Product Info

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.

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)7, a stiff flex for hard charging

Shape

Directional ShapeMade for freeriding, this directional shape will make your board slice through anything and increase floatation.

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).

Core

Multi-flex Profiled FlightcoreModified NS Custom Flightcore

Laminates

Carbon V-Twin Laminate TechnologyThe 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 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.

RDS 1 Damping SystemThis 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.

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

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 Premier F1 Snowboard 2014:

(FYI, this review is based on one full day of riding in powder conditions, with Burton CO2 bindings and Salomon Malamute boots.)

If you consider yourself a freerider, you have to check out this board - it's fantastic. Here are my thoughts:

*Speed: It's ridiculously fast - seriously. All day, I was speeding through flats when other boarders were having to unstrap.

*Stability: Excellent. Even when the powder got all tracked out and chunky, I could almost ride as though the crud wasn't there! Super damp, too, so you can ride at high speeds without having to worry about getting thrown around by small bumps.

Carving: Superb. So fun. Without question, it moves from edge to edge faster (and more effortlessly) than any other board I've ever ridden. It is stiff enough to lay down some hard turns on steeps - and the edge grip is great - but you never feel like you're struggling against the board.

Powder: Good, not great. Not quite as effortless as a dedicated powder board, but still allows you to float easily without too much back-leg burn. If you're rich, though, you still might want a powder specific board for days when it is seriously dumping.

Pop/Jumping/Park: I didn't hit any serious jumps, and I never hit the park, but the board feels lively, so I can imagine it'd do fine as far as pop goes. The stance setback and slightly directional shape might make the park a little... interesting.

Only negative is that the top graphics seem to get scratched up somewhat easily, but that's no big deal.

Any freerider who enjoys bombing groomers, hitting every last powder stash and venturing off-piste when conditions are right will love this board. Demo it and you won't be dissapointed.
