Charlie Slasher Snowboard 2014

Designed with a rockered nose, flat tail and a tapered tail the CAPiTA Charlie Slasher Snowboard is the ultimate pow slashing machine. With the RFC Sustainable Touring Core you can split this board down the center to make one gnarly splitboard without losing the strength and water-resistance of a normal snowboard. Hack at nasty pillow lines in the slack-country or break this board in two and take it to the deep backcountry couloirs and summits. Whatever you do, we don't care, just have fun!

Product Details

Rocker Type

Pow FKMono reverse camber FK for powder allows your nose to float above the snowline, while retaining power throughout the tail to stomp landings and slash the hell out of everything.

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

6 FlexStiff enough to float through the pow and engage tough turns, but soft enough to be playful when you need it.

Shape

Tapered Tail20 mm of taper in the tail sinks the tail in deep snow and allows the nose to float. It's proven to reduce tomahawks by 38%.

Sidecut

Radical TaperEngineered specifically for deep powder riding, this radial sidecut is complemented by a tapered tail. This narrower tail section naturally sinks in the powder while the wider nose section floats above the snow line. The result is less work and more fun as the board surfs on one smooth continual arc.

Core

RFC Sustainable Touring CoreThe all new RFC Sustainable Touring Core takes the DNA of a Charlie Slasher and adds a doublewide ABS sidewall down the centerline. This allows you the versatility to keep your Charlie intact as a powder machine, or to split it down the middle into a touring set without risking water damage to the core.

Laminates

Custom WeaveThe CUSTOM WEAVE configuration features a resin/glass application borrowed from the marine industry, which yields much stronger and rigid qualities allowing the board to have decreased wood core thickness. The main focus is to save wood core weight by increasing resin performance. The biaxial/triaxial fiberglass combination creates more response while increasing strength and durability.

Sidewalls

Die cut sidewalls

Base

Wax Infused Rotation Sintered BaseCreated by taking pellets of ultra-high-molecular-weight polyethylene and compressing them with heat and pressure.Translation, the "pores" of the board love wax and if properly maintained create an extremely fast, durable and consistent board.
