Never Summer Swift Snowboard - 2018
Never Summer put the edge gripping hold, the snap out of turns, and the huge pop of Ripsaw RC in the back and combined it with the float and surfy feel of Original RC in the front. Fusion is here to bring the fun and fluidity that will make snowboarding dynamic again.
Extended Transition Area – A small flat section in the snowboard profile that improves both turn initiation and powder flotation.
- Fusion Rocker Camber
- Early Rise Nose
- Flex Rating – Mid-Firm
- Dampness Rating – Smooth
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 radii which provide the second and third contact points. Towards the ends of the sidecut are deep radius which renders quick turn initiation and the final contact points.
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.
NS SuperLight Wood Core – Using a sustainable genetically modified Poplar wood fused with a durable Birch hardwood, NS has created the lightest weight yet durable core on the market. The NS SuperLight Wood Core is CNC sanded in their custom wood working facility to a fraction of a millimeter. A tailored flex is perfected, giving their snowboards unequaled performance.
Carbon Max Laminate Technology – Carbon Max Laminate Technology combines an advanced top and base carbon matrix to maximize response and strength where you need it the most. The result is a lightweight yet powerful configuration that provides torsional rigidity and energy transfer without sacrificing control.
STS Pre-Tensioned Fiberglass – The world's best snowboard fiberglass. Never Summer's STS advanced fiberglass is a pre-hardened, pretensioned layered laminate that has added elastomer stringers between the 0 degree and 90 degree glass fibers. This produces a stronger bond between the individual glass laminates giving snowboards unmatched strength, edge hold, and performance.
RDS 1 Damping System – The 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.
Bi-Lite Fiberglass – Bi-Lite combines many of the strength characteristics of STS Advanced fiberglass with an ultra-light glass fiber matrix. This delivers incredible freestyle and freeride performance without sacrificing durability.
Elastomeric Underfoot Stabilizers – Elastomeric Rubber Stabilizers directly below the mounting area provide optimum vibration absorption and increase high-speed stability while reducing foot fatigue.
