This hybrid camber all-terrain destroyer is back again as a favorite of Women's Rider of the Year Jess Kimura and many more. The CAPiTA Birds Of A Feather Women's Snowboard gives you the stability of a traditional camber board with the predictability and ease of control and turns from zero or reverse camber boards. No matter where you take it this board will give you the wings to fly.
Rocker Type
Hybrid Reverse Camber - Camber through the mid-section, a zero-hybrid tail and a custom designed rocker in the nose make this board the ultimate all-mountain machine.
 
Flat Kick Technology - With Flat Kick design technology CAPiTA has tightened the profile radius that blends the shoulders of the board into the tip and tail height. This is a key area that influences the tempo and feel of turn initiation. With traditional larger tip and tail arcs, the loaded camber contributes to a board's acceleration into a turn. On reverse camber boards the contact points are elevated, removing this camber contribution. As a result, the same traditional tip and tail radii would make the board feel sluggish. Specialized Flat Kick tip and tail arcs combined with elevated reverse camber contact points achieve the ideal tempo into turns. This allows you to have the shorter effective edge of a forgiving, easy to ride, reverse camber snowboard that is still responsive and quick during edge-to-edge transitions.
Flex
4 Flex - 4, perfect for all-mountain freestyle
Shape
Radial True Twin - A radial sidecut is a single radius design causing your board to start and finish a turn on the same arc.
Sidecut
Blended radial - Blended radial sidecuts feature a single radius arc though the midsection of the board combined with a custom blend zone at the contact points. Varying the length of these blend zones and tailoring them specifically for certain aspects of riding greatly improves the board's performance.
Core
SS Select Core - Engineered to ride the whole mountain, the SS Select Core provides a perfect balance between energy, reliability, stability and pop. Vertically laminated poplar is lightweight and has a long grain orientation. There are no irregularities or finger joints allowing for consistent uniform flex throughout the deck.
Laminates
Form 6 - This configuration consists of biaxial fiberglass placed on both the base and topside of the core, each layer having fibers oriented in zero and 90 degree angles, laminated to increase energy and durability. This provides a durable and predictable board while retaining necessary pop.
Sidewalls
Die cut sidewalls
Base
XXX[TRUDED] - This base material takes the characteristics of manufacturing techniques used in creating normal extruded base material but due to higher pressure and temperature, increases the surface hardness to levels near most sintered bases. This increases the durability and surface strength creating a base that will last longer and be more durable when jibbing and bombing around the mountain.
Edges
360 degree steel edges
Topsheet
PLT topsheet technology
Graphics
Die cut + Silkscreened combo base graphics
Additional Features
Black Fleece Additives - This thin layer of black glass increases strength in key break zones helping to reduce board failure.
2x20 mm Carbon + Kevlar Beams - Carbon is one of the most responsive, lightweight materials available. Kevlar is one of the strongest, most durable materials available. The combination yields an optimum blend of performance and reliability in snowboard construction.

Specs

  • Terrain: All-Mountain, Freestyle
    All-Mountain
    All-mountain snowboards are designed for exploring the whole mountain. They are your go-to for a snowboard that will do anything. They feel at home on groomers, powder, park runs and almost anything in between. The vast majority of snowboarders choose all-mountain boards for their great versatility. If you’re just getting started or unsure of exactly what you need, an all-mountain snowboard is a great choice.
    Freestyle
    Freestyle or park snowboards tend to be a bit shorter in length and love terrain parks, rails, jibs, trash cans, tree trunks, riding switch (non-dominant foot forward), wall rides and more. Freestyle boards often feature a true twin shape, and are typically selected by those looking to ride the terrain park. A more versatile variant of a freestyle board is the all-mountain freestyle, which combines the versatility of an all mountain snowboard with the playfulness of a freestyle snowboard.
  • Ability Level: Advanced-Expert
    Advanced-Expert
    Whether you charge the steepest lines, carve with race-like precision, hit the biggest jumps or halfpipes; advanced to expert level skis/snowboards are for the more aggressive rider. You will often find the addition of layers of metal, carbon, bamboo, or other stringers in these. These features work to make a stiffer ski/snowboard with more power and rebound.
  • Rocker Type: Flat/Camber/Flat
    Flat/Camber/Flat
    This profile is very similar to full camber, except that it has a mellower flat area from the bindings out. This will make it more forgiving and easier to do some tricks in the park.
  • Flex Rating: Medium
    Medium
    The amount a snowboard flexes varies significantly between boards. Snowboard flex ratings are not necessarily standardized across manufacturers, so the flex may vary from brand to brand. Many manufacturers will give a number rating ranging from 1-10, 1 being softest and 10 being stiffest. Here at evo we have standardized the manufacturers' number ratings to a feel rating ranging from soft to very stiff. Generally you will find flex ratings of 1-2 as soft, 3-5 as medium, 6-8 as stiff, and 9-10 as very stiff. Flex ratings and feel may ultimately vary from snowboard to snowboard.

Specs

  • Ability Level: Intermediate-Advanced
    Intermediate-Advanced
    The majority of skiers/snowboarders fall into this level, whether you like to carve on groomers or venture into the powder. These skis/snowboards may be somewhat wider than beginner-intermediate skis, usually with a stronger wood core and sandwich sidewall construction. Depending on the type of ski, intermediate-advanced level skis may have full camber, rocker, or some combination of the two.
