It's time to keep it real in the snowboard world. You don't need energy drink sponsors, triple corks, or personal cameras filming your every move. The CAPiTA Defenders of Awesome Snowboard is all about good times with the homies, boosting methods, and the almighty apres-shred. The Defender of Awesome a.k.a. DOA features CAPiTA's Hybrid FK camber profile. In short, camber to flat to a tiny bit of rocker at the contact points, this profile allows for the power and pop of camber while remaining predictable and easy to press in the nose and tail. Plus the 30mm Carbon fiber beams give enough pop to clear the highest of slow signs. The CAPiTA Defenders of Awesome Snowboard keeps it real all over the mountain. Sorry about the graphics mom.
Hybrid FK CAPiTA'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 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.
5.5 Flex Rating Buttery smooth perfection for all-mountain shred
True Twin Ride switch, regular, or upside down, this board won't care; completely symmetrical from tip to tail.
Blended Radial Sidecut Blended 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.
RFC Sustainable Core Eco-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.
Special Blend Eco Tech An 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
Full ABS Sidewalls
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 dominant first choice of pro snowboarders worldwide.
