Never Summer has really locked it down and with their Infinity women’s board they have created one of the best boards of the year and definitely one of the favourites of our testers. NeverSummer makes powerful all-mountain boards but the Infinity is an incredible freestlye stick. First of all, this board is fun. It feels fantastic, it’s light and solid and you’ll ride with confidence. But the infinity is also high-performance. You can dig into your turns as hard as you can and it won’t wash out.

You might need to approach tree runs and glades with a little more gusto than usual, but the ride is still solid and strong. Not to mention it handles powder like a champ. But this is still a freestyle board complete with a twin shape that feels great when approaching jumps with pre-loaded spins. This is a fantastic board for advanced riders.

 

WHAT THE SBC TESTERS ARE SAYING

  • · Fun Ride · Stable · Holds an aggressive edge · Great for Groomers

“Wow. This board was, by far, my favourite. So much fun, super stable, could hold an aggressive edge for life. Nice spin feel. Super stoked—I’d go out and but this now.”

“Felt super solid in the chop, and held its edge pretty well on the groomers.”

  • · Need to work it in the trees ·

“Felt more stable and in control on groomers rather than in pow and trees. Really poppy and fun on side hits and groomers.”
