Back again, with more sizes and an upgraded construction from its Transworld Top Ten Good Wood winning rookie season, the CAPiTA Defenders Of Awesome Snowboard is better than ever. With a new wax infused rotation sintered base this board is faster than ever and holds its wax like a champ. Get all the pop and response you could ever want with its aggressive hybrid camber rocker mold; strong through your turns and even stronger when you need that extra ounce of pop to jib off the top branch of an evergreen tree. Finally, the real true twin hybrid freestyle destroyer. Hot babes not included.
Rocker Type
Hybrid FK - CAPiTA's Hybrid Camber 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.
 
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
Flex 5.5 - 5.5, perfect for all-mountain riding.
Shape
True Twin - Ride switch, regular, or upside down, this board won't care; completely symmetrical from tip to tail.
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
RFC Sustainable Core - The RFC SUSTAINABLE Core is the original eco-friendly core. It's proven track record offers an environmentally conscious consumer a sustainable alternative without sacrificing any of the energy or stability expected. These cores have been re-forestation certified by a leading environmental agency for nature and habitat sustainability, and made with a single species poplar grain for a smooth, consistent ride. Extending from edge to edge and tip to tail the wood grain has no knots or finger joints enhancing response and providing a complete uniform flex pattern.
Laminates
Special Blend Evo Tech - An Eco Friendly wet lay-up process that uses a polyurethane based resin component requiring lower consumption of energy and yielding higher technical properties. This adhesion process improves the factory's working environment, as it does not contain some of the same harsh chemical characteristics used in resins at other factories. This configuration uses an optimum blend of biaxial glass laminated in conjunction with structural additives to customize performance objectives.
2 Carbon fiber beams run through the core of this board to increase integrity and equal flex patterns.
Base
Wax infused rotation sintered base - These bases are created by taking pellets of ultra-high-molecular-weight Polyethylene and compressing them through heat and pressure. The minuscule spaces left behind absorb wax and allow for extended periods of high speed shredding as the wax wicks to the surface while you ride. This prevents your base from drying out and keeps the surface feeling freshly waxed throughout the day. Properly maintained sintered bases are fast, durable, and are consistently the predominate first choice of pro snowboarders worldwide.

  • Terrain: Freeride
    Freeride
    Freeride snowboards are designed for the rider that spends most of the day off groomed runs and in backcountry terrain. They typically have a stiffer flex and are ridden in longer sizes than freestyle snowboards. Freeride snowboards often feature a directional shape that is designed to perform optimally in one direction.
  • 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.
