Dan Brisse is one of the most versatile snowboarders on the planet. Having said that, he demands quite the arsenal of boards to be able to keep up with his crazy backcountry style, park madness and groomer slaying ability. This year the CAPiTA DBX Snowboard offers a wide array of options, from park to powder. There's a reverse camber 151 for jibbing, a zero camber 154 for the terrain-park and cruising resorts, and a hybrid camber 157 for powder jumps and backcountry days. Pick your poison, but pick it wisely; because honestly, these boards vary quite a bit although they all reside under the same name.
Rocker Type
Flat Kick Technology - With 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.
DBX 151; Freestyle FK - Dual reverse camber FK freestyle shape. Flat based from outer insert to out insert provides stability at high speeds on groomed runs. Elevated contact points turn on a dime and float effortlessly while stomping in powder.
 
DBX 154; Zero Camber - Flat camber from contact point to contact point provides a slightly looser, easier to ride feel, without reducing the effective edge that results from full rocker shapes.
 
DBX 157; Freeride FK - This revolutionary all-mountain shape provides the best of both worlds. It has a raised camber platform through the inserts to retain high-speed edge hold through variable terrain, and elevated contact points to land and float in powder.
 
Flex
DBX 151; 5 Flex - 5, perfect for all-mountain riding.
DBX 154; 5 Flex - 5, perfect for all-mountain riding.
DBX 157; 7 Flex - 7, perfect for freestyle riding and all-mountain riding.
Sidecut
DBX 151; Radial - A radial sidecut is a single radius design that allows your board to start and finish a turn on the same arc. Centered stance.
DBX 154; Radial - A radial sidecut is a single radius design that allows your board to start and finish a turn on the same arc. Centered stance.
DBX 157; New Age Directional - CAPiTA's New Age Directional sidecut is a progressive sidecut which incorporates a reverse sidecut arc in the midsection of the board. Due to a reduced effective edge as a result of hybrid camber shapes, this reverse camber arc provides a point of contact to retain control throughout the turn. .5" Setback stance.
Core
RFC sustainable Bamboo Dual Core - With Dan Brisse's riding style in mind, the RFC Sustainable Bamboo Dual core was designed to perform when it's all on the line. Ollie powder, strength, dampening, and reliability were terms emphasized in the design room. This poplar based core has been beefed up with bamboo stringers through the inserts as well as along the edges. This increases the energy throughout the board making it more responsive and powerful. Since bamboo is one of the strongest woods available, durability goes through the roof allowing you to go bigger, faster, and jib with confidence in even the sketchiest scenarios.
Laminates
Custom Weave - The CUSTOM WEAVE configuration features a resin/glass application borrowed from the marine industry, which yields much stronger and rigid qualities allowing the board to have decreased wood core thickness. The main focus is to save wood core weight by increasing resin performance. The biaxial/triaxial fiberglass combination creates more response while increasing strength and durability.
Sidewalls
Full ABS sidewalls with silk-screened graphics.
Base
Wax infused rotation sintered base - These 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 predominate first choice of pro snowboarders worldwide.

Additional Features
Basalt Additives - Originating from solidified volcanic lava, basalt is an abundant resource long known for it's thermal properties, strength, and durability. Carefully oriented into the board, this natural material helps you increase power and pop while creating a damp, calm ride.

Specs

  • Terrain: Freestyle
    Freestyle
    Freestyle or park snowboards tend to be a bit shorter in length and love terrain parks, rails, jibs, trash cans, tree trunks, riding switch (non-dominant foot forward), wall rides and more. Freestyle boards often feature a true twin shape, and are typically selected by those looking to ride the terrain park. A more versatile variant of a freestyle board is the all-mountain freestyle, which combines the versatility of an all mountain snowboard with the playfulness of a freestyle snowboard.
  • Ability Level: Advanced-Expert
    Advanced-Expert
    Whether you charge the steepest lines, carve with race-like precision, hit the biggest jumps or halfpipes; advanced to expert level skis/snowboards are for the more aggressive rider. You will often find the addition of layers of metal, carbon, bamboo, or other stringers in these. These features work to make a stiffer ski/snowboard with more power and rebound.
  • Rocker Type: Rocker/Flat/Rocker
    Rocker/Flat/Rocker
    Rocker/Flat/Rocker is another variation on the rocker theme that seeks to provide a little more hard snow edgehold and pop than full rocker while retaining ease of turning and float. Performance is between a fully rockered board and a flat board.
  • Shape: Directional Twin
  • Flex Rating: Medium
    Medium
    The amount a snowboard flexes varies significantly between boards. Snowboard flex ratings are not necessarily standardized across manufacturers, so the flex may vary from brand to brand. Many manufacturers will give a number rating ranging from 1-10, 1 being softest and 10 being stiffest. Here at evo we have standardized the manufacturers' number ratings to a feel rating ranging from soft to very stiff. Generally you will find flex ratings of 1-2 as soft, 3-5 as medium, 6-8 as stiff, and 9-10 as very stiff. Flex ratings and feel may ultimately vary from snowboard to snowboard.
