Designed with all-mountain freestyle riding in mind, the Shade features a responsive yet playful flex that is predictable and easy to ride. Carbon inlays provide increased pop and durability, while added damping properties ensure a smooth ride that is stable and responsive both inside the park and across the whole mountain.

RC Rocker Camber Profile - Original rocker camber profile providing a surfy and playful feel while maintaining versatility.
Power Grip Sidecut - Deeper cut towards the tip and tail, to an almost completely straight section in the middle, the sidecut is cut on multiple radii for added control and response in any condition.
Damping Rating: Snappy - "Snappy" rating on the Never Summer damping scale - very playful and lively underfoot.
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 - Delivers incredible freestyle and freeride performance without sacrificing durability.
Power Strip Carbon - Carbon stringers in a straight line from the inserts out to the ends of the board for added stability on landings. The beams placement also increases pop in the nose and the tail without adversely affecting the mid-flex of the board.
FDS Freestyle Damping System - Utilizing thinner rubber foil for a lighter, snappier feel while still providing stability that you don't generally find in a freestyle, pipe/park board.
Elastomeric Underfoot Stabilizers - 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 it 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.
Co-Extruded Polymer Topsheet - This premium topsheet is made from co-extruded polymer thermoplastic fiber and is very durable, lightweight, scratch and chip resistant.
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 - This 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 - Sintered P-Tex Sidewalls maintain their integrity at any temperature offering a smoother, faster ride.
