Default NeverSummer SL-R

Hi folks, my first post on this forum.

I am interested in a rocker board for powder. There are many choices, but I'm looking at a Neversummer SL-R 161. Anyone have any thoughts on this model? Also, could you comment on how these boards handle groomed runs.

Thanks much
RB

What up partna? There are a ton of threads already on this forum that discuss the SL-R in depth. Just use the search function up top.

For a powder board I would look at the f1-r instead. It is more freeride orientated and stiffer

I was thinking that a softer board would be better, especially for slashing surf-style turns. But you guys say stiffer is better.

Thanks for the input and btw I intend to use this board at Powder Mountain, mostly.

If your looking for a pure powder stick, hell go for the Summit that thing will slay any powder you throw at it.

OK, looking at the F1-R. It does seem to be a better powder board. And probably more versatile than the Summit.

Thanks for the good advice.

Stiffer is never a bad thing in my book. I don't do a lot of rails or jibbing though...

I did a ton of research before buying my Premier and apparently this board kills it everywhere. First off, it's stiff, but not too stiff. Combined with tons of dampening, this board is super stable and hauls ass down the hill at ungodly speeds. Second, the Rocker Camber tech and Vario-Tech (multiple radius sidecut) give this board a playful feel with an awesome sensation when turning. I've been told that this board even does well in the park. Riding switch is easy and the board has tons of pop on jumps. The only area of the park it won't do so well on is rails.

If you are looking for a good all around board, I'd recommend the Premier F1-R. Even though NS says it's for Big Mountain/Freeride, it's proven itself to be a great all mountain board with performance from the steeps to the park.

Just got off the phone with Neversummer factory. Guy I spoke with concurred that the Premier was the one I needed. probably the 161 model.

Any thoughts on bindings for this board? I currently have 4yr old Burton P1's. Would they be ok?
