Never Summer Proto HD - HDX Snowboard Review

The Proto HD Snowboard from Never Summer is continually evolving. This new and improved version features an Extended Transition Rocker Camber Profile (EXRC) specifically for the Proto. This longer transition area extends from the ends of the camber to a new Low Profile Tip and Tail (LPT). Glide and float characteristics are increased and pressure over the ends of the contact points are decreased allowing for effortless edge-to-edge transitioning.

Never Summer's blunted true twin shape cuts down on nose and tail material for a reduced spin weight while increasing the effective edge producing superior stability. Unmatched snap, power, and pop, plus amazing powder floatation, edge hold, and high-speed stability makes the Proto HD a versatile and formidable threat for all aspects of snowboarding.

      Comments about Never Summer Proto HD Snowboard - blue base / green graphic:

      I live in high country Colorado and have ridden 40 days this season. I snapped a Ride board last month riding hard, so I was in dire need of a solid replacement for my quiver. Out here, everyone represents Colorado with pride, and a LOT of people ride Never Summer (almost the majority). Now I see why.

      This board is amazing. Responsive, solid at high speeds (no chatter), holds an edge when you're carving hard and tons of pop. I haven't seen a condition that this board hasn't excelled in, and honestly, I feel like it makes me a better rider. It's almost as if the board has a mind of it's own, and knows when you're dropping in on a kicker or need that extra hold carving a turn. If you're an experienced rider, this should be the only board you need.

      I don't know what the guys over at Never Summer do, but I swear they put magic in their boards. There's no other way to describe the feeling of this deck under your feet. I've recommended their boards to my friends, and they say the same thing. It's just an amazing product.

      • Q:

        Hey Guys,

        I love your youtube channel and this is what brought me here to decide which Proto I would buy. Currently I am riding last year's attack banana 156. However, it seems a bit too short for my liking and it is not that stable on speed and on flats. I am almost 6'1 and and about 155 pounds. I am trying to decide between the 157 Proto and the 160. I like to ride piste and to build some speed with the occasional jumps and powder runs. Your input on this is highly appreciated ;)

          I'm 6' and 190 lbs. I have an Attack Banana 159 (which is honestly a little big for me). I know this is late, but I would definitely go with the 157 (or maybe even 154). If you can demo both, I'd suggest that first.

          The effective edge on the NS board is significantly greater than those on an equally sized Lib board, so you can down size and still feel the same sense of control. I rock the 157 Proto now and am in love.

          i would go with the 157. a 160 would probably be too much board for your weight.
