Birds of a Feather FK Snowboard - Women's 2013

A true all-mountain board, the CAPiTA Birds of a Feather FK Snowboard is constructed with a Rocker/Camber/Rocker profile. This Hybrid FK profile offers you the best of both worlds: perfect pop for the park and easy float over deep pow. Add in the SS Select Core and you have the perfect balance between energy, stability and pop. When the entire mountain is asking to be burned up in a day, make sure your equipment can support your sick shred habits; make sure your board is the CAPiTA Birds of a Feather FK Snowboard.

Product Details

Rocker Type

Hybrid FKCAPiTA's newest camber profile takes full advantage of the benefits of traditional camber, zero camber and reverse camber. This next generation design allows you to get all the pop and response from a cambered board while still having the predictability and easy ride from zero and reverse camber shapes.

Flat KickSpecialized 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 gives quick edge to edge transfer.

Flex

Flex Rating (1 Soft - 10 Stiff)5, perfect for all-mountain riding

Sidecut

Radial True TwinA radial sidecut is a single radius design causing your board to start and finish a turn on the same arc.

Core

SS Select CoreEngineered for "anytime, anywhere" performance reliability, the SS Select provides a perfect balance between energy, stability and pop. Vertically laminated poplar is lightweight and has a long grain orientation. There are no irregularities allowing for consistent uniform flex throughout the deck.

Laminates

Form 6-KThis glass configuration consists of 612 gram/meters-squared biaxial fiberglass placed on both the base and topside of the core at 0˚ and 90˚ angles. This configuration results in a board that initiates turns easily, while retaining the pop necessary to handle variable conditions. The Form 6-K laminate system is laid up wet by hand during the lamination process. This also features carbon kevlar stringers to further increase ollie power and response.

Base

HMC ExtrudedA low maintenance, user-friendly base that preforms well with or without constant waxing and attention: the HMC is a special "high molecular concept" base that is denser, more durable, and more abrasion resistant than standard extruded bases. The result is a hard, fast and reliable base that will get you where you want to go fast.

Milan Snowboard Bindings - Women's 2013

A fancy binding with a lot of look to go hand-in-hand with a lot of technology, the Union Milan Snowboard Bindings are for the ladies who expect their hardware to drive hard till the death. Constructed with the most durable metals and materials shaped specifically for women, like the Dupont™ Zytel® ST Milan baseplates and extruded aluminum heelcups, the Milans are prepared for all the bashing, bails, wear and tear you can inflict. An all-new strap system for holding your feet in place plus EVA bushings for damping vibrations underfoot gives you more control, so you step up your A-game.

Additional Features

Extruded Anodized Aluminum HeelcupsThe strongest and most versatile aluminum heelcup on the market, extruded aluminum comes out 100% pure and maintains its true shape no matter how much wear and tear you inflict. Also, every Union heelcup undergoes an anodizing process—reinforcing the already bombproof apparatus with 30% more strength.

Grade 8.8 HardwareThe most commonly used hardware is made from "mild steel" that has a property class of only 4.6. Considering how much stress a binding goes through, Union uses only the highest-strength steel, with a property class of 8.8.
