2024 Capita Mega Mercury Snowboard
The ultimate any time, any day, any condition, freeride machine.
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™ that marries ultralight post-consumer recycled plastics with premium grade wood, the MEGA MERC is further 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 has been further enhanced with a new, high-speed MEGADRIVE™ base 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.
