You might be thinking that cobras only live in the desert. Historically, that might have been true, but the Never Summer
Cobra Snowboard will have you re-thinking that. The scientific name for this board is the Shredus gnarlius, and dang, does it live up to that! Directional twin shape with a drawn out nose and blunted tail enhances float and broken snow performance. Vario sidecut and carbonium technology mean killer edge hold and outrageous snap for a responsive, playful feel. If your mission is to get rad everywhere except the park (that's what park boards are for, right?), the Never Summer
Cobra is your mystical mountain steed. Who cares what cowboys say, you'll be riding a freakin' Cobra! Bring the Cobra to your local hill, and see why the Shredus gnarlius has become so famous.
Original Rocker Camber Profile - Never Summer's original Rocker Camber Profile is the best of both worlds. 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. 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. Bottom line: benefits of rocker with the spring, stability, and edge hold of camber.
Flex Rating: 5.5 (1 Soft - 10 Stiff) - Playful flex for all-mountain performance riding. Snappy, responsive without being overly damp.
Vario Power Grip Sidecut - This sidecut profile utilizes multiple radiuses to create extra contact points that enhance edge hold. Flat section in the rocker area allows the board to track straight when unweighted and provides a broad contact point when weighted. Shallow radius sidecut is found next to this section, providing the second and third contact points. Deep radius sidecut at the ends for quick turn initiation and make up the final contact points.
NS SuperLight Wood Core - Taking the Never Summer Flight Core to new heights, this core blends extremely light wood with durable hardwood for an unmatched strength to weight ratio.
P-Tex Tip and Tail Protection
STS Pretensioned Fiberglass - World's best snowboard fiberglass. Pre-hardened, pre-tensioned, layered laminate that has added elastomer stringers between the 0˚ and 90˚ glass fibers the length of the effective edge. Delivers a stronger bond between individual glass laminates, giving Never Summer boards unmatched strength, edge hold, and performance.
Bi-Lite Fiberglass - Ultra-light glass fiber matrix that combines many characteristics of STS fiberglass. Delivers incredible freestyle performance without sacrificing durability.
RDS 2 Dampening System - Lightweight system uses three narrower laminated damping layers that provide the perfect combination of vibration absorption and stability. Balances freeride stability and liveliness.
Elastomeric Underfoot Stabilizers - Elastomeric Rubber Stabilizers directly below the mounting area provide optimum vibraiton absorption and increase high speed stability while reducing foot fatigue.
Carbonium Laminate Technology - 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 the Carbonium Series boards going strong for years.
Sintered P-Tex Sidewall - Incredibly durable sidewalls that maintain their integrity even at super cold temperatures.
Durasurf XT Sintered 5501 Base - Never Summer exclusive, super fast, durable sintered base specifically for the Carbonium Series. Just the right amount of graphite has been added, making this the fastest Never Summer base. EVER.
Die-cut Base - Base color displayed may not be available. Base colors may vary.
Full Wrap Metal Edge - High quality steel protects the entire perimeter of the board in crucial areas of the tip and tail against impact.
Carbonium Topsheet - Incredibly durable, scratch and chip resistant material with a high-tech fiber-like texture. Provides more grip than a gloss topsheet, working as a built-in stomp pad.
