If the ideal day involves ripping park lap after park lap, pushing out the backleg on your front boards, and working on those terrifying switch backside spins, you'll need a deck primed and ready for terrain park progression like the Never Summer Onyx Snowboard. With a soft flex, the NS Original Rocker/Camber Outline, and a handy dampening system, the Onyx comes equipped for season after season of park riding.
Original Rocker Camber Never 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.
Extended Transition Area A small flat section in the snowboard profile that improves both turn initiation and powder flotation.
Vario Power Grip Sidecut Vario Power Grip Sidecut utilizes multiple radiuses creating extra contact points to enhance edge hold. A flat section in the rocker area provides a broad contact point when flexed, however when unbent allows the board to track straight and not catch. Flanking this straight section are two shallow radius which provide the second and third contact points. Towards the ends of the sidecut are deep radius which render quick turn initiation and the final contact points.
Low Profile Tip and Tail 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. 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.
Press Flex Core This core features 2 specific softer flex points between the feet creating better hinge points for ultimate pressing and ollie performance.
Bi-Lite Fiberglass Bi-Lite 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.
FDS Damping System FDS utilizes thinner rubber foil for a lighter, snappier feel. All this, while still providing stability not generally found in a freestyle, pipe/park board.
Harmonic Tip/Tail Damper Harmonic 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.
Elastomeric Underfoot Stabilizers Elastomeric Rubber Stabilizers directly below the mounting area provide optimum vibration absorption and increase high-speed stability while reducing foot fatique.
Sintered P-Tex Sidewalls Never Summer 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.
