Product details

The CAPiTA Defenders of Awesome Snowboard is a  highly decorated, do-it-all resort board that is perfect for the rider who wants a board that excels in the park but isn't afraid of any terrain. This camber-shaped board is primarily a freestyle deck but it provides the rider with an amount of stability that allows the rider to take on anything at the resorts. The design also includes an early rise in the tip and tail which lets the board perform better in fresh than almost every other park-oriented deck. This is for the rider who wants to push their limits inside and outside the park and experience the performance of one of the best boards on the market all at a great price point.

Key Features:

  • Superlight Core – The CAPiTA P2 core is made with a combination of materials that allow the board to be lightweight while also containing extreme amounts of pop.
  • Carbon Fiber Boosters – This board has two carbon fiber strips running through the core which increase the responsiveness of the deck and contribute to its extraordinary power.
  • Aramid Bound Sidewalls – These heavy-duty sidewalls provide durability and dampen chatter to create a more stable ride.

Who is this product good for?
The CAPiTA DOA is a freestyle riders dream snowboard built with a true twin shape and aggressive camber underfoot. The Resort V1 profile provides positive camber between the feet to provide easy turn initiation but incredible pop when launching off jumps. The radial sidecut and steel edges enhance the contact points to provide greater edge hold in icy conditions, this is ideal for park riders who need to stop on a dime after landing.

Summary: This is an iconic freestyle board that turns the whole mountain into a party! It's built for the intermediate-advanced rider who wants to get the most out of their riding and really progress as much as possible. This is one of the most popular boards on the market right now!

Top Features:

  1. It's got a rocker-camber-rocker profile which is the ideal setup for versatility because the rocker offers a predictable ride, good float in deep snow, and easy turns. While the camber is going to give you stability, good edge hold and a ton of pop!

  2. Capita added a bunch of new tech to this board this year to make it wayyy lighter than most boards on the market. These means it's nimble and turns wicked easy! Super fun to throw around in the park, in the trees, or just dodging little kids!

Why I personally love it: This board is so jam packed with new features and tech it honestly resembles the type of boards you'd see going for $600-$700. In other words, a crazy good value deal!!
