The Gear Condition Guide is designed to show you what to expect from each of our 8 condition levels. At evo, used gear goes through an extensive cleaning and grading process before it is shipped. Outside of new product, we have 6 used condition levels: Damaged Packaging, Premium, Standard Plus, Standard, Value, and Bargain Bin.
New means, well, new. Items in this condition are brand spanking new: this means they’re unused, unopened, and with all of the manufacturer tags and packaging intact. New items are eligible for the original manufacturer warranty.
A blem indicates some type of minor cosmetic imperfection that doesn't impact performance in any manner. Blemishes may include graphic imperfections or minor pits, bumps or scratches from the manufacturing process. These items are still brand-new and unused while passing on savings to you as a buyer. The full manufacturer warranty is still applicable to blem products.
Used - Damaged Packaging
Damaged packaging can range from a punctured box or torn bag to a simple missing tag. These items are new in every other regard. Warranties for these items are still applicable and the products themselves do not reflect any damage – just the packaging. Think of these as shipping-related bumps and bruises that bring you major savings.
Used - Premium
Practically new. Products with a “premium” condition rating have experienced minimal use and reflect little to no cosmetic wear. Premium condition products are the best of the best in used gear.
Used - Standard PlusLightly used items that have been well cared for. These products will likely exhibit a few cosmetic scuffs, scratches, and/or show slight signs of wear, but they still perform perfectly.
Used - StandardUsed but not abused. Products of this condition show signs of consistent use, but their performance during future use will not be compromised. Overall, these products are in good, working condition.
Used - ValueThese items have been well loved, but still have plenty of life left for a passionate and budget-minded owner who may be new to the discipline. Cosmetic signs of use should be expected as well as some non-performance-inhibiting dings, dents, or worn corners. At the end of the day, these are in-good-working order products with massive savings for you!
Used - Bargain BinProducts listed as “bargain bin” will reflect significant signs of use or wear that may shorten the life of the product, while still being in good and safe working order. If you are new to the sport or simply looking for the deepest deal, these products give you the opportunity to score sweet gear at a killer price.
