The Super 8 Pro is the essence of speed and agility in a freeride board. Using our fastest, Area 51 base material and Damplifier Lite, this tapered directional shape with Backseat Camber is extremely agile in deep snow and groomers alike, with an uncanny ability to power through variable terrain. A wider shape allows the rider to size down 3-4 cm.
Shape: Tapered directional - Tail width is slightly tapered (2-20mm). This loosens up turning initiation and improves floatation in deeper snow without sacrificing edge hold on hardpack.
Bend: Backseat Camber - Camber loaded under the back foot for precision and control, with flat segments under the front foot for superior floatation in deep snow. The best of both worlds.
Core: Aspen SLCT and FSC certified Woodcore. Every single wood strip is hand selected to ensure unparalleled core quality and lightness. FSC certified wood comes from forests that meet the highest environmental and social standards, supporting sustainable forest mana
Fibreglass:C/FX Basalt andBA MD - A patented combination of fiberglass and basalt designed to provide an optimal ratio of weight, power, and dampening. Medium density European-made fiberglass layers guarantee a consistent quality level, for light and lively boards.
Base:Area51 - Built to go faster and higher, Area 51 is our fastest base material that utilizes a high-density sintered base with a top secret wax formula and factory finish.
Quadratic Sidecut -A blend of elliptic curves for easy turn initiation, effortless direction changes and fluid edge to edge transitions.
Popster - Maximize the natural snap and powerful pop of wood with Popster’s shaped core profile. Feels like your skateboard kicktail finally connected with your snowboard.
Damplifier lite - A combination of lightweight cork and honeycomb are strategically placed in the tip for better float, lower swing weight, and increased dampening and shock resistance.
Gunslinger Sidewall - The pinnacle of Slingshot technology, implementing carbon inlays that run the full length of the board to meet reaction and shock absorption needs of Bode Merrill.
All mountain Edge Bevels - From detuning the tip and tail to a 1-degree edge holding tune throughout the key parts of the sidecut, back to a 2-degree bevel between the feet. This delivers the most solid edge hold with no hang-ups.
