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.
Rocker Type
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
Flex Rating: 5.5 (1 Soft - 10 Stiff) - Playful flex for all-mountain performance riding. Snappy, responsive without being overly damp.
Shape
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.
Core
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
Laminates
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.
Sidewalls
Sintered P-Tex Sidewall - Incredibly durable sidewalls that maintain their integrity even at super cold temperatures.
Base
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.
Edges
Full Wrap Metal Edge
Topsheet
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.

Specs

  • Terrain: All-Mountain, Freeride, Powder
    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.
    Freeride
    Freeride snowboards are designed for the rider that spends most of the day off groomed runs and in backcountry terrain. They typically have a stiffer flex and are ridden in longer sizes than freestyle snowboards. Freeride snowboards often feature a directional shape that is designed to perform optimally in one direction.
    Powder
    Powder snowboards love powder. Often associated with freeride snowboards, powder boards sometimes feature a wider nose and a tapered narrower tail. The binding inserts, which determine the rider's stance, are often set back on a powder snowboard to help the rider float the tip of the board through the deep stuff. Powder snowboards sometimes also feature rocker, a design element where the tip (and tail) rise starts farther back on the board, which also helps the rider maintain tip float through the pow.
  • 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.
  • Shape: Directional Twin
  • Flex Rating: Medium
    Medium
    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.
