The Curated Take

By the Expert Community

I've had this board for a couple weeks now and have taken it out probably 15-20 times so far.

It's incredibly stable at speed, and the base is very fast and durable. I mean DURABLE. I've taken it over trees, rocks and cliffs and the base still looks really good. Somehow no core shots as of yet.

The two aspects of this board that really stand out are how aggressively the death grip bites when you're really leaning it over hard when carving, and the stability that you get when landing off medium to large features. The extra stiffness really lends itself to jumping high and riding fast. The full camber gives you a ton of power and pop off of lips. This board will very easily send you if you load up the camber.

Ideal for
  • Extremely fast base
  • Very good edge control and torsional rigidity.
  • Hard charging and aggressively carving.
Not ideal for
  • The top sheet really dislikes scuffs in the liftline

The Black Snowboard of Death Snowboard is CAPiTA's all mountain/freeride charger. With camber between the feet, it holds and edge and powers through turns. The reverse camber just past the bindings makes for quicker turns in trees and the Wah-Pow flat kick at the nose and tail make for excellent float in powder. The medium-stiff flex profile will ensure a great ride on any terrain.

Key Features:

  • Directional Flex Pattern – A softer nose and a stiffer tail give the rider more power at speed and more float in the powder.
  • Alpine V1 Camber Profile – This is designed for powerful all-mountain riding in all conditions. The mid-body camber provides pop while engaging turns and landing jumps. The flat tail camber helps sink the tail in powder and adds stability at speed, while the reverse camber in the nose makes for enhanced powder float and easy turn initiation.
  • Death Grip Side Cut – A blended side cut profile, with a reverse side cut at specific points on the edge, helps the edge grip the snow deeper on icier conditions.
  • Hyperdrive Base – A proprietary high density, sintered base for durability and speed.
  • Enhanced Fiberglass – Holysheet Tri/Tri Fiberglass + Tri-axial weave fiberglass enhances energy transfer to the edges. Three angles of woven fiberglass offer stiffer edge-to-edge energy transfer for quicker turning and edge control.
  • Eco-friendly Resin – CAPiTA uses their proprietary Magic Bean Resin, an eco-friendly plant-based resin, to make this board lightweight, powerful and friendlier to the planet.

I am truly grateful for the time Daniela spent taking care of my many questions as I decided on equipment for skiing. There are so many measurements to deal with (Daniela mentioned ones I didn’t even know I needed to know) it was frustrating. She held my hand, and I’m confident I have something for my skill level. There are settings I know I will need some pro help on like DIN settings. I’m looking forward to hitting the slopes with my new gear. Thanks Daniela!

Jarom was responsive and understanding. He made sure he understood what I was looking for, and helped explain what he thought would be a good fit. When I approached him with another Ski, he was quick to assure me that it was a good ski, but also why he thought the one he chose would be a better fit. I really couldn’t have asked for a better experience

I was in the market for a new snowboard and bindings for the 2024 season. I have had the same set up for about 10 years now and was ready to invest in a solid set up. I filled out the Curated questionnaire and was lucky to land Dave as my Curated expert. I chatted it up with Dave on what I like to do on the mountains and within 20 min I received his recommended line up of boards and bindings. Dave took the time to provide a detailed description for each board/bindings along with a personalize video as well which was so cool! Literally feel like I’m friends with the guy now, ha! I ended up going with the T. Rice Pro with the Union Falcor bindings. PUMPED for the 2024 season to rip it on my new setup! Dave is the man 🤙🏼

Hayden was super helpful
5 /5
I came onto this website not sure what to expect, and I'm walking away with a new pair of skis and bindings that I am confident will work great for me. Hayden was super knowledgable on the many types of skis and helped me with the many many questions I had for him. He was also super fun and light hearted which made my buying experience that much better. I will definitely be recommending Hayden and this website to others looking to buy skis, and will appreciate all he did for me :)

Vince was all around the best
5 /5
Vince and I went back and forth for over a week finding me the perfect gear. He was dedicated to finding me the best deals for my needs, and he was always great with giving me multiple recommendations. When things I wanted went out of stock, or when my original boots didn't fit, he made sure to find me an equally amazing product. I felt cared for and valued as a shopper, and what is the best in my book, is that it was all so humanized as I NEVER felt like I was being pressured into buying anything, which so many retailers do. This guy knows what he is talking about and will make sure you feel confident in your gear purchases!

This was our first time not going into an in person shop to purchase gear. Jennifer was knowledgeable and gained my trust to purchase online rather than in person. Would highly recommend (and actually already have) to friends because the experience was effortless and seamless. Thanks Jennifer!
