Product Info

Every ripper starts out as a kid on a tiny snowboard making falling leaf turns down the bunny hill. But if your kid starts out on the Never Summer Bantam Snowboard, the falling leaf stage won't last long. Built to make progression simple, provide high performance, and be plenty durable to keep on ripping with junior after they've moved on from the basics, the Bantam is the perfect tool for instilling a love of sliding sideways into the hearts of the youth.

Product Details

Rocker Type

Original Rocker CamberThis profile is shaped for a surfy and playful feel while maintaining superior performance and versatility.

Flex

Flex Rating: 3 (1 Soft - 10 Stiff)

Dampness Rating: 3 (1 Lively - 10 Damp)

Shape

Vario Power Grip SidecutVario Power Grip Sidecut utilizes multiple radii creating extra contact points to enhance edge hold. A flat section in the rocker area provides a broad contact point when flexed, but allows the board to track straight and not catch when unbent. Flanking this straight section are two shallow radii, which provide the second and third contact points. Towards the ends of the sidecut are deep radii which render quick turn initiation and the final contact points

Low Profile Tip/TailA low profile in the nose and tail of the snowboard maximizes material contact with the snow for more powerful ollie/nollie pop and 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.

Core

Press Flex CoreThis core design features 2 specific softer flex points between the feet creating better hinge points for ultimate pressing and ollie performance. The press flex wood core is the perfect foundation for freestyle performance.

Laminates

Bi-Lite FiberglassBi-Lite Fiberglass combines many of the strength characteristics of Never Summer's STS fiberglass with an ultralight glass fiber matrix. This delivers incredible freestyle and freeride performance without sacrificing durability.

FDS Damping SystemSpecifically designed for some freestyle models, FDS utilizes thinner rubber foil for a lighter, snappier feel while still providing the legendary NS smooth ride.

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

Sidewalls

Sintered P-Tex SidewallsNever 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.

Base

Durasurf Sintered 4501 BaseCrown Plastics has been the industry leader in sintered materials for over 36 years and has created the Durasurf 4501 sintered base exclusively for Never Summer. This high-density base is extremely fast and will provide unmatched performance and durability.

Additional Features

P-Tex Tip/Tail ProtectionBoards with P-Tex Tip/Tail Protection have UHMW plastic, or P-Tex which is a softer molecular material that not only seals and protects the wood core, but also absorbs vibration and impact.
