Description

The 2021 Never Summer Shaper Twin is the mutant snowboard of the Never Summer line, boasting a unique shape and tech that make it dominate all aspects of snowboarding. Featuring a twin shape for balanced performance in both directions but a tapered tail and directional camber profile for super strong edge hold, explosive pop, and exceptional float, the Shaper Twin is one board where you don't need to check the conditions, just grab it and rip! This season Never Summer have given the Shaper Twin Blower Inserts for even better performance in deep powder.

Key Features

Board Type: All Mountain

Camber: Fusion Rocker Camber

Fusion Rocker Camber is a special directional camber profile that puts catch-free and playful rocker between your feet, stable camber just outside the inserts, and a long rising transition area from your front foot to the nose. This retains stability and power in your back foot while lifting your nose for effortless float and glide. 

Flex: 6/10 Mid-Stiff (1=soft, 10=stiff)

A mid flex that is stable at speed and can handle rough and fast riding over inconsistent terrain.

Shape: Tapered Twin

This board has identical nose and tail lengths with 10mm of taper in the tail.

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 Technology

A lightweight but powerful mix of carbon laminates give the board torsional strength without sacrificing the control you need.

RDS 2 Damping

This lightweight damping system utilises three narrow layers that provide an ideal combination of vibration absorption and stability. This system bridges the gap between freestyle and freeride damping.

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 XT Sintered 5501

Developed exclusively for Never Summers higher end boards, this base is super fast, super durable, and has added carbon to make it the fastest base in the range.  

Mounting Pattern: 2x4 Inserts + Blower 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.

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

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

Blower Stance Inserts - This board features extra inserts that are setback further towards the tail, allowing you to set your stance way back to give you better float on powder days.
