Product Info

Enjoy an all-mountain directional board in the CAPiTA Mercury Snowboard. Designed with the lightweight Panda Core™ and New Age Directional Sidecut w/ Death Grip, this board gives you control and maneuverability. The UltraDrive™ Base is durable and poppy giving you the freedom to crush those off-piste lines. Float atop pow and charge those steep chutes this season with the aggressively angled and surefooted feel of the CAPiTA Mercury Snowboard.

Product Details

Rocker Type

Freeride ProfileThis 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.

Flex

Flex Rating7 (1 Soft - 10 Stiff)

Shape

New Age Directional Sidecut w/ Death Grip™A progressive sidecut, which also incorporates 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 as Death Grip™.

Core

Panda Core™Super lightweight core with bamboo power rods.

Laminates

X-Arcs™ Engineered CarbonComputer engineered pre-shaped, pre-laminated carbon for precisely tuned performance.

Holysheet™ Fiberglass with Magic Bean ResinTriax/ Biax Holysheet™ has higher glass to weight ration than normal fiberglass for a more powerful and dynamic ride when impregnated with the new high performance plant based Magic Bean™ Resin.

Sidewalls

Full ABS1000 Sidewalls

Base

UltraDrive™ BaseA sintered ultra-high molecular weight, ultra-high density polyethylene that is the Millenium Falcon of base materials. The force is strong with this one.

Multitech™ Sublimation + Die-cut BaseSublimation is an exact science for an inexact process. In sublimation ink is pushed through a substrate into base material using pressure and heat.

Titanal Base InlayTitanal is a high strength hardened aluminum wrought alloy with excellent compression strength to weight ratios. A perfect top core structural reinforcement, those 20mm Titanal struts resist longitudinal compression contributing more power to these popular, easy to ride models.

Edges

360 Degree HRC48 Steel Edges

Topsheet

Multitech™ Level 5 DeepSpace™Strategically layering ink on multiple levels from the top and the bottom, CAPiTA imbues their graphics with a sense of life through depth.

PAM16000™ TopsheetSpec'd out to the tits with a mind-boggling sixteen thousand ink jet nozzles, PAM16000™ makes our knees weak and our hearts palpitate. She can now spit out solventless, water-based UV inks at twice the speed with the same deadly accuracy and quality.

PLT Topsheet Technology™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 topsheet 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 ish 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.

Additional Features

Made at the Mothership (100% Hydro Powered Facility)The NH3 natural gas heating system has an ODP (Ozone Depletion Potential) and GWP (Global Warming Potential) of 0, with a COP (coefficient of performance) of 5. This means that for every 1 unit of energy consumed by the system, 5 units of energy for heating and cooling is achieved. It's like making the effort to spin a 360, but landing a silky smooth 1800 instead. The Mothership is also designed to maximize the use of natural light during the day by having ample skylights and strategically placed interior cutaways throughout the entire facility -- while energy efficient LED lighting acts as supplementary illumination where necessary.
