I think that the "Carbonium" topsheet also has some snow shedding properties that are pretty beneficial, especially when skinning. I remember hearing that from somebody.


I can't really say that it's better. It's certainly no worse than a standard fiber glass top sheet. It does resist chipping better. Though if you do get a cut in it, it will tear versus chip. Overall, I like it better than fiberglass, but as with anything it has it's quirks.

Second season in - NS is still my the absolute favorite bc board. Carbonium is a tad beat up, but that's to be expected from a well used board :)

And that's why it's beat up: crampons, poles, crevasse rescue practice:

The new board was waiting for me when I got home from Texas on Friday. Got all my hardware mounted this weekend and now ready for its maiden voyage.

<3 Never Summer for responding new quickly. With my work travel I only missed a single day of splitting.

Are those Karakoram clips I spy on the board? and Voile tip/tail clip? Did you put those on or will next years Neversummers come with Karakoram clips?

It came with Chinese hooks just like the 2011/12 did. I've actually never used anything but K clips.

Post a photo of the base..... NS treated you right; though, no board lasts forever and through every gnarly day on the hill, especially hardcore backcountry.

Would be interesting to see the base, indeed - I'd expect it to be OK, as to me from the pic you posted it looks like you flexed it / landed too heavy back. Which is more rider fault, not the board's

+ 1 NS treated you well!

Here is the base, pretty much same as 2011/12 except red letters instead of the neon green.

Hey all,

Hooked on the spitboard phenom after touring in some of the Utah backcountry in Feb.

I'm back in my home land of Australia now and want to buy a Never Summer Sl split. Dogfunk and Backcountry.com don't ship Never Summer internationaly so i'd love help finding somewhere that did.

Any help on where i can get one of these split decks would be greatly appreciated.

thanks

If you are still looking a guy i know here in NZ got one from the cornice store an aussie store. i think they were about 1300AUD
