Description

The new Never Summer East is a special beast, a race board made for huge carves and a super solid ride. This unique, specialised board features ultra low tip ramps, a high-tech base, extended camber, and a long sidecut that creates insane speed out of nothing and allows you to do long drawn out carves across the entire mountain. Not one for the faint of heart but super rewarding for those who can handle it, the East is a powerful board designed for speed and speed only.

Key Features

Board Type: Race / Carving

Camber: Extended Ripsaw Rocker

Longer transition areas from the rocker to the ends. Less pressure over contact points allows the board to flow instead of pushing against the snow. In a nutshell, it gives you all the response you might want from a traditional camber board while retaining rocker playfulness.

Flex: 10/10 (1=soft, 10=stiff)

As stiff as it gets, this board is made to handle high speeds with maximum stability.

Shape: Directional

The East has a tapered shape that is made to power through in one direction.

Core: NS SuperLight Wood

A combination of durable and lightweight woods create an unmatched strength to weight ratio. The worlds best snowboard fibreglass gives Never Summer boards their superior strength, edge hold and durability. Damping along the edges, underfoot and at the tip and tail provide stability at high speeds, and absorb vibrations.

Bi-Lite Fibreglass

Lightweight and super strong, this fibreglass delivers incredible freestyle and freeride performance without sacrificing durability.

STS Pre-tensioned Fibreglass

Pre-hardened, pre-tensioned laminate that has elastomer stringers - which means that the board has top notch strength, edge hold and performance.

Carbon Max Laminate

More carbon = More power and performance. An advanced top and bottom carbon matrix maximise response and strength where it's needed most, resulting in a lightweight construction that adds torsional stiffness and enhances energy transfer.

RDS 1+ Damping system

The most extensive damping system from Never Summer, with twice the amount of damping material as other models for a silky smooth ride like no other.

Elastomeric Underfoot Stabilisers

Forget about understanding the name of this tech, all you need to know is that these are put under the inserts to provide optimum vibration absorption and increase stability at speed.

Edges: Chairman Power Grip

The Vario Power Grip sidecut utilizes multiple edge contact points, allowing the board to track straight and not catch while still providing maximum edge hold. The Chairman Power Grip features an additional 2 contact points, enhancing the edge hold even further.

Base: Isospeed NHS 7816 Race Grade Base

Leagues above everything else, this base is made of Ultra-High Molecular weight polyethylene has high quality carbon black types, that are modified with special flour and paraffin based additives. Exceptional speed, no one will be able keep up.

Mounting Pattern: 2x4 Inserts

Extra Features:

Co-Extruded Polymer Topsheet - A tough topsheet that is durable, lightweight, and scratch and chip resistant.

Chairman Power Grip Sidecut - The Vario Power Grip sidecut utilizes multiple edge contact points, allowing the board to track straight and not catch while still providing maximum edge hold. The Chairman Power Grip features an additional 2 contact points, enhancing the edge hold even further.

Sintered P-Tex Sidewalls - Unlike conventional ABS sidewalls, sintered P-Tex sidewalls maintain their integrity in colder temperatures and won't crack.

P-Tex Tip/Tail Protection - The P-Tex protection seals and protects the wood core as well as protecting it from vibrations and impacts.

Low Profile Nose and Tail - A lower profile in the tips and tail maximises snow contact for more powerful ollies and nollies and added landing stability. This also reduces the plowing effect in the nose, making you glide smoother and faster and float better in powder.

Harmonic Tip Tail Dampers - Dampers in the tip and tail reduce vibrations and make this board incredibly smooth, stable, and confident at speed and in hard landings, without reducing the liveliness of the board.
