Featuring graphics inspired by the Air Force's extremely badass, super-maneuverable F/A-22 Raptor fighter jet, the Never Summer Raptor Snowboard is nearly as fast and can turn even better, and it doesn't have the $150 million price tag. As Never Summer's flagship freeride machine, the Raptor was built to pick apart hairy lines, mach down groomers, and charge through chunder like it was powder.
The Directional Rocker Camber profile tweaks the standard RC profile by increasing the length of the camber in the front while shifting the rocker zone closer to the tail to improve carving performance, stability at speed, and powder flotation. Carbonium Laminate Technology uses an advanced carbon matrix in the fiberglass to reduce weight while increasing response and strength. The Carbonium Damping System (CDS) uses rubber foils to absorb vibrations without sacrificing response, giving it the smoothest ride in Never Summer's line. Never Summer's signature Vario Power Grip sidecut uses additional contact points to help you hold and edge on even the iciest of slopes.
