2024 Never Summer Proto Slinger Snowboard
FREESTYLE ASYMMETRICAL TWIN
The go-to snowboard of Sam Klein, one of the most technical freestyle snowboarders on the planet, the soft-flex, twin tip Proto Slinger features Never Summer's Shockwave Rocker Camber Profile for massive pop and asymmetrical sidecut for balance edge to edge. Press Flex core allows for locks into presses and on rails. Not only is this the end-all be-all of freestyle snowboards, it also excels where a freestyle snowboard isn’t supposed to — everywhere else on the hill.

Shock Wave Rocker Camber - Shock Wave Rocker Camber features extended camber zones underfoot towards the tip and tail for explosive pop and solid stability, with smaller rocker areas that retain quick turn initiation and enhance floatation.
Extended Transition Area – Never Summer adds a small flat section in the snowboard profile that improves both turn initiation and powder flotation.
Dampness Rating– 4/10
A softer flex for added press-ability and an overall more playful ride.
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.
Designed for Men
