Comments about CAPiTA Green Machine FK Snowboard 2012:
I am an all mountain rider that rides every feature the mountain has to offer. From Jibs to glade powder. I have been riding an old regular cambered nitro for the last 5 years. This year I finally went out and decided to grab a new deck after a buddy of mine convinced me that my riding and overall enjoyment of riding would improve if I started riding a better board.
Needless to say, did my entire world change when i picked up this board. As much as these boards get labeled as park specific, I can truly vouch that this board does it all.
My primary concern when switching to this board was the stability at high speed, coming from a cambered stiffer board, I was worried that when i really started flying that the board would loose its edge or give the odd speed wobble, needless to the say, this board is dialed...I can go as fast as i want without any worries that the board is going to give out.
The main selling point of this board to me is the forgiveness. The FK makes landing even sketchy and off balance possible. For someone like me who is beginning to learn spins and other park tactics, this board has brought a whole different level of comfort to my riding. The board is so un-edgy its night and day compared to riding a cambered board. The board never grabs when i dont want it to, but when you need to slam on the brakes or turn fast, the flat camber makes turning feel super light and fast. The board also turns awesome at low speeds.
The flex and pop on this board is also awesome. Its so easy to pop off bumps and little booters. Its almost impossible not get catch air.
Finally the flex is sweet. Pressing and buttering this board is a cinch.
With the terrible weather we have been having in Ontario this season, I unfortunately have not got to test out the board in powder yet, but I trust that the FK will make this baby float like a cloud.
