The Never Summer Proto Synthesis X Wide Snowboard is the latest version of a research and development platform that’s been running ten years strong. The Proto line has debuted technologies like the Perforated Rocker Pad, which still rides at the center of the board where your pressure is the highest to take the harsh edge off heavy landings, and together with the RDS 2 Damping System smooths vibrations when you’re riding in less than ideal conditions. That means you’ll be in an ideal position to take advantage of everything the Shockwave Rocker Camber Profile has to offer, including added power and pop from the extended sections of traditional camber, and the enhanced agility from the rocker riding between your bindings.

  • Shockwave Profile is a more aggressive hybrid bend, offering more pop and improved control in icy environments without giving up that rocker freedom
  • Perforated Rocker Pad uses the same material as the RDS 2 Damping System, but covers the entire middle section of the board with it for the smoothest ride
  • Wide design means riders with boots size US Men’s 12 or larger won’t have to worry about boot-out
  • Profile: Hybrid
  • Width: Wide
  • Ability Level: Int/Advanced

  • Shape: Twin
  • Type: All Mountain
  • Large sections of traditional camber run from underneath your feet out to the tip and tail, providing more power for pop, carving, and confident control in icy conditions
  • A section of rocker between the bindings makes the board more agile by acting like a pivot point, allowing for super quick cornering in the park or lining up for some sidehits
  • Twin Shape rides more predictably switch making 180s, and 540s, a bit less scary
  • Extended Transition Areas at either end move the board gradually from camber up to the kick at the tip and tail, allowing for full-edge engagement on the snow for improved hold and control
  • Low Profile Nose and Tail increases the board’s surface area on soft snow, enhancing float while reducing drag on hard snow
  • Power Grip Sidecut is a variable-radius design that helps the board track straight when riding flat on the base, and engages the edges earlier in the turn for improved initiation performance
  • NS SuperLight Wood Core uses a blend of woods to achieve reduced weight with unreduced performance
  • Co-Extruded Polymer Topsheet is a snow-shedding design that also makes the board stronger and resistant to damage
  • Elastomeric Underfoot Stabilizers ride just below the binding inserts, providing vibration reduction and helping to absorb the impact of heavy landings
  • Recluse Carbon Web reinforces the center of the board and extends out from the bindings, resulting in a ride that’s more responsive and powerful but still extremely light and easy-handling
  • Custom-woven Bi-Lite Fiberglass provides tuned flex and response
  • RDS 2 Damping System rides along the edges, helping smooth out chatter from rough conditions
  • Sintered P-Tex Sidewalls are stronger and bend along with the rest of the board, providing consistent flex at all times in all conditions
  • Durasurf XT Sintered 5501 Base is a high-performance option that accelerates effortlessly with regular wax
  • Designed to eliminate vibration at the extreme ends of the board, Harmonic Tip/Tail Dampers ensure a smooth ride in all conditions
  • Full Wrap Metal Edge surrounds the board in strength
  • Mount bindings according to directions on topsheet
  • Handmade at the Never Summer Factory in Colorado, USA
