Never Summer Proto HDX Review

The Never Summer Proto HDX is a versatile, wide, twin snowboard that is made to ride everywhere.

Features of the Never Summer Proto HDX

  • Carbonium Topsheet
  • Carbonium Laminate Technology
  • Extended Transition 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.
  • STS Pretensioned 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.
  • 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.
  • Perforated Rocker Pad
  • 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 5501 Base
    The base material used on the higher end Never Summer boards, which is fast and durable, and has added graphite.
