Never Summer Shaper Twin Snowboard Review

 

Our Never Summer Shaper Twin snowboard review. The Shaper Twin is part of the Shaper Series from Never Summer, a new, late season release that became available in mid Dec. 2017 in 153 and 156 centimeters sizes. This offering from Never Summer is classified as a freestyle twin park destroyer with strong switch riding capabilities. Boasting the Shaper Series Fusion Rocker Camber with 10mm of taper, and a centered stance. Never Summer’s fusion rocker camber has their trench digging Ripsaw Rocker Camber in the tail for superior edge hold, snappy turn initiation, and huge pop, the nose has their Original Rocker Camber for extraordinary float and a surfy feel.

This board has a really appealing design and is sure to turn heads when your riding it. Early season we were able to test the Shaper Twin’s carving, rail, and jibbing capabilities, by late December we were able to test the Shaper Twin on jumps, pipe and finally powder. It’s slightly stiffer than other freestyle boards in this category and has superior carving ability, we found the taper makes it so you can really lean back on your back foot to initiate a carve, especially when railing big turns or eurocarving. You get great pop from the Ripsaw Rocker Camber on jumps – take offs are smooth regular or switch, and you can stomp any landing. Even with the small amount of pipe riding we did with the Shaper Twin, we felt this board was good in the pipe too. Finally riding powder on the Shaper Twin, as expected, was so much fun, the taper and Fusion Rocker Camber lets you sit back and enjoy the ride. Overall, the Shaper Twin is an exceptionally fun twin freestyle ripper, it’s got an appealing shape and You can count on this board to perform well everywhere We recommend trying the Never Summer Shaper Twin.
