After hitting with the 2019 Easton Elevate and discussing the bat with several vendors and players we write this review.
In short, the single piece aluminum bat is positioned in the value bat space and comes with a decent barrel size, good sizing options and, if you can square the ball up, impressive power.

We surveyed over 2,000 players on their 2019 bat usage. We asked what bat they used, how they liked it and what bat they think is the best. We parsed that data into each individual bat and report those on our review pages. As well, we aggregated data on the bat brands overall ranking.

In short, the single piece aluminum bat is positioned in the value bat space and comes with a decent barrel size, good sizing options and, if you can square the ball up, impressive power. But, don’t confuse the Easton Elevate with a high end, travel player type bat in the single piece aluminum space like the CAT 8 or Solo 619. The Elevate is built for the mostly serious rec player who is not willing to pony up more money than is reasonable.
We recommend the Elevate for the serious rec player that wants a new bat. If hand sting bothers you, or you prefer the barrel size associated with composite barrels, then the Easton Elevate is not for you. But, in the USSSA and USA space, if you don’t see too serious of pitch speed and want a new bat for 2019 then the Easton Elevate is as good as any.
There was not a 2018 Easton Elevate. But, in terms of a single piece aluminum bat in the value space that covers a lot of sizing options, check Easton's S500. That is a 2016 bat---so it has been a few years. We expect the Easton Elevate to be around for a while.
There are a few single piece aluminum bats with the same amount of breadth as the Easton Elevate. The biggest competitor is, likely, Rawling’s 5150. There are others, like Slugger’s Vapor or DeMarini’s Uprising that fit well into this single piece value category.
Easton’s 2019 Elevate is a single piece aluminum bat. The end cap is also aluminum (many bat’s have end caps that are plastic). You should expect as good durability there is the space.
Easton’s 2019 Elevate comes in every league we can think of. You’ll find a BBCOR drop 3, USSSA Drop 9 and a USA drop 11. The drop, you should know, is the numerical difference between the length of the bat in inches and the weight of the bat in ounces.
