Defenders Of Awesome Snowboard 2014

Back again, with more sizes and an upgraded construction from its Transworld Top Ten Good Wood winning rookie season, the CAPiTA Defenders Of Awesome Snowboard is better than ever. With a new wax infused rotation sintered base this board is faster than ever and holds its wax like a champ. Get all the pop and response you could ever want with its aggressive hybrid camber rocker mold; strong through your turns and even stronger when you need that extra ounce of pop to jib off the top branch of an evergreen tree. Finally, the real true twin hybrid freestyle destroyer. Hot babes not included.

Product Details

Rocker Type

Hybrid FKHybrid Flat Kick technology steals the benefits of both traditional camber and rocker to create one banging board. You'll find that the flat base has the pop, responsiveness and stability of camber while adding the predictability and smooth turning from rocker.

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

Flex 5.55.5, perfect for all-mountain riding.

Shape

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

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

RFC Sustainable CoreEco-friendly core construction. RFC cores are made with a single species Poplar grain creating a smooth and consistent ride. Extending the entirety of the board, the wood has no knots or joints to ensure you have a responsive ride with a uniform flex pattern.

Laminates

Special Blend Eco TechAn Eco Friendly wet lay-up process that uses a polyurethane based resin component requiring lower consumption of energy and yielding higher technical properties. This adhesion process improves the factory's working environment, as it does not contain some of the same harsh chemical characteristics used in resins at other factories. This configuration uses an optimum blend of biaxial glass laminated in conjunction with structural additives to customize performance objectives.

2 Carbon fiber beams run through the core of this board to increase integrity and equal flex patterns.

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.
