If your idea of a terrain park run is: cornice to powder field to cliff drop to tight trees, the Never Summer Titan TX is your snowboard.
Big-footed freeriders will dig the Never Summer Titan TX Snowboard. This big-mountain snowboard brings aggressive mountain chargers a responsive and torsionally stiff ride that eats up any terrain. Thread the needle through the trees, and then open it up when you get to the bowl—the tri-radial sidecut keeps you stable at high speeds, initiates turns effortlessly, and provides a clean and snappy finish to your turn. Mad dampening gives you an ultra-smooth ride, and carbon laminates give you lightning-quick response—just think about turning, and you'll be on edge. The combination of Never Summer's FlightCore wood core and DuraSurf sintered 5051 base—Never Summer's fastest base—gives you unmatched control at high speeds.

When I received this beast I took it out almost immediately. It took a little while getting used to it, and I may contribute some of that to the binding adjustments. When that was all said and done, the feel and control just appeared out of nowhere, and I was happily shredding all season. Beautiful board, it's remarkably light, strong, and with that perfect mixture of rigidity and flexibility. This being my first NS board, I might be hooked.
All kinds of love
I only have a few days on this board, but I can honestly say it has made me a better rider. I would liken stepping up to this board to riding a full suspension mountain bike after years of being on a hardtail. It just makes going fast and technical easier. I used to pick my lines with care, now I just point down hill and charge. Carving is effortless. I tried to explain it to a buddy who looked at me like I was on crack, but there is a point in each turn where the board wants to pop you back to the other edge. At first I fought it and spent my first morning making sloppy, sketchy turns. By the afternoon I was working with the board and carving like I never knew I could. Riding powder is pretty sweet...just take a bit of weight off your downhill foot and the board smokes. I found my old board to be sloppy and slow in the powder, and at first I over-rode the Titan, digging into my powder turns and losing momentum. By the end of the day I just unweighted the front and leaned a little and the magic stick did the rest. If I could give this board 6 or 7 stars, I would. It's changed my whole perspective on snowboarding.
I've been riding Never Summers since 97 and this is their ultimate board. It holds a stiff edge like no other and yet floats in the deep stuff with relative ease.
