2014 Never Summer Raven Snowboard Review
One of the only true women’s freeride snowboards on the market, the 2014 Never Summer Raven snowboard is ready to shred the big mountains. As the women’s equivalent to the men’s Never Summer Cobra, it only difference is size, waist width, and flex.
The 2014 Never Summer Raven snowboard feels at home hucking big cliffs and charging hard. We recommend this to the advanced shredder looking to get into the backcountry and own the mountain. Beginners, you might want to wait a seasons before you pick one of these up.

2014 Never Summer Raven Snowboard Flex Test:
The 2014 Never Summer Raven Snowboard is the most tech, highest performance women's all mountain snowboard NS has made to date. Their NS Superlight Wood Core and Carbonium Laminate Technology have been engineered specifically for women who want a softer mid flex for torsional control but power underfoot for unmatched carve-ability. The Raven’s shape features a more drawn out nose and quick tail allowing the board to plane over soft new snow in addition to blunt ends for superior maneuverability. Combine that with the NS exclusive Women’s Carbonium Dampening System (WCDS) and you’ve got one of the smoothest, most stable rides on the market that will have you hollering ‘Nevermore’.
Sizes Available: 146, 149, 151, 154, 157
