Product Details

Rocker Type

Hybrid Camber ProfileHybrid Camber Profile 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.


5.5(1 Soft - 10 Stiff)


DS Select RFC Sustainable Dual Core™Poppy lightweight poplar core combined with beech stringers for increased power and durability.


Carbon Fiber BeamsKnown for its rigidity, high tensile strength, low weight, high temperature tolerance, and low thermal expansion, Carbon Fiber is one of the most popular materials used in today's high performance applications. This lightweight, strong material, when molded into a snowboard, increases power and response while remaining ultralight.

Dynaweave™ FiberglassThe Dynaweave™ configuration features triaxial fiberglass on the top of the core and biaxial fiberglass beneath, creating more response while increasing strength and durability. Combine this layup with a specialized resin and one of the many additives CAPiTA has available and you get a high performing board tailored to meet your style of riding.

Plant Based Evo ResinLow temperature requirement, consistent and durable output. This resin system has a bio-content of 60% renewable, agricultural raw materials. It is plant based that does not compete with primary food sources and is produced with no waste or green house emissions.


Fortress™ Kevlar Bound SidewallsSidewalls are bonded by a Kevlar "S" wrap from the top of the sidewall to the underside of the fore. For 2016/2017, a new kevlar shape provides an even lighter weight technology that binds the sidewall and core material together like no other.


Wax Infused Enduro™ BaseThis base material strikes a unique and sought after balance between high performance and low maintenance. These bases are highly wax absorbent and allow longer time periods between waxing sessions.

    Super solid board. It holds its own where ever you take it, whether that's in powder, the park, or on pavement it's up to you. I ride pretty much everywhere on the mountain and this board hasn't let me down yet.

    Comments about CAPiTA Defenders of Awesome Snowboard 2017:

    DON'T BUY! Hey guys I was so stoked on this board and it rode great for the first 5 to 6 times then I had some major issues. With my first Board, about the 5th time riding it the thing came delaminated! Then back country hooked it up their warranty program so shout out to them. However with the new boar, 3rd time out again the side wall blew out in 2 spots on my toe side edge! I contacted capita and they refused to help and were quite rude as well. Its a great board when it works but I don't feel that it is a quality product and wouldn't waste your money on it.
