The 2014 Never Summer Revolver 4.0 Snowboard (the mid-wide version of the Evo) is the fourth generation of the Revolver lineage. It features a new Low Profile Tip and Tail reducing drag and enabling a rider to carry speed into the next feature. It also features a Press Flex Core, which allows riders to easily manipulate the board for buttery goodness. The blunted true twin minimizes materials for less swing weight in the air while extending the effective edge for more stability when landing or taking off. The EDS Dampening system combined with the Harmonic Damper in the tip and tail reduces vibration while making the cambered areas crisper and snappier.
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) 4, perfect mid flex
Twin Shape A symmetrical shape for equally precise performance riding regular or switch.
Low Profile Tip / Tail (LPT) A 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. LPT also reduces the plowing effect in the nose for better glide to the next feature and superior float when it's deep.
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).
Press Flex Core This rocker core design is perfect for the Evo, Revolver and Onyx models. It features 2 specific softer flex points between the feet creating better hinge points for ultimate pressing and ollie performance.
Carbon VXR Laminate Technology The CARBON VXR system is specifically designed for the SL, Legacy, Evo, Revolver and Infinity freestyle snowboards. Dual carbon v's help transfer more energy to the tip and tail without making these boards too stiff for buttering and presses. This is the most versatile Carbon system for those that prefer a freestyle feel to their board whether in the park or freeriding the mountain.
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.
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.
Evo Damping System (EDS) The EDS utilizes thinner elastomeric rubber foil in the effective edge for a lighter, snappy feel. More extensive rubber in the tip / tail provides stability and vibration absorption not generally found in an ultralight park board.
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.
Harmonic Tip / Tail Dampeners Harmonic dampeners in the tip and tail take out a large percentage of residual vibration by quieting the nose and tail. This enhances stability at speed, in variable snow conditions and on hard landings without deadening the liveliness and pop of the cambered areas.
Never Summer snowboards offer 2x4 insert patterns.

Comments about Never Summer Revolver 4.0 Snowboard 2014:
I just switched to this board and absolutely love it! The wide board gives great edge hold. Swing weight is very light. It has super sick graphics and is super tough. The base is solid and the matt top sheet is super strong. It does not chip. Riding switch in this board is also EXTREAMLY easy compared to some other boards.
