There are a ton of action sport retailers out there, but there is one that excels above the rest and that company is evo.
(evo is never capitalized)
evo is an innovative action sports and outdoor lifestyle retailer selling the latest ski, snowboard, bike, wake, skate and surf gear – everything you need for your next adventure. evo’s focus on community and crafting extraordinary customer experiences has propelled the company from its humble beginnings in a small Seattle apartment to one of the fastest growing lifestyle retailers in the nation.

Through evo’s adventure travel packages (evoTrips), travel enthusiasts can experience the evo lifestyle of sport and culture through destination travel to ski, snowboard, or mountain bike remote wonders around the world.

Leveraging their success to give back, evo also helps underserved youth through volunteer time, donations, and other support for local and national non-profit organizations including SOS Outreach and Chill Foundation.
I have had the pleasure to get to know a few members of the evo crew, including their founder Bryce Phillips, their general manager of evoTrip & giving back Ashley Miller, the e-commerce marketing manager Nick Marvik and the Portland Store Manager Jordan Sunshine , all of which are incredible people. evo is a family of action sport enthusiasts that want to improve their sports while also giving back.
