Perhaps the most versatile board in Never Summer's line, the new Women's Proto Type Two Snowboard was built for hard-charging ladies who like to bomb steeps, slash pow, and boost big airs in the park—sometimes all in the same day. It blends a poppy profile, an asym sidecut, and a perfect mid flex to help you do it all with confidence.
Ripsaw Rocker Camber is similar to the original R.C. profile, but with enhanced camber zones that give it a poppier, more responsive feel and improved edge hold so you can tackle technical steeps and slay big jumps.Extended transition zones at the main contact points offer a more forgiving feel and help the board plane in powder more easily, and the Vario Power Grip sidecut utilizes multiple radii to create additional contact points for reliable edge when conditions are icy. It also has a deeper heel sidecut so your heelside turns feel just as powerful as your toeside carves.
Inside the board, lightweight poplar is fused with burly birch to deliver strength and pop with minimal weight. Carbon laminates enhance response without making the board feel like a stiff plank. The RDS 2 damping system absorbs vibrations and improves stability to give you greater control through variable terrain. If you want a board that does a lotta bit of everything really well, then this board is just your type.

I tried this board at a demo last spring up at Snow Basin resort in Ogden, UT. And to be honest, I fell more deeply in love with Never Summer as a whole company. I've been a huge fan of their boards for YEARS, my first was a NS Infinity and I've just kept coming back for more. I've ridden the Raven, Infinity and Aura and loved them all, but this Proto Type 2 really takes the cake for me.
I'm 5'7" 150lbs and not a park rider. I like big, all mountain adventures and have a need for speed while cruising around. The stability I felt on this thing while holding an edge was unreal! There was so much less leg fatigue and I honestly felt like there was less chatter with speeds as well.
Heel holds and turn were a breeze thanks to the asymmetrical design. That also makes it nice with teaching myself switch since I ride at a 15, -15 stance the heel edge being set means I don't need to adjust bindings at all to force my learning curve.
All in all, it's a well thought out WOMEN'S board that helps the ladies keep crushing the slopes and keeping up with the boys. Well done Never Summer!
By far my favorite
I was lucky enough to try the new Never Summer Women's Proto Type Two at Sierra at Tahoeâs demo day and again at another demo day. I tried a 139 (spring park day) and 142 (powder day). I am 5'2 with a small frame. If I had to choose one size I would go for the 139.
The all new Womenâs Never Summer Type Two Proto is an all mountain asym twin. In my opinion there is nothing this board canât handle. From warm spring park days to deep powder lines.
I was worried that this board would be too stiff since I was riding a flexy freestyle specific snowboard but this board is still fun and playful. It simply feels more stable. It is easy to spin and butter around on. I was able to spin 540s with ease.
The biggest change I noticed riding this board is how much easier it is to make a heel turn. This board has a deeper sidecut on the heel edge. It makes a huge difference. While riding my local mountain there were heel edge side hits that I could not get to before but on the Type Two Proto I have the speed and edge hold to get to those side hits. This is a game changer because it just gives me more opportunities. Simply put, you don't need to edge as hard and you feel more stable when making heel turns. Since I use less effort to make heel turns, I find it easier to ride switch as well.
I feel that this board did very well on rails and boxes. It was easy to 50/50 and keep straight. It also felt very stable and locked in on boardslides.
The TruGrit Topsheet looks amazing. It reminds me of sandpaper or grip tape. In the sun it looks like it sparkles or shimmers. I got a lot of compliments on how the board looks. You would think it would be more grippy than other topsheets but I felt it had about the same grip. Not that this matters since I am a huge fan of Crab Grabs, which I recommend with any board--they just make it easier to grab.
I love the pop of this board, not only off kickers and side hits but also getting up onto features. I could definitely ollie higher on this board. This amazing pop took me a little time to get used to but once I did, it was obviously a plus. I was able to boost higher without even trying. The board does the work for you.
This board floats on the powder like a dream even with my centered park stance. My back leg was not killing me even through I ride in Tahoe where the powder can be heavy at times.
It cuts right through the chop and chunder. It feels so stable and does NOT buck you around on the bumps. It is amazing to ride such a poppy board that still has great dampening. This is a hard combination to find in a board.
Out of all the boards that I demoed from Never Summer and other companies, it was by far my favorite. I ended up getting this board. Now I just need it to snow. Hope this helps.
