West Bound Split All Mountain

Driven off the success of our solid West, we were compelled to make this all terrain slayer into a split. Our NS SuperLight Wood Core gives the West Split a very light touring weight with nimble underfoot performance on the descent. The Ripsaw Rocker Camber Profile gives the board tons of spring for hitting all the natural features the backcountry offers. Look no further; the next frontier of split boarding is in the West Bound.

Sensationelles Brett

Auf den ersten Blick sieht das Ripsaw Rocker Chamber Shape etwas komisch aus, eher wackelig und man fragt sich wie dieser Quatsch nun den Fahrspaß verbessern soll. Hat man es aber einmal an den Füßen möchte man es nie mehr abschnallen.

Das Rocker Chamber Shape hält eindeutig was die Entwickler versprechen, fahren wie mit Servolenkung - das Brett fährt von alleine und bietet eine Agilität, die man so nicht nochmal findet.

Auf der Piste wie im Powder brescht das Never Summer West Bound vor und schneidet die Kurven wie ein Messer die warme Butter, bei einem unvergleichlichen leichten Fahrgefühl und gutem Auftrieb auch im tiefen Neuschnee.

Testen konnte ich das Brett beim Alpin Camp von Splitboards Europe und Never Summer steht seitdem auf Platz eins meiner Wunschliste.

Auch im Aufstieg ist das Brett ein Traum. Man mag meinen, dass das wellige Rocker Chamber Shape die Kraftübertragung vermindert, doch genau das Gegenteil ist der Fall. Gute Kraftübertragung auch bei schlechten Schneebedingungen. Man merkt wirklich, dass in die Bretter von Never Summer einiges an Entwicklerenergie an die richtigen Stellen geflossen ist.

Einzige Mankos das, im Vergleich zu anderen High End Splitboards, relativ hohe Gewicht des West Bounds (oder ich bin einfach untrainiert - was auch nicht auszuschließen ist, bei den ersten Touren der Saison) und der Preis. Trotzdem eine deutliche Empfehlung für dieses Traumbrett, wer es mal an den Füßen hatte, wird das Never Summer West Bound nicht mehr aus dem Kopf bekommen, das ist sicher.

With Splitboards Europe since 2017/2018!

Building splitboards is not easy. This process of development has also been carried out by the snowboard forge Never Summer.
Because if you really want to convert your solid shape 1:1 as a split, you need a change or two in the finishing touches. So it's not surprising,
Never Summer has completely revised its Splitboard range and starts with the season 17/18 with new or revised shapes in the Splitboard range. The new representative for Never Summer in DE, Michael, has drawn our attention to the new shapes. Who knows us knows that we only sell what makes sense and above all 100% driving pleasure.
A shape must receive an average grade of at least 2 in various tests.
Never Summer passed this test in spring 2017 with flying colours and has been added to our range!

The 2017/18 season was a complete success!

As often, the shapen with the different. Rocker elements a very complex thing. If you look at the shapes of Never Summer, you get almost dizzy, how audacious and brave the guys build it. The good thing about it: You don't have to understand why it works the way it does. It still applies: Stand on it and drive. Topp or Flopp.

With the new Icon, Never Summer technology comes at a fair price!
