The Evo50 kit has the same tail blade holders and blades as the Evo30. These are for 4mm thick tail blades. I can only find 80mm tail blades that have a 4mm thickness (SAB ones) and these are listed as 30 size.

The 50 size seem to start at 87mm, but are 5mm thick, these will only fit by squeezing apart the grips, and would hold the blades too tight???

What can be used and how?

Thanks

Dave

3 choices.

stuff 'em in

open the grips and grind down the inner fillets which will give
you most of the 1mm you're missing.

use the Freya hub & grips which are 5mm

I'm running a set of Radix 92mm tail blades (5mm root) in my bone stock EVO 50 tail grips. A very little bit snug when going in but no issues whatsoever after installation.
