The Black Snowboard Of Death Snowboard 2014

Back again, the CAPiTA The Black Snowboard of Death is ready to be your one-quiver all-mountain complete destruction snowboard of total awesomeness. Stacked with loads of different technology such as an aggressive Hybrid Reverse Camber and the revolutionary Flat Kick Technology make this snowboard the ultimate all-mountain tool. A medium flex range gives this board the playfulness you need for epic days in deep snow or those dreaded days on the groomers. Additional features include a durable and ultra-dampening Hover Core™ that allows you to have maximum powder floating ability for long days of snowboarding fun. Bring harsh, righteously-justified death to all your mountainside enemies with a board that knows no defeat.

Product Details

Rocker Type

Mountain FKThe all-new Mountain FK design features the same mid body camber and flat tail used in Hybrid FK boards and adds in the reverse cambered nose of the Freeride FK. This allows for tons of pop and stability on the hard pack while increasing float and landing power, improving the rider's performance in deep snow.

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 FlexOn a scale from 1 to 10, this board is a 6, making it perfect for when you need something stable in the rough and something playful in the park.

Shape

Tapered Tail5 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

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.

Setback 0.5"

Core

Hover Core™Designed using some of the strongest materials available, the HOVER Core™ is so light it essentially floats across the snow.Thin cut FSC certified wood core strips are combined with a Flax fiber composite webbing to create a unique ply configuration. The result is an energetic core that is extremely light and strong with excellent dampening properties.

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

Full ABS sidewalls with silk-screened graphics.

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.

Additional Features

Pre-cured Carbon BoostersThese 30 mm carbon stringers are strategically pre-cured into an arched shape that counters the board's comber profile. This cross-configuration multiples the energy when the board is flexed and creates a board with twice the ollie power and response than a board with standard carbon additives.
