Designed for the well-rounded snowboarder hellbent on mastering all facets of the mountain, the Capita Mercury Snowboard is back again for another season of all-mountain domination. With high-tech features designed to grip on hardpack and plane in pow -- both forward and switch -- the Mercury will be that go-to tech you mount up once and ride all season. No wonder it's been the recipient of Good Wood Awards year-in and year-out.
Freeride Profile – This revolutionary all-mountain 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, and elevated contact points to land and float in powder.
7.5 – (1 Soft - 10 Stiff)
New Age Directional Sidecut with Deathgrip™ – Progressive sidecuts that 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™.
Panda Core™ – The Panda Core™ was built for a high performance return of energy in a lightweight versatile core. From razor sharp turns on demand, to huge ollies, this core was engineered with all-terrain technical freestyle riding in mind. Comprised of Capita's P2 Superlight 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.
Engineered Carbon Arcs – These 20mm Carbon Arcs are constructed utilizing an all new computer engineered carbon shaping process. After extensive lab work analyzing how a particular shape reacts to the dynamics of riding, each piece of pre-shaped and pre-laminated carbon fiber is made to exact standards that enhance the positive features of a particular board.
Dynaweave™ Fiberglass – The Dynaweave™ configuration features triaxial fiberglass on the top of the core and biaxial fiberglass beneath, creating more response while increasing strength and durability. Combine this layup with a specialized resin and one of the many additives CAPiTA has available and you get a high performing board tailored to meet your style of riding.
Bi-Resin – Low temperature requirement, high yield output. This marine grade resin system is poppy, powerful, and extremely durable. Bi-Resin yields much stronger and more rigid qualities allowing CaPiTA to decrease the wood core thickness. The main focus is to save wood core weight by increasing resin performance. This means you get a lighter board while achieving higher energy return.
