In the Chinese Zodiac 2021 is the year of the Ox, but Never Summer have decided that 2021 is the year of the Woman. Brand spanking new for this season, the Never Summer Women’s Proto Synthesis is the versatile all-mountain twin we’ve been dreaming of. Breathe it in ladies, because the future is female.
Never Summer’s reputation for creating high quality and durable boards began back in the 80s, and they’ve been focusing on using the best materials and the most innovative tech ever since. The Women’s Proto Synthesis is no exception, handcrafted in Colorado and chock full of the dynamic energy we’ve come to expect from the NS line.

With its new All-Mountain Freestyle shape, this true twin charger features their new Shockwave Rocker Camber profile, made up of extended camber sections underneath the feet and shortened rocker sections in between the bindings. The benefits of this are tenfold, think increased edge hold on dicey conditions and steeper terrain, and floaty tips when it’s been dumping. The small flat transition area at the nose and tail has the Never Summer stamp of approval allowing riders smoother turn initiation and less chance of hooking up in choppy terrain.
Fitted Carbon Stringers sit in an x-formation in between the bindings to maximise all-mountain charging. The more carbon they cram in, the more power and performance the rider will see out the board. If you’re open carving down a hardpack piste with a sprinkling of fresh on top, these carbon beams will have you slingshotting out of one carve to the next.

This board has been built with versatility in mind, Harmonic Dampeners have been fitted in the nose and tail to keep you solid and stable when riding at speed, coupled with materials to absorb high impact when you’re stomping big landings so you can keep riding till last lifts without the dreaded thigh burn.
