We all know about the black shadows of death, the terrors of the deep that are killer whales. Well the apex predator just got 50% more apexier. Think killer whales with freaking laser beams on their heads. Think orcas fighting great whites or giant squids or something, and their skin gets ripped off their face, revealing Terminator-style chrome and blinking red lights underneath. The Lib Tech T.Rice Apex Orca Snowboard is the pow-slaying all-mountain hunter we all know and love, laid up with a crazy light, concerningly bloodthirsty Apex Construction. It's a cyborg murder dolphin made of carbon fiber, PET bottles, and hot nasty speed.
C2X – A shorter, more aggressive banana rocker combined with cambers that sit more underfoot. Extra solid tip and tail pressure for power, pop, precision and end-to-end stability combined with a medium amount of pressure between your feet for carving, edge hold on ice and float in pow.
Medium - Stiff – Stout enough to charge your hardest but without excessive harshness.
Volume Shifted – Ride this board 3-6 cm shorter than your normal board.
Lightweight Spin Slim Tip / Tail
Apex Construction – 20% Aspen / 30% Paulownia / 40% (PET) Recycled Bottles / 10% Balsa. Lightest. Environmentally nicer. Liveliest.
Spread Toe Carbon – Flattened widely aligned carbon fibers maximize strength, minimize weight and eliminate potential stress/break points associated with woven carbon fabrics. Light, strong and responsive.
33° Carbon Mesh – Light strong, lively carbon fiber oriented to maximize torsional response from control points to contacts points for maximum performance.
S-Glass Strips – High silica content glass fiber that has high tensile strength, high elastic modulus great overall strength to weight properties.
Triaxial Fiberglass – 0° x 45° x 45° oriented fiber combination creates the perfect balance of torsional responsiveness and overall flex performance.
UHMW Tip / Tail Impact Deflection
Sintered Knife Cut Base – High density UHMW. Optimized wax retention and toughness. Wax regularly and repair professionally.
Magne-Traction® – Strategically located edge serrations provide unreal edge hold and control in all conditions. Turns ice into powder.
Eco Sublimated Bio Beans Top – This plant oil based top material is environmentally friendly, rugged, scratch resistant and prints amazingly well with Mervin's eco sublimation process.
Mervin Made – Hand made at the Mervin Factory in Washington, USA with zero hazardous waste.
