Never Summer created a new directional Rocker/Camber profile specifically for the Raptor that combines a longer front camber and rear shifted rocker which increases carving performance, high speed stability and powder floatation. The Carbonium Damping System eliminates excess vibration, and the lightweight super-durable Carbonium topsheet sets this board apart from all others. Rocker and camber technology adds run, and delivers high speed stability.
Construction and Core
The NS SuperLight Wood Core is designed specifically for the new Carbonium series, this core blends ultra-light wood with durable hardwood for an unmatched strength to weight ratio. More carbon equals more power and performance. The new Carbonium laminate technology combines an advanced top and base carbon matrix to maximize torsional response and strength where it’s needed most. The result is a lightweight yet powerful design that will keep this board going strong for years. The CDS Damping System greatly reduces vibration and provides unmatched high speed stability and control. Thin elastomeric rubber stringers reduce vibration from the metal edge and surrounding laminates. Stringers below the inserts and under the carbon dampen any additional vibration near the bindings, giving this board a smooth riding feel underfoot without sacrificing snap and power throughout the board.
Made in the USA
Crown Plastics has developed an exclusive, super fast, durable sintered base specifically for this board. Just the right amount of graphite has been added making the Durasuft XT Sintered 5501 Base the fastest Never Summer has ever used.
Sidewalls and Edges
Sintered P-tex Sidewall is unlike conventional ABS sidewalls that have a tendency to crack in colder temperatures. Sintered P-tex Sidewalls maintain their integrity at any temperature. STS Pretensioned Fiberglass is the world’s best snowboard fiberglass, period. It is a 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.
