Have your cake and eat it too.
Between the season pass and the post-shred beer fund, you can't afford to buy a different board for all the types of riding you do. Lucky for you, Never Summer designed to Proto Type Two X Snowboard to be the most versatile board in its line, so you can pop in and out of the park, weave through trees, and send it into pow all on one board. 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 hold 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.

Best one yet
Best proto yet for all mountain riding. Holds it own from deep powder to jumps and rails.
Great Quiver Killer
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
This is a fantastic do it all board. Whether you are slaying it in the park or pow, the Proto will keep up. The board has a very pronounced mustache rocker that gives great pop and flex. A solid one board do it all for anyone to add to their arsenal.
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
This is my kids board of choice for everyday riding. Its wide enough for the deep days but also works great in the park and pipe.
If I use a size large binding would I have to go with a wide board? Looking at getting the 157 if that helps. Thanks
