Product details

The CaPiTA Defenders of Awesome Snowboard is great for freestyle riders looking for a lighter, more nimble, and even easier board to throw around. The board's design combines all the pop and response of a cambered board with all the predictability and easy turn initiation of zero camber or reverse camber shapes. CaPiTa infuses internal poplar strips with super light, high-strength paulownia wood, which results in a stable and poppy ride.

Key Features:

  • Blended Radial Sidecut – The radial sidecut and custom-designed blend zone create a very stable platform for more aggressive riders.
  • Dual Blaster V2 Core – The core design provides the energy and reliability required for freestyle riding.
  • Kevlar Bound Sidewalls – This lightweight technology binds the sidewall and core material together for prolonged durability.

CAPiTA has done an incredible job with the evolution of this board. Its always been a show stopper but they have opted for incremental changes over the years, keeping everything that makes this board amazing and then boosting the metrics. This new model boasts a Dual Blaster V2 Core that sheds a few grams resulting in a lighter, more nimble, and easier to maneuver board.

A legendary all-mountain twin-shaped freestyle deck that has brought the stoke out of every rider who has touched this board. Mid-flexing (5/10), with their Blaster Dual-core features poplar strips and paulownia core that provides tons of pop, stability, and playfulness. The profile is a slight positive camber to flat, to slight rocker to the tip and tail, great for jibbing, pressing, precise edge hold, quick turn initiation and stability off of landings. This board will shine in the park, but is an all resort destroyer.

A go-to for crushing park laps and bombing groomers. It's a blast everywhere. I've had mine for 3 seasons and it's amazing anywhere inbounds. Even on pow days if you set back your stance, it's awesome!
