Product Info

Park Divas everywhere are going to get down with the Never Summer Onyx Snowboard. Scraping through the park is going to be an entirely new experience with the perfectly balanced Original Rocker Camber and soft, playful flex yearning to spin and tweak. The mixture of both rocker and camber gives you all of the rail-sliding benefits of rocker while adding in some camber to prevent you from sliding out on rails or ice. A harmonic tail and tip damper keeps the board smooth and vibration-less for slides and high speeds that feel just as good as they look. A Press Flex wood core gives the Onyx a foundation that reduces weight and can put up with seasons of park-riding abuse. Mount up the Never Summer Onyx Snowboard and you'll be wrecking parks left and right.

Product Details

Rocker Type

Original Rocker CamberNever Summer's Original Rocker Camber profile begins with rocker at the nose and tail. Directly underfoot the bend translates into a traditional camber where it meets a subtle rocker between the bindings. The Original Rocker Camber provides a surfy and playful feel while maintaining superior performance and versatility.

3 Pressure PointsThis snowboard has 3 Pressure Points. Pressure points make your board perform; The Rocker Camber gives you high pressure between the feet. This pivotal point gives your snowboard a playful feel that performs exceptionally in powder and when freeriding. With extra stability, precision and edge hold your turning abilities are enhanced too!

Flex

SoftSoft, forgiving flex tuned for freestyle riding.

Shape

True Twin

Vario Power Grip SidecutThe Vario Power Grip Sidecut enhances edge hold from the multiple radiuses that create contact points. The sidecut features a flat area where the snowboard is rockered for better flex and to prevent edge-catching. Towards the end of the snowboard, the sidecut is deep to render quick turn initiation.

Low Profile Tip/TailA low profile in the nose and tail of the snowboard maximizes material contact with the snow for more powerful ollie/nollie pop and adds stability to your landings. Low Profile Tip/Tail also reduces the plowing effect in the nose for better glide to the next feature and superior float when it's deep.

Core

Press Flex Wood CoreThis rocker core design features 2 specific softer flex points between the feet creating better hinge points for ultimate pressing and ollie performance, making the Press Flex Wood Core the perfect foundation for freestyle performance.

Laminates

Bi-Lite FiberglassBi-Lite fiberglass is strong, durable and made of lightweight glass fibers. This delivers incredible freestyle and freeride performance without sacrificing the snowboards impact resistance.

FDS Damping SystemSpecifically designed for some of their freestyle models, FDS utilizes thinner rubber foil for a lighter, snappier feel while still providing the legendary NS smooth ride.

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

Harmonic Tip/Tail DamperHarmonic dampers in the tip and tail take out a high percentage of residual vibration by quieting the nose and tail. This enhances stability at speed, in variable snow conditions and on board landings without deadening the liveliness and pop of the cambered areas.

Sidewalls

Sintered P-tex SidewallNS was the first snowboard company to use and perfect Sintered P-Tex Sidewalls, and they've never seen one crack. Unlike conventional ABS sidewalls that have a tendency to crack in colder temperatures, Sintered P-Tex sidewalls maintain their integrity at any temperature.

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.

    Comments about Never Summer Onyx Snowboard - Women's 2016:

    I love my Never Summer Onyx! I have tried many different board companies but Never Summer is by far my favorite. Since I got on a Never Summer I have never ridden another brand. They are so much stronger than other boards I have ridden and they last longer. I ride in Tahoe and hit a lot of rocks but I have never had a core shot. My Onyx is so much fun to ride and makes spinning so easy. When I got my Onyx I went from spinning 360's to 540's over night. The flex of the snowboard makes it simple for me to load up and spin. The Rocker Camber makes it easier for me to not catch my edges. This board is fun and flexy yet stable at high speeds. It has been so fun to ride in the park and all over the mountain. For my style of riding I will never go back to a Full Camber board. This board also does amazingly well riding through bumps and choppy terrain. I am 5'2 with a small frame and ride a 140. Hope this helps.

    This board is great for beginners and advanced. It is extremely light-weight and fast. The rocker camber ensures maneuverability. I had previously been using rentals and once I got this board, it was much for easy for me to grasp the concept of how to ride.

    Comments about Never Summer Onyx Snowboard - Women's 2016:

    This is my first Never Summer board and I must say, I AM IN LOVE!! The flex on this board is beyond amazing, it is super poppy and great for park or cruising (fast) down the mountain. It is a much faster board than I am used to, so it definitely took more leg work but I am loving it so far! I went from spinning 3's to 5's, OVERNIGHT. It was awesome. The first day I used it, I had to adjust my bindings a little due to the fact that I went a cm shorter on the size, but lucky for me there happened to be a NS tent at the bottom of Copper mountain that day. I mentioned to the guy helping me out that this board was so much faster than any other board I had ever had or ridden and he said that it's because most other companies use a different base for women's boards than the mens and it slows them down, but NS uses the same base for mens and womens. I really loved that! The design is vibrant and fun and also has a cool matte finish instead of a shiny one like other boards. The tips are a little squared off rather than completely round and I love that too. It makes for a much smoother ride. Overall, beautiful buttery amazing goodness is how I would describe this board. I'll say it again, I'm in love! Definitely would recommend for any chicks out there looking to progress their riding skills and try some new stuff out!
