The 2014 Never Summer Cobra X Snowboard strikes to kill any terrain. The wider version of the Cobra, it features blunted ends for reduced swing weight, a drawn out nose that knifes through soft snow and a blunted quick spade tail to enhance float in powder. Slightly setback for a more directional ride, the Cobra X comes equipped with a dual top and bottom carbon matrix that provides incredible power underfoot. Its futuristic shape combined with Vario Power Grip Sidecut makes it one of the highest performing and most versatile all mountain boards on the market. Ride the snake!
Original Rocker & Camber Profile (RC) Rocker underfoot for flotation, mobility, and a forgiving feel, plus camber extending from the outside of the mounting area to the transition area for superior edge hold and explosive pop. The transition area at the end of the camber extends to the effective edge keeping the board from pushing against the snow for effortless glide while making it less likely to catch an edge. RC delivers all the benefits of a rocker design with the spring, stability and edgehold of camber.
Flex Rating (1 Soft - 10 Stiff) 5.5, slightly stiff flex good for high speed freestyle and freeride riding
Directional Shape Made for freeriding, this directional shape will make your board slice through anything and increase floatation.
Vario Power Grip Sidecut Multi-radius sidecut adds increased edgehold precisely where it's needed most, from 2 inches outside of each binding and inward toward the center of the board, providing added control and response in any conditions (Sidecut Radius numbers are an average).
NS Superlight Wood Core Taking their custom flight core even further, they've designed the SUPERLIGHT WOOD CORE specifically for the new Carbonium series which blends extremely light wood with durable hardwood for unmatched strength to weight ratio.
Carbonium Laminate Technology More carbon equals more power and performance. The new Carbonium Laminate Technology combines an advanced top and base carbon matrix to maximize torsional response and strength where it's needed most. The result is a lightweight yet powerful design that keep the Carbonium Series boards going stong for years.
Carbonium Dampening System (CDS) The CDS greatly reduces vibration and provides unmatched high speed stability and control. Thin elastomeric rubber stringers reduce vibration from the metal edge and surrounding laminates. Stringers below the inserts and under the carbon dampen any additional vibration near the bindings, giving the Carbonium Series boards a smooth riding feel underfoot without sacrificing snap and power throughout the board.
STS Pretensioned Fiberglass The world's best snowboard fiberglass, period. STS ADVANCED FIBERGLASS is pre-hardened, pre-tensioned, layered laminate that has added elastomer stringers between the 0 degree and 90 degree glass fibers the length of the effective edge. This produces a stronger bond between the individual glass laminates giving this snowboard unmatched strength, edge hold and performance.
Bi-Lite Fiberglass BI-LITE fiberglass combines many of the strength characteristics of STS ADVANCED fiberglass with an ultra light glass fiber matrix. This delivers incredible freestyle and freeride performance without sacrificing durability.
Sintered P-Tex Sidewall Unlike conventional ABS sidewalls, that have a tendency to crack in colder temperatures, SINTERED P-TEX SIDEWALLS maintain their integrity at any temperature.
P-Tex tip and tail protection
Durasurf XT Sintered 5501 Base Crown Plastics has developed an exclusive, super fast, durable sintered base specifically for the Carbonium Series. Just the right amount of graphite has been added making it the fastest base NS has ever used.
Fully Wrapped Metal Edge Provides unmatched carving ability and edge grip
Carbonium Topsheet A very durable, scratch and chip resistant material with a high tech carbon fiber like visual. This textured material also provides more grip than a gloss topsheet working as a built in stomp pad.
Elastomeric Underfoot Stabilizers Elastomeric Rubber Stabilizers directly below the mounting area provide optimum vibration absorption and increase high speed stability while reducing foot fatigue.

I went from a pretty slow rider to having great control and smoking my friends down the slopes. Best board I've ever had by far.
