The CT in the name stands for “Carbonium Twin,” which sounds like a conjoined alien villain in a comic book. But make no mistake—you’ll be the one feeling like a superhero with a Proto as your prime ride. By combining the best characteristics of their popular SL and EVO models, the craftsmen at Never Summer have created a board that is a go anywhere, do anything utility deck. Those shreds who find themselves strictly interested in freestyle performance will especially appreciate the twin shape and blunt extremities of the Proto CT and CTX. This snowboard also benefits from the enhanced versatility provided by Never Summer’s patented Rocker Camber Technology. This proprietary approach to underfoot profiling is equally adept at conquering the sidecountry as it is at climbing the backside wall.

“You can do everything on it. It’s not a terrain-specific board; it’s just a good all-mountain board.”
—Joseph Notaro, Winter Park, CO (Shop: Evo)

“I love it. The rocker/camber is playful and fun, and it holds my edge when I want to lay it down. It’s great all-around. I can go in the woods, in the park, and hit some groomers in one run, and it keeps me satisfied all the way around.”
—Mike Chait, Loon Mountain, NH (Shop: North School Snowboard Shop)

“It’s the new legacy for all-mountain park boards—camber underfoot with a rocker profile on the tip and tail. It helps you do anything on any terrain.”
—Kellan Murphy, Mammoth Mountain, CA (Shop: Black Tie Ski Rentals)
