Product Info

The CAPiTA Birds Of A Feather Snowboard will have you flying high - whether you are dashing down the groomers, floating through pow, or fluttering through the park. The BOAF is a do-anything, go-anywhere board that is here to change your riding forever. Featuring a poppy, reforestation-certified wood core, a fast and durable sintered base, and carbon fiber beams for increased response, the CAPiTA Birds Of A Feather Snowboard is a great choice for riders of all ages, sizes, and ability levels.

Product Details

Rocker Type

Hybrid FKCAPiTA'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 TechnologyWith 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 Rating: 4 (1 Soft - 10 Stiff)Jib, press, and jump your way to victory with a board that's flexible and ready to destroy anything urban or park oriented.

Shape

Blended Radial SidecutBlended Radial sidecuts feature a single radius arc through the midsection of the board combined with a custom designed 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.

True TwinRide switch, regular, or upside down, this board won't care; completely symmetrical from tip to tail.

Core

RFC Sustainable CoreEco-friendly core construction. RFC cores are made with a single species Poplar grain creating a smooth and consistent ride. Extending the entirety of the board, the wood has no knots or joints to ensure you have a responsive ride with a uniform flex pattern.

Laminates

Special Blend Eco TechAn 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 x 30 mm Carbon Fiber Beams

Sidewalls

Full ABS Sidewalls

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 are consistently the dominant first choice of pro snowboarders worldwide.

    Comments about CAPiTA Birds Of A Feather Snowboard - Women's 2015:

    This board makes riding so much easier than my previous board (2014 GNU BNice). I took it with me to Jackson Hole last week and boy was it fun! I was able to turn with ease...even on the steepest runs! Easy to carve and perfect for powder days. My husband purchased this as a gift for me at the Evo store in Seattle. It was between this board and the Salomon Gypsy...and the guys at Evo recommended Capita. Those guys know their stuff! So thrilled with this board!

    Comments about CAPiTA Birds Of A Feather Snowboard - Women's 2015:

    This board RIPS, I love it. So buttery, so light and so fast. Those sidewalls are killer and the board is just an allover RIPPER.

    Definitely a board to step up your abilities.
