Never Summer Aura

Never Summer Aura 2017

The Never Summer Aura is a pretty aggressive freeride board, with a directional shape, mid firm flex and the RipSaw camber profile.

Features of the Never Summer Aura 2017

  • Carbonium Topsheet
    It’s a tough material, that resists scratches when people ride over your board in the lift line, and has texture so it works like a big stomp pad.
  • Carbon Max Laminate Technology
  • Ripsaw Rocker Camber Profile
    The Ripsaw profile has the same feel as the original Rocker Camber design, but has more aggresssive camber sections, so you get better edge hold and more pop.

  • Extended Transition Area
    A larger transition area (flat section shown in orange in the picture above) that helps for easy turn initiation (starting a turn) and helps the float in powder.
  • Vario Power Grip Sidecut
    There are a few different radiuses, which are combined to give the board extra contact points, so you get better edge hold. Out towards the nose and tail, there are deep radius sections, which change to shallow radius sections, then to a straight section in the middle of the board.

  • Low Profile Tip/Tail
    Low profile (thinner) tip and tail keep the highest amount of board touching the snow – which helps for float, pop for ollies and nollies and gives you more stability when your landings aren’t perfect, while keeping the weight down.
  • Bi-Lite Fiberglass
    This has some of the strength features of the STS fiberglass, but is much lighter.
  • NS SuperLight Wood Core
    The core is made from sustainable Hybrid Poplar wood, that is combined with Birch hardwood.
  • RDS 1 Damping System
    This is an extra layer in the board, which goes along the effective edge of the board (the part lf the edge you use). Made to give you more stability and a damper ride at high speed, without adding to the swing weight of the board.
  • Elastomeric Underfoot Stabilizers
    Under the bindings are areas that are made to absorb vibration, keep the board stable at speed and help reduce foot fatigue (by getting rid of vibrations).
  • Sintered P-Tex Sidewall
    P-Tex sidewalls have the advantage of being able to handle colder temperatures compared to ABS sidewalls, that can crack.
  • Durasurf XT Sintered 5501 Base
    The base material used on the higher end Never Summer boards, which is fast and durable, and has added graphite.
  • P-Tex Tip/Tail Protection
    P-Tex surround the ends of the wood core to protect it against impacts, and help to reduce vibrations.

If you are an aggressive rider, who likes riding big mountain, or carving fast on groomers, this is going to be a good choice. The combination of the medium/stiff flex, directional shape and the Ripsaw profile, are going to give you a stable, fast ride with the familiar Never Summer edge hold.
