Quick overview

It takes a while to figure out exactly where this board fits in the vast world of snowboards. The Never Summer Shaper Twin covers such an extremely wide spectrum of riding that it is practically impossible to comprehend. This board is a twin, but it has a directional camber profile (more rocker in the tip than the tail). It even has a taper of 10 mm. The Shaper Twin practically has a feature for every type of terrain, which makes it perhaps the most unique all-round snowboard on the market today.

    B-Grade snowboards can contain cosmetic defects and small production discrepancies. All of these defects are cosmetical and the snowboards are new and technically 100%.
  • C-Grade
    C-Grade snowboards have transport damage, scratches on base or top sheet, or other small defects. These snowboards are new but might need some attention.
  • Demo
    Demo snowboards are used by our team for testing purposes. They are in a good state and well serviced.

PROFILE

  • Fusion Rocker Camber
    Introducing fusion rc. 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 back the fun and fluidity that will make snowboarding dynamic again.

  • 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. The chairman power grip sidecut has two more radiuses for additional edge hold.

  • Early Rise Nose

 


CORE

  • NS Superlight Wood Core
    Using a custom blend of wood species that was created to be the lightest weight yet durable core on the market. Never Summer’s ns superlight wood core is cnc sanded in Never Summer’s custom wood working facility to a fraction of a millimeter. A tailored flex is perfected, giving Never Summer’s snowboards unequaled performance.


REINFORCEMENTS

  • 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.

  • RDS 2 Damping 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.

  • Bi-Lite Fiberglass
    Bi-lite fiberglass combines many of the strength characteristics of Never Summer’s sts fiberglass with an ultra light glass fiber matrix. This delivers incredible freestyle and freeride performance without sacrificing durability.

  • STS Pre-tensioned Fiberglass
    The world's best snowboard fiberglass, period. Never Summer’s sts pre-tensioned fiberglass is an advanced pre-hardened, pre-tensioned, layered laminate that has added elastomer stringers between the 0 degree and 90 degree glass fibers (the length of the effective edge). This produces a stronger bond between the individual glass laminates giving Never Summer’s snowboards unmatched strength, edge hold and performance.

  • Elastomeric Underfoot Stabilizers
    Elastomeric underfoot stabilizers directly below the mounting area provide optimum vibration absorption and increase high-speed stability while reducing foot fatigue.


TOPSHEET

  • Premium Co-extruded Polymer Topsheets
    The premium topsheets are very durable, lightweight, scratch and chip resistant fiber made of co-extruded polymer thermoplastic.


BASE

  • Durasurf XT Sintered 5501 Base
    Crown Plastics has developed an exclusive, super fast, durable sintered base specifically for Never Summer's higher end boards. Just the right amount of graphite has been added making the Durasurf XT Sintered 5501 Base the fastest they used.

  • Base color
    Never summer works with Flip-flop bases. This means that the same pattern is cut in 2 colours and the punch is changed. Therefore, we cannot guarantee which base colour you will receive.

 


SIDEWALL & EDGES

  • Sintered P-tex Inner and Outer Sidewall
    Never Summer was 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 Tip and 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.
