Flow Merc (Black Brite) Snowboard 2012

Packed with enough punch to podium on the Dew Tour, the Flow Merc Snowboard is built for high performance and durability. Oh yeah, it’s super fun to ride too. The Merc has an EZ Dual-Transitional sidecut that creates a more forgiving ride and delivers snappy, powerful carving. A slightly directional shape and extruded Optix 2000 high density base allow for easy maintenance, less prep time, and more time out in the snow.
Flex
Flex Rating – 3 (1 Stiffest – 5 Softest)
Catering to those who are looking to progress and have some fun at the same time, the Flow Merc is a perfect fit. A forgiving ride means more time on your feet and less on your ass.
Construction and Core
TruFlex core technology features a high strength-to-weight wood construction utilizing different density Poplar woods uniquely profiled to give you excellent all-around response when riding the mountain.
Shape
EZ-ROCK super mellow reverse camber is combined with a convex base for the railyard for easy riding without edge catching. This is combined with camber starting before the binding area, providing stability, easy presses and agility, no matter where you mount your bindings.
Directional Twin has the exact same shape of the nose and tail, but with setback inserts and a core profile for snap off the tail and a more forgiving noise in crud and pow.
Sidewalls, Edges and Base
Optix 2000 high density, extruded base that is extremely easy to maintain and fix is one of the highest wax-absorbing bases on the market and will give you all the speed you need even if you don’t wax on a regular basis.
E2 Dual Transitional sidecut designed around Flow’s rocker boards is mellow between the bindings and at the tips with a more aggressive grip in the binding areas. This creates a more forgiving ride when things get a bit bumpy, and a tight radius blended for quick, snappy, powerful carving.

Specs

  • Terrain: All-Mountain
    All-Mountain
    All-mountain snowboards are designed for exploring the whole mountain. They are your go-to for a snowboard that will do anything. They feel at home on groomers, powder, park runs and almost anything in between. The vast majority of snowboarders choose all-mountain boards for their great versatility. If you’re just getting started or unsure of exactly what you need, an all-mountain snowboard is a great choice.
  • Ability Level: Beginner-Intermediate
    Beginner-Intermediate
    Someone who is new to the sport or working on linking smoother turns falls into this ability level. Typical beginner ski/snowboard qualities include: softer materials, narrower widths, and capped constructions. The idea is to create a ride that is easy to turn and very forgiving in case you become off balance or fall in the back seat. The addition of rocker in the tip and tail gives a catch-free feeling and shorter contact length when the ski/snowboard is flat on the snow, making it easier to turn.
  • Rocker Type: Camber/Rocker/Camber
    Camber/Rocker/Camber
    Camber/Rocker/Camber is a profile that’s specific to snowboards and which works because the rider’s weight flattens the two cambered areas. This design produces a strong, pressured carving zone between the rider’s feet and retains pop and carving precision at the tip and tail.
  • Flex Rating: Stiff
    Stiff
    The amount a snowboard flexes varies significantly between boards. Snowboard flex ratings are not necessarily standardized across manufacturers, so the flex may vary from brand to brand. Many manufacturers will give a number rating ranging from 1-10, 1 being softest and 10 being stiffest. Here at evo we have standardized the manufacturers' number ratings to a feel rating ranging from soft to very stiff. Generally you will find flex ratings of 1-2 as soft, 3-5 as medium, 6-8 as stiff, and 9-10 as very stiff. Flex ratings and feel may ultimately vary from snowboard to snowboard.
