evo continues to expand and improve its mountain bike gear offerings for both men and women.

  • The new evo Lookout Jersey (Men’s | Women’s) provides peak performance on rides both big and small. Offered in both long-sleeve and short-sleeve styles, its featherlight fabric provides a comfortable, breezy feel while maintaining the durability, and sun protection you need to navigate tight trees and techy drops with confidence.
  • All new evo Lightweight Bike Gloves (available in both unisex and Women’s sizing) are light on the hand but heavy on the tech with minimal weight and optimal breathability. The lightweight gloves feature an AX® Suede palm for superior grip and feel, a breathable design, and touchscreen compatibility.
  • All new design evo’s Enduro Bike Gloves were built to endure and perform on even the most white-knuckle rides. The updated design features touchscreen compatibility, EVA padded AX® Suede palm, and 3-finger knuckle guards.
  • The evo Enduro Hip Pack offers a comfortable and breathable spacer mesh back panel/hip belt, plus organizational pocketing for tools, snacks, and hydration.

Founded in 2009 based on evo’s core value of “invitation,” evoTrip prides itself on bringing together like-minded travelers to nearly 80+ exciting and breathtaking outdoor destinations without having to worry about stress-inducing trip logistics. New for 2024, evo is launching a collection of epic, unique-to-evo bike experiences, in partnership with best-in-class MTB operators and brands marking a significant step forward in the journey of becoming the global leader in action sports travel to iconic mountain bike destinations around the world.

In partnership with Big Mountain Bike Adventures, this new trip will take serious mountain bikers to the north-west corner of Italy where they can expect more than 3,000 miles of singletrack near some of the biggest peaks in Europe – Mont Blanc, Grand Combin, Gran Paradiso, and the Matterhorn. Not to mention, exceptional cuisine, superb espresso, and outstanding vino; it’s Italy after all.

evoTrip and Norrøna Adventure will take riders on a 6-day trip full of biking and relaxation in beautiful surroundings right in the heart of Telemark. This trip is perfect for intermediate and above riders who love combining mountain biking, delicious locally-produced food, and spa relaxation in the wilderness.

  • Salt Lake City, Utah (May 31-June 2, June 7-9, Sept. 6-9, Sept. 13-15)

evoTrip has expanded its Salt Lake City camp offerings with both all-gender camps and women’s-only camps. These new bike skills camps are designed for having a blast while safely progressing at the individual level. evoTrip’s experienced guide partners at Momentum Mountain Biking ensure a 5:1 instructor-to-rider ratio and pare down smaller groups based on ability.

Returning for its second year this September, evoTrip x Juliana will help women riders take it to the next level with the support of Juliana, evo and Momentum Cycling. Guests will get to ride the newest bikes from Juliana, stay at evo Hotel, and have logistics to and from the mountain taken care off.

In support of evo’s dedication to the local communities in which they operate, evo will be hosting “Trailgate” Parties and Trailhead Takeovers in Seattle, Denver, and Salt Lake City this summer. To celebrate International Women’s Bike Day on May 4, evo will be hosting trailhead events in Seattle, Portland, Salt Lake City, Denver, and Whistler, complete with free women’s mountain bike rentals and group rides.
