CAPITA: 

THE BLACK SNOWBOARD OF DEATH

With legendary status as an all-terrain slayer, The CAPiTA Black Snowboard of Death leans toward the mountain side of riding with a custom-designed rockered nose, a subtle 5mm tapered tail, and positive camber through the mid-section. This allows for tons of pop, insane control, and flotation in powder — making you a better snowboarder in variable terrain and changing conditions.

The 2016/17 model features a lower tip height, stronger flex pattern, and an elongat-ed positive camber section. Combined with the Hover Core™, NANO-Carbon forks, and an Olympic level NANO-Carbon Race Base™, The Black Snowboard of Deathstands as one of the most advanced snowboards available.

Rider Type: Advanced Freerider that loves Pow

Flex: 6.5

Camber: Mountain Profile

The MOUNTAIN Profile features mid-body camber with a flat tail and a reverse cambered nose. This allows for tons of pop and stability on hard pack while increasing float and landing power, improving the rider’s performance in deep snow.

ULTRAFEAR

As a three-time Transworld Good Wood Award winner and star of endless video segments, no board has seen more screen time than CAPiTA’s team favorite, the ULTRAFEAR. New for 2016, we’ve added a new low-tem-perature EVO Resin along with a fast and easy to maintain base making one of the great jib and park boards in the world even better.

Rider Type: Advanced Urban and park

Flex: 5.5

Camber: Freestyle Profile

These versatile boards feature a dual reverse camber Flat Kick freestyle shape. Flat based from outer insert to outer insert provides stability at high speeds on groomed runs. Elevated contact points turn on a dime and float effortlessly while stomping in powder.

DEFENDERS OF AWESOME

The Defenders of Awesome series has a big reputation and these boards back it up. And when we say they back it up, we mean they back to back to back it up — and then they back it up again. As winners of the most coveted design award in snowboarding four years in a row, this highly sought after series now has won a Transworld Good Wood Award every single year of its existence. Let’s talk about being undefeated. It’s one of the best in the game and has the accolades to prove it. The DOAfeatures a next-generation hybrid camber design, which delivers the pop and response of a camber board with the predictability of reverse camber. This truly is the go anywhere, do anything freestyle deck.

Rider Type: Progressive All-Resort

Flex: 5.5

Camber: Hybrid Camber Profile

Our Hybrid Camber Profile boards take full advantage of the benefits of traditional camber, zero camber, and reverse camber. This next generation design allows you to get the pop and response of a cambered board with all the predictability and easy turn initiation of zero camber or reverse camber shapes.
