What Are Riders Saying About this Product
Great improvement over the older remote.
Love the new remote. Huge improvement compared to the original remote. Dont have any connection problems and has a smoother feel. Wish I upgraded earlier.
Great remote, could be tougher
I bought two remotes to replace the R1 remotes we already had for our Carbon GT & Bamboo GT boards. After a couple of rides it soon became apparent that these are much better remotes. They link faster and more consistently, the throttle and brake are much smoother. I didn’t like the ‘dead man’ switch much but there’s an option to switch it off so problem sorted. The only criticism I’ll offer, and the reason I didn’t go full 5star, is that it’s too easy to break. If you’re a bit of a newbie and fall and hit the ground striking the nose of the remote it’ll shear apart breaking the display :-(
On the upside Evolve are a company with very good customer support so I’ve sent it in for repair... but I’m also gluing a rubber bumper onto the nose of my remaining remote!
Would be better if battery percentage was displayed like the old one.
