Never Summer Shade 2020 Review by The Good Ride

The Never Summer Shade is a very forgiving, super flexy, loose freestyle ride. It is a lot of fun to butter around the mountain and play on. It’s got a hybrid rocker profile (rocker between the feet and camber outside of the feet). It is fun and easy to play all over the mountain with a freestyle approach.

How This Review Happened: We borrowed it for an extended demo and returned it after.

Ethics Statement: We don’t get paid by the manufacturer to write these reviews.  We do make money from the “Where To Buy” links, but this is our best attempt at an honest and objective review from an average rider’s perspective.

Days: 3
