Never Summer Chairman
The Never Summer Chairman is the all mountain and freeride board for big guys. For those with bigger feet, it also comes in the Chairman X, which is the wide version.
Features of the Never Summer Chairman 2017
- Original Rocker Camber
Their original hybrid camber design, which has 3 main pressure areas on the board. There is a rocker section between your feet, which changes to camber underneat your feet, then back out to rocker on the tip and tail of the board. You end up with a playful ride, but it still gives you a stable and solid ride when you need it.
- 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
- Extended Transition Area
The small area (pictured in orange) that helps the board float in powder, as well as making nice smooth entry to turns.
- Chairman 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. The difference on the Chairman version is that there are two extra radiuses, to give more edge hold.
- 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.
- STS Pre-tensioned Fiberglass
Never Summers description – The world’s best snowboard fiberglass, period. Our STS Pre-Tensioned Fiberglass is an advanced, pre-hardened, pre-tensioned, layered laminate that has added elastomer stringers, between the 9 degree and 0 degree glasss 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
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
The highest amount of damping on a Never Summer board, it uses twice the amount of damping material than their other options, which means it absorbs the most vibrations, and stabilizes the nose in rough conditions.
- 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.
- Harmonic Tip/Tail Damper
These are made to try and remove small vibrations in the nose and tail, which help to keep the board stable when you are riding fast, but without removing the pop of the board.
