Until a few seasons ago, it seemed that women's specific splits were a mere afterthought at best, and totally forgotten by many manufacturers. Finally, hard charging ladies aren't constrained to riding inferior setups in the backcountry, thanks to the incredible performance of the Never Summer Women's Raven Splitboard. This backcountry dreamship is based off the regular version of the Raven, which is Never Summer's highest performing women's freeride board to date. As a mid stiff directional twin, the Raven Split comes alive blasting down steep faces and wide open terrain, laying an aggressive edge and charging through variable conditions with stability and poise. Its drawn out nose and quick tail effortlessly float through deep powder, especially considering the board's Original Rocker Camber profile. This rocker dominant profile delivers a generous dose of rocker underfoot, which then transitions to camber running outside the bindings toward the tip and tail contacts. Ultimately, you get the best of both rocker and camber for effortless float and snappy response. Never Summer didn't pull any punches when it came to loading this split with top notch tech. The NS Super Light Wood Core saves weight for faster skinning performance, all without sacrificing the board's legendary durability. Its Carbonium topsheet resists scratches and dings when you're clanking 'em together in tour mode. Women's specific Carbonium Laminates enhance energy transfer and response without making the board unwieldy or overly stiff for lighter female riders. Other split friendly features include Sintered P Tex inner and outer sidewalls for bombproof durability, as well as an extremely fast Durasurf XT 5501 base.
