Product Info

A common mistake most companies make while designing a powder specific board is to carry the rocker profile throughout the entire board, forcing you to work harder to keep your body weight properly distributed. Luckily for you, the CAPiTA Charlie Slasher FK Snowboard has not made this mistake! Having a rockered nose blend into a flat profile that carries throughout the tail allows you to conserve your energy, and transform those incredibly tiring powder days into incredible, epic pow days. An RFC Sustainable Core ensures you get a uniform flex pattern due to the poplar wood that contains no irregularities. For a board that will rip up the deepest powder bowls, check out the CAPiTA Charlie Slasher FK Snowboard.

Product Details

Rocker Type

POW FKMono reverse camber FK for powder allows your nose to float above the snowline, while retaining power throughout the tail to stomp landings and slash the hell out of everything.

Flat KickSpecialized 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)6, perfect for powder and all-mountain riding

Sidecut

Radial TaperEngineered specifically for deep powder riding, this radial sidecut is complemented by a tapered tail. This narrower tail section naturally sinks in the powder while a wider nose section floats above the snow line. The result is less work and more fun as the board surfs on one smooth continual arc.

Core

RFC Sustainable CoreThe original eco-friendly core offers a sustainable alternative without sacrificing any of the energy or stability expected from a CAPiTA core. Made from poplar wood, that is 100% sustainable, containing no irregularities which allows for an enhanced response and uniform flex pattern.

Laminates

Form 6-CConsisting of 612 grams/meter-squared biaxial fiberglass laminated with the Special Blend Evo Tech resin to increase energy and durability, this progressive glass configuration is laid up wet by hand during the lamination process. Also featuring 30 mm carbon fiber beams to strengthen the nose area of the board's unique shape in order to power through deep powder.

Base

Wax Infused Rotation Sintered BaseThese 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 the overwhelming choice of pro snowboarders worldwide.
