NEVER SUMMER Proto Ultra Snowboard 2023

Size

Chris Corning, Never Summer Team Rider and World Champion Snowboarder, needs a board with an Ultra-massive store of power that won’t buckle under pressure. The Proto Ultra features a unique shape, our new Triple Camber Twin Profile, an ultra-augmented Carbon Configuration and WooBoo Core. Our CC Carbon Configuration has a full perimeter, top side carbon X and base side dual carbon X for Ultra-power. The WooBoo Core is a precise mix of the highest quality woods and bamboo that bring out the ultra-performance in each material. Ultra-freestyle performance coupled with Ultra-freeride carvability…a symbiosis of power.

**base designs and colors may vary***

Flex: 8/10

Shape: Twin - Freestyle specific: Identical tip/tail lengths, symmetrical core profiling, flex and a centered binding stance

Bend: Triple Camber Twin - Triple Camber built for freestyle. The center rocker of our patented Rocker Camber profile is now a third camber area flanked by two small rockers built into a twin. Get the most out of your edge with triple camber in a twin. It’s insanely responsive and stable. The board will lock in between the feet on rails with this twin triple camber profile. Balanced vice-like edge hold, rocket launching pop, and insane butterability.

Core: WooBoo Wood Core - Wood and Bamboo

Fibreglass: CC Carbon Configuration, STS Pre-tensioned Fiberglass, Bi-Lite 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

Low Profile Nose/Tail - A low profile in the nose and tail of the snowboard maximizes material contact with the snow for more powerful ollie/nollie pop and adds 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.

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 2 Dampening System - This lightweight system uses three narrower laminated damping layers that provide the perfect combination of vibration, absorption, and stability. RDS 2 is the perfect balance of freeride stability and freestyle liveliness

Perforated Rocker Pad - Perforated to reduce weight, these thin elastomeric PERFORATED ROCKER PADS are strategically located in the mid-section of the board. This absorbs the vibration between the feet and provides a buffer in the rocker area, which is in continuous contact with the snow.

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.

Harmonic Tip-Tail Damper - HARMONIC 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.
