Carbon Max Laminate Technology
More carbon equals more power and performance. Carbon Max Laminate Technology combines an advanced top and bottom carbon matrix to maximize response and strength where it's needed most. The result is a lightweight, yet powerful configuration that provides torsional rigidity and energy transfer without sacrificing the control a rider needs.
Original Rocker Camber Profile
Provides a surfy and playful feel while maintaining superior performance and versatility.
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...it allows the board to track straight and not catch. Flanking this straight section are two shallow radiuses that provide the second and third contact points. Toward the ends of the sidecut are deep radiuses that render quick turn initiation and the final contact points.
Combines many of the strength characteristics of Never Summer's STS fiberglass with an ultra-light glass fiber matrix. This delivers incredible freestyle and freeride performance without sacrificing durability.
NS SuperLight Wood Core
Using a custom blend of wood species that was created to be the lightest weight, yet most durable core on the market. Never Summer's SuperLight Wood Core is CNC sanded in a custom woodworking facility to a fraction of a millimeter. A tailored flex is perfected, giving the board unequaled performance.
RDS 1 Damping System
The laminated damping layers on the RDS 1 are more extensive along the full length of the effective edge and less extensive in the tip and tail, giving the board high-speed stability with reduced tip and tail swing weight.
Elastomeric Underfoot Stabilizers
Elastomeric Underfoot Stabilizers directly below the mounting area provide optimum vibration absorption and increase high-speed stability while reducing foot fatigue.
Sintered P-Tex Sidewall
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 temps, Sintered P-Tex Sidewalls maintain their integrity at any temp.
Durasurf Sintered 5501 Base
Crown Plastics has developed an exclusive, super fast, durable sintered base specifically for NS' higher-end boards. Just the right amount of graphite has been added, making the Durasurf XT Sintered 5501 Base the fastest ever.
