Product Info

The 2014 Never Summer Raven Snowboard is the most tech, highest performance women's all mountain snowboard NS has made to date. Their NS Superlight Wood Core and Carbonium Laminate Technology have been engineered specifically for women who want a softer mid flex for torsional control but power underfoot for unmatched carve-ability. The Raven's shape features a more drawn out nose and quick tail allowing the board to plane over soft new snow in addition to blunt ends for superior maneuverability. Combine that with the NS exclusive Women's Carbonium Dampening System (WCDS) and you've got one of the smoothest, most stable rides on the market that will have you hollering 'Nevermore.'

Product Details

Rocker Type

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

Flex Rating (1 Soft - 10 Stiff)4, perfect mid flex

Shape

Directional TwinMount it twin or ride it directional. It does it all.

Vario Power Grip SidecutMulti-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).

Core

NS Superlight Wood CoreTaking their custom flight core even further, they've designed the SUPERLIGHT WOOD CORE specifically for the new Carbonium series which blends extremely light wood with durable hardwood for unmatched strength to weight ratio.

Laminates

Women's Carbonium Laminate Technology (WCLT)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 sacraficing the torsional control a lighter rider needs. Additional fiberglass strips reinforce the effective edge for hold and durability.

Bi-Lite FiberglassBI-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.

Sidewalls

Sintered P-Tex SidewallUnlike 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

Women's Carbonium Dampening System (WCDS)The WCDS is tailored for a female rider. Three elastomeric rubber foils around the perimeter of the board provide an optimum balance of high-speed stability and vibration absorption while maintaining and agile feel.

Base

Durasurf XT Sintered 5501 BaseCrown Plastics has developed an exclusive, super fast, durable sintered base specifically for the Carbonium Series. Just the right amount of graphite has been added making it the fastest base NS has ever used.

Edges

Fully Wrapped Metal EdgeProvides unmatched carving ability and edge grip

Topsheet

Carbonium TopsheetA very durable, scratch and chip resistant material with a high tech carbon fiber like visual. This textured material also provides more grip than a gloss topsheet working as a built in stomp pad.

Additional Features

Elastomeric Underfoot StabilizersElastomeric Rubber Stabilizers directly below the mounting area provide optimum vibration absorption and increase high speed stability while reducing foot fatigue.

Binding Compatibility

Never Summer snowboards offer 2x4 insert patterns.
