Description

The 2018 Never Summer West is a different kind of animal. It quickly became one of the most popular models, with its combination of features that make it aggressive, but still agile. The Ripsaw Rocker Camber profile has more exaggerated camber sections, which give the West extra edge hold, stability and pop, but still keep it versatile with the rocker between your feet. If you want a fast ride, that can take you from quick turns, to pow slashes, to jumps, strap yourself into the West.


Key Features

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. 

Flex: 5/10 Medium (1=soft, 10=stiff)

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

Shape: Directional Twin

Ride regular, switch or upside down and you are in for a good time. This board has a set back stance, meaning it will power forwards, but can also be ridden switch with confidence.

Core: NS Superlight Wood

Like the flight core but even lighter! A combination of durable and lightweight woods create an unmatched strength to weight ratio. The worlds best snowboard fiberglass gives Never Summer boards their superior strength, edge hold and durability. Dampening along the edges, underfoot and at the tip and tail provide stability at high speeds, and absorb vibrations. 

Edges: Vario Power Grip

Vario Power Grip side cut utilizes multiple edge contact points, allowing the board to track straight when required, while still providing maximum edge hold.

Top Sheet: Carbonium Topsheet

An incredibly durable and scratch proof top sheet, which provides better grip than a gloss topsheet. Its basically like a giant stomp pad!

Base: Sintered

Unmatched durability and speed. A top of the line snowboard base for riders at the top of their game.
