LEGENDARY ALL TERRAIN FREESTYLE BOARD THAT REDEFINES PERFORMANCE

Blurring the lines between all-mountain charger and playful freestyle board, the Proto Type 2 is the perfect choice for experienced riders who are looking for a high-performance board that will let them ride absolutely everything on the mountain. Utilising some of the most advanced design and technology available and hand built in Never Summer's own Colorado factory, the Proto Type 2 delivers class-leading levels of performance while still managing to retain a more forgiving mid flex. This ensures no matter if you want to charge on it, or just have a lazy day playing around in the park; the Proto Type 2 will take it all in its stride.

Rider Style
Intermediate to advanced riders who are looking for a performance orientated freestyle inspired board that can handle the whole mountain.

Shape Overview
Built around a state of the art twin chassis, the Proto Type 2 features one of the most complex shapes available. Heading this up is the innovative asymmetric outline. This modifies the sidecut by adding a deeper profile on the heelside edge, offsetting the bodies inability to power up the heel edge to the same degree as the toe edge. This results in a more efficient overall ride, inspiring you to push the board and your riding to the limit. Complementing this innovative shape is the Vario Power Grip sidecut. Formed by combining a deeper sidecut in front of the insert packs with a shallow sidecut under the feet and a straight section in the centre, it increases pressure into the most critical parts of the edges adding control and response in all conditions.

Profile
To help deliver the Proto Type 2's versatile all-terrain ride, Never Summer fit their advanced Ripsaw Rocker/Camber profile. This overall rocker profile adds aggressive camber zones under the feet pushing out the rider's energy to the board's contact points. This gives a level of edge grip and hold on par with traditional camber, while still retaining that floaty and buttery feel you only get with a rocker.

Construction
Internally the Proto Type 2 doesn't hold back when it comes to construction and heading this up is the NS SuperLight wood core. This lightweight core combines a custom blend of wood species to create one of the lightest and most durable cores on the market. This is then reinforced with Never Summers advanced structural layers which are formed from a combination of playful Bi-Lite glass and STS pre-tensioned glass running the length of the effective edge. This creates a solid and stable ride while still allowing the board to be a little bit more progressive through the centre. Now lovely as it is to have a playful board, the Proto Type 2's legacy is built on class-leading performance, and the key to this is the powerful Carbon Max Laminate technology. This combination of top and bottom carbon matrix maximises response and strength, resulting in a lightweight yet powerful configuration that provides torsional rigidity and energy transfer without sacrificing control.

Base
This super-fast, durable sintered base has been designed specifically for high-performance boards. Just the right amount of graphite has been added making the DURASURF XT SINTERED 5501 BASE the fastest base in the line.
