The 2021 Never Summer Proto Synthesis snowboard is the evolution of the Proto Type Two, one of the most sought-after boards of the past few years and one of the best performing all mountain boards ever to grace the snow. This high performing, high tech, all mountain board delivers non-stop action in the park and on groomers, featuring a lively hybrid camber profile that delivers explosive pop and strong edge hold, and tonnes of high-tech features to make this one of the smoothest boards you're likely to set foot on. Taking everything that made the Proto Type Two so good, refining it, and adding even more power, the Proto Synthesis takes performance to a whole new level.
NEVER SUMMER PROTO ULTRA
SHOCK WAVE RC
ULTRA ALL MOUNTAIN TWIN
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 Shock Wave Rocker Camber 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 freeride Ultra-carvability... a symbiosis of power.
NEVER SUMMER PROTO SLINGER
SHOCK WAVE RC
We took the best of the freestyle ruling Funslinger, combined it with the all mountain destroying Proto, and created the new freestyle snowboarding dominator. The Proto Slinger features our new Shock Wave Rocker Camber Profile and Asymmetrical edge bite. Now you have a freestyle board that does what a freestyle board is not supposed to do. A soft flexing, smooth floating, crazy biting, insanely boosting...oxymoron. (X - Wide version of the original)
SMOOTH MULTITASKING FEISTY CARVER
First the Shaper Series creator and preeminent snowboard shaper Tim Canaday brought us the Fusion RC Profile. Now he’s taken two of our award-winning Shaper Series Snowboards, the InstaGator and the Maverix, blended them together and created your new weapon of choice. The Harpoon is the best performing, tapered, volume board ever imagined. Amazing nimbility complimented by smooth and freakish stability. Swim better than a whale. Cut better than a knife. Hold a line better than a rocket. Pull the trigger. You’ll ride better for it.
NEVER SUMMER SHAPER TWIN
SHAPE SHIFTING MELLOW TAPER MASTER OF ALL SNOWBOARDS
Born a mutant, the Shaper Twin is dominating every category of snowboarding. It takes a board this unusual to rule all classes. Twin in length, yet tapered in direction, the Shaper Twin gives you balanced and exceptional performance in every terrain ventured. In the tail it has Ripsaw Rocker Camber so you get trench digging edge hold, snap out of turns, and huge pop. In the nose we placed Original Rocker Camber for insane float and a surfy feel.
New for this season we’ve added Blower Stance to the Shaper Twin and now it’s a deep pow destroyer too!
NEVER SUMMER SWIFT
FLOATATIOUS SEDUCTIVE CARVER
The Swift was the inspiration for, and the Godfather of, the Shaper Series. Originally we set out to make the greatest powder board of all time. We checked that box, but it turns out we actually made a board that was incredible everywhere. The Swift features the greatest amount of taper in the Shaper Series, with awesome everywhere performance…in or out of POW. Take the Swift anywhere you want to go. It’s the powder board you’ll choose to ride in all conditions.
NEVER SUMMER SNOWTROOPER
The Snowtrooper is the all mountain equalizer and a great board for any riding style. It features our Original Rocker Camber Profile for amazing float and playfulness, a mid flex for all mountain versatility, with the supercharged feel of a slightly setback stance. The Trooper synchronizes your ride for the entire mountain. It’s the Swiss ArmyKnife of snowboards. (X - Wide version of the original)
JONES MOUNTAIN TWIN
FREESTYLE MEETS FREERIDE
ideal for slashing, jibbing and jumping
The New Mountain Twin is a versatile directional twin designed for playful shredders who want one board that can ride it all. The Mountain Twin is built to shred the whole mountain like it's and endless skatepark without sacrificing float in pow or stability for bombing lines.
The 2021 JONES Frontier is made for riders who want a floaty freeride board that rides as well in the park as it does in deep snow. The rocker nose and tail and 3D spoon shape gives the board great float in powder, while the positive camber underfoot gives you a solid and stable platform for hard and fast riding.
The 2021 Academy Propacamba offers a no-frills deck that excels in the jibbing department. At least, that's what Transworld said when they awarded it the Mens Park Winner in the Good Wood Snowboard Test. Featuring Academy's tried and true Micro Camber Profile, the Propacamba will allow you to butter, jib and jump with perfect stability and flex, while negotiating technical rail manoeuvres like a dream. Despite the soft and playful nature of the board, you'll be surprised at the level of responsiveness and predictability that this camber profile will bring to the table.
Academy has partnered with Never Summer Manufacturing in order to build some of the best snowboards in the world. Backed...
The 2021 Academy Team is a directional hybrid camber twin, which is perfect for riders who want a freestyle board, that they can ride all over the mountain. The Hybrid camber profile puts regular camber between your feet, and rocker on the nose and tail. Combining the camber with the Vario Power Grip sidecut, you get edge hold you can rely on, without the catchy feeling.
This board is scheduled for delivery to POW before the start of our season. You will be notified when your board has arrived in store, for collection or shipping.
