Blurring the lines between all mountain charger and playful freestyle board, the unique Proto Type 2 is the perfect choice for experienced riders who are looking for a versatile board that will let them ride absolutely everything on the mountain. Utilising some of the most advanced materials available, it delivers class leading levels of performance whilst still managing to retain a more forgiving mid flex, ensuring that no matter if you want to charge on it, or have a lazy day playing around in the park, the Proto Type 2 will take it all in its stride.
Built around a state of the art asymmetric twin shape, the Proto Type 2 features one of the most complex side cut/camber combinations available, and it's this that gives the board its unique multi personality performance. Heading up this advanced profile is the state of the art Ripsaw Rocker/Camber profile. This overall rocker shape adds aggressive camber zones under the feet, pushing out the rider's energy to the boards contact points. This gives a level of edge grip and hold on par with a traditional camber, whilst still retaining that floaty and buttery feel you only get with a rocker. Now add to this Never Summers multi radius Vario Power Grip sidecut, modified with a deeper profile on the heelside edge (to offset the bio mechanical inefficiencies of a heelside turn), and it's clear that there's been a lot of thought gone into ensuring that this board delivers the ultimate in all terrain performance.
Internally, the Proto Type 2 is a tour de force of snowboard technology and heading this up is the advanced Superlight Wood Core. This lightweight Poplar/ Birch core delivers the perfect balance of pop and power with bullet proof durability. This is then wrapped with carbon enhanced Bi-Lite fibreglass with additional carbon fibre stringers under the binding inserts and running from the contact points to the insert pack. This delivers stunning performance, but thanks to the addition of RDS 2 Dampening System, Elastomeric Underfoot Stabilizers and the Harmonic Tip and Tail you get this performance without all the aggression that you would normally associate with this kind of construction. Finally, the super-fast Durasurf XT 5501 base delivers great performance in all conditions.
