his awesomest Defender of Awesome takes the layup of one the best all-mountain boards in the game, and stuffs it chock full of sci-fi technology to form the ultimate resort-conquering machine. New for this year, the forward thinking and slightly deranged folks at Capita have incorporated recycled plastics in between the wood strips of their Hover Core and added extra wide strips of carbon fiber on top to cut weight, add power, and add even more reactivity, all while reducing their carbon footprint. The new and improved Capita Super DOA Snowboard is fast and fun, playful and precise.
Resort V1 Profile – RESORT V1 Profile boards take full advantage of the benefits of traditional camber, zero camber, and reverse camber. This next generation design allows you to get the pop and response of a cambered board with all the predictability and easy turn initiation of zero camber or reverse camber shapes.
Twin Flex/ Flex Rating – 6 (1 Soft - 10 Stiff)
Twin Shape/ 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 3D Thermopolymer Hover Core™ – Combined with 50mm Super Carbon and three-dimensional coring, this industry-first FSC® Certified 3D Thermopolymer HOVER CORE™ integrates post-consumer recycled Polyethylene Terephthalate into reforestation certified wood planks to form an advanced hybrid core. Thin cut low-density Paulownia strips are combined with 7 mm Poplar beams to create a unique ply configuration, which is CNC milled for dynamic energy distribution. The result is an extraordinarily lightweight core that channels directional energy while providing reduced weight, increased impact thresholds, and enhanced reaction performance alongside a commitment to evolve responsible manufacturing techniques.
Super Carbon – Super wide carbon tape for twice the power and response of previous carbon additives.
Fortress™ Kevlar Bound Sidewalls – With seven Transworld Good Wood Awards in six years for the D.O.A. series, it’s clear that the performance and value of these boards are unmatched. FORTRESS™ KEVLAR BOUND SIDEWALLS are bonded by a Kevlar “S” wrap from the top of the sidewall to the underside of the core. This lightweight technology binds the sidewall and core material together like no other.
Hyperdrive™ Base – Exclusively formulated, sintered, ultra-high molecular weight, ultra-high density polyethylene, custom engineered with special additives. Rated for the most depraved speed junkies only.
