The 2018 Capita Black Snowboard of Death has achieved legendary status as a high performance all-terrain dominator, but throughout it's seventeen year reign the only thing that has remained constant is the name. For 2018 the Black Snowboard of Death has been completely redesigned to return to its original purpose, being a force to be reckoned with absolutely anywhere. The directional shape has been dialled back to restore balance, combined with a custom designed rocker profile in the nose, and positive camber throughout the guts of the board, you'll be the undisputed captain of this vessel and will feel control like you've never experienced before, in any condition. All new technology is employed throughout the entire board, most notably in the Hyperdrive NC12 base, which is space-age technology designed to push the limits and hit speeds so high you'll feel like you're jumping to hyperspace. With the Black Snowboard of Death under your feet, it'll be smooth sailing no matter how rough the seas get.
Board Type: All Mountain and Powder Performance
Camber Type: Mountain Profile
The Mountain Profile features camber through the body of the board with a flat tail and a rockered nose, allowing float and power in powder, and pop and stability on hard pack.
Flex: 7/10 (1=soft, 10=stiff)
Stiff enough to plow through the powder and hold a strong edge, but soft enough to be forgiving when you need it.
Built specifically for directional all mountain charging, this board has a radial side cut teamed up with a tapered tail. This narrower tail naturally drops down into the powder while the wider nose section floats above the snow line. The result is less fatigue and more fun as the board surfs powder or charges through slush and hard pack.
Core: FSC Certified Hover Core
Only available in the Black Snowboard of Death, this is Capita's version of the most technically advanced core ever. It is designed using the highest end and lightest weight materials for a board that is so light and strong it feels like you are hovering over everything.
Base: NEW Hyperdrive NC12 Base
Exclusively formulated, sintered, ultra-high molecular weight, ultra-high density polyethylene, custom engineered with special additives. The fastest base on snow bar none.
Urethane Topsheet Anchor - Super strong and durable topsheet that helps dampen chatter.
X-Arcs Engineered Carbon - Computer engineered, pre-shaped carbon arcs placed in the tail and doubled up in the nose for precision performance.
Holysheet Fiberglass - Triax and Biax Holysheet fiberglass has a higher glass to weight ratio than regular fiberglass, providing a more powerful ride while staying light, and then coupled with high performance, environmentally responsible, plant based Magic Bean Resin.
Board Lengths: 156cm, 159cm, 162cm
