The Never Summer SL Snowboard is the most popular Never Summer board for a reason. Constructed with Carbon VXR Laminate Technology, you'll get more edge response, better control, faster spins. The NS Custom Flightcore offers an incredible amount of snap and liveliness. Many times, trends turn out to be a bad idea: bath salts, Bieber Fever, "Call Me Maybe" and anything having to do with putting shaped rubber bands on your hands. However, the popularity of the Never Summer SL Snowboard is due to its perfect construction and time-tested functionality. Buy into the snowboarding fad that is the SL, and forget the bath salts.
R.C. - The original Rocker & Camber construction blends a custom rocker profile with separate camber areas at each end of the board, providing unmatched power and snap out of turns. This also provides better board tracking for high speed stability and massive ollies.
Flex Rating: 5 (1 Soft - 10 Stiff) - Perfect for all mountain riding
Vario Power Grip - Multi-radius sidecut adds increased edgehold precisely where it's needed most, from 2 inches outside of each binding and inward toward the center of the board, providing added control and response in any conditions (Sidecut Radius numbers are an average).
NS Custom Flightcore - Fused premium hardwood and ultra light softwood laminates together with vertical layers of elastomeric vibration dampers. The dampers increase vibration absorption the faster you ride while maintaining an incredible amount of snap and liveliness, providing a level of edgehold and high speed performance.
Bi-Lite Fiberglass - Combining the strength characteristics of STS ADVANCED fiberglass with an ultra light glass fiber matrix, this delivers incredible freestyle and freeride performance without sacrificing durability.
STS Pre-Tensioned Fiberglass - Pre-hardened, pre-tensioned, layered laminate with added elastomer stringers between the 0 degree and 90 degree glass fibers run the length of the effective edge. This produces a stronger bond between the individual glass laminates, giving the board unmatched strength, edge hold and performance.
Carbon VXR Laminate Technology - Dual carbon V's help transfer more energy to the end of the effective edge at both tip and tail without making the board too stiff for buttering.
RDS 2 Damping System - A lightweight system uses three narrow elastomeric rubber damping layers that provide the perfect combination of vibration absorption and stability.
Sintered P-Tex Sidewall - Unlike conventional ABS sidewalls that have a tendency to crack in colder temperatures, the Sintered P-Tex Sidewall maintains it's integrity at any temperature.
Durasurf Sintered 4501 Base - Crown Plastics has been the industry leader in sintered materials for over 36 years and has created the Durasurf Sintered 4501 Base exclusively for Never Summer. This new high density base is extremely fast and will provide unmatched performance and durability.
Fully Wrapped Metal Edge - Provides unmatched carving ability and edge grip
