Product Info

Expect your riding to emulate the gracefulness of a feather drifting in the breeze when you have the CAPiTA Birds of A Feather Snowboard underfoot. The twin profile and mild flex make for a versatile deck that is playful, damp and forgiving for all mountain side hit days, yet sturdy and responsive for high-speed carves on groomers. Ultra-rapid edge-to-edge transitions and smooth presses, CAPiTA s Hybrid Flatkick unlocks the doors to progression, no matter what the terrain is. Whether you're learning tricks on boxes or riding a slalom course, the flat tip and tail provide a stable platform for jibbing and help the board plane on top of the powder. Through the thick snow, and the thin spring slush, the CAPiTA Birds of A Feather Snowboard promises to shred true to you.

Product Details

Rocker Type

Hybrid FlatkickEquips the board with the poppy response of camber, the predictable easy turn initiation of flat, and the playfulness of rocker.

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

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

Core

RFC Sustainable Dual Core™Capita's DS Select RFC eco wood core is extremely lightweight, promoting a smooth and even flex to create a powerful, poppy ride. Beechwood is placed along the rails, enabling the rider to hold a solid edge when carving, eliminating chatter at high speeds and concentrating the rider input energy for more powerful ollies. Poplar wood strips increase strength and absorb vibrations.

Laminates

Special Blend EVO | 2 x 30 mm Carbon Fiber BeamsThis laminate does not contain the harsh chemicals commonly used during the snowboard laminating process. Instead, Capita's eco-friendly fiberglass configuration is comprised of a polyurethane based resin component which consumes less energy yet produces a product containing higher technical properties. Dual carbon beams that run parallel to the edges create a deck that is strong, durable, and lightweight with increased power and response.

Sidewalls

Full ABS Silkscreened Fortress™ Kevlar Bound SidewallsA highly durable and lightweight sidewall technology that binds the sidewall and core material together to create an insanely long lasting, strong deck.

Base

Wax Infused Rotation Sintered Base + Titanal Base InlayThese 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 and durable.

Die-cut Base | Multitech™ SilkscreenBase color displayed may not be available. Base colors may vary.

Edges

360˚ Steel Edges

Topsheet

Level 5 DeepSpace™ Metallic Silkscreen + PLT Topsheet TechnologyThe environmentally-conscious PLT technology reduces the need for harmful chemicals while creating a high-quality and glossy metallic topsheet. Paired with DeepSpace™ advanced ink bonding and curing technologies for a killer graphic.

      Comments about CAPiTA Birds of A Feather Snowboard - Women's 2016:

      Two seasons ago I bought a gnu velvet gnuru. It was very flexy and fun for buttering and goofing around, but I just never felt solid on it. I would lose edges on the groomed runs and suffered through powder like I was riding a wet noodle. I was very frustrated with myself and thought that it was just me. I couldn't shake the feeling that I just had no confidence on the board. I know it rated well with many others, but for me it just didn't click.

      This year, I wanted to go back to a camber board, but I was drawn to the shape of the birds of a feather. I thought it was really unique to have camber between the feet and rocker out to the nose and tail. Buying this board was the best decision I have made in a long time.

      I've ridden through powder, groomers, the park and just goofing around the mountain. It is as if I just accelerated my progression in a matter of days. I feel as if I had this board a few years ago, I would have been much farther in my riding than I am now. I feel completely SOLID on this board. I am confident hitting just about anything.

      I also bought Now bindings to go with it and it's as if I never feel any chatter through the board. The combination leaves me just loving every second of a day riding.

      I really don't want to ride anything else now that I have this board. Only if I had bought it sooner...

        I won't recommend this snowboard to beginners. But if you have ridden for several years and want to improve your ability to next level, this is the board you need.
