With the Never Summer Swift Splitboard it's a piece of cake to manoeuver through the tightest forest. We have no idea how the Fusion Rocker Camber Profile - so the official name - works, we just know it works.

Test Results


The Neversummer Swift gave us once again a WOW experience - awesome. It glides very well, it is agile and gave us big smiles on the way down. The width of the nose comes up without any effort on our part, also due to the "wing profile" and the impressive width. This riding pleasure in powder is not spoiled even on hard slopes. It stops on the edge and is very manoeuvrable even on rough terrain. It glides effortlessly over deep tracks. What is incredibly goodon the way down, unfortunately brings with it big disadvantages during the way up. The effective edge length in the ascent is about 30cm. One could say shorter edge more pressure, but the board turns like a needle of a compass and the pressure cannot be distrubuted along the edge. Carrying of crampons is an absolute must.

Description


With the Never Summer Swift Splitboard it's a piece of cake to manoeuver through the tightest forest. We have no idea how the Fusion Rocker Camber Profile - so the official name - works, we just know it works. Together with the Swallow Tail, the wild V-Rocker profile provides enough float for the deepest fluff.
