DC Mega – SNOWBOARD BUYERS’ GUIDE REVIEW A new one from DC, this features a faster base, a stiffer flex and a lighter construction than the Ply, meaning it’s better suited to aggressive riding. It’s not a freeride-focussed machine by any means, but if you like going hard and hitting big kickers it’s well worth a look. After all, there’s gotta be a reason why Torstein Horgmo and Aaron Bittner have pro versions of the Mega hasn’t there?.

DC Mega – WHAT THE BRAND SAYS The DC Mega rides like the PLY but on steroids even Torstein is stoked that Nicole's got a brand spanking new rack this year.
