Product Info

Just as the Western Expansion led to the discovery of an entirely new frontier, so too does the Never Summer West Snowboard open up your discovery of new ways to get down the mountain. Thanks to a dynamic camber dominant profile, a moderate flex, and directional sidecut, the West is equally at home ripping quick turns, slashing power, or catching air. Discover versatility that's just as expansive as the mountains of the Wild West with the Never Summer West Snowboard.

Product Details

Rocker Type

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

Shape

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.

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 adds 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

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.

Laminates

Carbon VXR Laminate TechnologyCarbon VXR extends carbon fiber V's out from the inserts to the effective edge for quick response while stiffening the board torsionally. Additionally, V's are positioned to the ends of the board providing maximum boost and pop when loaded up. This is an ideal layup to transfer energy to the end of the effective edge, tip/tail and still give the board a softer more forgiving mid-flex for torsional 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 2 Damping SystemThis lightweight system uses three narrower laminated damping layers that provide the perfect combination of vibration, absorption, and stability. RDS 2 is the perfect balance of freeride stability and freestyle liveliness.

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

Sidewalls

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.

Base

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.

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

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.
