Never Summer Women's Raven All Mountain SnowboardSTYLE # RAVEN14/15
Soaring above all others, the Carbonium Raven is the most high tech women s all mountain board on the market. The slightly stiffer flex and extensive damping make the Raven the right choice for women who love going fast and laying down hard carves. A more drawn out nose and quick tail allows the board to plane off on top of the deepest pow. If you re looking for a smooth, stable, performance driven women s all mountain board, you ve found it in the Raven.
FEATURES: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.Womens Carbonium Laminate Technology: WCLT has been designed specifically for the Carbonium Raven. Narrow Carbon stringers on the top and bottom of the wood core provide power and energy transfer without sacrificing the torsional control a lighter rider needs. Additional fiberglass strips reinforce the effective edge for hold and durability.Original Rocker Camber Profile: Our original Rocker Camber Profile is the best of both worlds...rocker underfoot for floatation, mobility, and a forgiving feel, plus camber extending from the outside of the mounting area to the transition area for superior edge hold and explosive pop. The transition area at the end of the camber extends to the effective edge keeping the board from pushing against the snow for effortless glide while making it less likely to catch an edge. RC delivers all the benefits of a rocker design with the spring, stability and edgehold of camber.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.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 Superlight Wood Core: Taking our custom flight core even further, we ve designed the SUPERLIGHT WOOD CORE specifically for our new Carbonium series. This core blends extremely light wood with durable hardwood for unmatched strength to weight ratio.RDS 1 Damping System: The laminated damping layers on the RDS 1 are more extensive along the full length of the effective edge, less extensive in the tip and tail. This combines high speed stability with reduced tip and tail swing weight.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 XT Sintered 5501 Base: Crown Plastics has developed an exclusive, super fast, durable sintered base specifically for the Carbonium Series. Just the right amount of graphite has been added making the DURASURF 5501 XT base the fastest we ve ever used.P-Tex Tip and Tail ProtectionFull Wrap Metal Edge
