Tear up the whole mountain, and throw some shade while you do with the Never Summer Shade Snowboard.
Original Rocker Camber – This profile is shaped for a surfy and playful feel while maintaining superior performance and versatility.
Extended Transition Area – Never Summer adds a small flat section in the snowboard profile that improves both turn initiation and powder flotation.
Flex Rating – Soft/ Dampness Rating – Snappy
Low Profile Tip/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 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.
Power Grip Sidecut – Power Grip Sidecut with Rocker Camber is the science of snowboarding perfected. Power Grip Sidecut utilizes multiple radiii creating extra contact points to enhance edge hold.
NS Superlight Wood Core – Never Summer uses a custom blend of wood species that was created to be the lightest weight yet durable core on the market. The NS Superlight Wood Core is CNC sanded in the custom wood working facility to a fraction of a millimeter. A tailored flex is perfected, giving their snowboards unequaled performance.
Power Strip Carbon – Carbon stringers in a straight line from the inserts out to the ends of the board for added stability on landings. The placement of the beams also increases pop in the nose and tail without adversely effecting the mid-flex of the board.
Freestyle Damping System – Specifically designed for some of our freestyle models, FDS utilizes thinner rubber foil for a lighter, snappier feel while still providing the legendary NS smooth ride.
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 higher end boards. Just the right amount of graphite has been added making the Durasurf XT Sintered 5501 Base the fastest Never Summer has ever used.
