Inspired by the halcyon days when swallowtails dominated Colorado's legendary Berthoud Pass, the Never Summer Swift Snowboard is a retro-based, pow-surfing machine for those surfy deep days. Its tapered swallowtail shape naturally sinks the rear, keeping the board's prominent nose up and planing through bottomless powder and thick snow. Set-back along the Swift's directional shape, Fusion Rocker Camber places generous rocker underfoot, with cambered zones running just outside the bindings, and an early-rise nose leading the way. The result bestows your ride with unbelievable float, along with edge grip and control to match. It has a mid-firm flex and extensive RDS 1 Damping System to make it surprisingly stable once the pow's all tracked up, busting through chop and carving hardpack with ease. Then, Carbon Max Laminate Technology combines an advanced top and bottom carbon matrix to maximize response and strength where it's needed most, providing effortless energy transfer that's almost one step ahead of you. And as powder purists are well aware, base-damaging rocks, upturned roots, and hidden logs are always lurking, so Never Summer constructed the Swift with aluminum tip and tail protectors, as well as a Durasurf XT 5501 base to protect against scratches and dings. This incredibly durable base has added graphite, helping you glide over sticky spring snow and deep, dry powder without getting bogged down.

The pika is a close relative of the rabbits and hares, with two upper incisors on each side of the jaw, one behind the other. Being rock-gray in color, pikas are seldom seen until their shrill, metallic call reveals their presence.
