An Extended Ripsaw Rocker Camber makes this board perfect for all-mountain riding with a lean towards freeriding goodness, consider the Chairman the head honcho for making the most out of massive runs.

Product Details

Rocker Type

Extended Ripsaw Rocker CamberFeatures enhanced cambered areas for aggressive edge hold and tremendous pop while maintaining the versatility of Original Rocker Camber.

Extended Transition AreaNever Summer adds a small flat section in the snowboard profile that improves both turn initiation and powder flotation.

Shape

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.

Power Grip SidecutPower Grip Sidecut with Rocker Camber is the science of snowboarding perfected. Power Grip Sidecut utilizes multiple radiii creating extra contact points to enhance edge hold.

Core

NS Superlight Wood CoreNever Summer uses a custom blend of wood species that was created to be the lightest weight yet durable core on the market. The NS Superlight Wood Core is CNC sanded in the custom wood working facility to a fraction of a millimeter. A tailored flex is perfected, giving their snowboards unequaled performance.

Laminates

Carbon Max Laminate TechnologyMore carbon equals more power and performance. The Carbon Max Laminate Technology combines an advanced top and bottom carbon matrix to maximize response and strength where it's needed most. The result is a lightweight yet powerful configuration that provides torsional rigidity and energy transfer without sacrificing the control a rider needs.

STS Pretensioned FiberglassThe world's best snowboard fiberglass, period. This advanced pre-hardened, pre-tensioned, layered laminate has added elastomer stringers between the 0 degree and 90 degree glass fibers (the length of the effective edge). This produces a stronger bond between the individual glass laminates giving our snowboards unmatched strength, edge hold and performance.

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.

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

RDS 1 Damping SystemThe laminated damping layers on the RDS 1 are more extensive along the full length of the effective edge, and less extensive in the tip and tail, giving the board high-speed stability with reduced tip and tail swing weight.

Harmonic Tip/Tail DamperHarmonic 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.

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 XT Sintered 5501 BaseCrown Plastics has developed an exclusive, super fast, durable sintered base specifically for higher end boards. Just the right amount of graphite has been added making the Durasurf XT Sintered 5501 Base the fastest Never Summer has ever used.

Topsheet

Premium Coextruded Polymer TopsheetThe Premium Topsheet is a durable, lightweight, scratch and chip resistant fiber backed thermoplastic. The premium topsheets also provide more grip than other topsheet materials, working as a built-in stomp pad.

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.
