Shreds the entire mountain with a freestyle focus.
Designed with top-shelf materials, the Never Summer Proto HD X Snowboard represents the very best in top-shelf board technologies, creating an amazing all-terrain ride that rips icy terrain parks and fresh, powdery chutes. It's built with a wider waist than the regular Proto HD, meaning that the Proto HD X gives big-footed riders (size 11 and up) a proper platform for their all-mountain domination.
This twin-shaped board delivers excellent float through the deep stuff without any set-back, thanks to its Extended Transition Rocker Camber profile. Based off Never Summer's Rocker Camber profile, the board features rocker underfoot with camber starting just past the bindings, continuing into Extended Transition Zones. Coupled with the board's low-profile tip and tail, these Extended Transition zones give the Proto HD X its fluid edge-to-edge feel, also increasing float through deep, bottomless powder.
Keeping the Proto HD X riding smooth, Harmonic Dampers are placed at the tip and tail, helping to reduce high-speed chatter without deadening pop and liveliness. The Perforated Rocker Pad absorbs vibration between the feet, and Carbonium laminates keep the board torsionally responsive when you're hauling at serious speeds. Add in the lightning-quick Durasurf XT Sintered 5501 base and ice-gripping Vario Power Grip Sidecut for an all-mountain freestyle ride that doesn't compromise edge hold for powder floatation.

One of the best boards I have ever shred
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I have been riding for about 20 years and I have seen and done it all. I used to be a park rat, but these days I have been getting out into the back country a lot more. I bought this board because my previous board, after about 8 years, finally bit the dust. The first day I rode the NS Proto, I couldn't believe what a difference the rocker camber made! Coming from an old Never Summer SL model, it seriously made such a huge difference! I have never been that stoked on a board the first day riding it! I have hit everything from chop to deep pow, rails to jumps and I couldn't be more pumped on this board's performance! I would highly recommend this board for people who don't stick to one part of the mountain. I can fully agree that this board is truly the swiss army knife of snowboards! I have always loved Never Summer and this board verifies my passion! Get after it!
