Step up to the SL and lay down the sickest line of anyone in your crew.
- Flightcore crafted with both lightweight and premium hardwood for a balance of strength and flexibility without weighing you down
- Vario Power Grip sidecut features deep, shallow, and no radius shapes for the ideal blend of bite, smooth turn transition, and stability in both long and short turns
- R.C. (rocker and camber) technology provides the smooth turns and float of rocker (middle) with stability and pop of camber (outside of binding mounts)
- RDS 2 rubber dampening layers increase stability and decrease vibration at high speeds and in choppy snow to keep you balanced
- Carbon VXR laminates from the binding mounts to the tip and tail add pop and support during takeoffs and landing
- Full-wrap edges reduce the chance of topsheet or base de-lamination and create an exceptionally durable board
- P-Tex tip and tail protector add even more durability

Demo'd the 153 and love the board. Also demo'd a 155 Altered Genetics and was not impressed & seemed like a boring board, not as poppy or as quick from edge to edge. Currently also ride a skate banana 152 and riders choice 154.5. I weigh 150 - 155, 5'7'', & have boot size 9. Debating between 153 or 155... Any suggestions if I want more of an all mountain board?

I am considering the SL or Legacy. I am 6'1, 165lbs. and I wear a size 12 DC Judge. I don't want toe-drag on the hardpack but I dont want a wide board if i can avoid it. Thoughts?
well DC is a low profile boot and if you don't want toe drag you could have a bigger stance angle like a 18 or greater might be able to keep toe drag to a minimum but i think your still going to have a little and this board is amazing so out of the two id go with the SL for sure.... hope that helped
Never riding anything else...
I have ridden Nitro and a Burton Custom. I am 5'10" and tried Demoing a 155 with Flow bindings and had issues with it being too slow and hard in the POW to turn in. I usually ride a 158 but that size wasn't available. So I went with a 161. I was going to get a Burton Custom Flying-V but didn't want to deal with their new EST bindings and the limited options available with EST... and have been told that the mounting disc for other bindings did not have the same effect as the EST- Burton is getting too proprietary.. plus had read reviews of this board wanting to turn too much on the fast down hill.I opted with Ride Nitrane Contraband bindings and the board is better than I could ever imagined. STABLE going fast, easy to turn in POW and floats on the fresh POW like a dream... in fact as I write this I can still feel myself in the fresh POW on this board through the trees... its pure heaven... it catches icy patches on the edges like it was made for it. I would say this is like driving a Ferrari... I also have a 2006 SL but doesn't have the new Rocker camber and other features that the 2011 has. Also, I called Never Summer and talked to Tony- these boards have a great 3 year warranty and awesome customer service. And they are made in Colorado... USA made. You cannot go wrong with this board. It is a dream board that you will never get tired of. This will take you through many many seasons! And when you jump and everyone sees that neon green they all know your riding a stick that is sick! And they all say eeewwww ahhhh wow- he is on a Never Summer dude and the will swoon over you... HA!

Can anyone comment, based on actual riding experience (not hearsay or what you read) on how this board compares to the Burton Custom Flying V? I am looking for a board just like this, but without the typical heavy weight of Never Summer boards.
Im looking at getting the sl or the legacy,...
Im looking at getting the sl or the legacy, how much wider is the legacy than the sl, im 5'8'' 165 to 170, with a size 10,
You really can't go wrong with either. I have the SL wear an 8.5 so I don't have to worry about toe hang. Not sure on the exact specs of the width. try contacting a gear head directly, they've got all the answers!
With a size 10 there's no reason to get the Legacy, the regular SL will be fine. I wear a 10.5 on my SL and I've got tons of room to spare.
no more 158?
no more 158?
Nope, sold out of the 158's at this point. Sorry I don't see that we are expecting any more.
The best all-mountain snowboard!
Never Summer is known as the best snowboard company that people have never heard of. Their boards are made to last, and you can't beat their 3 year warranty. I only had this board for a couple of days, and I can already tell you that this is the best board I have ever ridden. I rode many high-end boards from companies such as Burton, Lib-Tech, and Rome just to name a few. Lake Tahoe, CA got over a 100 inches of snow in November, so I had plenty of fresh powder to test out the board. The first thing I noticed was how easy it was to transition from edge to edge. Turning has never been so effortless. It floated through powder like a champ. I never had to lean back to lift the tip/nose. The board has a softer flex than most all-mountain boards that I rode, but it was still able to hold its edge on high speed groomers. The 2011 SL dropped some weight, and it was plenty light for the terrain park. I couldn't believe how much pop it had for a non-dedicated park board. Also, I didn't notice much of a difference riding switch. The rocker and camber technology is unmatched. This is the board to buy!
best board I've ever ridden
Love, love, love this board and I can't wait to ride it again - have the 155 with Ride Alpha mvmnt bindings and all I can say is that this board is legit. Super stable in all conditions (it was a bit icy late in the day at Keystone last weekend and I didn't have any trouble). The R&C tech makes it super easy to initiate an edge - you can really feel the point of contact underneath your feet. I'm still getting used to it as it was a bit awkward the first few runs - by end of the day my legs were thanking me as it makes carving so much easier on your legs.
2010/2011 Never Summer SL Snowboard
It hasn't snowed in days, so you're headed for the park. But you failed to check the weather forecast and don't know there is a major dump building up high. It's a darn good thing you decided to get the Never Summer SL Snowboard because this board is designed for shredders who attack every inch of the mountain with freestyle finesse and pow-slashing style.
I am debating between this and evo.
I am debating between this and evo.
I want a board that will kill it all- backcountry, groomers and park, but when I do go into the park I ijb more than jump. Should I get EVO or SL?
Does the SL have a bigger nose than tail?
Which board is lighter?
SL or the EVO?
This will be my 13th season of boarding, I love the SL! I've owned 6 boards 2 have been the SL. Great in all areas of the mountain and super fun to ride!
roll with the sl. lot better for back country. ive riden both an own a evo. evo is sick for park and groomers. the sl is a lil more stable for back country.
the evo seems slightly lighter.
you cant go wrong with either one of these sticks
i own both the evo and the sl... and to put it perspective, my lady who is like 5'6 140ish (haha) is riding my evo 153 while im rocking my SL-R 155.... evo is so smooth in comparison to other park boards-especially when carving into a section to get to or leave a park-nice in pow (if you get it a size larger) and bottom line this is one of the best companies out there to get a deck from. super soft but great edge hook up when you want it.
Is there no option between the white or...
Is there no option between the white or black topsheet?
Nope. Colors ship at random.
Don't worry about the color bro. This board is the sickest stick you'll ever ride!
BTW: It should be noted that the base color is also random (not guaranteed to be green as the pic is shown).
