Never Summer Onyx Review
The Never Summer Onyx is true twin, low weight, freestyle snowboard for serious park riders.
Features of the Never Summer Onyx
- Matte Topsheet
Nothing fancy, it is just matte rather than shiny.
- 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.
- 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.
- Press Flex Core
- FDS Damping System
The freestyle daming system has a thinner rubber foil, which gives a lighter snappier feel, but still gets the smooth feeling ride.
- 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.
- 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.
