Never Summer Proto Review and in store clinic October 24th

Over the past couple seasons, there has been one board that has peaked the interest of a wide variety of riders. That board is the Never Summer Proto Type Two. It’s almost certain that someone stops into our stores each week asking about this board and the anticipation is well deserved. The Proto Type Two definitely lives up to the hype and here’s why.

The Proto Type Two is a perfect asymmetrical combination of the Funslinger and Ripsaw. This board can be taken through hot park laps or used as a freeride charger. It’s a happy medium for those looking for a versatile deck.

For those of you who are new to the long tradition of Never Summer snowboards, the Proto Type Two is the 2nd generation of their original Proto HD, which was discontinued after the 2015/2016 season. What does the new generation of the Proto have to offer? The Proto Type Two added the Ripsaw Rocker Camber Profile for greater edge hold and pop, as well as an asymmetrical design creating a designated heel and toe edge.  The asym twin design offers a deeper heel edge side cut making the Proto Type Two a more responsive, super stable, all mountain twin dominator.

So who is this board for? The Proto Type Two is for progressive, intermediate, and advanced riders that enjoy laps in the park just as much as they enjoy exploring the whole hill. The Never Summer Proto Type Two is available in a variety of sizes (including wide options called the Proto Type Two X) and can be found at our east or west locations and on our website (linked below).
