Well I just got the wide clyde for my kids evo. I haven't put it on yet but it should be just those plastic push pins to switch them out so it shouldn't be to hard to switch back and forth. It should be Part #: 2878512. Its not the super tall one but is wide which I figure will be better for the shorter riders...

That looks good
thank you!
You wouldn't know how that compares to the extra tall?
sure looks like it would help a lot esp. with hands..

Thats what I got on my pro r. The wind practically goes right over my head. I can actually feel it just push my head down at high speed. Protects the hands too.

Photo comparison of the Low-Mid (matte black), Mid & the Wide Clyde (not the extra tall Wide Clyde) I have the Mid installed on my sled currently.
