Never Summer's stiffest and dampest board, the Chairman Snowboard handles exposed faces, bottomless powder, and steep groomers like a boss. This big mountain board absorbs tons of shock and high speed vibration, allowing you to mow down anything standing in your way, including bumped up runs and variable snow at the end of a powder day. Plus, its tapered directional shape keeps its nose from submerging on seriously deep days. Based off Never Summer's Raptor and Premier F1, the Chairman is a mash up of these two boards, creating an elite freeride deck that's capable of tackling the most technical bowls and deepest pow. The Chairman Power Grip sidecut utilizes even more radii than the Vario Power Grip to create additional contact points for insane edge hold, even on the iciest slopes. Never Summer's original Rocker Camber profile puts rocker between your feet for float and forgiveness, along with camber underfoot for pop, power, and edge hold, and extended transition zones at the main contact points help the board plane in powder more easily. Smoothing out the ride from bumpy runs and high speed chatter, its RDS 1 Damping System uses twice the amount of elastomeric rubber foil as the usual RDS 1 Damping, giving the Chairman the most cushiest feel in Never Summer's line up. Carbonium laminates form a Vs at the tip and tail for enhanced energy transfer translation: more pop and response, as well as a large X through its center for extra torsional rigidity between the feet. Add in a lightning fast Durasurf XT Sintered 5501 base for a board that's comfortable straight lining at high speeds all over the mountain.
