Capita Mercury Snowboard 2022Regular price $1,099.99 Save $-1,099.99
If you're going to ride the whole mountain, we mean really really ride it, the CAPiTA MEGA Mercury Snowboard doesn't compromise anywhere. This new board takes the popular hard charger and MEGA-fies it with a super lightweight and poppy core, letting you take flight in any conditions. A half-inch setback works with the directional flex to make for a solid descender: from groomers to chutes this thing won't let you down. But it'll hold its own in manmade environments too, with a resort-ready camber profile and twin-ish shape that'll ride switch and rip the park.
Rider Type: All Mountian
Rocker: Rocker / Camber / Rocker
Ability Level: Advanced / Expert
Rocker Type - Resort V2 Profile – This revolutionary all-terrain shape provides the best of both worlds. It has a raised camber platform through the inserts to retain high-speed edge hold through variable terrain, elevated contact points to land and float in powder, and Flat Kick tip and tail arcs for faster, more aggressive transitions.
Shape - New Age Directional – NEW AGE DIRECTIONAL sidecuts are progressive sidecuts, which also incorporate a reverse sidecut arc in the midsection of the board. Due to a reduced effective edge as a result of hybrid camber shapes, this reverse camber arc provides a point of contact to retain control throughout the turn and is affectionately referred to as DEATH GRIP™.
Core - FSC Certified Panda Core™ – From razor-sharp turns on demand to huge ollies, the PANDA CORE™ was engineered with all-terrain technical freestyle riding in mind. Comprised of a Poplar / Paulownia core and enhanced with inlaid Bamboo Power Rods, this high-density core is strong enough to meet the needs of the all-terrain customer while saving considerable weight.
Laminates - Amplitech™ V-Tech Amplifier – Amplitex™ is a next-generation natural flax fiber woven with carbon strands that is featured in high-end snowboard constructions. This fusion tape brings the best of two worlds: the reactive energy of carbon and the lightweight and dampening aspects of flax. The two fibers are highly compatible since they have similar properties regarding thermal expansion and failure strain, creating a uniformly flexing reinforcement that's light, snappy and durable all in one.
Magic Bean Resin – This advanced resin system has a bio-content of 60% renewable, agricultural raw material and is produced with no waste or greenhouse emissions. In production, it has a low-temperature requirement with a high yield output. Poppy, powerful, and extremely durable, MAGIC BEAN™ resin yields much stronger and more rigid qualities allowing a decrease in the wood core thickness. This means you get a lighter board while achieving higher energy return.
Holysheet™ Fiberglass – The HOLYSHEET™ fiberglass configuration features fiber weaves with a high tensile strength and low modulus of elasticity. With a higher roving count in the same weight of glass, you can have a stronger and more responsive board without adding extra weight. It features Triaxial fiberglass on top of the core and Biaxial fiberglass beneath, creating a perfectly blended ride while increasing strength and durability.
Sidewalls - Full ABS1000 Sidewalls
Base - Hyperdrive™ Base – Exclusively formulated, sintered, ultra-high molecular weight, ultra-high density polyethylene, custom engineered with special additives. Rated for the most depraved speed junkies only.
Edges - 360 Degree HRC48 Steel Edges
Topsheet - PAM16000™ Topsheet with Metallic Underlay - PLT™ Topsheet Technology – PLT™ technology is exclusive to CAPiTA MFG and magically bonds the topsheet to an already pressed snowboard.
Graphics - Multitech™ Level 6 DeepSpace™ Silkscreen – The DEEPSPACE™ Design Theory takes advantage of the thickness of a transparent topsheet. Strategically layering ink on multiple levels from the top and the bottom imbues graphics with a sense of life through depth.
