Never Summer Premier F1 - 2012


The fact that the Premier F1 is the dampest snowboard that Never Summer makes speaks volumes about this big mountain charger. Carbon V reinforcement keep the torsional stiffness solid for great edge hold and the RDS 1 elastomer foil dampening system will keep that edge from skipping out on sketchy snow conditions. Like all of their snowboards, Never Summer has slapped a 3 year warranty on the F1 so you can be sure it is built to last.

Manufacturer's Description:

Our high performance Premier F1 takes freeride technology to a whole new level! The Carbon V-Twin Laminate Technology and custom F1 Elastomeric Stabilizers underfoot increase edgehold and vibration absorption in any snow condition. With the NS freeride technology, the Premier F1 will power through anything in its path keeping you on edge and in complete control at any speed. The modified NS Custom Flightcore also incorporates a multi-flex profile giving the Premier a powerful tail flex and a more responsive mid flex. For unmatched carving ability, powder floatation and effortless turn initiation, the F1 has arrived.

Well, after a ton of reading and enjoying previous rides on Never Summer Boards I went with the F1 Premier in a 165.  Im 6’1 215lbs.  Boots are K2 Thraxis series 2 boots and Drake Mentor Bindings. (yes I know they are old lol) One trip to Whitefish with a ton of fresh snow every morning.  This thing is a rocket ship in the fresh stuff and very fast on the groomers, never once washed out on me at speed and held its edges beautifully, I have never carved this hard before with this much confidence.  I found flat basing on the hard pack a little sketchy at times, not scary or out of control, but enough to keep your mind wary of the ride.  Runs through the tight trees was a little more work as expected as it is a pretty stiff board.  Natural drops, jumps were a peice of cake and a ton of fun, this thing is damp, smooth and stable.  I did not try any park or pipe as this is not what the board is for.   Second trip, Kicking Horse BC.  Wow, I love this frickin board, dropping in the bowls was amazing, stability, speed and effortless control in the pow!!!  Ripped through the rough stuff and kept on going.  Trees are more roomy here and this was the perfect board for my style, fast, responsive and plenty of pop for the natural jumps and drops.    I also love the clean look of the top sheet on this ride, lots of compliments from lift operators and other riders, not that it makes a board but better than riding on something that looks like the dog threw up on it lol.   Happy with this board, would recommend in a heart beat to a freeride all / big mountain kind of guy. Going to pick up a pair of Flux SF45’s for the next trip.
