- 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!
|Recommended Use:||Freestyle, All-Mountain, Freeride|
Carbonium Topsheet: A 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.
Carbonium Laminate Technology: More carbon equals more power and performance. The new Carbonium Laminate Technology combines an advanced top and base carbon matrix to maximize torsional response and strength where it’s needed most. The result is a lightweight yet powerful design that will keep the Carbonium Series boards going strong for years.
Extended Transition Rocker Camber Profile: Longer transition area extending from the end of camber and into the low profile tip/tail enhancing the inherent characteristics of Never Summer’s Original Rocker/Camber Profile. This is captured by the extended transition areas decreasing pressure over the ends of the effective edge, allowing the board to flow instead of pushing against the snow. This creates more fluid edge transfer, increases glide and powder floatation in flat areas of the board. EXRC improves edge hold when the camber is engaged yet is more forgiving and less likely to catch that edge when in neutral position.
Vario Power Grip Sidecut: The Vario Power Grip sidecut works perfectly with the Rocker Camber Profile by adding increased edgehold precisely where it’s needed most; from 2 inches outside of each binding, inward towards the center of the board providing added control and response in any condition.
Low Profile Tip/Tail: A 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. LPT also reduces the plowing effect in the nose for better glide to the next feature and superior fl oat when it’s deep.
STS Pretensioned Fiberglass: The world’s best snowboard fiberglass, period. STS Advanced Fiberglass is a pre-hardened, pre-tensioned, layered laminate that 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 Never Summer snowboards unmatched strength, edge hold and performance.
Bi-Lite Fiberglass: Bi-Lite fiberglass 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.
NS SuperLight Wood Core: This core blends extremely light wood with durable hardwood for unmatched strength to weight ratio.
Harmonic Tip/Tail Damper HDT: Harmonic dampers in tip and tail take out a large percentage of residual vibration by quieting the nose and tail. This enhances stability at speed, in variable snow conditions and on hard landings without deadening the liveliness and pop of the cambered areas.
CDS Dampening System: The CDS greatly reduces vibration and provides unmatched high speed stability and control. Thin elastomeric rubber stringers reduce vibration from the metal edge and surrounding laminates. Stringers below the inserts and under the carbon dampen any additional vibration near the bindings, giving the Carbonium Series boards a smooth riding feel underfoot without sacrificing snap and power throughout the board.
Elastomeric Underfoot Stabilizers: Elastomeric Rubber Stabilizers directly below the mounting area provide optimum vibration absorption and increase high speed stability while reducing foot fatigue.
Sintered P-Tex Sidewall: Never 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 Base: Crown Plastics has developed an exclusive, super fast, durable sintered base specifically for the Carbonium Series. Just the right amount of graphite has been added making the Durasurf 5501 XT base the fastest Never Summer has ever used.
Full Wrap Metal Edge: A full wrap metal edge means the metal runs continuously around the board, adding impact resistance.
