Welcome to the 2016 Racer X Online Actually Fun Gift Guide. We're attempting to make mundane Christmas gift shopping into something cool—starting with the fact that motocross gifts are the best gifts of all. Try RacerXBrand.com to get your shopping list going this year, then check out some other cool products.
For much of us across the country, December has been brutally cold. And dark. And cold. We had a high (!!!) of 10 degrees the other day in West Virginia. During the upcoming months, the only real chance to get in some activity outside is snowboarding. If you’re looking for a new board this year, support a company that supports the sport.
Since 2010, Colorado-based Never Summer has invested in the sport. (For more about the company’s involvement in moto, check out this 2014 interview with their marketing director Chris Harris.) Not only do they sponsor riders, they also moto themselves. Yes, moto is fun for these guys, but their jobs are in snow, which they do a kick ass job at. The Maverix is part of their new line and a great board for any rider. It does feature a wider than average waist width, and a significantly larger surface area. Never Summer recommends you size up to 10cm, smaller or larger, than your standard size. The board is made of bi-lite fiberglass and features carbon max laminate technology. Check out NeverSummer.com and pick yours up for $519.99.
If you’re looking for a board with stability in any condition, check out the Insta/Gator from Never Summer. Like the Maverix, it is made of bi-lite fiberglass and features carbon max laminate technology. Never Summer recommends sizing the Gator to 10cm smaller to improve your overall performance. Check it out at NeverSummer.com. It retails for $519.99.
