The 2023 Capita Kazu Kokubo Pro is an all mountain board with a heart and soul in the backcountry. Breaking away from the old adage of powder boards being long and wide, the Kazu comes in shorter sizes that keeps it quick, manoeuvrable, and super fun to ride. Perfected over the years by Kazu from countless trips into Japans backcountry, the shape and construction of this board is really something special. The setback, directional shape, and powerful Panda Hover Core will blow your mind as you experience some of the most powerful turns, rock solid stability underfoot, and being in complete control of your snowboard. If you've seen Kazu ride you'll know he has incredible style and a spiritual relationship with snowboarding. Take the Kazu Pro to Japan and you'll feel at one with the board, the mountain, and the heart and soul of snowboarding.
Rider Type: All Mountain and Powder
Camber Type: Alpine V2 Profile
The Alpine V2 Profile features lowered camber through the board with a reverse camber nose, which maintains the aggressive response and power of camber while providing maximum float and stability in powder. The camber runs deep into the tail on the Kazu which keeps the back of the board stable and powerful in all conditions.
Flex: 6.5/10 (Mid)
Stiff enough to plow through the powder and hold a strong edge, but soft enough to be forgiving when you need it.
This board is engineered for deep powder and all mountain versatility, featuring a radial sidecut complemented by a tapered tail. This narrower tail section naturally sinks in powder while the wide nose floats above the surface, giving you smooth flowing turns and an easy, surfy, floaty ride in powder.
This board features a radial sidecut paired with a tapered tail. This narrower tail section sinks in powder while the wide nose floats above the snow, resulting in less work, more fun, and smooth arcing turns.
Core: Panda Hover Core
The Panda Hover Core was engineered with a focus on all-terrain technical freestyle riding. Featuring the same lightweight, poppy, smooth Poplar and Paulowia wood as Capita's Superlight P2 Core enhanced with inlaid bamboo power rods, this high-density core is strong enough to handle any kind of terrain while staying super light.
Amplitex V-Tech Amplifier - Amplitex is a natural Flax fibre woven with carbon strands, giving you the reactive energy of carbon with the lightweight dampening properties of Flax. These two fibres are placed in 4 x 25mm strips, working in unison to reinforce the board while flexing uniformly and remaining light, durable, and extra snappy.
HolySheet Fibreglass + Magic Bean Resin - HolySheet glass has a higher glass to weight ratio than normal fibreglass, giving you more stiffness with lower weight than a traditional layup. This is impregnated with a high performance, environmentally responsible, plant based resin that provides a powerful and dynamic ride that's better for the planet.
Base: Hyperdrive Base
This exclusively formulated sintered base is designed for the most depraved speed junkies, bar none. Ultra high molecular weight, ultra high density polyethylene, custom engineered with super secret special additives. That's a one way ticket to a face meltingly fast ride.
Skinless Core Ash Woodgrain Topsheet - This board has a specially treated pure wood veneer topsheet with a unique tactile feel that is 220gm light than a standard topsheet.
Moonshot Pro-Tune - Aftermarket high-performance race-base structure that wicks water from your base in 45 degree angles making the board the fastest while ridden in a single direction.
