding. I might need to get another board or two though ;-)
