2022 Never Summer Hammer X Men's Snowboard
The Never Summer Hammer X Snowboard offers a fresh take on a classic full camber profile. Add a little taper here, set the stance back there, throw in a smidgen of rocker upfront, and voila: it's damn near the perfect directional all-mountain deck. All you need now are some trees, some steeps, and a healthy dose of pow. The Hammer X is a wider version of the standard board with the same feel and construction.
What’s old is new again! The Hammer features Never Summer's new and improved camber profile adding a modern take to a classic profile. The directional camber Hammer is the perfect all-mountain camber board. With a slight 5mm of taper and a 1″ setback stance, the Hammer offers quick turn initiation and unparalleled stability. Never Summer’s super stable Vario Power Grip Sidecut technology is now paired with Front End Rise and Float mechanics creating a superbly versatile camber snowboard. Destination set to ecstasy on this snowboard time machine.

Single Camber Profile
Extended Transition Area – Never Summer adds a small flat section in the snowboard profile that improves both turn initiation and powder flotation.
Flex Rating – 7/10
Dampness Rating – 5/10
Vario Power Grip Sidecut – Vario Power Grip Sidecut utilizes multiple radiuses creating extra contact points to enhance edge hold. A flat section in the rocker area provides a broad contact point when flexed, however when unbent allows the board to track straight and not catch. Flanking this straight section are two shallow radii which provide the second and third contact points. Towards the ends of the sidecut are deep radius which renders quick turn initiation and the final contact points.
NS Superlight Wood Core – Never Summer uses a custom blend of wood species that was created to be the lightest weight yet durable core on the market. The NS Superlight Wood Core is CNC sanded in the custom woodworking facility to a fraction of a millimeter. A tailored flex is perfected, giving their snowboards unequaled performance.
Carbon VXR Laminate Technology – Carbon VXR extends carbon fiber V's out from the inserts to the effective edge for quick response while stiffening the board torsionally. Additionally, V's are positioned to the ends of the board providing maximum boost and pop when loaded up. This is an ideal layup to transfer energy to the end of the effective edge, tip/tail, and still give the board a softer more forgiving mid-flex for torsional control.
STS Pretensioned Fiberglass – The world's best snowboard fiberglass, period. This advanced pre-hardened, pre-tensioned, layered laminate has added elastomer stringers between the 0 degrees and 90-degree glass fibers (the length of the effective edge). This produces a stronger bond between the individual glass laminates giving our snowboards unmatched strength, edge hold, and performance.
Bi-Lite Fiberglass – Bi-Lite Fiberglass combines many of the strength characteristics of Never Summer's STS fiberglass with an ultralight glass fiber matrix. This delivers incredible freestyle and freerides performance without sacrificing durability.
RDS 2 Damping System – This lightweight system uses three narrower laminated dampening layers that provide the perfect combination of vibration, absorption, and stability. RDS 2 is the perfect balance of freeride stability and freestyle liveliness.
Elastomeric Underfoot Stabilizers – Elastomeric Underfoot Stabilizers directly below the mounting area provide optimum vibration absorption and increase high-speed stability while reducing foot fatigue.
+/- 45 Fiberglass Laminate
Sintered P-Tex Sidewalls – Never Summer was the first snowboard company to use and perfect Sintered P-Tex Sidewalls, and they've never seen one crack. Unlike conventional ABS sidewalls that have a tendency to crack in colder temperatures, Sintered P-Tex Sidewalls maintain their integrity at any temperature.
Durasurf Sintered 4501 Base – Crown Plastics has been the industry leader in sintered materials for over 36 years and has created the Durasurf 4501 sintered base exclusively for Never Summer. This high-density base is extremely fast and will provide unmatched performance and durability.
Premium Coextruded Polymer Topsheet – The Premium Topsheet is a durable, lightweight, scratch and chip resistant fiber backed thermoplastic. The premium topsheets also provide more grip than other top sheet materials, working as a built-in stomp pad.
P-Tex Tip/Tail Protection – Boards with P-Tex Tip/Tail Protection have UHMW plastic or P-Tex which is a softer molecular material that not only seals and protects the wood core but also absorbs vibration and impact.
