The SL is geared towards all-mountain riders. Most people on this forum adore the SL and have nothing but great things to say about it. I myself am in the process of buying one, so I have no actual experience with the board. If you plan on getting into jibbing/rails you might want to look elsewhere.

The Evo is more of a park-oriented board, if you see yourself spending a lot of time there it could be a solid choice. Won't handle as well all over the mountain but I'm sure it's not that bad, especially for the average rider.

I wanted to get an SL but I ended up with Evo. The Evo might not be a good all around but being my first real board I doubt I'm going to notice or care.

i ride my evo everywhere. while it might not be AS good as the SL for some things. it does just fine for me everywhere on the mountain. and its a great park board.

and yes i believe the SL stance is SLIGHTLY set back.

I have the 2010 EVO-R... I def can ride it all over the mountain down blue blacks etc... It def is not as stable when up on speed.. You def do get chatter bc it has less dampening. but after you ride it you get use to it and are comfortable with the high speeds and the chatter.. I def would not say "I dont feel safe" at high speeds. I feel in total control. If your looking to get into the park go for the evo it can handle the whole mtn

I have '10 Evo 153 and I'm 5'10 160lbs.
It handles fine even at speed once you get used to it - much better than I expected for a park board. You may want to go for 155 for all mountain, but then maybe you'd be better off with SL since you have a dedicated park board already?

This. I have the Revolver which is a wide Evo and I ride it everywhere. I actually rarely go into the park, but I got a really good deal on it at the end of last season when I was looking for an SL so I bought it. Haven't been disappointed at all. Like he said above, you do get some chatter at really high speeds, but you get used to it really quick and after that it's a non-issue.
