Product Info

Icarus might have flown too close to the sun, but when you hop on the CAPiTA Mercury Snowboard you might question Icarus' commitment to the send. Fly high, snowboarders, and ride fast with style. This all-terrain menace to the "pizza, french fry" slowpokes is just waiting for permission to launch, get steep and impress in the park. The FSC® Certified Panda Core™ features bamboo rods for extra durability and power, reinforced by V-Tech woven tech tape for a ride that would make the Apollo astronauts envious. Close the airspace, because the CAPiTA Mercury Snowboard wants to take your all-terrain riding to the stratosphere.

Product Details

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.

Topsheet

Multitech™ Level 6 DeepSpace™ Silkscreen + PAM16000™ Topsheet with Metallic Underlay

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 100% Hydro Powered Mothership FacilityThe 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.
