DESCRIPTION

The Never Summer Atom Split embodies a new form of backcountry split boarding. It is one of the lightest splitboards ever developed without sacrificing durability. The new special Touring Ripsaw Rocker Camber profile makes it possible to master every incline and conquer every slope. This profile has an extensive camber down to a flat zone directly under the touring binding. This provides incredible hold on the ascent and a lot of stability on the descent. The high nose of the board and a taper of 9 mm make the board perfect for use in deep snow and ideal for all those days that you have only dreamed of before. Preload / Shape

  • Touring Ripsaw Rocker Camber: has improved camber areas for aggressive edge grip and huge pop while maintaining the versatility of the original rocker camber
  • Co-extruded polymer top sheet
  • Directional: classic, versatile snowboard shape; longer nose for more bounce on the tail; enough buoyancy, flow and controllability for every terrain

Core / Laminate / Sidewall

  • Pixi Dust wood core: was specially developed for the split boards; With a tailor-made mix of light types of wood and birch hardwood bridges for durability, they have created a core that lowers the touring weight while ensuring a safe and powerful ride
  • STS Pre-Tensioned Fiberglass: is an advanced pre-hardened, pre-stressed, multi-layer laminate that has added elastomer strings between the 0 degrees and 90 degrees of fiberglass (the length of the effective edge); this creates a stronger bond between the individual glass laminates, which gives the snowboards unsurpassed strength, edge grip and performance
  • Bi-Lite fiberglass: combines many of the strength properties of STS glass fibers with an ultra-light glass fiber matrix; this delivers incredible freestyle and freeride performance without compromising durability.
  • Carbon Max Laminate Technology: combines an advanced top and bottom carbon matrix to maximize responsiveness and strength where it's needed most; the result is a lightweight, yet powerful configuration that provides torsional rigidity and energy transfer without sacrificing the control a rider needs
  • Sintered P-Tex Sidewalls: in contrast to conventional ABS sidewalls, which tend to crack at colder temperatures, sintered P-Tex sidewalls retain their stability at any temperature

Base / edges

  • Durasurf XT Sintered 5501 Base: exclusive, super fast, durable sintered base especially for high-end boards
  • Vario Power Grip Sidecut: uses several radii to create additional contact points and improve edge hold; a flat section in the rocker area provides a wide point of contact when bent, but when not bent it allows the board to go straight and not get caught

Binding assembly

  • 9 mm taper
  • 2x4 inserts: the 2x4 pattern allows a finer adjustment of the binding distance

Features

  • Phantom Hercules hook
  • P-Tex Tip / Tail Protection: UHMW plastic, or P-Tex, is a softer molecular material that not only seals and protects the wood core, but also absorbs vibrations and shocks
  • Extended transition area: a small, flat section in the snowboard profile that improves both cornering and floating in the snow
  • Elastomer underfoot supports: directly below the assembly area, they ensure optimal vibration damping and increase stability at high speeds while reducing foot fatigue
  • RDS 2 damping system: this lightweight system uses three narrower laminated damping layers that provide the perfect combination of vibration, absorption and stability; is the perfect balance between freeride stability and freestyle joie de vivre
  • Early rise nose
