Ready to strike.

Never Summer's flagship all-mountain ride, the Cobra Snowboard, features a directional shape that floats through the deepest wind drifts and charges early-morning hardpack like a bat out of hell. The Carbonium topsheet and laminate offer powerful, responsive turns at minimal weight, while the hybrid Rocker & Camber profile gives you more than enough playfulness to session the jump line or spin off a rock drop.

Never Summer's Original Rocker Camber profile features rocker between the bindings for a catch-free feel on hardpack and float in pow, with camber outside the bindings to maintain pop and power. Carbonium Laminate Technology uses an advanced carbon matrix in the fiberglass to reduce weight while increasing response and strength. The Carbonium Damping System (CDS) uses rubber foils to absorb vibrations without sacrificing response to smooth out the ride. Never Summer's signature Vario Power Grip sidecut uses additional contact points to help you hold and edge on even the iciest of slopes.

I love this board

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

This board makes such a difference. I demoed it in 2013 then bought the 2014 and it keeps getting better. I have only ridden it 10-15 days due to the thin early season snow we had in SLC. I rode a NS Legacy prior to this board and this board is worlds better. It pushes through skier bumps, kill moguls and jumps up on powder. I would say I am an average rider and this board makes me above average. Does equally well on groomed runs, skied out bowls and powder in the trees.
Never Summer boards are tough and take a beating. I am 6' 2" 230 pounds and don't think twice about rolling over a downed tree. I have heard some hits that make me wince with a new board and the base shows nothing. There is nothing better than checking the base and coming away with a smile.
The carbonium top sheet allows you to be lazy as you don't even worry about your foot coming off the lift. I have never put a stomp pad on any of my boards, but imagine this is what one is like, on the whole board.
I do have the X, but am sure there is no difference.

im wearing size 10.5 burton ambush boots with now ipo large bindings, im thinking of getting 155 cm, but concerned about width, is it going to be fine without toe/heel drag ? or should i look for wider board ?

Responded on

I rode NS boards with size 11boots with no drag. its been my experience that wide boards are only necessary over size 12 and even than it depends on your stance angles. This board is awesome! I do still ride a wide board for the added float in powder, the agility on hardpack doesn't bother me that much.

I have same size boot on Cobra with Union Factory drag whatsoever...just smooth.

Best I've ever ridden

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Turns perfectly, sucks the chatter, does it all. I had high hopes for it but am still surprised at how well it rides. Highest recommend.

amazing board!!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I've rode my cobra 8 times this year through all sorts of conditions, ice, powder, choppy iced up hardpack, groomers, rocks and lowsnow conditions, and it dominates! So responsive, it feels natural to ride, like it just goes where you want it to! My friends who have been riding for 6 years, on big ol' boats hopped on the board and said they wanted to buy one if they buy an all mountain board.

Excellent directional snow shredder

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I got to take this board out for a demo at Brighton, UT the other day and was pretty darn impressed.
I don't typically ride directional boards, but after trying out the Proto HD, I figured I'd give this one a shot.

Like it's twin shaped cousin, the Cobra is a speed freak and just loves carving through any type of snow that is presented.
A slight set back gives you tons of float for when it gets deep, and it also gives you a little more surfy feel to make carving down hardpack feel a little more fluid.
Once you're done tearing up the powder, this board loves to get loose. Boost off big rollers and cat tracks witch confidence. The hybrid camber will give you tons of pop with a catch free landing.

This is an amazing directional board that inspires a ton of confidence and will take you anywhere on the mountain. Show those park-rats who's boss as you leave everyone else on the mountain in your dust.

Great all-mountain. Quick and stable.

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I did a demo of the SL, Heritage, and Cobra.

Cobra was my favorite - ridiculously quick and easy to turn, fairly stiff but not too stiff, lots of stability on the board, and REALLY fast.

It handles like a short board, but feels stable like a long board. It's pitched as a powder board but it gripped ice really well, and handled the crud just fine. I haven't tried it in powder yet but I'm sure it's great, since that's what people talk about with this board. It's definitely going to be my "one board".

Long story short, I'm an intermediate rider who was leaning towards the Heritage, but this board is so quick to turn and feels so stable, it really inspires confidence and I bought it instead.

As for the others: the SL is close to a twin design, and is pretty soft. I didn't feel very confident on it, because having a soft board means getting "kicked around" more. It seems good if you like some flex, and do all-mountain, but also a little bit of park time. The Heritage was a little more stiff, and therefore felt more stable to me, very good all-around board, more focused on all-mountain than the SL. The Cobra seemed to just take it to the next level on turning VERY quickly, and seemed to be on the same level of stability as the Heritage.

I'd say the Heritage is better if you want something that has a slightly more twin design. The cobra is much more directional, but I don't mind that. I bought one on the spot.

My other boards are a Ride Havoc (directional, extremely stiff, all-mountain, traditional camber) and a Sierra (Burton Flying V with a different topsheet, banana-style rocker). The Cobra has every single good quality of those boards and fewer of the bad. I don't ride park, so I'm going to use it for everything I do; it's my quiver killer. As long as you're not a park rider, it'll do everything else.

For reference: 5'10", 150lb, intermediate terrain rider, no park. I got the 155cm.

Hi there,

I'm 5'8", 160 pounds, with size 11 boots. What size Cobra would you recommend?

Thanks in advance!

Responded on

Hey! So if you're looking to ride park I would suggest going with the 155 with your height and weight. If you're looking for of an all mountain board go with 158 or 161 depending on your skill level and what you feel more comfortable with. If you'd like to talk more about your sizing hit us up in chat and we'd be happy to talk more about what size board would be best for you!

Responded on

I'm 5'10" 150lb with a 155cm. This is NOT a park board. For your height I'd go slightly shorter but don't overdo it.
