Never Summer SL 2012: Snowboarding Fun All-Year Round
It’s indeed never summer if you have this board around! The Never Summer SL is the best tool to ride in both hardpacked to softpacked conditions, even with some heavier powder on certain parts. This newer and better board boasts of softness in its midst for quickness while it is long in length for a consistent good feel. The board has RC technology in its core. RC is a mix of rocker and camber. Combined, you get a forgiving board that fully supports your every move.
Fully supportive, the Never Summer SL is extremely stable. If used on the groomers, the SL absorbs a lot of the dampness to keep you going instead of being stuck around. With the RDS @ Dampening System, it can handle speed and even a tough charging from an all-mountain terrain while maintaining freeride vibration absorption and freestyle creativity. But no matter how fast you go, you remain perfectly in place because of the little extra edge found in the center.
One of the best features offered by the Never Summer SL is the fact that it easily engages turns. It is very consistent and makes gradual changes to prepare you for a successful turn. It is torsionally soft to help you get a quicker response; however, it is not lighting fast so you get to prepare. This is an advantage that would really help intermediate riders.
If you use the SL in the park, you will marvel at the ease with which you can do pops and switches on it. The carbon addition is there and it helps give the board liveliness while riding for park laps. As for the switch, it’s a directional twin but some adjustments need to be in order when it comes to setback stances and sidecuts.
All in all, the SL is a pretty popular board but with good reason. If you enjoyed its older version, you will love the 2012 release. Its upgrades only improved the board in numerous ways such that it has become a good ride favorite for intermediate to advanced riders.
