Coextruded Polymer Topsheet
Carbon Max Laminate Technology
More carbon equals more power and performance. The 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.
Fusion Rocker Camber Profile
Introducing Fusion RC. NS put the edge gripping hold, the snap out of turns, and the huge pop of Ripsaw RC in the back and combined it with the float and surfy feel of Original RC in the front. Fusion is here to bring back the fun and fluidity that will make snowboarding dynamic again.
Extended Transition Area
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 radiuses which provide the second and third contact points. Towards the ends of the sidecut are deep radiuses which render quick turn initiation and the final contact points. The Chairman Power Grip Sidecut has two more radiuses for additional edge hold.

STS Pretensioned Fiberglass
The world's best snowboard fiberglass, period. Never Summer's STS PRE-TENSIONED FIBERGLASS is an advanced pre-hardened, pre-tensioned, layered laminate that has added elastomer stringers between the 0 degree and 90 degree glass fibers (the length of the effective edge). This produces a stronger bond between the individual glass laminates giving our snowboards unmatched strength, edge hold and performance.
BI-LITE FIBERGLASS combines many of the strength characteristics of NS'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 durable core on the market. NS's NS SUPERLIGHT WOOD CORE is CNC sanded in a custom wood working facility to a fraction of a millimeter. A tailored flex is perfected, giving the board an 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's higher end boards. Just the right amount of graphite has been added making the DURASURF XT SINTERED 5501 BASE the fastest ever used.
