Description

Take your entire bag of tricks anywhere from park jumps to pow kickers.

Designed to combine the SL's versatility with the Evo's huckability, the Never Summer Proto CT Snowboard is re-defining the all-mountain freestyle category. With a Rocker Camber hybrid profile and a blunted true-twin shape, the Proto CT hauls ass through sketchy in-runs, spins off windlips, and lays waste to hardpacked parks with speed and stability.
  • R.C. (Rocker Camber) Technology places rocker between your feet and camber in the tip/tail for an overall forgiving and floaty ride that still pops and holds an edge
  • Carbonium topsheet is super scratch-and-chip-resistant, and also grippy enough to function as a built-in stomp pad
  • Vario Power Grip sidecut blends multiple radii for stability at all speeds, and adds extra contact points underfoot for improved grip in firm conditions
  • Carbonium Laminate Technology improves energy transmission for powerful turns and explosive pop off the lip
  • CDS Dampening System reduces high-speed vibration for a smoother ride
  • P-tex tip and tail protectors guard against delams, chips, and impacts

Bossy

I've heard loads of hype regarding Never Summer boards but never had any personal experience with them tell I took out this "Damn fine shred machine" as some would say. The camber profile on this board is technical but also can be enjoyed by less advanced riders. Definitely has a ton of pop and is super lively yet forgiving. The top sheet sheds snow like a friggin Boss and the Vario Power Grip sidecut cut gives you some extra grip but doesn't over grip like magne traction can feel like. One of the most impressive boards I have ever set foot on. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

Damn fine shred machine

It doesn't butter, but is spreads sweetness all over the hill if you know how to push your own limits. Took the Proto CT154 out on a 6in + day at Canyons in Park City and banged out a few tree lines with more than recorded snow levels, hucked a 15 footer along the way, laid down some deep turns on groomers, and got my fair share of face shots (considering the below-rad snow depth right now) on a steep, north side ridge. The CT has a lot of pop in the tail, but that equates to a stiffer feel overall. While a true park rider can kill a big line effortlessly thanks to the CT's blunted tip and tail and ultralight weight, it's not as forgiving as the EVO. On the other hand, it rides as well switch as regular, with the exception of a slightly shorter edge when you make switch turns. Bottom line, this CT is one you want to show off in public.

Thanks in advance.

Da REAL DEAL!

I finally got a chance to ride this board last weekend and here's my 0.02: (this is my very first NS board so bare with me.)

First Impressions:
-VERY LIGHT, I mean VERY LIGHT! I've ridden and owned last year's Custom and Custom X and I have to say it's prob a few ounces lighter than the Custy X. it was noticeably lighter than my friend’s Custom flying V.)
-LOVE the material of the top sheet, seems durable and ding-proof.

Conditions:
-Mid 20’s, sunny, icy. (no new snow for over 2 weeks.)

First Ride:
-This board’s got a nice mid-flex feel to it, NS’s rating of 5 is dead on. The board itself is little more “squirely” than other RC (Reversed Camber) boards I’ve owned and ridden. What’s really strange about this board is that, even though it’s more “squirely” I NEVER washed out on icy steeps. I have to admit the “Vario Sidecut” actually held an edge very well. (it’s no Magna-Traction but it’s pretty damn close.)
-the board/base is fast, not Custom X fast but fairly close. Turn initiations were easy, I thought it was very quick edge-to-edge and it definitely has that “RC” feel.
-Pop/Ollies were above average, I popped off some natural features a bit “higher” than usual. (then again, it could just be mental also…)

Since we(NW) haven’t received any new snow I didn’t get a chance to test it in POW.(I’ll report back soon as we get more snow.)

What I realized after the first ride was you HAVE to get over the “squirely-ness” of this board and trust your skills and what this board can do. Once I did that, the ride was amazing!!! I was bombing hills like I was racing in boarder-cross at the Xgames… haha! I feel like any intermediate to advance riders will benefit from this board because it’s so easy to ride and it could potentially help you progress quicker. I’ll report back after a few more days on it, but so far so good!

****UPDATED REVIEW 1/4/12***

HOLY SWEET BABY JESUS!!! Da Northwest finally got dumped on after 3+ weeks of zero precip!!! We were hit with back to back double digit POW days on 12/30/11 and 12/31/11. I was gonna take out my "Cuda" for these days but I thought I would try to ride this and see if it's any good in deeeeeep POW.

WOW!!!! this thing is simply amazing!!!! it floats extremely well, turns well in deep pow, the more days I put on this the better this things feels!!!! the last time I felt this way about a snowboard was when i first stepped on the original SkateBanana... I have 2 other boards(Burton Barracuda and Libtech TRS) in my quiver and I don't think either one of them will see anymore snow this year... if you are/were a skater, you will absolutely LOVE this board!!! it is the closest thing to skating on snow. Fawkin' BADASS!!!! THANK YOU NEVER SUMMER for making this board!

Responded on

15 degrees on both feet is usually good for me but ive heard some people do 12 and 12 or even 20 and 20, but highback wise if your doing freestyle just do 0 and 0.

Hybrid

An aggressive all mountain twin--1 part Evo and 1Part SL. The CT also has that same top sheet as the Heratige. The CT side cut ends very late on the board and the nose is very small and blunted. Getty up!

This a unique look and texture (zoom in). The CT (157) is light weight, has great graphics and camber/rocker combination. I can't wait for the snow to fall!

Is there anywhere to Demo the Proto CT...

Posted on

Is there anywhere to Demo the Proto CT anywhere in or around Vail, I am curious which board this is similar to riding. I really like the Heritage, but this board seems like it has lots of potential.
