Product Info

The Never Summer Proto Ultra Snowboard was built to provide Chris Corning with the platform to perform on the biggest stage. That should clue you in: this thing is P-O-W-E-R-F-U-L. It's stuffed with a hybrid bamboo wood core and laced with an insane carbon matrix for dialed carving and the kind of pop that'll launch you into low earth orbit if you're not careful. The Proto Ultra is a reservoir of freestyle potential energy, just waiting for you to harness it.

Product Details

Rocker Type

Shock Wave Rocker CamberShock Wave Rocker Camber gives you the shock of explosive power and the fluid feel of riding a wave. SWRC features longer camber areas under the bindings for huge pop and vice like stability with a smaller rocker area in between that retains quick turn initiation and flotation. The hallmarks of the patented Rocker Camber Profile.

Extended Transition AreaNever Summer adds a small flat section in the snowboard profile that improves both turn initiation and powder flotation.

Flex

Flex Rating8 (1 Soft - 10 Stiff)

Dampness Rating6 (1 Lively - 10 Damp)

Shape

Vario Power Grip SidecutVario Power Grip Sidecut utilizes multiple radii creating extra contact points to enhance edge hold. A flat section in the rocker area provides a broad contact point when flexed, but allows the board to track straight and not catch when unbent. Flanking this straight section are two shallow radii, which provide the second and third contact points. Towards the ends of the sidecut are deep radii which render quick turn initiation and the final contact points

Low Profile Tip/TailA low profile in the nose and tail of the snowboard maximizes material contact with the snow for more powerful ollie/nollie pop and stability to your landings. Low Profile Tip/Tail also reduces the plowing effect in the nose for better glide to the next feature and superior float when it's deep.

Core

WooBoo CoreThe WooBoo Core is a precise mix of the highest quality woods and bamboo that brings out the ultra-performance in each material.

Laminates

Carbon Max Laminate TechnologyMore carbon equals more power and performance. The Carbon Max Laminate Technology combines an advanced top and bottom carbon matrix to maximize response and strength where it's needed most. The result is a lightweight yet powerful configuration that provides torsional rigidity and energy transfer without sacrificing the control a rider needs.

Bi-Lite FiberglassBi-Lite Fiberglass combines many of the strength characteristics of Never Summer's STS fiberglass with an ultralight glass fiber matrix. This delivers incredible freestyle and freeride performance without sacrificing durability.

RDS 2 Damping SystemThis lightweight system uses three narrower laminated dampening layers that provide the perfect combination of vibration, absorption, and stability. RDS 2 is the perfect balance of freeride stability and freestyle liveliness.

Elastomeric Underfoot StabilizersElastomeric Underfoot Stabilizers directly below the mounting area provide optimum vibration absorption and increase high-speed stability while reducing foot fatigue.

Harmonic Tip / Tail DamperHarmonic Dampers in the tip and tail take out a high percentage of residual vibration by quieting the nose and tail. This enhances stability at speed, in variable snow conditions and on board landings without deadening the liveliness and pop of the cambered areas.

Sidewalls

Sintered P-Tex SidewallsNever Summer was the first snowboard company to use and perfect Sintered P-Tex Sidewalls, and they've never seen one crack. Unlike conventional ABS sidewalls that have a tendency to crack in colder temperatures, Sintered P-Tex Sidewalls maintain their integrity at any temperature.

Base

Durasurf XT Sintered 5501 BaseCrown Plastics has developed an exclusive, super fast, durable sintered base specifically for higher end boards. Just the right amount of graphite has been added making the Durasurf XT Sintered 5501 Base the fastest Never Summer has ever used.

Edges

Full Wrap Metal Edge

Topsheet

Premium Coextruded Polymer TopsheetThe Premium Topsheet is a durable, lightweight, scratch and chip resistant fiber backed thermoplastic. The premium topsheets also provide more grip than other topsheet materials, working as a built-in stomp pad.
