The CAPiTA The Black Snowboard of Death Snowboard is a long standing champion among seasoned snowboarders. Known as the all-terrain slayer, this board boasts an array of high tech features. An ALPINE V1 camber profile with reverse nose camber, mid-body camber, and flat tail design will give you the pop you crave with a healthy dose of float, landing power and hard pack stability. Making its appearance this year, a new carbon weave construction improves tip to tail snap and power but softens the overall board flex for a more playful feel. Finished off with a Hyperdrive™ NC12 Base and new Moonshot Pro-Tune™ structure, the CAPiTA The Black Snowboard of Death Snowboard was designed for only for the most depraved all-mountain speed junkies.

Rocker Type

Alpine V1 Profile – The original Mountain Profile design features mid-body camber with a flat tail and a reverse cambered nose. This allows for tons of pop and stability on hard pack while increasing float and landing power, improving the rider's performance in deep snow.

Flex

6.5 – (1 Soft - 10 Stiff)

Shape

Progressive Sidecut – A progressive sidecut consists of two or more radii blended together to accommodate the three stages of a turn. They provide easy turn initiation while offering greater control throughout the turn and maximum power when exiting.

Core

FSC® Certified Hover Core™ – An energetic core that is extremely light and strong with excellent dampening properties.

Laminates

Carbon Kevlar Battering Ram™ + Carbon Fleece Power Shield™ – Mixed material technical weave yields an optimal blend for softening flex while retaining longitudinal power.

Holysheet™ Fiberglass with Magic Bean Resin – Triax/ Biax Holysheet™ has higher glass to weight ratio than normal fiberglass for a more powerful and dynamic ride when impregnated with the new high performance plant based Magic Bean™ Resin.

Sidewalls

Full ABS1000 Sidewalls

Base

HyperDrive™ NC12 Base – Exclusively formulated, sintered, ultra-high molecular weight, ultra-high density polyethylene, custom engineered with special additives. Rated for the most depraved speed junkies only.

Moonshot Pro-Tune™ – Aftermarket performance stone grind structure straight from The Mothership.

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

Titanal Base Inlay – Titanal is a high strength hardened aluminum wrought alloy with excellent compression strength to weight ratios. A perfect top core structural reinforcement, these 20mm Titanal struts resist longitudinal compression.

Edges

360 Degree HRC48 Steel Edges

Topsheet

Multitech™ Level 5 DeepSpace™ Metallic Silkscreen + PAM16000™ Topsheet with Metallic Underlay – Strategically layering ink on multiple levels from the top and the bottom, CAPiTA imbues their graphics with a sense of life through depth.

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.
