Ridden in the 2018 Winter Olympics by USA and Never Summer team rider Chris Corning, the Shaper Twin is an advanced all-mountain freestyle board designed to embrace every aspect of snowboarding. From bottomless powder to Olympic sized park jumps and everything in between, the Shaper Twin is a truly versatile ride. The directional-twin Fusion profile combines rocker in the middle with camber underfoot for incredibly quick turn initiation, tons of pop, and trench digging edge hold. Carbon Max Laminate Technology and Bi-Lite and STS Fiberglass provide optimal energy transfer while the Rubber Damping System helps suck up vibrations from riding fast over rough surfaces. With a versatile medium flex, a Superlight Wood Core, and a Durasurf XT Sintered base, you'll be flying down the hill leaving your buddies in the dust without even trying.
Fusion Rocker Camber - Fusion RC is like a two headed magical beast. Up front you get the floaty, playful vibe of Never Summer's Original RC while on the other side you have the more aggressive, incredibly poppy, camber loaded design.
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: Mid - "Mid" rating on the Never Summer damping scale - playful and snappy underfoot but still retains some smoothness 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.
STS Pretensioned Fiberglass - 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 the board unmatched strength, edge hold and performance.
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 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 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.
Transworld Good Wood Award Winner - Selected as a Good Wood winner by Transworld Magazine - chosen for quality snowboard construction and rideability.
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.
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.
