The West is a different kind of animal. This dynamic snowboard is quickly becoming one of our most popular models. Our aggressive enhanced Ripsaw Rocker Camber Profile, NS SuperLight Wood Core, and mid flex, makes the West extremely powerful yet agile. Directional performance balanced for freestyle mobility, the West is equally at home ripping quick turns, slashing pow or catching air. Versatility as expansive as the land itself
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.
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.
NS SuperLight Wood Core – This core blends extremely light wood with durable hardwood for unmatched strength to weight ratio.
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
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
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
Carbonium Topsheet – A very durable, scratch and chip resistant material with a high tech carbon fiber like visual. This textured material also provides more grip than a gloss topsheet, working as a built in stomp pad
