Product Details

Rocker Type

Hybrid FKCAPiTA'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.

Flex

Flex Rating (1 Soft - 10 Stiff)5, perfect for freestyle riding

Sidecut

Radial True TwinA radial sidecut is a single radius design causing your board to start and finish a turn on the same arc.

Core

SS Select CoreEngineered 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-KThis 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 ExtrudedA 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.

I usually ride a 155 and try to go all mountian freestyle. This board was very responsive, poppy, and was easy to ride. Recommend to all.

Mid Flex for a Progressive Freestyler

Comments about CAPiTA Defenders of Awesome FK Snowboard 2013:

Great freestyle board, good versatility w/ camber and rocker combo. Very easy to ride/ turn. Playful for jibbing and buttering. Edges held surprisingly well. Board was a great fit for me being a park/freestyle rider.

No Need to Defend Awesome...Cause it is.

Comments about CAPiTA Defenders of Awesome FK Snowboard 2013:

This board is similar to a softer version of the TFA. Has a softer feel while still giving you awesome pop. Camber under foot with a larger flat camber section toward tip and tail, while still having the reverse camber right at the nose/tail. The flat camber will give you a more bite and control with a bigger contact point. This board will excel all over the mountain so if you prefer a medflex board that can do park runs or hike your favorite line, then you found your board....

Comments about CAPiTA Defenders of Awesome FK Snowboard 2013:

Fun board. Good on mess around days. Groomers for sure. Fast. A little soft. Good edge control. I am a charger/BC guy- No park for me but I think it would be fun for jibbing.

Comments about CAPiTA Defenders of Awesome FK Snowboard 2013:

Jack. Of. All. Trades. Such a fun board. It never felt like it was out of it's element. Ripped groomers, butters but has a really fluid pop that is easy to control but surprises you at first. If the Most Interesting Man in the World sold you his board- this would be it, but it might have a shark bite in it. I am about 5'10" 160lbs and riding the 154 seemed like a really good size for a playful jibbing morning; but I would size up to a 156 or 158 if I wanted to get more off trail.

I am 5'10" 190# and took out a 156 DOA for afternoon spring time fun. Super fun to launch of natural hits but could charge through chopped up slop. Forgiving flex made for a fun ride.

Very fun board to ride. It handled well in the hard pack or in the mashed potatoes. A board you could ride all condition on and have a blast on.

2013 DOA -154 -Great Board

Comments about CAPiTA Defenders of Awesome FK Snowboard 2013:

I am 5'9" 170lbs and rode this bad-boy on a late spring day on both groomers and laps through the park. Super responsive w/ the light mix of stiffness in/out of turns at high speeds and flex on rails and flats. Good pop, and seems to be an extremely versatile ride.
