Product Info

If versatility is what you're after, the 2014 Never Summer Legacy Snowboard (the mid-wide version of the SL) is what you seek. NS modified their Custom Flight Core to reduce weight and increase pop. They've also added Carbon VXR Laminate Technology for powerful edge response and control. The lightweight RDS 2 Dampening System provides the perfect balance of freeride vibration and absorption and freestyle liveliness. Slightly setback for powder floatation but centered enough to spin, this is a one man army that excels on harpack, in the park, natural features and all around freeriding.

Product Details

Rocker Type

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

Flex Rating (1 Soft - 10 Stiff)5.5, slightly stiff flex good for high speed freestyle and freeride riding

Shape

Vario Power Grip SidecutMulti-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).

Directional TwinMount it twin or ride it directional. It does it all.

Core

NS Custom Flightcoreis the most technically advanced core system they've ever used. These cores fuse premium hardwood and ultra light softwood laminates together with vertical layers of elastomeric vibration dampers. These lightweight perimeter dampers actually increase vibration absorption the faster you ride while maintaining an incredible amount of snap and liveliness, providing a level of edgehold and high speed performance that only a Never Summer snowboard can deliver.

Laminates

STS Pretensioned FiberglassThe 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 FiberglassBI-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.

Carbon VXR Laminate TechnologyThe CARBON VXR system is specifically designed for the SL, Legacy, Evo, Revolver and Infinity freestyle snowboards. Dual carbon v's help transfer more energy to the tip and tail without making these boards too stiff for buttering and presses. This is the most versatile Carbon system for those that prefer a freestyle feel to their board whether in the park or freeriding the mountain.

RDS 2 Damping SystemThis lightweight system uses three narrower laminated damping layers that provide the perfect combination of vibration absorption and stability. RDS 2 is specifically designed for the SL, Legacy and Infinity.

Sidewalls

Sintered P-Tex SidewallUnlike 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

Base

Durasurf Sintered 4501 BaseCrown Plastics has been the industry leader in sintered materials for over 36 years and has created the DURASURF 4501 sintered base exclusively for Never Summer. This new high density base is extremely fast and will provide unmatched performance and durability.

Edges

Fully Wrapped Metal EdgeProvides unmatched carving ability and edge grip

Topsheet

Matte Topsheet

Additional Features

Elastomeric Underfoot StabilizersElastomeric Rubber Stabilizers directly below the mounting area provide optimum vibration absorption and increase high speed stability while reducing foot fatigue.

Binding Compatibility

Never Summer snowboards offer 2x4 insert patterns.

    Comments about Never Summer Legacy Snowboard 2014:

    I test drove the whole big foot lineup from Never Summer last year and ended up with the Legacy. I have been riding a 2007 Legacy for the past 4 years and decided it was time for an upgrade. I was really set on the Raptor X which is a sick board in powder and at high speeds. However I wasn't a fan towards the end of the day when I started to wear out. I felt like I had to fight the board to turn through variable snow. It was just stiff. If my other Legacy wasn't also a stiff board I probably would have gone with the Raptor. Then I tested the Legacy and felt like it did 95% of what the Raptor did in pow and when bombing it down the groomers. However, it was also playful and had great control through the crud. So I pulled the trigger on the Legacy and have been extremely pleased with my decision. It has been up 5 times this year and I find myself pushing my limits more and more each time. This board inspires confidence in every condition (I don't know about the park). If you want (or can only afford) a quiver of one go with the Legacy if you are a sasquatch like me (6'5" size 14). You will not regret it. Not to mention it is made in the States from the people at Never Summer. They let me demo the Legacy last year at Snowbasin (even though it was a vendor only day). They were totally awesome and because of it they now have a lifetime customer.

      Comments about Never Summer Legacy Snowboard 2014:

      I'm 6'3" 225lb. size 13 foot. Riding the 161 was a gamble since I should've been buying the 163. But I wanted to downsize this board for varied terrain and to explore some freestyle; I usually ride longer boards. Got the 161 & I added some Union Factory Asadachi canted Bindings & this board simply does it all and does it well. Very damp, can hold a mean edge on groomers and jumps feel like im landing into pillows. Haven't hit deep powder yet, but moderate powder was a dream. The Rocker/Camber is the perfect solution for a more playful board on groomers and park. The board feels great bombing down the hill, controlled and precise. It's a good bit more forgiving than my camber boards and maintains great pop and energy. Im sure this board will suite me as I progress through the advanced to expert stages of riding for sure. The more I throw at the Legacy the better it feels. Never Summer nailed it with this design!

                      This is my first board and I haven't got to use it yet, but, out of the box first glances, this is a B.A board. This board will take a poop on any of your friends boards or rental. Its a really solid thick board for all the shreaders and cruisers. Seams like a really stabile board and its design is perfect for east coast.(metal edged, solid, durable)
