A wider version of the SL, this deck dominates every part of the mountain from parks, to pow, to steeps. It’s width reduces toe and heel drag for the bigger rider, but it’s narrow enough to be quick and responsive edge to edge. A deeper sidecut, the Carbon VXR and powerful flex make it the most versatile, high-performance mid-wide board we’ve ever built!
Rocker Type

Original Rocker Camber Profile (R.C.) – Our original Rocker/Camber Profile is the best of both worlds… rocker underfoot for floatation, mobility, and a forgiving feel, plus camber extending from the outside of the mounting area to the transition area for superior edge hold and explosive pop. The transition area at the end of the camber extends to the effective edge keeping the board from pushing against the snow for effortless glide while making it less likely to catch an edge. RC delivers all the benefits of a rocker design with the spring, stability and edgehold of camber.
Flex

Flex Rating (1 Soft – 10 Stiff) – 5.5 , All Mountain Domination
Sidecut

Vario Power Grip – Multi-radius sidecut adds increased edgehold precisely where it’s needed most, from 2 inches outside of each binding and inward toward the center of the board, providing added control and response in any conditions (Sidecut Radius numbers are an average).
Core

NS Custom Flightcore – Never Summer’s exclusive CUSTOM FLIGHT CORE is the most technically advanced core system we’ve ever used. Designed and built in NS’s woodcore facility, these cores fuse premium hardwood and ultra light soft wood laminates together with vertical layers of elastomeric vibration dampers. These lightweight perimeter dampers actually increase vibration absorption the faster you ride while maintaining an incredible amount of snap and liveliness, providing a level of edgehold and high speed performance that only a Never Summer snowboard can deliver.
Sidewalls

Sintered P-Tex Sidewall – Unlike conventional ABS sidewalls that have a tendency to crack in colder temperatures, the Sintered P-Tex Sidewall maintains it’s integrity at any temperature.
Base

Durasurf Sintered 4501 Base – Crown Plastics has been the industry leader in sintered materials for over 36 years and has created the DURASURF 4501 sintered base exclusively for Never Summer. This new high density base is extremely fast and will provide unmatched performance and durability.
Edges

Fully Wrapped Metal Edge – Provides unmatched carving ability and edge grip.

Additional Features / Laminates

Bi-Lite Fiberglass – Combining the strength characteristics of STS ADVANCED 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. Our STS ADVANCED FIBERGLASS is a 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 our snowboard unmatched strength, edge hold and performance.
Carbon VXR Laminate Technology – The CARBON VXR system is specifically designed for our SL, Legacy, Evo, Revolver and Infinity freestyle snowboards. Dual carbon v’s help transfer more energy to the end of the effective edge, tip and tail without making these boards too stiff for buttering and presses. This is the most versatile Carbon system for those that prefer a freestyle feel to their board whether in the park or freeriding the mountain.
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 specifically designed for the SL, Legacy and Infinity.
Elastomeric Underfoot Stabilizers – Elastomeric Rubber Stabilizers directly below the mounting area provide optimum vibration absorption and increase high speed stability while reducing
foot fatigue.
