Not completely sure when the snowboarding phenomenon came on the scene – I have a hard enough time with two skis and two poles so it slipped right past me – but there is no problem conceding that it’s here and here to stay. Never Summer is one of the bigger names when it comes to board quality and craftsmanship and with their Proto CT and CTX, they’ve upped the swing and stability factors on the ground.
Most of the credit belongs to the Carbonium Damping System, which proves this is not your general store variety, but a board designed by geeks of the craft. The system reduces vibration but it also allows a balance between high speed stability and control. Still doesn’t make me want to go hurtling down a mountain, but for you more adventurous types, that’s another story.
