Never Summer PeaceMaker – 2020 Snowboard Review


Hi I’m Rob from Snowtrax. Here to talk
to you today about the Never Summer Peacemaker. First thing to point out
graphic is going to change slightly on the production models this is a sample
that we’ve been using to ride out and test and the graphic will differ
slightly so base your decision on what you see online on the actual pictures
because is likely to change. So out on test a couple of the guys actually
got to ride on this and I’ve ridden this board before so it’s focused on a couple
of the comments are more recent. Firstly and probably see Paul in the clips quite a
lot. Paul’s been using the Peacemaker and it’s one of his favourite boards for the
last season or so now. He’s been championing this and it works really
well. Whilst this board is a full-on freestyle twin that’s not really where
Paul rides and a lot of the qualities of the board worked really well for him
it’s it’s a little bit more relaxed it’s quite a soft flexing snowboard where a
lot of the carbon lay up is, is actually up and down the board so you
get a lot of pop if you’re in the park when you really float those
Ollie’s but in terms of torsional stiffness so we’re talking about across
the width of the board it’s quite forgiving so if you’re a more relaxed
probably slightly lazy rider this actually can work for you as well but bear in
mind that the actual profile which is still Never Summers more aggressive
profile kind of counteracts that when you need it so it’s a little bit like
cruise control the shape of the board is it’s quite predictable is quite firm but
the flex is quite forgiving so they working well together. So, for freestyle
riders you’re probably going to be looking at this in the range against
against the Funslinger. And your biggest difference is really where stiffness is
because in terms of stiffness they are a soft flexing board but where they’ve
loaded the power in the fun slinger is more in the tip and tail
radiating out whereas in this board it’s along the
board so with the Peacemaker it’s unaffected for its torsional rigidity
which makes it really really forgiving but loads of pop when you’re launching
off booters or trying to get on to onto rails compared to the fun swinger which
just a little bit more powerful in the tip and tail. So those are the kind
of key differences
