The Aura is an aggressive, all-mountain/freeride board built for intermediate and advanced riders who like to ride everything from crisp corduroy to waist deep powder. The hybrid profile utilizes camber underfoot for maximum response and energy return, while rocker in the middle of the board enhanced turn-ability and float. The Rubber Damping System and Elastomeric Stabilizers help absorb vibrations from riding on rough surfaces for a smoother and more stable ride. If you're looking for a versatile big mountain board, you've found your one.
Ripsaw Rocker Camber Profile - The Ripsaw Profile features amplified camber with the same amount of rocker as Never Summer's popular RC Rocker Camber profile – using camber for control and pop while still maintaining some of the playfulness and float of rocker. Enhancing the camber even further for the Ripsaw Profile, this board offers more stability, power and precision for those on the charge.
Vario Power Grip Sidecut - The Vario Power Grip sidecut works perfectly with Never Summer's 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.
Damping Rating: Smooth - "Smooth" rating on the Never Summer damping scale - increased chatter/vibration reduction for staying stable at higher speeds.
Damping Ratings = Snappy, Mid, Smooth or Cushy
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.
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.
Carbon Max Laminate Technology - A lot of energy can be lost from the time your brain signals fire to the time your board actually leaves the ground. Mostly, energy goes into the board and gets stuck there. However, this laminate tech combines a top and bottom carbon makeup that allows the energy to continue so you get the most response possible while at the same time allowing enough torsional flex to keep you in control.
RDS 1 Rubber Damping System - This is Never Summer's most extensive damping system. Three full perimeter layers of elastomeric rubber foil are laminated between the metal edge, fiberglass and wood core. This provides unmatched stability and a smooth riding feel especially at high speed
Elastomeric Underfoot Stabilizers - Elastomeric Underfoot Stabilizers are rubber pads directly below the mounting area that provide optimum vibration absorption and increase high speed stability while reducing foot fatigue.
Durasurf XT Sintered 5501 Base - Crown Plastics has developed an exclusive, super fast, durable sintered base. Just the right amount of graphite has been added, making the Durasurf 5501 XT base the fastest they've ever made.
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.
Carbonium Topsheet - A very durable, scratch and chip resistant material with a high-tech carbon fiber-like visual. This textured material also provides more grip than a gloss topsheet, working as a built in stomp pad.
Extended Transition Area - A flat section on the outside of the feet that helps initiate turning, float, and delivers an overall increased consistency in board-feel.
Low-Profile Tip & Tail - A low profile in the nose and tail of the snowboard maximizes material contact with the snow for more powerful ollie/nollie pop and adds stability to your landings. LPT also reduces the plowing effect in the nose for better glide to the next feature and superior float when it’s deep.
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.
