Behold! The consummate anytime, any-place, all-terrain, snow-slaying device: the MEGA MERC Wide. 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 3D Thermopolymer Starship Core™ that marries ultralight post-consumer recycled plastics with premium grade wood, the MEGA MERC is further bolstered by a MEGACARBON™ Array and a MEGALITE Skin™ topsheet, yielding an exclusive performance-to-weight ratio for serious descents.

For 2023, the MEGA MERC has been further enhanced with a new, high-speed MEGADRIVE™ base with a factory direct Moonshot Omni-tune™, optimizing high-speed performance while riding both regular and switch. 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.


RIDER TYPE: The ultimate any time, any day, any condition, freeride machine.

FLEX: 6.5

CAMBER TYPE: RESORT V2 PROFILE
This revolutionary all-terrain 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, elevated contact points to land and float in powder, and Flat Kick tip and tail arcs for faster, more aggressive transitions.

Tech

FSC® CERTIFIED 3D THERMOPOLYMER STARSHIP CORE™
Utilizing an advanced electronic sorting system allows us 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.

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 + MAGIC BEAN™ RESIN
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.

NEW! MEGADRIVE™ BASE
Striving to kit out our MEGA line-up with the most advanced and premium components, the all new MEGADRIVE™ base is as fast as science can make it. This is a pure race base composed of UHMW polyeth- ylene modified with high carbon content and special fluoro additives for lightspeed gliding in a wide range of conditions.

MEGALITE SKIN™ TOPSHEET
Super thin yet durable matte lamina for 60% weight reduction over our regular topsheets.

Why Get A Wide Board

Choosing between a wide snowboard and a regular snowboard depends on a few factors. If you have larger feet, a wide snowboard is definitely worth considering. It offers a wider platform that prevents your boots from dragging in the snow during sharp turns, ensuring better stability and reducing the chance of catching an edge. This is especially important for riders with boot sizes of 11 or larger. Wide snowboards also provide more surface area, which can enhance floatation in deep snow and improve overall control. So, if you want a more comfortable and stable ride, a wide snowboard may be what you are looking for.
