The Academy Merit Snowboard is a high performance directional board for the advanced freestyler/free rider.
Key Features of The Academy Merit 157cm Snowboard:
Hybrid construction: The best of both worlds. Tip to tail wood core combined with ABS sidewall along the effective edge for added edge hold ad durability transitioning to a capped tip and tail allowing for maximum ease in the transition into and out of turns.
Directional Geometry: Uniquely shaped tip and tail combined with a set backstance creates a board for high speeds and stability
Tip to tail wood core:
Light weight Canadian aspen wood core with poplar strings through the inserts for maximum strength, consistent flex pattern and ensure maximum longevity
Stainless 10MM inserts: 10MM stainless steel inserts are super strong, light and won't rust. 1/2 spaced inserts patterns-guarantee the rider to dial in the perfect stance.
Carbon cord fiberglass weave: carbon fiber cords woven directly into the tri-ax fiberglass during production fuses the carbon and fiberglass as one. eliminating flat spots where traditional carbon strips begin and end. The Carbon Cord Fiberglass Weave (CCFW) delivers a true stiffer curve from tip to tail and increases memory camber.
Sintered 4000UHMW: Sintered ultra high molecular weight base has excellent absorption, resulting in grater speeds without compromising durability, making it easy to maintain
