BTX Banana Rocker Profile - Mervin's revolutionary original all terrain freestyle banana blend. Rocker between your feet blended with flat-to-mild camber to contact points. Focuses pressure between your feet for easy turns, great edge hold on ice and a mild amount of pressure to the tip and tail for excellent float, jib oriented style, and catch-free turns.
Asym Level 1 - You'll still feel that heelside turns are easier, but it won't define your experience. With level 1 Asymmetrical technology the core wood used on the heelside of the board is a touch softer making your carves smoother. The sidecut is also a bit deeper on the heelside edge which is what you'll notice right away, you'll be working less to transition to your heels which translates to a more natural feeling as you connect your turns.

Water-based solvents used for cleansing (instead of petrochemical-based solvents).
Canola-based biodiesel heats the Mervin factory and is a renewable resource.

G1 Asymmetrical ACG Core - Balanced, light, sustainable, FSC certified, strong, and poppy this core is made from Aspen and Columbian Gold Alloy. It's slightly less dense on the heelside of the board, working with the way your body is built to make it feel more natural and even when you are riding.
Bi-Axial Glass - 2-way fiber orientation. Engineered to make the difficult easy.
Tri-Axial Glass - 3-way fiber orientation. Engineered to make the difficult even easier.
Co-Ex Base - Perfect for beginners and park riders, this base keeps you moving fast and is easy to repair. All those dings your board gets over the season are like battle scars, but they also slow you down so repair your board to help your setup feel like it's new again, and again, and again.
Eco-Sub Verzure Poly Topsheet - This Polyester topsheet is tough, sheds snow and adds traction.
UHMW External Sidewalls - Ultra High Molecular Weight exterior sidewalls made from soy-based elastomer are laminated to five internal wood layers for totally bombproof sidewalls. Fast, rugged, hard, waterproof.
1 Year Warranty - Covered under manufacturer warranty for 1 year from the time of purchase. Warranty includes structural defects only and DOES NOT cover impact damage, abuse, misuse or normal wear and tear expected from aggressive riding.
Sorry folks, but bashing your board on a rock or rail does not qualify as a "manufacturer's defect" and will not be honored.
