The 2021 Never Summer Proto Slinger is the perfect fusion of two of Never Summers most popular mens models, the Proto Type Two and the Funslinger. Bridging the gap between a soft park board and a responsive all mountain board, the Proto Slinger features a soft flex with a camber-dominant hybrid camber profile, giving you easy presses along with explosive pop and all-mountain stability. Think of the Proto Slinger as the perfect board for the creative freestyle rider that wants to jib the entire mountain.

Key Features

Board Type: Freestyle

Camber: Shock Wave Rocker Camber

Shock Wave Rocker Camber features extended camber zones underfoot towards the tip and tail for explosive pop and solid stability, with smaller rocker areas that retain quick turn initiation and enhance floatation. 

Flex: 4/10 Stiff (1=soft, 10=stiff)

Shape: Asymmetrical Twin

A true twin shape with an asymmetrical sidecut, this board will ride the same switch and regular, but has a designated toe and heel edge, which means you'll get more power and control in your turns without even noticing. Our bodies aren't the same front to back, so why should our snowboards be?

Core: Press Flex Core

The Press Flex Core features 2 specific softer flex points between the feet, providing an easier hinge point and more powerful ollies.

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 VXR Laminate Technology

Carbon 'V' shapes that extend out from your inserts to the edges of the board, adding torsional strength to the board and giving the board extra energy when loaded up to pop.

FDS Damping System

This damping system utilises thinner rubber foil for a lighter, snappier feel while still providing a smooth ride.

Elastomeric Underfoot Stabilisers

These stabilisers are placed directly below the mounting area to provide optimum vibration absorption and increase high speed stability while reducing foot fatigue.

Base: Durasurf Sintered 4501

This Never Summer exclusive high-density base is extremely fast and provides unmatched performance and durability.

Mounting Pattern: 2x4 Inserts

Extra Features:

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

Vario 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. 

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

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 Nose/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.

Extended Transition Area - This board has extended flat sections at the contact points which improves turn initiation and powder floatation.
