NEVER SUMMER Proto FR Snowboard 2023

Size

Innovation is taking two things that exist and putting them together in a new way. We know because we’ve done it before. We innovate. The snowboard profile has been stuck in an innovation rut…until now! Introducing the Triple Camber Proto FR. We took our best selling snowboard of all time and turned it into the most versatile tool for the ride-everywhere freerider. Every function of a snowboard is now improved with Never Summer’s new patented Triple Camber Profile…edge hold, stability, power, pop, speed, float, forgiveness and smooth responsiveness. Words and images are never going to do this board justice. The ride is transformative. Immerse yourself in the Triple Camber Proto FR experience. Welcome to the realization that snowboarding is never going to be the same.

Flex: 8/10

Shape: Directional - Directional Shape is the classic snowboard shape, designed to be ridden with a slightly longer nose than tail to concentrate pop in the tail while providing plenty of float, flow, and control to rip any terrain or condition

Bend: Triple Camber - Game changing innovation. The center rocker of our patented Rocker Camber profile is now a third camber area flanked by two small rockers. The result is a completely balanced ride not found in any other profile. Triple Camber makes the most efficient use of your entire edge. The primary edge hold starts from the center of the board. It’s insanely responsive and stable and aids the high performance engagement of the two outside camber areas located under your feet. The overall Rocker Camber shape retains the playful and forgiving feel. Balanced vice-like edge hold, rocket launching pop, and insane butterability. Game changed.

Core: WooBoo Wood Core - Wood and Bamboo

Fibreglass: Elastomeric Carbon, Bi-Lite Fiberglass, STS Pre-tensioned Fiberglass

Base:Durasurf XT Sintered 5501 Base - Crown Plastics has developed an exclusive, super fast, durable sintered base specifically for our higher end boards. Just the right amount of graphite has been added making the DURASURF XT SINTERED 5501 BASE the fastest we've ever used.

EXTRAS

Co-Extruded Polymer Topsheet - The PREMIUM TOPSHEETS are our very 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.

Extended Transition Area - A small, flat section in the snowboard profile that improves both turn initiation and powder floatation.

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

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

RDS 1 Dampening System and ECDS-Elastomeric+ Carbon Dampening SystemThe laminated damping layers on the RDS 1 are more extensive along the full length of the effective edge, and less extensive in the tip and tail, giving the board high-speed stability with reduced tip and tail swing weight.

Sintered P-Tex Sidewall - We were the first snowboard company to use and perfect SINTERED P-TEX SIDEWALLS, and we'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.

P-Tex Nose/Tail Protection - Boards with P-TEX TIP/TAIL PROTECTION have UHMW Plastic, or P-Tex, which is a softer molecular material, that not only seals and protects the wood core, but also absorbs vibration and impact.
