PRODUCT DETAILS

ROCKER TYPE

Original Rocker Camber – Never Summer’s Original Rocker Camber profile begins with rocker at the nose and tail. Directly underfoot the bend translates into a traditional camber where it meets a subtle rocker between the bindings. The Original Rocker Camber provides a surfy and playful feel while maintaining superior performance and versatility.

Extended Transition Area – A small flat section in the snowboard profile that improves both turn initiation and powder flotation.

FLEX

Mid Flex

SHAPE

Vario Power Grip Sidecut – Vario Power Grip Sidecut utilizes multiple radiuses creating extra contact points to enhance edge hold. A flat section in the rocker area provides a broad contact point when flexed, however when unbent allows the board to track straight and not catch. Flanking this straight section are two shallow radius which provide the second and third contact points. Towards the ends of the sidecut are deep radius which render quick turn initiation and the final contact points.

Low Profile Tip and Tail – A low profile in the nose and tail of the snowboard maximizes material contact with the snow for more powerful ollie/nollie pop and adds stability to your landings. Low Profile tip/tail also reduces the plowing effect in the nose for better glide to the next feature and superior float when it’s deep.

CORE

NS Custom Flight Core – Designed and built in the NS WoodCore facility, these cores fuse premium hardwood and ultra-light softwood laminates together with vertical layers of elastomeric vibration dampers. These lightweight perimeter dampers actually increase vibration absorption the faster you ride while maintaining an incredible amount of snap and liveliness, providing a level of edge hold and high-speed performance that only Never Summer Snowboards can deliver.

LAMINATES

Carbon VXR Laminate Technology – Carbon V’s extend out from the inserts to the effective edge for quick response while stiffening the board torsionally. Additionally, V’s are positioned to the ends of the board providing maximum boost and pop when loaded up. This is an ideal layup to transfer energy to the end of the effective edge, tip/tail, and still give the board a softer, more forgiving mid flex for torsional control.

STS Pretensioned Fiberglass – The world’s best snowboard fiberglass. Never Summer’s STS advanced fiberglass is a pre-hardened, pretensioned layered laminate that has added elastomer stringers between the 0 degree and 90 degree glass fibers. This produces a stronger bond between the individual glass laminates giving snowboards unmatched strength, edge hold, and performance.

Bi-Lite Fiberglass – Bi-Lite combines many of the strength characteristics of STS Advanced fiberglass with an ultra-light glass fiber matrix. This delivers incredible freestyle and freeride performance without sacrificing durability.

RDS 2 Damping System – This lightweight system uses three narrower laminated damping layers that provide the perfect combination of vibration absorption and stability. RDS 2 is the perfect balance of freeride stability and freestyle liveliness.

Elastomeric Underfoot Stabilizers – Elastomeric Rubber Stabilizers directly below the mounting area provide optimum vibration absorption and increase high-speed stability while reducing foot fatique.

SIDEWALLS

Sintered P-Tex Sidewalls – Never Summer was the first snowboard company to use and perfect Sintered P-Tex Sidewalls, and they’ve never seen one crack. Unlike conventional ABS sidewalls that have a tendency to crack in colder temperatures, Sintered P-Tex Sidewalls maintain their integrity at any temperature.
