Never Summer Ripsaw-X Wide Aggressive Twin SnowboardSTYLE # RIPSAW-X14/15
X: A wide version of the original. Introducing the true twin Ripsaw Camber Rocker (CR). Like nothing you ve ever ridden before, it goes everywhere and shreds anything. Our new CR Technology features amplified camber areas that are longer and deeper than our traditional Rocker Camber (RC) boards. This brings you twice the amount of camber while still retaining RC playfulness. The true twin Ripsaw CR provides superior edge hold, amazing playfulness, incredible float and gigantic pop...especially when compared to traditional camber boards. Not for the faint of heart, the stiffer flex with Camber Rocker profile makes this modern twin the go-to board for the aggressive rider who shreds everything.
FEATURES:Matte TopsheetCarbon VXR Laminate Technology: The Carbon VXR was the first carbon fiber configuration we designed for our Rocker Camber and we hit the nail on the head. Carbon V s extended out from the inserts to the effective edge for quick response while stiffening the board torsionally. Additionally V s are positioned to the ends of the board providing maximum boost and pop when loaded up. This is an ideal layup to transfer energy to the end of the effective edge, tip/ tail and still give the board a softer more forgiving mid flex for torsional control.Extended Transition Rocker Camber Profile: Longer transition zones extending from the end of the camber area and into the low profile tip/tail enhancing the inherent characteristics of our Original Rocker Camber Profile. This is captured by the extended transition areas decreasing pressure over the ends of the effective edge, allowing the board to flow instead of pushing against the snow. This creates more fluid edge transfer, increases glide and powder floatation. EXRC improves edge hold when the camber is engaged yet is more forgiving and less likely to catch that edge when in neutral position.Vario Power Grip Sidecut: Vario Power Grip Sidecut utilizes multiple radiuses creating extra contact points to enhance edge hold. A flat section in the rocker area provides a broad contact point when flexed, however when unbent allows the board to track straight and not catch. Flanking this straight section are two shallow radius which provide the second and third contact points. Towards the ends of the sidecut are deep radius which render quick turn initiation and the final contact points.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. Low Profile Tip/Tail also reduces the plowing effect in the nose for better glide to the next feature and superior float when it s deep.STS Pretensioned Fiberglass: The world s best snowboard fiberglass, period. Our 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 (the length of the effective edge). This produces a stronger bond between the individual glass laminates giving our snowboards unmatched strength, edge hold and performance.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.NS Custom Flightcore: Never Summer s exclusive CUSTOM FLIGHT CORE is the most technically advanced core system we ve ever used. Designed and built in NS woodcore facility, these cores fuse premium hardwood and ultra light softwood laminates together with vertical layers of elastomeric vibration dampers. These lightweight perimeter dampers actually increase vibration absorption the faster you ride while maintaining an incredible amount of snap and liveliness, providing a level of edgehold and high speed performance that only a Never Summer snowboards can deliver.RDS 2 Damping System: This lightweight system uses three narrower laminated damping layers that provide the perfect combination of vibration absorption and stability. RDS 2 is the perfect balance of freeride stability and freestyle liveliness.Elastomeric Underfoot Stabilizers: Elastomeric Rubber Stabilizers directly below the mounting area provide optimum vibration absorption and increase high speed stability while reducing foot fatigue.Sintered P-Tex Sidewall: We were the first snowboard company to use and perfect SINTERED P-TEX SIDEWALLS, and we 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.Durasurf Sintered 4501 Base: Crown Plastics has been the industry leader in sintered materials for over 36 years and has created the DURASURF 4501 sintered base exclusively for Never Summer. This new high density base is extremely fast and will provide unmatched performance and durability. P-Tex Tip and Tail ProtectionFull Wrap Metal Edge
