The Never Summer Infinity is a mid flexing, all mountain, ride anywhere snowboard.
Features of the Never Summer Infinity 2017
- Carbon VXR Laminate Technology
There are carbon V shapes that extend out from the inserts, to the effective edge. It is made to get good edge to edge response, and helping to make the board stiffer torsionally. There are extra V’s at the tip and tail of the board, to get the most pop when you load up the nose or tail.
- Matte Topsheet
Nothing fancy, it is just matte rather than shiny.
- New Blunted Shape
- Original Rocker Camber Profile
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.
- 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.
- Bi-Lite Fiberglass
This has some of the strength features of the STS fiberglass, but is much lighter.
- NS Custom Flightcore
- RDS 2 Damping System
There are three narrower laminated damping layers, that are made to get a combination of vibration, absorbtion and stability. It is made to get a nice mix of stability for freeriding, and liveliness for freestyle riding.
- 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 4501 Base
It is a high density base material that is fast and durable.
- P-tex Tip and Tail Protection
P-Tex surround the ends of the wood core to protect it against impacts, and help to reduce vibrations.

I love the quick turning ability this board has, I’m able to fly down the mountain and avoid Sunday skiers on a crowded slope. It’s a good over all mountain board that’s playful yet still stable at high speeds. Maybe not the greatest for the ice coast, but I’ve been riding it in Vermont with no problems.
