Never Summer Evo - 2012


Last year’s King of Jib winner the Never Summer EVO sees few changes for 2011, the most noticeable change is the blunting of the tips to reduce overall length and swing weight. For park and rail riders who still want a snowboard that will perform on the rest of the mountain regular and Switch, the EVO is a force to be reckoned with.

Manufacturer's Description:

Designed for optimum freestyle control, our new true twin blunt shape reduces material for a lower, more balanced swing weight while extending effective edge for more stability on takeoff and landing. The Evo features our Press Flex Core allowing riders to easily manipulate the board for a buttery fun and playful ride. Carbon VXR Laminate Technology extends carbon to the ends of the board for maximum pop and boost. Our EDS dampening system provides highspeed stability not usually found in a park/pipe board, while maintaining a light and lively ride.

2012 Never Summer Evo Video Snowboard Review

Well after riding last seasons model for a good part of the season, its one of my favourite boards. Mainly because it suits my style of riding so that doesn’t mean every tom, dick and harry is going to love it. I thought last season’s model was as good as it gets but this season’s is even better, without a doubt! The new sidecut definitely makes this board carve a lot more aggressively and hold a firmer edge. This year Never Summer has also added extra laminate rods in the tail to give the board that little extra pop, and pops all the better for it. This board can do it all and felt sweet all over the mountain and I honestly have nothing bad to say about the EVO.

The rocker camber makes pressing effortless but still offers the resistance on the nose and tail if you land slightly nose or tail heavy, because the majority of the flex comes from the rockered waist. I actually thought I was riding a 152 so there I was charging down the steeps and surprised at how well it coped at high speeds. It was only when I dropped it back that I realized I was on a 150! I was shocked by how well it handled! Calling a snowboard an all-mountain jibber is a bit of a contradiction of terms but this board honestly holds up to cruising through the park as it does cutting trenches into hard pack

Pop and stability from the nose and tail
A soft waist for easy presses
Extra laminate rods in the tail give more pop than last year’s EVO
A fast sintered base that blows extruded bases out of the water

I can’t fault this board what so ever!

Hey I was deciding between this board and a Rome mod rocker and a Rome agent rocker, I was looking for a board to spend a lot of time in the park and pie and some all mountain. I was really into this board but I wa looking to ride a 152 (I’m 5’9 and 160 pounds) But this increase on the effective edge is throwing me off.. I’m thinking about goingdown to a 150 if I get it but was wondering how it would hold up it pow.. And how it’s over all compares to mod rocker agent rocker and reverb rocker Thanks, Andrew
