The Ego Trip Evolution is a paradox: A lightweight touring ski which planes effortlessly in deep snow, but is enjoyable to ski in mixed snow conditions like spring corn and wind crust.
The key to the Evo is its hourglass shape, which pairs a conservative underfoot width of 95mm with an unusually wide, smooth rising, shovel nose. This keeps the Ego Trip Evo fast edge-to-edge and easy to pivot in confined spaces, but guarantees plenty of surface area for getting on top of the pow.
In the skin track the Evo’s BBP core, a jigsaw puzzle of Balsa, Birch and Paulownia, dramatically cuts overall weight and additional HEXO2 windows make the tips so light that kick turns whip-around in an instant.

S-Rocker, the ultimate freeride camber-line, features a blend of cleverly placed camber and rocker. Rocker in the nose aids floatation and improves deep snow agility.
