The 2019 Never Summer Proto Type Two is the popular asymmetrical combination of the Funslinger and the Ripsaw. The asym sidecut means that turning is smooth and effortless, while the medium flex rating is suited to ride anywhere you can take it. The Ripsaw Rocker Camber profile is a more aggressive mix, which gives you crazy edge hold no matter the snow conditions, as well as having loads of pop. If you are the type of rider who wants a board that can ride trees, carve hard, drop cliffs and ride in the park all on the one board, the Proto Type Two is what you want.

Board Type: All Mountain
Camber: Ripsaw Rocker (Moustache Camber)
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. So in a nutshell, it gives you all the response you might want from a traditional camber board while retaining rocker playfulness.

A medium to stiff flexing board for all mountain riding. Enjoy a powerful, stable ride, that can still be playful in the park..
