Overview
The Never Summer Snowtrooper snowboard features tried-and-true Original Rocker Camber technology, and is equipped to handle any terrain. Rocker between the bindings provides playfulness and maneuverability, while camber under the bindings enhances stability and response.

The proven flex and feel of the slightly directional profile makes the Snowtrooper a poppy, agile, powder-floating machine. Carbon VXR mixed with Vario Power Grip sidecut creates revolutionary response and superior edge hold.

Ride Style

All Mountain - Whether you're doing hot laps, tree runs, ripping around or just cruising the park, this board's versatility should allow you to shred virtually anywhere on the mountain in whatever condition.

Slash a turn, tweak a grab, bonk a tree, ollie the cat track and be sure to high five your friends before doing it all over again.

Powder/Freeride - Whether dipping into the trees or hiking out of bounds with your buddies, these boards are designed to get you to the good stuff and handle whatever situation you throw at them.

Typically directional or tapered directional shapes, wide floaty noses, floaty rocker technologies and mellow sidecuts for laying out wide turns when you're in the fluffy white.

Beginner/Casual Riding - These boards are great for lazy day carving on mellow groomers or even playing around off-trail. Great for beginners to intermediate or those just wanting to cruise around and have a no-worries good time on the hill. - generally soft to mid flexing boards designed for easy mobility and mellow turns without breaking the bank.

Flex Rating

SoftStiff - Mid-Soft Flex - all-around stability, pop, playful response and control for leaning towards the playful side

Shape

Directional - Directional shapes are typically built for all-mountain freeriding and groomer assaults, and often featured on some entry level snowboards. Designed to perform better riding in one direction over the other, these boards usually come equipped with setback stances, a longer or wider nose for float, and a stiffer tail for drive.

Directional snowboards are good for everything from aggressive power riding to laid-back cruising, from steeps and trees to open powder fields and beyond.

Camber Profile

Rocker Dominant - *Note: profile image exaggerated for visual perspective, please see this brand's specific camber tech for more details

Key Features

RC Rocker Camber Profile - Never Summer's patented rocker designed lineup featuring R.C. (Rocker & Camber) Technology combines a rocker freestyle feel with all mountain high speed performance. Unlike older generation rocker and flat camber designs that may perform well in powder and parks but lack stability and edgehold when riding fast, Never Summer's combined rocker and camber (R.C. Technology) design destroys anything in its path from parks to steeps, to powder and high speed cruisers. This technology blends a NS custom rocker profile with separate camber areas at each end of the board, providing unmatched power and snap out of turns. This also provides better board tracking for high speed stability and massive ollies.

Vario Power Grip Sidecut - The Vario Power Grip sidecut works perfectly with Never Summer's R.C. Rocker/Camber Technology by adding increased edgehold precisely where it's needed most; from 2 inches outside of each binding and inward towards the center of the board, providing added control and response in any condition.

Dampness Rating: Mid - "Mid" rating on the Never Summer dampness scale - playful and snappy underfoot but still retains some smoothness at higher speeds.

Dampness Ratings = Snappy, Mid, Smooth or Cushy

3 Year Warranty - Covered under manufacturer warranty for 3 years from the time of purchase! Warranty includes structural defects only and DOES NOT cover impact damage, abuse, misuse or normal wear and tear expected from aggressive riding.

Sorry folks, but bashing your board on a rock or rail does not qualify as a "manufacturer's defect" and will not be honored.

Core

NS Superlight Wood Core - Taking their Custom Flight Core even further, Never Summer's Superlight Wood Core blends extremely light wood with durable hardwood for unmatched strength to weight ratio.

Laminates

Bi-Lite Fiberglass - Bi-Lite fiberglass combines many of 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 Pretensioned Fiberglass - The world's best snowboard fiberglass, period. Never Summer's 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 that run the length of the effective edge. This produces a stronger bond between the individual glass laminates giving their snowboards unmatched strength, edge hold and performance.

Carbon VXR Laminate Technology - 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 Rubber Damping System - This lightweight system uses three narrower laminated damping layers that provide the perfect combinations of vibration absorption and stability.

Elastomeric Underfoot Stabilizers - Elastomeric Rubber Stabilizers directly below the mounting area provide optimum vibration absorption and increase high speed stability while reducing foot fatigue.

Base

Durasurf Sintered 4501 Base - Crown Plastics has been the industry leader in sintered materials for more than 35 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.

Details

P-Tex Tip & Tail Protection - Like their sidewalls, Never Summer adds durable P-tex to the nose and tail for added protection to their already bombproof boards.

Sintered P-Tex Sidewalls - Never Summer was the first snowboard company to use and perfect Sintered P-Tex Sidewalls and they've never seen one crack. Unlike conventional ABS sidewalls that have a tendency to crack in colder temperatures, Sintered P-Tex Sidewalls maintain their integrity at any temperature.

Never Summer Snowtrooper Snowboard
I have a 2015 but whatever. Should have reviewed this long ago haha. This board is truly an all mountain BEAST. Moderate flex so it can handle anything you throw at it from pow to steeps to hardpack and though not really a park board it's viable for rails, kickers and a little jibbing. The slight directional profile doesn't affect my ability to switch or bust out butter 180s. This thing just rides like a dream in everything. Super mellow and chatter free ride, holds an edge great, never washes out or catches an edge even when you're riding lazy. Responds beautifully on any terrain. No dead spots to speak of really at all. I had it out in a heavy blizzard this past winter and even with that low pro nose it loves fresh pow. One of the most robust boards I've ever seen too I might add. Doesn't chip and scratch and get dinged up after a few days like many do. Probably had this thing out for 50+ east coast days this past season and still looks fresh. This is my go to board when I don't know what to expect. Super duper stoked. I'm just scared to wear it out someday because the year I have is so beautiful!
