If you have any question whether the Never Summer Proto Type Two Snowboard can rip, ask yourself, #WhoTheFIsChrisCorning?

As an early adopter to hybrid camber profiles, Never Summer is holding true to what they know works. The hybrid shape of this board provides a trench digging edge hold, complemented by a medium flex and true twin shape. Never Summer combined the best of their top performing boards to bring you a go anywhere, shred anything, all mountain destroyer.

To set the Never Summer Proto Type Two apart, Never Summer took the stability and support from their top of the line all mountain board and then combined it with their most versatile park and freestyle ripper. What you get is a poppy, mid-flexing deck that can handle the variable conditions across the mountain, as well as any feature in any park.

The core of this board starts with a rocker profile in between your feet. The rocker relieves some tension underfoot, giving way to playful handling. Roll from heel to toe while snapping quick and catch-free 180s. You won’t have to think twice about catching your edge with the hybrid profile, yet when you want to dig in and really lay down a strong decisive turn, the camber beneath your feet contours the playful feel with an effective edge hold.

The asymmetrical build is an interesting technology that Never Summer seamlessly fused into the Proto Type Two. With a definitive left foot and right foot mounting, you can enjoy the pleasures of a centered true twin shape, yet the definitive heel edge is shorter than the toe edge. This adds extra support and stability that our bodies naturally lack, due to the nature of holding a heel edge. You’ll notice initiating and holding your heelside turns will feel more natural and just as responsive as any toeside carve.

Mid to soft flexing boards tend to lose pop in a tradeoff for flexibility. Never Summer added carbon stringers on the tip and tail to counter that, leaving you with an insanely poppy mid flexing board. This ride is truly at the crossroads of a big mountain charger, and a playful lip-slider. We would recommend this to anyone looking to take their riding to the next level. The hybrid camber is forgiving enough for beginners to lock down the fundamentals, while the reinforced camber sections beneath foot make it a board that will grow with you, beyond your expectations.

Available in both regular and wider widths, Never Summer hit the nail on the head with the Proto Type Two. As a mid-flexing, hybrid camber, true twin, the Never Summer Proto Type Two snowboard will give you the stability to take on any day, on any mountain.
