Resort V1 Profile - Featuring the full benefits of traditional camber, zero camber, and reverse camber. This profile provides the pop and power of camber with easy turn initiation and a catch-free feel.
Blended Radial Sidecut - Blended radial sidecuts feature a single radius arc through the midsection of the board combined with a custom designed blend zone at the contact points. Varying the length of these blend zones and tailoring them specifically for certain aspects of riding greatly improves a board's performance.
FSC Certified P2 Superlight Core™ - The P2 Superlight core was built for a high performance return of energy in a lightweight and versatile core. From razor sharp turns on demand, to huge ollies, this core was engineered with all-terrain technical freestyle riding in mind. Comprised of an even mix of poplar and paulownia, it is strong enough to meet the needs of the Black Death customer while saving considerable weight.
Special Blend Fiberglass - The Special Blend Fiberglass configuration is an optimum blend of triaxial and biaxial glass weaves. The triax is placed on the topside maximizing torsional rigidity. The biaxial glass is situated underneath the core along with carbon enhancements to provide great longitudinal flex.
Carbon Fiber Beams - Carbon fiber beams run from the tip of the nose to the inside of your front inserts, giving the nose more resistance against chunky conditions for better float. We suppose you could pop some fat nollies off your local cornice drop too, go for it.
Quantum Drive™ Base - An evolution of the blazing fast Ultradrive™ base, the Quantum Drive™ features a new blend of UHMW polyethylene that absorbs wax better and naturally wicks water away for a faster ride.
360° Steel Edges - CAPiTA uses a full wrap steel edge that goes all the way around the board to add bomber protection to the tips and tails from impact damage.
Fortress™ Aramid Bound Sidewalls - Heavy duty protection with refined flyweight aramid.
Full ABS Sidewalls - ABS is an opaque thermoplastic polymer that is strong and durable even at low temperatures, making it ideal for snowboarding. It makes your board more stable at speeds and is impact resistant on rails and boxes.
PLT Topsheet Technology - PLT Topsheet Technology adheres to the board without using toxic and heavy lacquer to maintain vibrant and rich graphics on the board.
Magic Bean™ Resin - Poppy, powerful, and extremely durable, Magic Bean™ resin yields much stronger and more rigid qualities allowing CAPiTA to decrease the wood core thickness which means a lighter board with higher energy return.
2 Year Warranty - Covered under manufacturer warranty for 2 years from the time of purchase. Warranty includes structural defects only and DOES NOT cover impact damage, abuse, misuse or normal wear and tear.
