Sh*t is Hot - 2013 Never Summer Preview

For the last two to three seasons the uncrowned king of Colorado snowboard manufacture Never Summer has been scooping more industry and magazine awards than you can throw a tree trunk sized stick at. At the forefront of the hybrid camber revolution the brand has certainly had its fair share of imitators all panning for the same Rocky Mountains gold dust which makes Never Summer decks sell like hot cakes. This year NS releases the Cobra, another addition to its now famous Carbonium series, ruggedly constructed snowboards with a braided carbon composite topsheet that packs great pop and unmatched dampening into classic NS shapes. The Cobra takes its design from the extremely popular SL’s set-back, directional, all-mountain shape and its upgraded materials spec from the Proto CT.

Tom Beaton from Never Summer UK was on hand to explain readers how the Cobra sits in the 2012/13 line. Tom couldn’t resist showing us the new EVO with its matt topsheet and Halloween themed graphics. Fortunately for you the SB-RV testing crew managed to get on-board a Cobra and a 12/13 EVO this season, so watch out for the reviews which should be posted around the end of September.
