Product Info

The Never Summer Proto HDX Snowboard is a special deck in the NS lineup, an avenue for NS to unveil their latest and greatest. Oriented towards unrestricted, all-mountain riding, the Proto HDX is a balanced ride with Harmonic Dampers and a unique Perforated Rocker Pad for a board that remains chatter-less and smooth when ripping at high speeds. Its medium flex gives ample response to the rider, yet remains playful for jibbing natural terrain. From a relaxing day of chairlift lapping to throwing down everything and seeing what sticks, the Never Summer Proto HDX Snowboard is going to crank up the fun.

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

Mid Flex

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

NS SuperLight Wood CoreUsing a sustainable genetically modified Poplar wood fused with a durable Birch hardwood, NS has created the lightest weight yet durable core on the market. The NS SuperLight Wood Core is CNC sanded in their custom wood working facility to a fraction of a millimeter. A tailored flex is perfected, giving their snowboards unequaled performance.

Laminates

Carbon Max Laminate TechnologyThe Carbon Max Laminate Technology combines an advanced top and base carbon matrix to maximize response and strength where you need it the most. The result is a lightweight yet powerful configuration that provides torsional rigidity and energy transfer without sacrificing control.

STS Pre-tensioned FiberglassThe world's best snowboard fiberglass, period. STS Pre-tensioned Fiberglass is an advanced pre-hardened, pre-tensioned, layered laminate that has added elastomer stringers between the 0 degree and 90 degree glass fibers. This produces a stronger bond between the individual glass laminates for unmatched strength, edge hold and performance.

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.

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 the perfect balance of freeride stability and freestyle liveliness.

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.

Perforated Rocker PadPerforated to reduce weight, these thin elastomeric Perforated Rocker Pads are strategically located in the mid-section of the board. This absorbs the vibration between the feet and provides a buffer in the rocker area, which is in continuous contact with the snow.

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 XT Sintered 5501 BaseThe new sintered snowboard base made by Crown Plastics. An addition of graphite has been added to make the Durasurf XT Sintered 5501 Base super-fast and wax absorbent.

Die-Cut BaseBase color displayed may not be available. Base colors may vary.

Topsheet

Carbonium TopsheetThe Carbonium topsheet is a very durable, scratch and chip resistant material with a high tech carbon fiber like texture. Carbonium topsheet also provides more grip than other topsheet materials, working as a built in stomp pad.

      First day with this board it was a powder day! Excellent in powder and so much fun!! Takes no effort to float on top. Second time was a normal soft packed snow day. Excellent control and is forgiving if you make mistakes. The top sheet is nice because the snow doesn't stick as much like a regular board. You get what you pay for sure ! Glad I went never summer. Most people don't even know who they are... Top Notch quality! Just get one you will probably won't go with another brand again. I've had a never summer before toughest boards in the biz.

      Comments about Never Summer Proto HDX Snowboard 2016:

      I had the Proto CTX prior and fell in love with it immediately. Never Summer makes the best boards in my opinion. I like to mix up a lot park, powder and freestyle riding. The Proto HDX has just the right amount of flex, super stable at high speeds and transitions into turns seamlessly. I don't think I could of found another board on the market that would of made me happier.
