Mervin Mfg’s Banana Technology and Magne-Traction Snowboard Designs Sweep ‘08 Board Test Awards!

Mervin’s all terrain freestyle snowboard specific geometries met with overwhelming success in ‘08 board tests…Banana Tech- “rocker between your feet” – and Magne-Traction -strategically located serrated edges- are revolutionary departures from traditional ski based, one pressure point, camber snowboard designs…Both designs are premised on the fact that snowboarders ride with two feet on one board in a wide stable freestyle stance…Magne-Traction improves edgehold and Banana completely reworks the snowboard pressure map…full edge contact is maintained but edge pressure is now focused between and at your feet, the board is pre-bent into a natural turning arc and the tips and tails are less weighted for lift, deflection and catch free jib insanity…Banana-Mag snowboards are easier to ride everywhere for everyone… The Future is Bananas!

    I love the new banana technology and magne-traction so much that I can never ride a old style board again, except my split board. I own the Temple Cummins 162 Billy Goat. I did more tricks on the hard pack this year and everyone said that the Banana technology wouldn’t be as good for the hard pack, they were all wrong. Way to go on the improvements. I have been riding since 85 in Montana. You guys rock over there at Mervin Keep it up.
