To understand what is coming: GTR SERIES 2
As I flipped the hour glass, my time started.
Here's a summary of an hour and further condensed into what your now reading, an Insider into the GTR series 2.
Carving, digging your heels into those concaves on the Bamboo deck. Still the same AMAZING Bamboo look, honestly the best on the market when it comes to natural flex, shock absorption and just great general aesthetic.
Build quality that should make all e-Skaters want to own not one, but 2 boards from Evolve
More power, better performance, blast up hills, glide over trails and skid for days on grass.... shred shred shred!
Runs cooler, after 2 hours of riding up hill and on grass, just really riding.... then coming back to touch the motors and finding out they're barely warm. That's what you can expect.
As for cosmetics, it still comes with those great Evolve ceramic bearings and more options for gear setups.
Servicing the board is slightly easier as motor components are closer together thanks to a more durable enclosure design.
Same battery, but way better management. The GTR series 2 has been tested for range and 50% battery gets you 17km with a payload of 70kgs (body weight). The series 1 for comparison used up 66%. So you could expect to get about 15% more life out the same battery. A test was done starting on GTR mode, and gave an impressive 34km range which was achieved with standard all terrain tyres.
Better acceleration, faster performance with tests coming in at 44kph to 45kph!
Big upgrade from series one, quicker off the line, smoother, more responsive
Strong acceleration even at 25kph, pulls away from the series 1 and the gap just keeps on growing
Braking is better, sharper and no lagging, when going fast down a hill the brakes are smooth with no twitching.
Series 2 runs quieter when compared to the GTR series 1
The GTR series 2 is the board of the year!
Evolve always has your back, try them and see.
