WHAT IT IS FOR
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.
Power and Float
Backseat camber places power and control underneath your backfoot for confident charging while a long nose with rocker helps stay afloat in deep snow.
A quadratic sidecut works seamlessly with backseat camber to provide quick edge-to-edge transitions and effortless turn initiation in tight spaces.
A high-density sintered Area 51 base is built for maintaining glide speed, while C/FX Basalt pairs with a stiffer flex for stability while charging.

BOARD PROFILE: 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.
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.
FIBER & RESIN: C/FX Basalt
A patented combination of fiberglass and basalt designed to provide an optimal ratio of weight, power, and dampening.
A blend of elliptic curves for easy turn initiation, effortless direction changes and fluid edge to edge transitions.
FIBER & RESIN: BA MD fiberglass
Medium density European-made fiberglass layers guarantee a consistent quality level, for light and lively boards.
FIBER & RESIN: GreenPoxy 28
This bio-epoxy resin is made with 28% of its molecular structure derived from plants.
ADDITIVES: 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.
The core is strategically milled inside of the insert packs, allowing the board to flex more naturally underfoot and transfer energy into the nose and tail for added pop.
CORE TYPE: Aspen SLCT
Every single wood strip is hand selected to ensure unparalleled core quality and lightness.
BASE MATERIAL: 50% recycled sintered base
50% recycled base materials! Reducing waste without sacrificing glide!
BASE FINISHING: 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.
BASE FINISHING: Natural wax
A paraffin-free wax compound made from natural ingredients. A non-pollutant compound held to the highest standards of glide speed.
EDGE FINISHING: All mountain EB
All mountain ready, right out of the wrapper. Equipped with a 1-degree bevel in the nose and tail and a 2-degree bevel between the feet for superior edge hold and no hang ups.
SUSPENSION: 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.
SUSPENSION: Recycled ABS
Recycled ABS is used to reduce the impact of petroleum based materials.
