The Warpspeed integrates key shaping attributes from two of our award-winning series into a dedicated wide model. Built for the big guy that rides in a big way, these decks have a Progressive Sidecut inspired by the Supernova and the Mountain Camber Profile from The Black Snowboard of Death. The construction DNA is Warpspeed specific – built stronger with a new Urethane Topsheet Anchor, Matrix™ Carbon V-Tech, chatter reducing Forged Carbon tips, and our new custom carbon formulated Hyperdrive™ NC12 base, the result is a powerful board that carves hard, floats in powder, and is ready to manhandle any terrain.
The Warspeed is for big dudes that charge hard and are in need of a wide model! Provided by the clever construction, your powder experience will reach an entirely new level.
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 Warspeed has a medium-hard flex for increased stability and control during high speed runs through the steep or on icy slopes.
The Panda Core™ was built for a high-performance return of energy in a lightweight and versatile core. Comprised of Capita's P2 Superlight™ core and enhanced with inlaid Bamboo Power Rods, this high-density core is strong enough to meet the needs of the all-terrain customer while saving considerable weight. New Forged Carbon in tip and tail, which is lighter and stronger than Titanium, is eliminating chatter through variable terrain.
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.
MATRIX™ CARBON V-TECH -These 30 mm high tensile strength carbon strips are grid-woven into CARBON SUPER BEAMS. As a snowboard flexes, internal additives are stressed. MATRIX™ CARBON has been engineered to withstand maximum pressure and respond with a vengeance. This counteracting displacement of energy creates a board with twice the ollie power and response than a board with conventional carbon additives.
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. Combine those attributes with a custom carbon formulated Hyperdrive™ NC12 base, and the Warspeed stands as one of the most advanced snowboards available.
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 production facility, known as The Mothership, is a 100% hydro powered factory with a natural gas heating system with zero (that's right ZERO) harmful emission. 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.
