With Carbon V-Twin Laminate Technology and RDS1 Damping System to increase edgehold and vibration absorption in any snow condition, the 2014 Never Summer Premier F1 Snowboard takes freeride technology to a whole new level. It has a multi-flex pattern giving the Premier a powerful tail flex and a more responsive mid flex for unmatched carving ability, powder floatation, and effortless turn initiation.
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) 7, a stiff flex for hard charging
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).
Multi-flex Profiled Flightcore Modified NS Custom Flightcore
Carbon V-Twin Laminate Technology The Premiere F1 benefits most from the CARBON V-TWIN laminate system which extends the carbon "V"s from the bindings to the ends of the effective edge increasing power and edge response. An additional carbon V is added to the tail to increase edge hold and power out of turns.
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.
RDS 1 Damping System This NS's most extensive damping system specifically designed for the Premier F1. Three full perimeter layers of elastomeric rubber foil are laminated between the metal edge, fiberglass and wood core. This provides unmatched stability and a smooth ride feel especially at high speeds.
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 Sintered 4501 Base Crown 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.
Fully Wrapped Metal Edge Provides unmatched carving ability and edge grip
Elastomeric Underfoot Stabilizers Elastomeric Rubber Stabilizers directly below the mounting area provide optimum vibration absorption and increase high speed stability while reducing foot fatigue.
Never Summer snowboards offer 2x4 insert patterns.
