by: Never Summer

Anyone who's spent more than 5 minutes around youngsters knows that they want nothing more than to be like the "big kids." That's precisely why the Mini Proto Snowboard came to fruition -- the bite-sized version of the now legendary NS (Full-Size) Proto. Crafted using ultra durable SuperLight Wood core, with versatile rocker/camber contours to enhance edge hold when you need it, and turn initiation when you don't. The Mini Proto is the ultimate board for skilled young riders looking to up their game across the entire mountain.

Product Details

Rocker Type

Original Rocker Camber  This profile is shaped for a surfy and playful feel while maintaining superior performance and versatility.

Extended Transition Area  A small flat section in the snowboard profile that improves both turn initiation and powder flotation.

Flex

Flex Rating  Mid

Dampness Rating  Mid

Shape

Vario Power Grip Sidecut  Vario Power Grip Sidecut utilizes multiple radiuses creating extra contact points to enhance edge hold. A flat section in the rocker area provides a broad contact point when flexed, however when unbent allows the board to track straight and not catch. Flanking this straight section are two shallow radii which provide the second and third contact points. Towards the ends of the sidecut are deep radius which renders quick turn initiation and the final contact points.

Low Profile Tip/Tail  A low profile in the nose and tail of the snowboard maximizes material contact with the snow for more powerful ollie/nollie pop and stability to your landings. Low Profile Tip/Tail also reduces the plowing effect in the nose for better glide to the next feature and superior float when it's deep.

Core

NS SuperLight Wood Core  Using a sustainable genetically modified Poplar wood fused with a durable Birch hardwood, NS has created the lightest weight yet durable core on the market. The NS SuperLight Wood Core is CNC sanded in their custom wood working facility to a fraction of a millimeter. A tailored flex is perfected, giving their snowboards unequaled performance.

Laminates

Bi-Lite Fiberglass  Bi-Lite combines many of the strength characteristics of STS Advanced fiberglass with an ultra-light glass fiber matrix. This delivers incredible freestyle and freeride performance without sacrificing durability.

Carbon Max Laminate Technology  Carbon Max Laminate Technology combines an advanced top and base carbon matrix to maximize response and strength where you need it the most. The result is a lightweight yet powerful configuration that provides torsional rigidity and energy transfer without sacrificing control.

Perforated Rocker Pad  Perforated to reduce weight, these thin elastomeric Perforated Rocker Pads are strategically located in the mid-section of the board. This absorbs the vibration between the feet and provides a buffer in the rocker area which is in continuous contact with the snow.

RDS 2 Damping System  This lightweight system uses three narrower laminated dampening layers that provide the perfect combination of vibration, absorption, and stability. RDS 2 is the perfect balance of freeride stability and freestyle liveliness.

Elastomeric Underfoot Stabilizers  Elastomeric Rubber Stabilizers directly below the mounting area provide optimum vibration absorption and increase high-speed stability while reducing foot fatigue.

Harmonic Tip/Tail Damper  Harmonic Dampers in the tip and tail take out a high percentage of residual vibration by quieting the nose and tail. This enhances stability at speed, in variable snow conditions, and on board landings without deadening the liveliness and pop of the cambered areas.

Sidewalls

Sintered P-Tex Sidewalls  Never Summer was the first snowboard company to use and perfect Sintered P-Tex Sidewalls, and they've never seen one crack. Unlike conventional ABS sidewalls that have a tendency to crack in colder temperatures, Sintered P-Tex Sidewalls maintain their integrity at any temperature.

Base

Durasurf XT Sintered 5501 Base  Crown Plastics has developed an exclusive, super fast, durable sintered base specifically for Never Summer's higher end boards. Just the right amount of graphite has been added making the Durasurf XT Sintered 5501 Base the fastest base NS has ever used.

Topsheet

TruGrit Topsheet

Premium Topsheet  The Premium Topsheet is a very durable, lightweight, scratch and chip resistant fiber backed thermoplastic. The premium topsheets also provide more grip than other topsheet materials, working as a built-in stomp pad. These premium topsheet materials include Never Summer's Carbonium Topsheet, Matte Topsheet and TruGrit Topsheet.
