Birds Of A Feather Snowboard - Women's 2014

This hybrid camber all-terrain destroyer is back again as a favorite of Women's Rider of the Year Jess Kimura and many more. The CAPiTA Birds Of A Feather Women's Snowboard gives you the stability of a traditional camber board with the predictability and ease of control and turns from zero or reverse camber boards. No matter where you take it this board will give you the wings to fly.

Product Details

Rocker Type

Hybrid Reverse CamberCamber through the mid-section, a zero-hybrid tail and a custom designed rocker in the nose make this board the ultimate all-mountain machine.

Flat Kick TechnologyWith 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.

Flex

4 Flex4, perfect for all-mountain freestyle

Shape

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

Sidecut

Blended radialBlended radial sidecuts feature a single radius arc though the midsection of the board combined with a custom 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

SS Select CoreEngineered to ride the whole mountain, the SS Select Core provides a perfect balance between energy, reliability, stability and pop. Vertically laminated poplar is lightweight and has a long grain orientation. There are no irregularities or finger joints allowing for consistent uniform flex throughout the deck.

Laminates

Form 6Biaxial fiberglass is placed on both the base and top of the board. This provides a durable and predictable snowboard with plenty of pop.

Sidewalls

Die cut sidewalls

Base

XXX[TRUDED]This base material takes the characteristics of manufacturing techniques used in creating normal extruded base material but due to higher pressure and temperature, increases the surface hardness to levels near most sintered bases. This increases the durability and surface strength creating a base that will last longer and be more durable when jibbing and bombing around the mountain.

Additional Features

Black Fleece AdditivesThis thin layer of black glass increases strength in key break zones helping to reduce board failure.

2x20 mm Carbon + Kevlar BeamsCarbon is one of the most responsive, lightweight materials available. Kevlar is one of the strongest, most durable materials available. The combination yields an optimum blend of performance and reliability in snowboard construction.
