PRODUCT DETAILS

ROCKER TYPE

Ripsaw Rocker Profile – The Ripsaw Rocker Camber Profile features enhanced cambered areas for aggressive edge hold and tremendous pop while maintaining the versatility of Original Rocker Camber.

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 SuperLight Wood Core – This core blends extremely light wood with durable hardwood for unmatched strength to weight ratio.

LAMINATES

Carbon Max Laminate Technology – Carbon Max Laminate Technology combines an advanced top and base carbon matrix to maximize response and strength where you need it the most. The result is a lightweight yet powerful configuration that provides torsional rigidity and energy transfer without sacrificing 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.

Harmonic Tip/Tail Damper – Harmonic Dampers in the tip and tail take out a high percentage of residual vibration by quieting the nose and tail. This enhances stability at speed, in variable snow conditions and on board landings without deadening the liveliness and pop of the cambered areas.

Perforated Rocker Pad – Perforated to reduce weight, these thin elastomeric pads are strategically located in the mid-section of the board. This absorbs the vibration between the feet and provides a buffer in the rocker area, which is in continuous contact with the snow.

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.

BASE

Durasurf XT Sintered 5501 Base – Crown Plastics has developed an exclusive, super fast, durable sintered base specifically for Never Summer’s higher end boards. Just the right amount of graphite has been added making the Durasurf XT Sintered 5501 Base the fastest base NS has ever used.
