A true all-mountain board, the CAPiTA Birds of a Feather FK Snowboard is constructed with a Rocker/Camber/Rocker profile. This Hybrid FK profile offers you the best of both worlds: perfect pop for the park and easy float over deep pow. Add in the SS Select Core and you have the perfect balance between energy, stability and pop. When the entire mountain is asking to be burned up in a day, make sure your equipment can support your sick shred habits; make sure your board is the CAPiTA Birds of a Feather FK Snowboard.
Rocker Type
Hybrid FK - CAPiTA's newest camber profile takes full advantage of the benefits of traditional camber, zero camber and reverse camber. This next generation design allows you to get all the pop and response from a cambered board while still having the predictability and easy ride from zero and reverse camber shapes.
Flat Kick - 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 gives quick edge to edge transfer.
Flex
Flex Rating (1 Soft - 10 Stiff) - 5, perfect for all-mountain riding
Sidecut
Radial True Twin - A radial sidecut is a single radius design causing your board to start and finish a turn on the same arc.
Core
SS Select Core - Engineered for "anytime, anywhere" performance reliability, the SS Select provides a perfect balance between energy, stability and pop. Vertically laminated poplar is lightweight and has a long grain orientation. There are no irregularities allowing for consistent uniform flex throughout the deck.
Laminates
Form 6-K - This glass configuration consists of 612 gram/meters-squared biaxial fiberglass placed on both the base and topside of the core at 0˚ and 90˚ angles. This configuration results in a board that initiates turns easily, while retaining the pop necessary to handle variable conditions. The Form 6-K laminate system is laid up wet by hand during the lamination process. This also features carbon kevlar stringers to further increase ollie power and response.
Base
HMC Extruded - A low maintenance, user-friendly base that preforms well with or without constant waxing and attention: the HMC is a special "high molecular concept" base that is denser, more durable, and more abrasion resistant than standard extruded bases. The result is a hard, fast and reliable base that will get you where you want to go fast.
Edges
360˚ Steel Edge
Topsheet
PLT Topsheet
Binding Compatibility
2 x 4 Mounting Inserts - Gives the rider more mounting options

Specs

  • Terrain: Freestyle
    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: Rocker/Camber/Rocker
    Rocker/Camber/Rocker
    Rocker/Camber/Rocker shapes seek to give you both hard-carving edgehold on firm snow from camber underfoot with enhanced turnability and float in powder from the rockered tip and tail. This profile is increasingly popular for freeride boards designed primarily for soft snow.
  • 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.

  • 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.
  • Binding Style: Strap
  • Warranty: Lifetime Warranty on Base
