Product Info

Even with over 34 years of snowboard shaping under his belt, the Never Summer Maverix Snowboard is one of Tim Canaday's most prized and innovative creations. The Maverix design presents riders with a unique decision: size 10 cm up or 10 cm down from your standard board length. Want a super nimble, wide, shorty with amazing edge hold and versatility? Size down! Want a smooth sailing and cushy ride that'll float like a boat and rail huge arcing carves with complete stability? Size up! Regardless, we're confident that you'll love this board and its wider than average waist width. Make sure you're prepared to ride the wave when the winter cycle hits and get your paws on the Never Summer Maverix.

Product Details

Rocker Type

Fusion Rocker CamberNever Summer put the edge gripping hold, the snap out of turns, and the huge pop of Ripsaw RC in the back and combined it with the float and surfy feel of Original RC in the front. Fusion is here to bring the fun and fluidity that will make snowboarding dynamic again.

Extended Transition AreaA small flat section in the snowboard profile that improves both turn initiation and powder flotation.

Vario Power Grip SidecutVario 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 radii which provide the second and third contact points. Towards the ends of the sidecut are deep radius which renders quick turn initiation and the final contact points.


NS SuperLight Wood CoreUsing a sustainable genetically modified Poplar wood fused with a durable Birch hardwood, NS has created the lightest weight yet durable core on the market. The NS SuperLight Wood Core is CNC sanded in their custom wood working facility to a fraction of a millimeter. A tailored flex is perfected, giving their snowboards unequaled performance.


Carbon Max Laminate TechnologyCarbon Max Laminate Technology combines an advanced top and base carbon matrix to maximize response and strength where you need it the most. The result is a lightweight yet powerful configuration that provides torsional rigidity and energy transfer without sacrificing control.

STS Pre-Tensioned FiberglassThe world's best snowboard fiberglass. Never Summer's STS advanced fiberglass is a pre-hardened, pretensioned layered laminate that has added elastomer stringers between the 0 degree and 90 degree glass fibers. This produces a stronger bond between the individual glass laminates giving snowboards unmatched strength, edge hold, and performance.

Bi-Lite FiberglassBi-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.

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.

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


Sintered P-Tex SidewallNever 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.


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


Matte Topsheet

Premium TopsheetThe Premium Topsheet is a very 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. These premium topsheet materials include Never Summer's Carbonium Topsheet, Matte Topsheet and TruGrit Topsheet.

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.
