It's got good genes.

Never Summer's Heritage Snowboard was designed for big-mountain freestyle riders who crave high-speed control. With a snappy flex for clearing mandatory gaps and plenty of dampening for chatter-free charging, the Heritage boosts backcountry kickers, stomps mammoth cliff drops, and weaves through tech tree lines with ease.
  • R.C. Technology uses rocker between your feet with camber in the tip/tail for great deep-snow float, pop, and reliable edge control
  • CDS Dampening System uses rubber stingers to reduce vibrations and chatter
  • VarioGrip sidecut blends multiple radii for powerful carves and adds extra contact points in the binding zones for better edge hold in icy or hardpacked snow
  • Carbonium topsheet resists scratches, dents, and chips
  • P-tex tip and tail protectors protect against impact and delamination

Shred This Board

Get this board if you have to pick you way through the sharks to get to the powder, i have absolutely no regard for the bottom of board, early season/late season it doesn't matter. I should have destroyed this board several times but somehow it only has minor scratches. If you want a board to ride on everything, this is the board for you.

how is this board on groomers pow and ice?...

The reviews on this page say it handles ice/crud/pow/groomers all amazingly... I'm thinking of buying this myself.

I have this board and ride on the east coast. Feels good on groomed surfaces. Flys on ice but not to much powder out here to say. Overall I like it a lot and would def recommend this board.

Never Summer heritage

Rode this board this weekend and had the best runs of my season. Made me re-evaluate my own gear!! The conditions varied greatly and it dominated them all: Powder, packed, crud, ice, it does it all!!

New Tech-- GOOD!

I have been looking skeptically over the past few years at things like Banana, R.C., Magne-traction, Vario Power Grip etc.. I have been riding traditional camber/ sidecut boards for 20 years and the new stuff looks nuts. BUT: The RockerCamber from NeverSummer and C2 from Mervin seem to be the way to go for someone who is used to a traditonal camber design. They feel similar to ride but with noticeable improvements in control/forgiveness at all speeds, terrain and snow conditions. I went with the NS Heritage 166X (6'1" 190 sz 12) and it rides more nimble yet stable, and feels smaller than my old Fatbob 159. The Vario Power Grip is incredible on steep icy spots. It made runs that would have been a chore, a pleasure. On long straight traverses you do start to feel it gradually pulling you into an unasked for turn. This happens slow (even at high-speeds:) and doesn't sneak up on you so it is easy to manage- just requires an extra heel-toe transition. B/C of this though, I can't imagine wanting the extra aggressiveness of the Magnetraction from Mervin's boards, although I haven't ridden it. I would like to see them use their "mellow" MagneTraction in more of their models for me to consider Gnu/Libtech for my next purchase. (I've heard you can de-tune the edges to combat the 'too-grabby' problem many have reported, but NS' Vario seems perfect as-is) I also appreciate the full metal edge nose/tail w/ NS. Every Merv board I've seen on the mountain w/o the nose metal has been chewed to snot. As for made-in-USA: I'm not a hater of all things China, nor patriotic, but I immediately noticed board quality decreases before I saw the made-in-China stickers. I feel that w/ the overseas shift, the materials qualities have declined and the consistency board-to-board is terrible. (same make & model- one flexes like a 2 the next a 6) Thinner edges, weaker binding inserts, boards that snap, crackle and pop every time you flex them..just to name a few problems. The company line at Burton, K2, etc. in regards to Chinese factories will be: the equipment is the same, strict quality control, in-house board pros etc... but I suspect almost no one who put a hand to that board will ever go near a ski hill. IDK- maybe its the climate, pollution, altitude, salty air on cargo ships- but things aren't right with those boards. Merv, NS, Unity and a few others still make excellent boards close to home, employ riders and help small businesses. I bought a locally made board at a reasonable price from a local independent shop that gave great advice. I am thrilled with my new NeverSummer and will be buying one for my wife b/c I am certain she will enjoy her riding so much more!

from 2011 Heritage rider

i have a 155 2011 Heritage and i couldn't ask for a better board. other than park (which i don't go into much) this board is amazing... powder, steeps, crud, anything. its got a great look to it too, definitely different from most other boards out there... if you are trying to decide between the sl and heritage, and you don't do much park, i'd go for the heritage.

Never Summer Heritage Review

Snowboard Review: Never Summer Heritage
By Soren McCarty

Never Summer : Heritage Snowboard

First Impression : Being a Colorado native I love that the Heritage has a Colorado Flag on it in being held in the talons of an eagle. The Carbonium topsheet looks cool and is extra strong and helps make this board indestructible. Never Summer has a three-year warranty on all their boards, this is un heard of in the industry. Hats off to Never Summer for setting the bar higher than most. This Board is their Big Mountain Freestyle board, the perfect fit for my style of riding. This board is designed to handle all aspects of the mountain and all types of snow conditions.

Weight : The board is lighter than the Never Summer’s I have ridden in the past, with their new SuperLight woodcore and Carbonium Laminate Technology. However the board is really strong, very stable and has lots of pop. The Heritage has Rocker and Camber technology, which Never Summer is famous for having on all their boards, they were one of the first to use both in their board designs and they have patented this technology, something that many other board manufactures are trying to mimic. The Heritage also has Vario Power Grip Sidecut, which makes for an extremely stable ride.

Flex : The Heritage is fairly stiff , with lots of pop, the board handles like a dream in the powder and will not wash out on ice or man made. The stiffness is key when making turns at high speed, last thing you want is a board that is going to chatter when you come across an icy spot. This board would be great for boarder cross due to the faithful nature of the way it rides. The Board is a flex of 5.5 out of 10 , 10 being the stiffest.

Turning : This board turns on a dime and due to the camber on the feet, allows for quick edge-to-edge turning with the slightest motion. For a big mountain board the turn radius is less that you would expect, making it a great board for trees, moguls and the terrain park. The Heritage lays down deep carves with ease and rolls quick from toe to heel and vice versa. The Board comes in a variety of widths in the waist of the board depending on size of board, it is also available in the Heritage X , which is wider for riders with big feet.

Control : This is the factor I was most impressed with about this board, the ease of control is impressive and the heritage has a smooth ride. From the moment I jumped on the Heritage I noticed how easy it was to control, making it a treat to ride and a great board to up the level of your riding. A board that is easy to control allows you to progress as rider, because you are not fighting for control.

Pop: The Heritage has a surprising amount of pop for a Big Mountain board , this is a great feature. Paired with the fact the stiffness of the board it is stabile when landing jumps and making quick turns. The pop is felt when doing ollies and nose rolls, the spring in both the nose and the tail give this board it’s freestyle element mixed with all mountain riding.

Switch : The heritage rides switch with ease, and make landing switch a treat due to the superior control and ease of turning. The pop also allows for ease when riding switch and going to and from switch with ease at high speeds and on irregular snow conditions and various terrain types.

Overall Impression: I was very impressed with the way the Never Summer Heritage rode, it had all factors I look for in a board. Great responsiveness, pop and stability with an element of freestyle as well. This board handled all conditions and handled them well. It was great in the trees, park , groomers, moguls and all conditions between. The board is built well and is made in Colorado a huge plus. Not that you will ever break your, but if you did, you could go to the factory and talk to the guys who built your board. With the multi year warranty they would replace it on the spot and keep you from having to call some automated help line to get your warranty serviced.
