Product Info

Back again to defend its title as the best freestyle, all-mountain snowboard in the land, the CAPiTA Defenders of Awesome Snowboard is the obvious choice for any rider seeking a durable, fun and versatile board. Sure, the Defenders of Awesome might be recognized for its not-so-mom-approved graphic, but it features Capita's coveted Hybrid Flat Kick Technology, sorry mom! Hybrid FK grants you the pop, response, and board control of camber, plus the stability and versatility of a flat surface underfoot. The DOA is crafted from sustainable wood and has a snappy flex that makes for damp landings and immediate edge-to-edge transitions, without hindering the board's ability to jib. There's no wonder why CAPiTA s Defenders of Awesome Snowboard has won the Transworld Good Wood test three years running - it is just that AWESOME!

Product Details

Rocker Type

Mountain Flatkick V2Subtle positive camber between the bindings intersects a flat section before turning into reverse camber. Both the tip and tail have a section of reverse camber (rocker) at the contact points. The result is tons of pop and stability on hardpack, easy float and landing power, improving rider performance in deep snow.

Flex

Flex Rating: 6 (1 Soft - 10 Stiff)This mildly stiff flexing snowboard offers a responsive, fun and agile freestyle-oriented ride you can take anywhere.

Shape

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

Blended Radial SidecutThe 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.

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™ 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.

Graphics

Sublimation BaseA graphic technology where the ink is pushed through a substrate into base material using pressure and heat. This creates a very vibrant graphic.

Binding Compatibility

4 x 2 Inserts

Comments about CAPiTA Defenders of Awesome Snowboard 2016:

The DOA latches onto groomers like an eagle catching his offsprings dinner and blasts off side hits. Super fun to bomb hills and ollie off rollers. Combined with the Union Contact Pros and i've yet to hold a setup lighter. Still holds it own in the powder but would grab my rockered board when there is more than 7-8 inches of fresh. Absolutely killer board tho.

    Comments about CAPiTA Defenders of Awesome Snowboard 2016:

    I am deeply honored to have ridden this creation in this generation. I learned a lot with this snowboard. I had a blast. Just make sure to keep those edges well maintained along with fresh wax every 1 or 2 days of use and you'll have a good time. Bomb down that groomed black diamond trail, get low, and prepare to rail every carves.
