Master Core and Premium Sandwich construction make this board a powerhouse of pop that eats vibrations for breakfast. Get on the Merc and get going.
Standard CamRock – This tried and true camber is perfect for riders who want to enjoy all aspects of snowboarding. With camber between the bindings and rocker evenly distributed in the nose and tail, this is the all-mountain, all-conditions profile that will leave you stoked and smiling from ear to ear.
Flex Rating – 6 (1 Soft – 10 Stiff)
Diamond Nose – This is a newly developed shape with a longer transition that allows for a more compact nose with increased float.
Diamond Tail – This evolution of the all-round tail is compact with a longer transition for increased lift, allowing you to ride switch without compromising the board’s responsiveness.
R7 Series – This short to moderate 7+ meter radius is perfect for carving sharp arcing turns.
R8 Series (159W, 162W, 165W ONLY) – This medium 8+ meter radius is stable and versatile enough for everyday riding.
Master Core – The Master Core construction is the result of a long history of experimentation in materials and woodcraft. It’s the perfect harmony of different wood densities and varieties (poplar, beech, spruce, and paulownia), resulting in a superior weight-to-power ratio and an ultra-strong, extra-responsive lightweight core.
Premium Sandwich – This next level construction steps up the power and response of the standard sandwich manufacturing. Adding advanced materials like Carbon and Kevlar® gives the board more pop and improved shock absorption.
N-5000 – The N-5000 is a universal base designed to absorb wax and retain it longer. Exceptionally durable, this base will take you anywhere.
Absorbnid – This innovative top layer has been developed to absorb unwanted vibrations allowing for responsive and dynamic boards that still give you a smooth and comfortable ride.
2×4 – 5 Inserts – With 5 rows of inserts every 2 cm, this combination is the industry standard and works with all bindings on the market. The reference stance is the middle position.
