American made, all-mountain shredding goodness, the Never Summer
Raven Snowboard wants to tear down every part of the mountain. A medium flex rating makes for a playful time in the park but gets down to business and stays afloat in powder and handles groomers with ease. Elastomeric Underfoot Stabilizers are added to take away chatter and to smooth out the ride when your bombing down. It'll stay fresh to death too with a Carbonium Topsheet protecting the board from chips, scratches, and also working as a stomp pad to add comfort. You're ready for anything with the Never Summer
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: 4 (1 Soft - 10 Stiff) - A medium flex for easy turn initiation and forgiving landings.
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.
Bi-Lite Fiberglass - Ultra-light glass fiber matrix that combines many characteristics of STS fiberglass. Delivers incredible freestyle performance without sacrificing durability.
Elastomeric Underfoot Stabilizers - Elastomeric Rubber Stabilizers directly below the mounting area provide optimum vibraiton absorption and increase high speed stability while reducing foot fatigue.
RDS 1 Damping System - The laminated damping layers of the RDS 1 are more extensive the full length of the effective edge, less extensive in the tip and tail. This combines high speed stability with reduced tip and tail swing weight.
Women's Carbonium Laminate Technology - WCLT has been designed specifically for the Carbonium Raven. Narrow Carbon stringers on the top and bottom of the wood core provide power and energy transfer without sacrificing the torsional control a lighter rider needs. Additional fiberglass strips reinforce the effective edge for hold and durability.
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.
