Product Details

Rocker Type

Hybrid Camber ProfileThis rocker type takes 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

Flex Rating5.5 (1 Soft - 10 Stiff)

Shape

Blended RadialSidecut that features 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.

Flat Kick TechnologyWith CAPiTA's Flat Kick design technology, they've tightened the tip profile radius that blends the shoulders of the board into the tip and tail height on reverse camber boards. The tight tip radius in conjunction with tuned blend zones allows you to have a forgiving and easy to ride reverse camber board that is still responsive and quick during edge-to-edge transitions. This also creates a flat tip and tail which increases jibbing stability and also helps the board plane on top of powder creating float and control.

Core

FSC® Certified Dual Core™Poppy lightweight Poplar core combined with Beech for increased power and durability.

Laminates

Carbon Fiber BeamsIncreases power and response while remaining ultralight.

Special Blend Fiberglass + Magic Bean™ ResinCustom weighted Biaxial top / Biaxial bottom = increased strength and durability. Impregnated with reformulated, high-performance plant based Magic Bean™ Resin.

Sidewalls

Fortress™ Kevlar Bound SidewallsHeavy duty protection with refined flyweight Kevlar®.

Base

Superdrive™ BaseThe new standard in sintered base material this UHMWPE is precision forged for high abrasion resistance and a super smooth glide.

Multitech™ Sublimation + Die-cut BaseSublimation is an exact science for an inexact process. In sublimation ink is pushed through a substrate into base material using pressure and heat.

Edges

360 Degree HRC48 Steel Edges

Topsheet

Multitech™ Level 6 DeepSpace™ SilkscreenStrategically layering ink on multiple levels from the top and the bottom, CAPiTA imbues their graphics with a sense of life through depth.

PAM16000™ TopsheetSpec'd out to the tits with a mind-boggling sixteen thousand ink jet nozzles, PAM16000™ makes our knees weak and our hearts palpitate. She can now spit out solventless, water-based UV inks at twice the speed with the same deadly accuracy and quality.

PLT Topsheet Technology™PLT™ technology is exclusive to CAPiTA MFG and magically bonds the topsheet to an already pressed snowboard. This is magical because the rest of the world mashes their topsheet on with glue, heat and pressure during the pressing stage. Doing so causes the fiberglass structure underneath to show through the topsheet. And because nobody wants to spend their hard earned cash on a bumpy snowboard, many companies slather their tops with a thick, toxic lacquer to smooth things out. Not only is that ish heavy and can potentially develop unsightly hairline cracks, it's also really unhealthy for the working environment. The PLT™ machine produces a featherlight, smooth, high-gloss finish, without all that poisonous deadweight.

Additional Features

Made at the Mothership (100% Hydro Powered Facility)The NH3 natural gas heating system has an ODP (Ozone Depletion Potential) and GWP (Global Warming Potential) of 0, with a COP (coefficient of performance) of 5. This means that for every 1 unit of energy consumed by the system, 5 units of energy for heating and cooling is achieved. It's like making the effort to spin a 360, but landing a silky smooth 1800 instead. The Mothership is also designed to maximize the use of natural light during the day by having ample skylights and strategically placed interior cutaways throughout the entire facility -- while energy efficient LED lighting acts as supplementary illumination where necessary.
