Never Summer Mini Proto Snowboard - Kids' 2022

Sized down - but by no means watered down - the Never Summer Mini Proto Snowboard is a replica of the adult Proto Synthesis board designed for little shredders with big dreams. Crafted with Never Summer's Original Rocker Camber with an Extended Transition Area in the nose, the Mini Proto provides unmatched stability along with a do-anything, go-anywhere profile - perfect for young riders cutting their teeth all over the mountain.

Product Details

Rocker Type

Shock Wave Rocker CamberShock Wave Rocker Camber gives you the shock of explosive power and the fluid feel of riding a wave. SWRC features longer camber areas under the bindings for huge pop and vice like stability with a smaller rocker area in between that retains quick turn initiation and flotation. The hallmarks of the patented Rocker Camber Profile.

Extended Transition AreaNever Summer adds a small flat section in the snowboard profile that improves both turn initiation and powder flotation.

Flex

Flex Rating5 (1 Soft - 10 Stiff)

Dampness Rating5 (1 Lively - 10 Damp)

Shape

Vario Power Grip SidecutVario Power Grip Sidecut utilizes multiple radii creating extra contact points to enhance edge hold. A flat section in the rocker area provides a broad contact point when flexed, but allows the board to track straight and not catch when unbent. Flanking this straight section are two shallow radii, which provide the second and third contact points. Towards the ends of the sidecut are deep radii which render quick turn initiation and the final contact points

Low Profile Tip/TailA low profile in the nose and tail of the snowboard maximizes material contact with the snow for more powerful ollie/nollie pop and stability to your landings. Low Profile Tip/Tail also reduces the plowing effect in the nose for better glide to the next feature and superior float when it's deep.

Core

NS Superlight Wood CoreNever Summer uses a custom blend of wood species that was created to be the lightest weight yet durable core on the market. The NS Superlight Wood Core is CNC sanded in the custom wood working facility to a fraction of a millimeter. A tailored flex is perfected, giving their snowboards unequaled performance.

Laminates

Recluse Web Carbon LayupStrategically positioned to stiffen the board at the ends for edge hold pressure, spring, and stability. The Recluse Web Carbon Layup holds the integrity of the board's flex pattern over a long period and creates a powerful snap in and out of the turn.

Carbon Max Laminate TechnologyMore carbon equals more power and performance. The Carbon Max Laminate Technology combines an advanced top and bottom carbon matrix to maximize response and strength where it's needed most. The result is a lightweight yet powerful configuration that provides torsional rigidity and energy transfer without sacrificing the control a rider needs.

STS Pretensioned FiberglassThe world's best snowboard fiberglass, period. This advanced pre-hardened, pre-tensioned, layered laminate has added elastomer stringers between the 0 degree and 90 degree glass fibers (the length of the effective edge). This produces a stronger bond between the individual glass laminates giving our snowboards unmatched strength, edge hold and performance.

Bi-Lite FiberglassBi-Lite Fiberglass combines many of the strength characteristics of Never Summer's STS fiberglass with an ultralight glass fiber matrix. This delivers incredible freestyle and freeride performance without sacrificing durability.

RDS 2 Damping SystemThis lightweight system uses three narrower laminated dampening layers that provide the perfect combination of vibration, absorption, and stability. RDS 2 is the perfect balance of freeride stability and freestyle liveliness.

Elastomeric Underfoot StabilizersElastomeric Underfoot Stabilizers directly below the mounting area provide optimum vibration absorption and increase high-speed stability while reducing foot fatigue.

Harmonic Tip / Tail DamperHarmonic Dampers in the tip and tail take out a high percentage of residual vibration by quieting the nose and tail. This enhances stability at speed, in variable snow conditions and on board landings without deadening the liveliness and pop of the cambered areas.

Sidewalls

Sintered P-Tex SidewallsNever Summer was the first snowboard company to use and perfect Sintered P-Tex Sidewalls, and they've never seen one crack. Unlike conventional ABS sidewalls that have a tendency to crack in colder temperatures, Sintered P-Tex Sidewalls maintain their integrity at any temperature.

Base

Durasurf XT Sintered 5501 BaseCrown Plastics has developed an exclusive, super fast, durable sintered base specifically for higher end boards. Just the right amount of graphite has been added making the Durasurf XT Sintered 5501 Base the fastest Never Summer has ever used.

Edges

Full Wrap Metal Edge

Topsheet

Premium Coextruded Polymer TopsheetThe Premium Topsheet is a durable, lightweight, scratch and chip resistant fiber backed thermoplastic. The premium topsheets also provide more grip than other topsheet materials, working as a built-in stomp pad.
