Profile: Hybrid Camber
Ten years ago, Never Summer created the Proto CT, and the Never Summer Proto series quickly became the best-selling board in snowboard shops across the nation.
Proto CT→Proto HD →Proto Type Two…and now the ProtoSynthesis brings you a new definition of explosive pop and vice-like edge hold. The ProtoSynthesis features Shockwave Rocker Camber, the most massive store of energy found in any profile in snowboarding, and Power Grip Sidecut, the biggest advancement in snowboard edge technology ever created. They’ve created the perfect All Mountain Twin, proving for the 4th time real American snowboard innovation can improve upon perfection.
Shockwave Rocker Camber: Shock Wave Rocker Camber gives you the shock of explosive power and the fluid feel of riding a wave. Featuring longer camber areas for huge pop and vice like stability with a smaller rocker area that retains quick turn initiation and floatation. The hallmarks of the patented Rocker Camber Profile.
Power Grip Sidecut: Utilizing 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.
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. 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 our snowboards unequaled performance.
STS Pretensioned Fiberglass: The world's best snowboard fiberglass, period. The 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 snowboards unmatched strength, edge hold and performance.
Bi-Lite Fiberglass: Bi-lite fiberglass combines many of the strength characteristics of our STS fiberglass with an ultra light glass fiber matrix. This delivers incredible freestyle and freeride performance without sacrificing durability.
Elastomeric Underfoot Stabilizers: Placed directly below the mounting area provide optimum vibration absorption and increase high-speed stability while reducing foot fatigue.
Sintered P-Tex Sidewalls: Unlike conventional ABS sidewalls, that have a tendency to crack in colder temperatures, Sintered P-tex Sidewalls maintain their integrity at any temperature.
Durasurf XT Sintered 5501 Base: Crown Plastics has developed an exclusive, super fast, durable sintered base specifically for our higher end boards. Just the right amount of graphite has been added making the Durasurf XT SIntered Base the fastest Never Summer has ever used.
Premium Co-Extruded Polymer Topsheet: The Premium Topsheets are Never Summer's very 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. These premium topsheet materials include our Carbonium Topsheet, Matte Topsheet and TruGrit Topsheet.
Wide: A wider waist width for those with larger footprints. Recommended for boot sizes 11.5+
The perfect rocker/camber hybrid. Shortened rocker between inserts and camber underfoot with rockered tip/tail for control/precision/float.
Central rocker builds in carve, edge hold, and float. Cambers builds in stability and control. Full contact and control in all conditions.
A completely symmetrical shape, which thrives in a variety of freestyle situations. At the core of its design, the twin shape features an identical nose and tail shape, which provides an identical feel and predictable maneuverability whether riding regular or switch. Although originally developed with park riders in mind, twin shapes have also grown to be embraced by many all-mountain riders that like to bring a skateboard style riding out of the park and onto the entire mountain.

Versatility at its finest. From the park to the peak and anywhere in between.
