REVOLUTIONARY TWIN THAT MIXES FREESTYLE BALANCE WITH A SURF INSPIRED RIDE

A new addition to Never Summer's Shaper series, the Shaper Twin has been designed to make you rethink the whole freestyle board genre. Built around a unique twin tip shape, it features 10mm of Taper, a centred stance and the surf-inspired Fusion Rocker Camber profile; creating a remarkable snowboard that blends the very best of freestyle balance and control with that shaper series surf inspired ride. With fantastic performance in the park combined with trench digging edge hold and insane float in the pow, the remarkable Shaper Twin will make you rethink your whole approach to snowboarding.

Rider Style
Experienced freestyle riders who are looking for the balance of a park board with the trench digging drive of a piste charger and the backcountry float of a powder board.

Shape Overview
As part of Never Summer's Shaper series, the Shaper Twin's game-changing shape turns freestyle board design on its head. Combining a unique tapered freestyle inspired twin shape with an innovative all-terrain inspired early rise diamond nose and tail profile; the Shaper twin delivers that ideal combination of freestyle balance with freeride float. Complementing this innovative shape is the Vario Power Grip sidecut. Formed by combining a deeper sidecut in front of the insert packs with a shallow sidecut under the feet and a straight section in the centre it increases pressure into the most critical parts of the edges adding control and response in all conditions.

Profile
Key to the Shaper Twins unique surf-inspired ride is the Shaper Series specific Fusion Rocker Camber profile. This overall rocker profile blends an extended transition area in the front of the board with traditional camber under the front foot and a more aggressive Ripsaw Camber under the back foot. This unique profile delivers effortless float in the nose, but more importantly, it adds a powerful and dynamic drive to the board, delivering that trench laying piste performance.

Construction
Internally the Shaper Twin doesn't hold back when it comes to construction and heading this up is the NS SuperLight wood core. This lightweight core combines a custom blend of wood species to create one of the lightest and most durable cores on the market. This is then reinforced with Never Summers advanced structural layers which are formed from a combination of playful Bi-Lite glass and STS pre-tensioned glass running the length of the effective edge. These create a solid and stable ride while still allowing the board to be a little bit more progressive through the middle. Now as the Shaper Twin is all about maximising that surfy ride, it utilises Never Summer's Carbon Max Laminate technology. This combines a top and bottom carbon matrix to optimize response and power, resulting in a lightweight yet powerful configuration that provides customised torsional rigidity and energy transfer without sacrificing feel.

Base
This super-fast, durable sintered base has been designed specifically for high-performance boards. Just the right amount of graphite has been added making the DURASURF XT SINTERED 5501 BASE the fastest base in the line.
