Everyone knows a Swiss-army knife can accomplish any task you put in front of it. The Never Summer Proto CTX Wide Snowboard is the same way. With Carbonium Laminate Technology you're sure to have all the pop you need, while the Vario Power Grip gives you superb edge hold on the hardest of snow. If you want to be a true mountain master this year, check out the Never Summer Proto CTX Wide.
Rocker Type
R.C. - The original Rocker & Camber construction blends a custom rocker profile with separate camber areas at each end of the board, providing unmatched power and snap out of turns. This also provides better board tracking for high speed stability and massive ollies.
Bi-Directional Rocker/Camber Profile - This is designed to perform well riding switch while not inhibiting forward performance. This is accomplished by extending the camber slightly in the tip, increasing pressure over this area. To compensate for this additional pressure, the rocker has been shifted slightly toward the tail adding pop and a more forgiving ride.
Flex
Flex Rating: 5 (1 Soft - 10 Stiff) - Perfect for all mountain riding
Sidecut
Vario Power Grip - 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).
Core
NS Superlight Wood Core - A blend of extremely light wood with durable hardwood for unmatched strength to weight ratio
Laminates
Carbonium Laminate Technology - More carbon equals more power and performance. Combining an advanced top and base carbon matrix to maximize torsional response and strength where it's needed most results in a lightweight yet powerful design.
Bi-Lite Fiberglass - Combining the strength characteristics of STS ADVANCED fiberglass with an ultra light glass fiber matrix, this delivers incredible freestyle and freeride performance without sacrificing durability.
EDS Damping System - Delivering increased edgehold and high speed stability without compromising freestyle performance.
STS Pre-Tensioned Fiberglass - Pre-hardened, pre-tensioned, layered laminate with added elastomer stringers between the 0 degree and 90 degree glass fibers run the length of the effective edge. This produces a stronger bond between the individual glass laminates, giving the board unmatched strength, edge hold and performance.
Sidewalls
Sintered P-Tex Sidewall - Unlike conventional ABS sidewalls that have a tendency to crack in colder temperatures, the Sintered P-Tex Sidewall maintains it's integrity at any temperature.
Base
Durasurf XT Sintered 5501 Base - Crown Plastics has developed an exclusive, super fast, durable sintered base with just the right amount of graphite to form the fastest base Never Summer has ever used.
Edges
Fully Wrapped Metal Edge - Provides unmatched carving ability and edge grip
Topsheet
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.
Binding Compatibility
Never Summer snowboards offer 2x4 insert patterns.

Specs

  • Terrain: All-Mountain, Freestyle
    All-Mountain
    All-mountain snowboards are designed for exploring the whole mountain. They are your go-to for a snowboard that will do anything. They feel at home on groomers, powder, park runs and almost anything in between. The vast majority of snowboarders choose all-mountain boards for their great versatility. If you’re just getting started or unsure of exactly what you need, an all-mountain snowboard is a great choice.
    Freestyle
    Freestyle or park snowboards tend to be a bit shorter in length and love terrain parks, rails, jibs, trash cans, tree trunks, riding switch (non-dominant foot forward), wall rides and more. Freestyle boards often feature a true twin shape, and are typically selected by those looking to ride the terrain park. A more versatile variant of a freestyle board is the all-mountain freestyle, which combines the versatility of an all mountain snowboard with the playfulness of a freestyle snowboard.
  • Ability Level: Intermediate-Advanced
    Intermediate-Advanced
    The majority of skiers/snowboarders fall into this level, whether you like to carve on groomers or venture into the powder. These skis/snowboards may be somewhat wider than beginner-intermediate skis, usually with a stronger wood core and sandwich sidewall construction. Depending on the type of ski, intermediate-advanced level skis may have full camber, rocker, or some combination of the two.
  • Rocker Type: Camber/Rocker/Camber
    Camber/Rocker/Camber
    Camber/Rocker/Camber is a profile that’s specific to snowboards and which works because the rider’s weight flattens the two cambered areas. This design produces a strong, pressured carving zone between the rider’s feet and retains pop and carving precision at the tip and tail.
  • Flex Rating: Stiff
    Stiff
    The amount a snowboard flexes varies significantly between boards. Snowboard flex ratings are not necessarily standardized across manufacturers, so the flex may vary from brand to brand. Many manufacturers will give a number rating ranging from 1-10, 1 being softest and 10 being stiffest. Here at evo we have standardized the manufacturers' number ratings to a feel rating ranging from soft to very stiff. Generally you will find flex ratings of 1-2 as soft, 3-5 as medium, 6-8 as stiff, and 9-10 as very stiff. Flex ratings and feel may ultimately vary from snowboard to snowboard.
