Product Details

Rocker Type

Resort V1 ProfileRESORT V1 Profile boards take full advantage of the benefits of traditional camber, zero camber, and reverse camber. This next generation design allows you to get the pop and response of a cambered board with all the predictability and easy turn initiation of zero camber or reverse camber shapes.

Flex

Twin Flex

Flex Rating5.5 (1 Soft - 10 Stiff)

Shape

Twin Shape

Blended Radial SidecutBLENDED RADIAL sidecuts feature a single radius arc through the midsection of the board combined with a custom designed blend zone at the contact points. Varying the length of these blend zones and tailoring them specifically for certain aspects of riding greatly improves a board’s performance.

Core

Dual Blaster Ashpop Core™The DUAL BLASTER ASHPOP CORE™ features internal Poplar strips fused with a more dense and powerful Ash wood through the insert area and along the rails. With a stable and predictable feel underfoot, these cores provide the energy and reliability required from CAPiTA's most in-demand and best-selling series of the year.

Laminates

Carbon Fiber BoostersIncreases power and response while remaining ultralight.

Magic Bean ResinDeveloped over a three-year span, this advanced resin system has a bio-content of 60% renewable, agricultural raw material. It is plant based that does not compete with primary food sources and is produced with no waste or greenhouse emissions. In production, it has a low-temperature requirement with a high yield output. This resin system is poppy, powerful, and extremely durable. MAGIC BEAN™ resin yields much stronger and more rigid qualities allowing a decrease in the wood core thickness. The focus is to save wood core weight by increasing resin performance. This means you get a lighter board while achieving higher energy return.

Special Blend FiberglassThis configuration uses an optimum blend of 626g/m2 Biaxial fiberglass laminated in conjunction with structural additives to customize performance objectives.

Sidewalls

Fortress™ Kevlar Bound SidewallsWith seven Transworld Good Wood Awards in six years for the D.O.A. series, it’s clear that the performance and value of these boards are unmatched. FORTRESS™ KEVLAR BOUND SIDEWALLS are bonded by a Kevlar “S” wrap from the top of the sidewall to the underside of the core. This lightweight technology binds the sidewall and core material together like no other.

Full ABS1000 Sidewalls

Base

Quantum Drive™ BaseThe QUANTUM DRIVE™ running base is formulated with a progressive blend of compressed ultra-high-molecular-weight polyethylene. As an evolution from the already blazing fast ULTRADRIVE™, this running base features higher density for durability and absorbs more wax to wick longer and ride faster. Properly maintained sintered bases are fast, durable, and are the preferred choice of many high-end enthusiasts worldwide.

Edges

360 Degree HRC48 Steel Edges

Topsheet

PAM16000™ Topsheet with Metallic Underlay

PLT™ Topsheet TechnologyPLT™ technology is exclusive to CAPiTA MFG and magically bonds the topsheet to an already pressed snowboard.

Graphics

Multitech™ Level 4 DeepSpace™ SilkscreenThe DEEPSPACE™ Design Theory takes advantage of the thickness of a transparent topsheet. Strategically layering ink on multiple levels from the top and the bottom imbues graphics with a sense of life through depth.
