The Never Summer Proto Slinger X Snowboard is the ultimate choice for freestyle snowboarding enthusiasts. Designed with Shockwave Rocker Camber Profile and Asymmetrical edge bite, this board is perfect for technical riders like Sam Klein. But that's not all - it also performs exceptionally well in powder, trenches, and big jumps. With its soft flexing design, the Proto Slinger X Snowboard is a true oxymoron that defies expectations.

Key Features:

  • Shockwave Rocker Camber Profile provides excellent control and stability on any terrain.
  • Asymmetrical edge bite ensures maximum grip and precision turning.
  • Soft flexing design allows for easy maneuverability and a comfortable riding experience.
  • Ideal for freestyle snowboarding but also excels in powder, trenches, and big jumps.
  • Made with high-quality materials to ensure durability and longevity.

All Mountain Shredder

Originally posted at neversummer.com on Jul 17, 2023
A freestyle board yes but riding this all over the mountain is all around fun. The soft flex allows me to slow it down to learn new ground tricks and jumps/side hits. But it still has the speed to get the adrenaline going and carve it up. This board paired with my Proto Synthesis is a perfect quiver.

Rode this board at the 2023 demo at Monarch. Ran it through pow, chunk, drops and jibs in the trees. High speed mixed bumps and trenches on groomers. Rails, boxes, features, and kickers in the park. Amazing all mountain jib board.

5 /5
I finished a season snowboarding in Snoqualmie Pass and Sarah was great at offering insight about what kinds of gear were best for the terrain I'd see at my typical groomed mountains! She was very responsive to all of my questions and it felt like I was asking a friend for advice rather than a sales pitcher. I feel grateful to have matched with a knowledgeable local and will look to get more recommendations from her. It is my first time buying snowboarding gear and Curated had just what I needed - price match included!

Nico rocked!
5 /5
Nico helped me tackle the overwhelming and vast realm of purchasing my first ski setup. He was super knowledgeable and took the time to learn about me. The gear he picked out for me really catered towards what I told him I liked to do on the mountain as well as my budget restrictions. All in all great experience and really helped me get over the hump of investing in my own gear!

Wasn't planning on making my purchase today but he steered me in the right direction with prompt knowledge and recommendations that took all of my input into account. Not pushy in the slightest. Left me with enough information right off the bat to keep it brief and feel like I had what I needed to make a decision.

So helpful with helping me decide. I ended up spending more than I wanted but feel great knowing that I’ve got the right gear that’ll hopefully last me a while. And also he gave me so many other options that were in and below my budget. Great service, awesome guy.

It was a pleasure working with Henry!
5 /5
I've been using the same skis for 13 years and have been agonizing over getting a new setup. After doing tons of research and spinning in circles, I decided to reach out to a Curated expert for help. Henry was exactly what I needed. He made sound recommendations based on my needs, was responsive to my many questions, and served as the voice of reason I needed. He also worked out a good deal. A couple hours after reaching out to Curated and connecting with Henry, I made my long awaited purchase. I can't wait to use my new set up.

Hayden was patient with me on the process. He made multiple recommendations and then adjusted those recommendations after I had barriers to the overall price. Ultimately I went with his personal recommendations because he instills confidence through his dialogue, reviews and overall approach.
