The Curated Take

I bought this board last season when I really could not determine which board I wanted. There was a lot on my radar from the Ride Algorythm, Capita BSOD, Rome Ravine, and a few others. It was hard for me to pick out of those ones, I had owned a Salomon First Call beforehand and knew I wanted a decently stiff all-mountain board that could handle anything I threw at it. I ended up going with the Mega Merc in a 157, and I couldn't have been happier. The first day I rode it, I was a bit nervous, I had never ridden a board that stiff, and being the first day of the season, my body was a bit out of "snowboarding shape". On the first run, the board had felt like I had ridden it for 100 days already. It was so natural edge to edge, what set it apart was the boost in this board and the speed. Any side hit I hit felt so natural and so smooth when loading up the board, and then the speed on that earlier season of sticky snow was crazy. The usual slow catwalks at my local resort moved like walking on a moving carpet at the airport.

This board was my main ride last year, and I took it with me to Kirkwood in Tahoe and handled that more aggressive terrain like nothing. That day also had a bit of deeper snow, which was fun with the slightly longer nose on this board.

Ideal for
  • This board is fast, and this board boosts ollies and sidehits like a dream
  • If having a light snowboard is a big plus, look no further, this board is considerably lighter than other boards in its category
  • A true one board quiver. It is a board that I know will handle any terrain or condition I throw at it.
Not ideal for
  • While being great in powder, it is not tapered, so it does not float as well as a more directional or powder board
  • The nose can get a little chattery when riding at higher speeds, the board remains damp, visually a little weird

This board was crazy good. With this being a more advanced board in the Capita lineup, it comes with a lot more features and quality of materials. This board wanted to move. It's got a really high-end race base on it, which allowed me to keep my speed no matter the terrain and really move with no drag. The board... Read more
