Never Summer West

Never Summer West 2017

The Never Summer West is an all mountain board with a medium flex and the RipSaw camber profile.

Features of the Never Summer West

  • 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 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.
  • 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
    The small area on the (orange on the picture above) that helps the board float in powder, as well as making nice smooth entry to turns.
  • 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.
  • 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 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 and Tail Protection
    P-Tex surround the ends of the wood core to protect it against impacts, and help to reduce vibrations.
