Expert Reviews of the CAPiTA Ultrafear Camber Snowboard

 This board is a jibber's delight. I had so much fun on this board during testing, ripping the park and doing flat moves. Presses, butters, spins, rails, and jumps, this board felt amazing. It had a lot of flex, making park riding easy and fun. I really liked the playful feeling of this board, and it never felt too soft while riding. I still bombed hills and ripped some leftover powder with no problems. While this board is geared towards the park and side hits, it still handled all over the mountain with no problems. I never felt like the board was not going to work for the terrain I was riding. With a camber-dominant profile, the board held an edge really well, had loads of pop, and really felt versatile all over the mountain. This is a really solid park all-mountain board.

Review Ratings

Turn Ease

4/5
 gave 4 of 5 stars. Easy to ride. With the softer to mid-flex profile, camber section throughout the board and strong edge hold, the board does just fine with turning. It does not take a lot to get the board to make a smooth turn, and due to the camber profile, the board gets an edge-to-edge super easily with minimal effort.

Playfulness

5/5
 gave 5 of 5 stars. This board is a jib stick. It's super playful and has a camber-style profile with plenty of pop and power. The board is easy to press, throw around, and get in the air, and still could take on the whole mountain. Minimal effort was needed to get this board moving, and it really made for super fun days in the park.

Durability

4/5
 gave 4 of 5 stars. This board is a CAPiTA board, so it's already known to have a strong, lasting construction that can take a beating. The true camber profile really held up across all terrains and gave me no problems. I was bashing into park features, ripping through some bare trails in the trees, and pushing the limits of this board with no problems.

High Speed Stability

4/5
 gave 4 of 5 stars. Although this board is on the softer side and has a more playful feel, it still holds up at high speeds with no problems. The true camber profile of the board holds an edge really well. It gave me a very stable feel while not feeling out of control.

Carving

4/5
 gave 4 of 5 stars. With a softer flexing feel, this board is still easily carved. With the true camber profile, it just wanted to grip on all terrains and snow types. Slush, soft pack, hardpack, and ice, this board was the same. Camber profiles always hold the best no matter the board, so this board held up just fine with leaning over carves.

Versatility

4/5
 gave 4 of 5 stars. While this is a more park-centered board, I still took this all over the mountain. Park to powder, I saw no problems. I like the feel of a softer board and had a lot of fun riding it. I was in the trees making quick turns, ripping straight-down runs at full speed, and spending a lot of time in the park. The board was always there when I needed it.

Flotation

4/5
 gave 4 of 5 stars. With this board being a true camber-style profile, I had loads of power underfoot for deeper snow. I slid my bindings back a touch on the board to give me more nose than tail and saw no problems riding powder. The board floated just fine, and I kept my weight in the back seat of the board no matter how deep the snow was.
