With legendary status as an all-terrain slayer, The CAPiTA Black Snowboard of Death is constantly evolving. In fact, the only element that has remained the same over the last seventeen years is the name itself. For 2017, the BSOD has been completely redesigned from the ground up and returns to its anytime, any place, any condition, all mountain design mantra that made it famous in the first place. With a more balanced presentation of a directional shape, the custom-designed rockered nose, along with positive camber through the midsection, allows for incredible control – making you a better snowboarder in variable terrain and changing conditions. The all-new 2017 model features a stronger flex pattern created by an FSC® Certified Hover Core™, X-ARCS™ Engineered Carbon, and a high-tech glass and resin combination. Combine those attributes with a custom carbon formulated Hyperdrive™ NC12 base, and The Black Snowboard of Death stands as one of the most advanced snowboards available.
You will increase your performance on the whole mountain and enjoy powder days with that little extra under your feet to call it a perfect day. An all mountain snowboard with strong powder ambitions.
A progressive sidecut consists of two or more radii blended 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. With the directional shape, your center of gravity is a bit further back on the board, so you can lay back and enjoy the powder.
The Mountain profile design features the same mid-body camber and flat tail used on the Hybrid FK boards and adds the reverse cambered nose of the Freeride FK. This profile allows for tons of pop and stability on hard pack while increasing float and landing power, improving the rider’s performance in deep snow.
The Black Snowboard of Death has a medium-hard flex for increased stability and control during high speed runs through the steep or on icy slopes.
Engineered specifically for Capita's flagship model, this new core is a shining example of Space Age technological supremacy. Designed using high yield materials, the FSC® Certified HOVER CORE™ is so light it essentially floats across the snow. Thin cut low-density Paulownia strips are combined with 7 mm Poplar beams to create a unique ply configuration. The result is an energetic core that is incredibly light and durable with excellent dampening properties. A thin layer of the URETHANE Topsheet Anchor -Technology placed between more rigid materials allow the board to flex without the risk of failure during impact. The X-ARCS™ ENGINEERED CARBON technology is constructed utilizing an all new computer engineered carbon shaping process. After extensive lab work analyzing how a particular shape reacts to the dynamics of riding, each piece of pre-shaped and pre-laminated CARBON FIBER is made to exact standards that enhance the positive features of a particular board. Triax/Biax Holysheet™ has higher glass to weight ratio than traditional fiberglass, for a more powerful and dynamic ride. When impregnated with a high-performance plant based Magic Bean™ resin, you get a high performing board tailored to meet your style of riding. Custom formulated and exclusive to The Mothership, engineers have worked tirelessly with the world's leading polyethylene running base supplier to create Hyperdrive™ NC12. With exceptional anti-friction properties due to high molecular mass and specialized processing aids, this sintered material has a CUSTOM CARBON component and is beyond fast.
No only do Capita produce some of the best snowboards on the market, but they do so whilst keeping their impact on the planet as low as possible. Their hydro powered production facility, known as The Mothership, lets out zero (that's right ZERO) harmful emission setting a new standard for environmentally friendly boards. Their goal is to keep the spirit and joy of snowboarding alive for generations to come. We hope to see more companies follow in their footsteps.
