Coextruded Polymer Topsheet
Carbon VXR Laminate Technology
CARBON VXR extends carbon fiber V's 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.
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
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.
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 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.
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 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 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.
