Description

The go-to snowboard of Sam Klein, one of the most technical freestyle snowboarders on the planet, the soft-flex, twin tip Proto Slinger features Never Summer's Shockwave Rocker Camber Profile for massive pop and asymmetrical sidecut for balance edge to edge. Press Flex core allows for locks into presses and on rails. Not only is this the end-all be-all of freestyle snowboards, it also excels where a freestyle snowboard isn’t supposed to — everywhere else on the hill.

Profile: Shockwave Rocker

Shock Wave Rocker Camber features extended camber zones underfoot towards the tip and tail for explosive pop and solid stability, with smaller rocker areas that retain quick turn initiation and enhance floatation.

Extended Transition Area – Never Summer adds a small flat section in the snowboard profile that improves both turn initiation and powder flotation.

Shape: Asymmetrical

Asymmetrical boards offer an additional dimension to snowboard design. With a designated toe and heel edge, asymmetrical boards truly realize that your foot is definitely *not symmetrical*. The toe edge is generally slightly longer with a shallower, less aggressive sidecut and the heel edge is generally slightly shorter with a deeper, more reactive sidecut. This is all designed to minimize rider fatigue, while maximizing performance through easier, more natural feeling heelside turns for better response, better carving and more fun!

Flex: 4 (Scale 1 - 10)

Versatility at its finest. From the park to the peak and anywhere in between.

Base: Sintered

High-end base material that is harder, more durable, and faster than extruded bases.
