Probably, but whatever really... I don't hit rails or boxes, just jumps, side hits and natural jibs (at least i'm working my way up to 'successfully hitting natural jibs )

Yeah the Evo isn't a noodle, and can be ridden anywhere... It butters super easy but I can't comment on rails and boxes, as I said I don't ride them.

To help out the OP, obviously the Evo leans more towards park, the proto more towards shredding the whole mountain including park... someone correct me if that's not totally accurate.
