I see the Proto as a souped up Evo. Same dampening, same shape, both twins etc.
That's what it felt like to me when I rode both the Proto and Evo at the demo day.

BA did say that... but he has also said the follow regarding the Cobra.

Think of it as a directional Proto honestly Id recommend buying something else if youre going to freeride or slash pow.
