Quick overview

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 D Thermopolymer Starship Core™ including ultralight post-consumer 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. 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.

Details

PROFILE

  • Resort V2 Profile
    This all-terrain shape has a camber between the bindings for good grip at higher speeds. Wah-Pow! has been added to the nose and tail to ensure your contact points are raised, allowing for a more catch-free ride and quicker transitions. The rocker in the nose and tail provides more float in the powder and more landing power.

  • Flat Kick Tech
    With capita’s flat kick design technology, we’ve tightened the tip profile radius that blends the shoulders of the board into the tip and tail height on reverse camber boards. The tight tip radius in conjunction with tuned blend zones allows you to have a forgiving and easy to ride reverse camber board that is still responsive and quick during edge-to-edge transitions. This also creates a flat tip and tail which increases jibbing stability and also helps the board plane on top of powder creating float and control.

 

  • New Age Directional Sidecut
    Capita's 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

  • 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.

 


REINFORCEMENTS

  • Megacarbon Array
    Mega-wide carbon tape on both top and bottom of the woodcore = four times the power and response of previous carbon additives.

  • Holysheet Tri/Tri 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. At the highest level, Triaxial fiberglass is placed on both the top and bottom of the core providing maximum strength, durability and performance, while many of our most sought after models feature Triaxial fiberglass on top of the core and Biaxial fiberglass beneath, creating a perfectly blended ride while increasing strength and durability. Combine one of these two layups with the Magic Bean resin and one of the many additives we have available, and you get an incredibly high performing board tailored to meet your style of riding.


BASE

  • Hyperdrive Base
    Custom formulated and exclusive to the mothership, our engineers have worked tirelessly with the world's leading polyethylene running base supplier to create hyperdrive™ . With exceptional anti-friction properties due to high molecular mass and specialized processing aids, this sintered material has a custom carbon component and is beyond fast. Our loyal fans charge hard, and for 2021 and beyond we have integrated the fastest, meanest base available.

  • Moonshot Omni-tune
    Aftermarket performance stone grind structure straight from The Mothership, optimized for regular and switch riding.

 

  • Die-cut Base

 


TOPSHEET

  • PLT Topsheet Technology
    The PLT machine sits in a secret hidden corner of the factory behind two very unassuming, nondescript metal doors. The PLT  is so secretive that with the exception of its inventor, Mr. Michi Kollmann, all visitors to the room must be versed in an ever-changing secret handshake. PLT technology is exclusive to CAPiTA MFG and magically bonds the topsheet to an already pressed snowboard. This is magical because the rest of the world mashes their topsheets on with glue, heat and pressure during the pressing stage. Doing so causes the fiberglass structure underneath to show through the topsheet. And because nobody wants to spend their hard earned cash on a bumpy snowboard, many companies slather their tops with a thick toxic lacquer to smooth things out. Not only is that material HEAVY and can potentially develop unsightly hairline cracks, it’s also really unhealthy for the working environment. The PLT machine produces a featherlight, smooth, high-gloss finish, without all that poisonous deadweight.

  • Megalite Skin Topsheet
    Super thin yet durable matte lamina for 60% weight reduction over Capita's regular topsheets.

  • PAM16000 Topsheet

 


SIDEWALL & EDGES

  • Full ABS1000 Sidewalls

 

  • 360 Degree HRC48 Steel Edges

 


OTHERS

  • Magic Bean Resin
    Developed over a three-year span, this all new resin system has a bio-content of 60% renewable, agricultural raw materials. It is plant based that does not compete with primary food sources and is produced with no waste or greenhouse emissions. In production, it has a low-temperature requirement with a high yield output. This resin system is poppy, powerful, and extremely durable. Magic bean resin yields much stronger and more rigid qualities allowing us to decrease the wood core thickness. Our focus is to save wood core weight by increasing resin performance. This means you get a lighter board while achieving higher energy return.

  • Stainless Steel 4 x 2 Inserts
