Capita Mega Mercury 2023 Snowboard
Behold! The consummate anytime, any-place, all-terrain, snow-slaying device: The MEGA MERC. Inspired by the on-slope versatility of the Mercury series, the MEGA MERC mimics its proven technical design lines while packing a powerful punch of serious construction upgrades. Featuring an FSC® Certified 3D Thermopolymer Starship Core™ including ultralight post-con-sumer recycled plastics, the MEGA MERC is bolstered by a MEGACARBON™ Array and a MEGALITE SKIN™ topsheet, yielding an exclusive performance to weight ratio for serious descents. For 2023 The MEGA MERC now comes with a factory-direct Moonshot Omni-Tune™ optimizing high-speed performance while riding both regular and switch. Designed for power when you want it and float when you need it, the MEGA MERC is the utilitarian, shred-anything, ultra-premium snowboard you can trust to handle it all.
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.
Flex Rating – 6.5/10 (1=Soft,10=Stiff)
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™.
FSC® Certified 3D Thermopolymer Starship Core™ – Utilizing an advanced electronic sorting system allows Capita to select mega-premium, reforestation certified, Poplar graded by weight and grain consistency. Comparable to Paulownia in strength to weight ratio, this core retains the poppiness of Poplar, and then achieves a signature feel by adding bonded post-consumer recycled Thermopolymer channels to form an advanced hybrid core. This mega-premium core will blast you into space and beyond.
Triax/Triax Holysheet™ – 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. Triaxial fiberglass is placed on both the top and bottom of the core providing maximum strength, durability and performance.
Megacarbon™ Array – Mega-wide carbon tape on both top and bottom of the woodcore = four times the power and response of previous carbon additives.
Full ABS1000 Sidewalls
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.
Moonshot Omni-Tune™ – Aftermarket performance stone grind structure straight from The Mothership, optimized for regular and switch riding.
360 Degree HRC48 Steel Edges
Megalite Skin™ Topsheet – Super thin yet durable matte lamina for 60% weight reduction over Capita's regular topsheets.
PLT™ Topsheet Technology – PLT™ technology is exclusive to CAPiTA MFG and magically bonds the topsheet to an already pressed snowboard.
