The advanced all-mountain technician.

With legendary status as an all-terrain slayer and too many accolades to name, The Black Snowboard of Death has been continually morphed and modified in pursuit of perfection. The only element that has remained the same over the years is the name itself. This iconic CAPiTA series is packed with technology integrating post-consumer recycled plastics into an extraordinarily lightweight and powerful core alongside a Carbon Fleece Power Shield™ and Amplitex™ V-Tech Amplifiers.

The contemporary Black Snowboard of Death features a slightly wider frame with tighter sidecut arcs and Death Grip™, a reverse sidecut arc in the midsection that enables the shape to whip into quick turns. With a well-balanced directional shape and high-powered construction, this custom-designed rocket ship allows for incredible control—making you a better snowboarder in variable terrain and changing conditions.

I found the Black Snowboard of Death to be my favorite board in the Capita collection. The board is stiffer than other Capita boards yet still has the same poppiness and playfulness found in other boards. This thing goes fast. The board comes with a racebase grind, which sheds water and makes the board charge and gains speed effortlessly. I... Read more

So, I got to try out the new BSD it's really cool. It's perfect for people who love going fast and doing tricks, ideal for freerides. It has a hybrid camber.

Powder Review

Originally posted at capitasnowboarding.com on Mar 1, 2024
So I finally made it out west again after all these years and had the good fortune to try the BSOD 2021 on some powder. Unbelievable. I was skeptical. I mean, I freaking love this board but had no idea it was going to perform so well in powder. It was a fairly mellow back bowl with about 2 feet of fresh powder on a foot of tracked powder. Other boarders and skiers were really having to push to make it through flat glade sections and I was just chilling, floating my way through life. Later in the day it got pretty busy and there were all kinds of conditions. Lots of powder left that most people couldn’t get to because they couldn’t get enough speed. I flat-based the BSOD on absolute garbage snow so I could hit the powder stashes at high speed. No chatter. No leg pain. No worries at all that I’d have to stop and walk my way out. The BSOD is a missile. A cushioned missile who’s sole purpose is to take care of its rider and make sure they have epic days.

Gorgeous board

Posted on Dec 29, 2023
I made an impulsive decision to get a new board this Christmas and I couldn’t be happier with it. The expert I was paired with gave me some great pointers about it and the shipping was very quick and really easy. It arrived in perfect condition and I can’t wait to get it out on the slopes and try it out
