Description

Never Summer Proto Ultra Snowboard 2023

Retaining the Ultra-massive store of power that never buckles under pressure, the new Triple Camber ProtoUltra brings an entirely new perspective to twin snowboard performance. Featuring straight tracking rockers between the feet with the power of a third camber area in the middle of the board. Camber areas under the feet strengthen the performance as the board transitions into the Early Rise and Float Mechanics of the outside rockers. The comprehensive Rocker Camber profile keeps the Triple Camber ProtoUltra dominant yet playful and forgiving. Centered power, straight tracking stability, strengthened performance, rise and float mechanics, combined with the ultra-augmented carbon configuration and WooBoo Core. Ultra-freestyle performance combined with Ultra-freeride confidence.

Camber Profile

Triple Camber  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!

Never Summer Proto Ultra Snowboard 2023 Camber Profile

Extended Transition Area  Never Summer adds a small flat section in the snowboard profile that improves both turn initiation and powder flotation.

Flex

Flex Rating  8/10 (1=Soft,10=Stiff)

Dampness Rating  6/10 (1=Lively, 10=Damp)

Shape

Vario Power Grip Sidecut  Vario 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

Never Summer Proto Ultra Snowboard 2023 Shape

Low Profile Tip/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 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 Core  The 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 Technology  More 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 Fiberglass  Bi-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 System  This 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 Stabilizers  Elastomeric Underfoot Stabilizers directly below the mounting area provide optimum vibration absorption and increase high-speed stability while reducing foot fatigue.

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.

Sidewalls

Sintered P-Tex Sidewalls  Never 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 Base  Crown 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 Topsheet  The 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.

Binding Compatibility

2 x 4 Insert Pattern
