Progression begins with confidence, and the Merc’s playful feel will inspire you to take your riding to the next level, whatever the terrain.The secret sauce is the Standard Camrock profile, a combination of classic camber beneath your feet with extended rocker towards the tip and tail. This gives great edge hold without being too aggressive; it also smooths turn initiation and adds useful float in powder. We’ve paired it with a mellow flex pattern that doesn’t need superhuman strength to load presses, but thanks to Pop Carbon inlays at each end you can still generate a ton of ollie power. It’s a truly versatile model and a favourite of our team, whether they’re launching off the pro line or exploring deep in the backcountry. You won’t find a better value quiver killer.
