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!

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 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?
January 25, 2011
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

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,

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.

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!

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.
Nope, sold out of the 158's at this point. Sorry I don't see that we are expecting any more.

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?

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.

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

BTW: It should be noted that the base color is also random (not guaranteed to be green as the pic is shown).

Don't worry about the color bro. This board is the sickest stick you'll ever ride!
