Lots of chop to power through.
Well, I haven't been on a Never Summer yet that I felt like rode as well as the price suggested.

Evo $500, Era $390. Proto $550, Rush $500. SL $510, Nitro Team Gullwing $480... I could go on but yeah. If it's what you want that's fine, they do ride well. But they are overpriced. I don't really think that's up for debate.

And I rode SoCal for a year, they don't really get enough snow to get gnar chop.
