Having taken over from the mighty Proto HD back in 2016, the Proto Type Two is possibly one of our favourite boards of all time here at ATBShop. The do it all mountain twin snowboard is very capable in the park, piste, powder and or all over the mountain, one board to rule them all! Take the Proto core, add asymetrical sidecut and ripsaw rocker profile for grip and a few more tweaks and get that Never Summer Proto perfection.
Beautifully situated between Never Summer's Funslinger and Ripsaw, the Proto Type Two ticks all the boxes in terms of perfectly balance twin mid flex and all mountain freestyle destruction. Booting hills and ripping the park has never worked so well on one board! Be the first on the mountain and the last off with nothing else to say but you've seen and ridden it all!
With a slightly stiffer top sheet and using a bias heelside edge cut, you can powerfully carve your way down the piste, park or have a huge slashing session in the pow. This board of the future features Never Summer's SuperLight Wood Core, Ripsaw Camber Rocker Profile and unique Asym Vario Power Grip Sidecut making for some seriously outstanding performance! This hybrid design uses aggressive cambered zones underfoot pushing energy towards the boards transition areas for stability, response and aggression on demand. At the center, tip and tail ends of the board we have a more rockered profiling to offer a more forgiving ride and keep your nose out of the pow pow.
The Never Summer Proto Type Two Snowboard stowing away on the flagship of snowboard innovation and has soo many features that contribute to its incredible design. Supplying the perfect balance of energy loading and offloading, unmatching durability and lightweight feel, Never Summers Super Light Wood Core is reinforced using Carbon VXR Laminate Technology which is carbon fibre stringers driving under the inserts and in to the tip/ tail ends of the board. This enhances the torsional response of the board while NS's Carbon Max Laminate Technology uses carbon X stringers directly under the inserts to add stability at high speeds as well as a more powerful edge to edge transition. The board is then wrapped with a bi-lite fiberglass for bullet proof strength, durability and lightness. To even out the balance of aggression the board also features a RDS 2 Dampening system with Elastomeric underfoot stabilisers to reduce chatter and vibrations. Lastly but certainly not least we have Never Summers finest and fastest engine to this absolute machine; a superfast Durasurf XT 5501 sintered base that delivers warp speed results in a huge variety of conditions that will leave any rider of any discipline stoked to the core.
If you liked the feel of the Funslinger but wanted a more all mountain board than just the park destroyer then the Never Summer Proto Type Two is the board for you!
