Description

All-mountain freestyle nirvana.

Short for prototype, the Never Summer Proto HD Snowboard represents the very best in top-shelf board technologies, creating an enlightening all-terrain freestyle ride that rips icy terrain parks and fresh, powdery chutes. This twin-shaped board delivers excellent float through the deep stuff without any set-back, thanks to its Extended Transition Rocker Camber profile. Based off Never Summer's Rocker Camber profile, the board features rocker underfoot with camber starting just past the bindings, continuing into Extended Transition Zones. Coupled with the board's low-profile tip and tail, these Extended Transition zones give the Proto HD its fluid edge-to-edge feel, also increasing float through deep, bottomless powder.

Keeping the Proto HD riding nice and smooth, Harmonic Dampers are placed at the tip and tail, helping to reduce high-speed chatter without deadening pop and liveliness. The Perforated Rocker Pad absorbs vibration between the feet, and Carbonium laminates keep the board torsionally responsive when you're hauling at blistering speeds. Add in the super-fast Durasurf XT Sintered 5501 base and ice-gripping Vario Power Grip Sidecut for an all-mountain freestyle ride that doesn't compromise edge hold for powder floatation.

Here's what others have to say...

I ride size 11 Burton Ambush boots with footprint reduction so they fit like a size 10 and L/XL Union Atlas bindings. I really want one of these boards, but don't know what size I should get (waist size of the board), any help?

Responded on

Typically at size 11 you should be on a "wide" model board (even in burton boots). So you may be better off with the Proto HD X. Size 8 boots and size Small Burton bindings are a perfect fir for me on the 152 HD (24.4 cm waist width), so even at the 25.5 cm waist width, the 160 HD may be narrow for you.

One of the best boards i've ever shred!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I have been riding for about 20 years and I have seen and done it all. I used to be a park rat, but these days I have been getting out into the back country a lot more. I bought this board because my previous board, after about 8 years, finally bit the dust. The first day I rode the NS Proto, I couldn't believe what a difference the rocker camber made! Coming from an old Never Summer SL model, it seriously made such a huge difference! I have never been that stoked on a board the first day riding it! I have hit everything from chop to deep pow, rails to jumps and I couldn't be more pumped on this board's performance! I would highly recommend this board for people who don't stick to one part of the mountain. I can fully agree that this board is truly the swiss army knife of snowboards! I have always loved Never Summer and this board verifies my passion! Get after it!

This board sounds beast! Anyone ride it?

I bought the 2013 and it doesn't look like anything changed. Rode it at Whistler and Brighton with Union Contact Pro bindings. Great all around board. Good pop, soft landings, and good float. I've become a huge never summer fan. I own an SL for deep POW, but won't hesitate to take this one anywhere. Also own a Burton Super Hero for parks and tooling around on the east coast, but if I'm taking one board, this one is definitely it.

I just rode this board from a demo... This board can take anything from runs to park. I'm planning to get this board myself soon. One of the best boards that can handle the mountain and the park.

I own 5 Different Snowboards. Proto HD is my most favorite board among them. It has great Pop and good flex to handle park, and also amazing responsiveness and enough stiffness for carving.
Plus NeverSummer is famous for its durability. You will never be wrong to buy Proto HD. Trust me
