Never Summer SL Snowboard [2011]

Never Summer SL  Snowboard


The comfort food of snowboards. No matter where you are, this board just feels right. The Never Summer SL. I'll have an order of freeriding, a dash of powder and a side of park please. Make it to go, while I cruise down this double black. Only the best ingredients are used to make this snowboard platter: R.C. Tech, Vario Power Grip, Carbon VXR, and a Durasurf Sintered base. Preservatives like sintered P-tex sidewalls and STS Fiberglass will ensure this board has a long shelf life. If you can't decide what you like, be prepared for any urge.. This hearty entree will keep you coming back for more.

Never Summer says: This all terrain, all condition ride is our most popular and versatile model. For 2010/11 we have modified our Custom Flight Core to reduce weight and increase pop. We’ve also added the Carbon VXR Laminate Technology to the Flight Core giving the SL powerful edge response and control. The lightweight RDS 2 Damping System provides the perfect balance of freeride vibration absorption and freestyle liveliness. Slightly setback for powder floatation but centered enough for spinning and carving, this one board quiver excels on hardpack, in the park, natural features and all around freeriding. Handcrafted in Denver, Colorado, the SL has once again set the standard for all mountain freestyle performance, versatility and durability.

Please Note:

- Snowboard base graphics may vary.

- We are a small store and don't ship from a warehouse.  Many of our snowboards are display models and may show minor cosmetic wear from being handled by customers.  This could include small scratches or scuffs on the topsheet or evidence of fingerprints.  We will always contact you if there is damage that is more than cosmetic such as any damage to the base or edges.  Please contact us if you have a question about the condition of a particular board.  Thank you for supporting core shops!

  • R.C. Technology: Rocker and camber combined for the best of both! Rocker between the bindings provides a playful feel and plentiful float in the pow, with camber in the nose and tail for huge ollie power and incredible stability in all conditions.
  • Vario Power Grip: Always equipped with R.C. Tech, this enhanced sidecut has 3 different radii blended to offer 5 subtle contact points. This gives you maximum grip and precision with minimal drag.
  • RDS 2 Damping System: Narrower rubber foils than RDS 1 for a smooth, damp ride with less weight.
  • Carbon VXR Laminate Tech: Short Carbon V’s running out from the bindings make turns quicker without making the board too stiff and a smaller V’s add mad pop.
  • Durasurf Sintered 4501 Base: A very hard,high quality, sintered base for the most speed and durability possible.

5 of 5 stars

The SL kills it all over. You can take it in the park, or rally big mountain terrain like the Bird. Unlike other "do it all" boards, the SL rides very smooth with all the rubber packed into it. It is one of the most durable boards I've ridden. The carbon built into this board gives it a ton of pop. I have enjoyed boosting into pillow lines with the Rocker Camber combo the SL has. I recommend this board if you want to buy only one board.
