Product details

The Protoslinger X is a blend of Never Summer’s now-extinct park board, the Funslinger, and the all-mountain ripper, Proto Type Two. This true twin snowboard has an asymmetrical shape with a medium/soft flex and a profile that is powerful, yet cruisey enough, for the powder for the intermediate rider or above.

Key Features:

  • Shockwave Rocker Camber – This profile contains longer camber areas beneath the feet for huge pop and incredible stability, with a small rocker area in between the feet that retains float in the powder and quick turn initiation.

  • Asym Vario Power Grip Sidecut – The sidecut utilizes multiple radii to create extra contact points along the edge of the board to increase edge hold. The asymmetrical version of this sidecut puts a shorter radius on the heel side so the contact points are located closer to the heels for better grip and edge hold.

  • NS Superlight Wood Core – The core features a custom blend of wood species designed to be the lightest weight, yet most durable.

  • Low Profile Tip/Tail – A thinner/shorter tip and tail gives the board maximum contact with the snow for more powerful pop and stability to landings. This also gives the board better glide and better float.

  • STS Pretensioned Fiberglass – The fiberglass on this board has been pretensioned to produce the same feel from day 1 on day 300. Added elastomer stringers provide a stronger bond between the individual glass laminates to increase the strength, performance, and edge hold of the board.

What it’s good for

A freestyler's dream board! New this year with NeverSummer's Shockwave rocker-camber profile gives you extra camber under foot providing huge pop and extra stability. True twin with a mid soft flex so its great for buttering around, pressing, and locking in on the rails, but also does not compromise landing stability off of jumps. Asymmetrical side walls providing extra edge hold on the heelside turns. Also great for the rider who just wants a soft flex playful board for the entire mountain.
