WHO WE ARE
Evolution Powersports was born from a passion for pushing performance boundaries. With over three decades of master-level ECU tuning experience in the motor- and powersports industries, co-founders Jim and Todd Zuccone cut their teeth in the dyno lab redefining power limits. A vision and brotherly pact in 2009 to deliver high-quality performance products for the powersports industry forever changed the aftermarket horsepower landscape. And those boundaries are still being pushed harder and farther every day. World-class tuning and product engineering is at EVP’s core, but we have also grown to become the leading source for complete aftermarket high-performance products with first-class go-fast offerings for side-by-sides, snowmobiles, and personal watercraft. A constant obsession for speed, pursuit of higher performance, and rigorous real-world testing regimen has led to numerous on- and off-road speed records and more podium finishes than anyone in SxS racing history with partnerships supporting the most advanced race programs in virtually every discipline. At EVP, reliable power and peak performance is always on tap.
EVP owns and operates three separate state-of-the art, climate controlled mainline and engine dynos between our Wisconsin Headquarters and Phoenix (AZ) R&D facilities. That’s where the magic begins. Whether developing ECU and clutching calibrations, big turbo upgrades, intake solutions, or our handcrafted-in-America exhaust systems, everything we engineer is based on how we ride and race. EVP products and calibrations get thoroughly tested in the most grueling real-world conditions to account for all variables our customers from around the world may encounter. From the dunes and desert heat, to the gnarliest trails, bounty holes and high-altitude destinations, all EVP products and calibrations go through the proverbial wringer before further testing and thrashing by our in-house race program and sponsored racers. Everything we produce is relentlessly tested and podium-proven before you can buy it to ensure long-term durability along with the exceptional performance and dependability that put EVP on the map.
WE RAISE WINNERS.
Why run EVP? Because the proof is in the podiums. Racing is—and always will be—a core ingredient to our recipe for success. And EVP-sponsored racers bring home more hardware than anyone else. Period. Multiple Sand Outlaws points championships in the prestigious Mod and Duner Classes, total domination in the Southern U.S. mud racing scene, and countless podium finishes in SCORE, Best in the Desert, King of the Hammers, Championship Off-Road and other major circuits. Bottom line: We raise winners. And our reputation for innovative, high quality, and relentlessly tested performance has garnered the support of the world’s top race teams as well as a diverse range of off-road enthusiasts constantly battling for bragging rights. This further fortifies our rigorous R&D process and drives our passion to continue evolving in the endless pursuit of: More Speed. More Power.
