Evan Grott's Bio

I'm orginally from a small town in upstate New York. I moved out to Utah in September of 10' and am loving every second of it. I had the best ski season of my life this past year and am looking forward to many more.

Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
Fit: True to size

I use these while i need to stand in the cold for long periods of time without moving much. they are a saver when it is freezing cold. Wool is obviously great and fends off smells pretty well which is nice. fit is on point.

Keeps drinks hot or keeps them cold. Insulated mug with a lid to keep contents from spilling. just as good as competitors, if anything id be stoked if it didnt do an amazing job! i prefer to be able to drink my coffee when i actually make it. not an hour and a half after because its too hot to drink.

The Cleaver has taken Powder Magazines skiers choice this season as well as Freeskier Magazines Editors pick! If you are looking for a ski that seems to be closing in on a "one ski quiver" for this less then spectacular season start than this is the ski!
- handmade in the tetons this ski is reinforced with a titanal strip running the length of the core, this helps make the ski a little more damp so you charge through that variable terrain they like to call crud. The Cleaver likes to make pretty large turns, and finds it home at chasing your local resorts best fall line skiing, The cleaver loves speed, making smooth turns and allowing you to find your own inner speed limit.

please feel free to reach out directly if you have any questions with the Cleaver. its easily one of my favorite directional skis out there and have had a helping hand in design of this ski!

The Bighorn 96 is an all mountain twin tip that rips anywhere from the bumps to groomers and even a few laps through the park will have you cheesin from ear to ear. I typically ski on the big brother to this ski (bighorn106) on a trip back east this fall i had the chance to take out the 96s and was completely floored. playful yet stable at all speeds. easily able to do butters if thats your cup of tea. stiff enough underfoot to go big and fast. Check out some of the full reviews of this ski with an award from Freeskier (editors pick) and a solid review from newschoolers! also please feel free to reach out to me directly if you have any other questions.

The Big Horn 106s have been my go to ski for the past season. It is a ski that can handle high speeds, big airs, and rip groomers. You will find yourself having a blast on this ski whether it be a day your local hill didn't receive any snow last night too oh my god its waist deep. The Big Horn does a surprisingly good job floating in the deep stuff and is playful all around the hill.
Please feel free to reach out to me direct if there are any detailed questions on any of the Sego line. I have had a helping hand in building and shaping a lot of these skis that are all handmade in Victor, ID.

I bought this show becasue ive always been a flat rider and decided to branch out of the comfort zone a little and try clipless while they do both well i do occasionally miss my normal flat shoes. i do get more grip with my flats over these which makes sense. but I also enjoy the capability of being able to ride clipless if i choose. i also enjoy the stiffer shoe over my flats.

this pillow is currently the least expensive blowup pillow we sell with a valve that is trusted and works, not only that but the pillow is a dream to sleep on. big enough for my large noggin and compacts down nice and small.

I managed to snap this chain in under 30 rides, which was a bummer. ive always had good luck with my X0 11-speed chains but was pretty disappointed when this one that doesnt have a whole lot of ride time on it managed to melt apart under my feet. i was able to replace the links but am now naturally a little weary.

Kavu has stolen my heart recently, i bought this shirt for the graphics primarily but fell in love with the fit, small accents are what make the shirt pop compared to most long sleeve button ups on the market. i love the fact that they ran two different prints and depending on how its worn you can be as casual or clean as you want
