Totally FK'n Awesome Snowboard 2013

After breaking onto the scene last year, the 2013 CAPiTA Totally FK'n Awesome Snowboard has upped its own game. Using Flat Kick and Freeride FK rocker technology, the TFA gives you the ability to seamlessly float over any snow condition you come across. If you happen to end up on a sheet of ice, the 360˚ Steel Edge combined with a cambered midsection will allow you to grip-it and rip-it while still maintaining complete control. When the entire mountain needs conquering in one day, the only weapon you'll need is the CAPiTA Totally FK'n Awesome! Snowboard.

Product Details

Rocker Type

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.

Freeride FKThis 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

Flex Rating (1 Soft - 10 Stiff)7, perfect for freeriding and all-mountain riding

Sidecut

New Age DirectionalA reverse side cut arc is 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 and consistency throughout the turn.

Core

DS Select RFC Sustainable CoreThe wood has no irregularities or finger joints, which provides the most uniformly flexing core available. Combining poplar and beech woods to create a solid edge hold, chatter elimination at high speeds and contributing more power to ollies and landings. Poplar strips are fused with the beech sections for increased strength and vibration absorption.

Laminates

E Class Custom WeaveFeaturing a resin and glass borrowed from the marine industry, this weave yields much stronger and more rigid qualities allowing for a decreased wood core thickness. This means you get a lighter board while achieving higher energy return. 30 mm carbon fiber wings from the inserts to the contact point offers more pop and power.

Base

Wax Infused Rotation Sintered BaseThese 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 the overwhelming choice of pro snowboarders worldwide.
