You know what they say about big boots: wide snowboards.
A wider version of the SL (Never Summer's all-mountain freestyle kingpin), the Legacy Snowboard is built for big-footed rippers who ride everything from pow stashes to groomers to park laps on a daily basis. A snappy carbon layout, moderate flex, and RC hybrid-camber profile deliver a stable, agile, and floaty ride that kills anything you put in front of it.
The NS Custom Flightcore fuses premium hardwood and ultralight softwood laminates with vertically layered elastomeric dampers that actually increase vibration absorption as you go faster while maintaining incredible pop and response. Never Summer's Original Rocker Camber profile features rocker between the bindings for a catch-free feel on hardpack and float in pow, with camber outside the bindings to maintain pop and power. Dual carbon Vs in the laminate help transfer more energy to the tip and tail for better response without making the board too stiff for buttering and pressing. Never Summer's signature Vario Power Grip sidecut uses additional contact points to help you hold and edge on even the iciest of slopes.

i have a size 10.5 or 11 boot...would this board be too wide if I got the 166 or 163?
No, I suggest that with any size 10.5 and up that you go with a wide board. It will eliminate toe and heel drag and keep your edge locked in the snow.
I wear a size 10.5 boot and have gone back and forth on the wide vs regular board. No, at even an 11 you do not need a wide board. Yes this board will work for you! The difference you will notice will be on groomers, hardpack and deep snow. Wide boards offer more float and thus a surfier feel will on new snow.
A narrow board will be much more nimble, easy to initiate turns on.
Never summer boards feel bulky in wide. Personal opinion! Granted I love to take out my Raptor X on good days. But I wasn't a fan of the Heritage X or Revolver.
Hope that helps!!
Where it's at...
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
Went with the boys in Colorado who know how to make snowboards. In my area there's a lot of people who run at the signs of price tags where I'm a firm believer in you get what you pay for. Spendy compared to some other boards but a huge improvement over my last one. I've got a couple friends who ride NS and they've stayed loyal after their first one. Having rode mine a few times now I see why. First it's wide enough for my size 13 boots, haven't lost it from toe or heel drag yet. Second it's forgiving, if you're riding it flat and it twists a little it's not going to buck you off. You get a little leeway to correct before you're face down. Third it's solid. Good mix between firm and soft, beefy while still feeling lightweight. All around a very fun board. Playful enough for the parks yet serious enough for some high speed runs, and I feel less fatigued. No regrets about this purchase, made snowboarding even more fun for me. Running K2 Company bindings and K2 Ryker boots on this stick.
what bindings do you suggest with this...
what bindings do you suggest with this board?
Answering that question is a little on the tough side just because bindings are a component that involves a lot of personal preference.
Although this an All Mountain / Freeride / Park board, what is your style of riding & terrain you most frequent?
I have brands I can recommend based on features, style, compatibility and customer service (ROME SDS - amazing company).
Any info you can provide will help us get you the best bindings for your style of riding.
