Peak to park without skipping a beat.
The do-anything Never Summer Proto HD X Wide Snowboard provides all-mountain versatility to those with bigger feet. Bomber construction holds up to abuse from rails and cliff drops alike. The EXRC hybrid profile gives you the float you want in pow, and the edge hold and power that you need on hardpack.
New for this season is the Extended Transition Rocker Camber profile, which takes Never Summer's patented RC technology and makes the transition zones longer, resulting in more fluid turn initiation and increased float in powder. Carbonium Laminate Technology uses an advanced carbon matrix in the fiberglass to reduce weight while also increasing response and strength. The Carbonium Damping System (CDS) uses rubber foils to absorb vibrations without sacrificing response to smooth out the ride. Never Summer's signature Vario Power Grip sidecut uses additional contact points to help you hold and edge on the iciest of slopes.

Another Sick Board from NS
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
First of all let me say that I am really loyal for NS boards. They are a great company, they make a great product and I can tell you from personal experience they stand by their boards and the people that ride them. That being said, I picked up this board cause I was wanting to have something a bit more playful, ride some more switch, etc. This board is a true twin, so for that it is awesome. I got good float from this board when I have taken it out on pow days and I have found good stability and dampness on the un-pow days. Depending on your riding style, preferences, I would say this is a good 1 quiver board. I mean you can do everything with this board, not really a jib/rail board, but it would do. As a pipe board or aerials board, is really nice, a solid platform you can stomp huge airs and it is always right there when you need to get on it. If you are dropping bigger gnalier lines, I would say the cobra is a better all around fit. But this a great board, a tighter turn radius and a little more nimble than the Cobra while still keeping the stability. Almost as much float and realistically as much float as most people need. Enjoy.
he loves it!
a happy man playing hard!
Get your big feet on this board!
(this is from my review of the regular width Proto HD board)
I was able to demo the hell out of this board last week up at Brighton, UT and I was seriously blown away by the Proto.
Right off the bat, I could tell that the sintered base on this board was FAST, it felt like someone was pushing me down the hill.
Another stand-out feature was the CDS dampening system. Where other boards might slip and slide around, the Proto grips the snow and slices through crusty, tracked out snow.
The true twin shape makes this a blast to play a round on. A medium flex is supportive enough for when you're craving the need for speed, but will still allow for playful jibbing. Reverse camber between your feet gives you the playfulness while the positive camber outside of the bindings gives tons of pop.
If you're looking for a board to do it all, you should definitely keep the Proto HD in mind.
