Never Summer Proto Type Two Snowboard 2020

Never Summer Proto Type Two Snowboard 2020


Flex: Mid-Flex // Shape: Asymetrical Twin // Profile: Camber-Rocker-Camber

From steep and deep to laps in the park the Never Summer Proto Type Two is capable of doing it all. Plenty of butter in the tip and tail but with significant more power in the center of the board when compared to the 100% freestyle Peacemaker. Snappy and lively is how it feels when on edge and the asymmetrical design makes heel side turns even easier. Ripsaw profile brings home trench digging edge hold, astronaut caliber pop, and surreal stability at speed that dominates the whole mountain. Throw some carbon on the top and bottom and you have got yourself a fine piece of ace. Legit all mountain twins are hard to come by, but the Never Summer Proto Type Two delivers on the promise.


What does it mean for a board to have an asymmetrical shape?

While directional boards have a different length end to end, asymmetrical boards have a different shape on the heel side vs. the toe side. Since our knees don’t bend the same way forwards and backwards, we can generate far more power on our toe side turns than our heel side. Asymmetrical boards take advantage of this by putting a stronger and more carve-focused edge on the toe side. 

Is this a good freestyle board?

The Proto is definitely an all-mountain board, but one that will absolutely excel in the freestyle game. It may be asymmetrical but its still a twin, so riding or landing switch will not be a problem. Plenty of rocker and a relatively flexible feel makes this a really good choice for someone who spends some time in the park. 

What’s the difference between the Proto Type 2 and the Never Summer West Bound?

While both boards feature ripsaw rocker/camber, but the Never Summer West Bound has a setback shape. If you want a true all-mountain freestyle deck than the Proto Type 2 is a great call, but if you want something a little more freeride-oriented that floats a bit better, go with the West Bound.
