CAPiTA Defenders of Awesome Snowboard 2023

When all's said and done, do you want to be remembered as someone who stood up for all that is righteous and rad, or someone who shrugged their shoulders and settled for "good enough"? If it's the former, then the CAPiTA Defenders of Awesome Snowboard is for you. This is a classic all mountain freestyle deck capable of turning the smallest pee-wee mogul into a sendable kicker. As for cat tracks, side hits, and tree stumps? They don't stand a chance. CAPiTA have opted for incremental change in the lastest model, keeping everything that makes this board special but laying it up with an new P2 Superlight Core that sheds a few grams without affecting performance. The result is a D.O.A. that's lighter, more nimble, and even easier to throw around. Awesome!

Product Details

Rocker Type

Resort V1 ProfileRESORT 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.

Flex

Twin Flex

Flex Rating5.5 (1 Soft - 10 Stiff)

Shape

Twin Shape

Blended Radial SidecutBLENDED 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.

Core

FSC Certified P2 Superlight Core™The P2 SUPERLIGHT CORE™ is an extremely lightweight core engineered to withstand high impact and deliver maximum pop. Comprised of an even mix of Poplar and Paulownia wood, the P2 is FSC® Certified and ready to dominate in any environment.

Laminates

Carbon Fiber BoostersIncreases power and response while remaining ultralight.

Magic Bean ResinThis advanced resin system has a bio-content of 60% renewable, agricultural raw material and is produced with no waste or greenhouse emissions. In production, it has a low-temperature requirement with a high yield output. Poppy, powerful, and extremely durable, MAGIC BEAN™ resin yields much stronger and more rigid qualities allowing a decrease in the wood core thickness. This means you get a lighter board while achieving higher energy return.

Special Blend FiberglassThis configuration uses an optimum blend of 626g/m2 Biaxial fiberglass laminated in conjunction with structural additives to customize performance objectives.

Sidewalls

Fortress™ Kevlar Bound SidewallsWith 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.

Full ABS1000 Sidewalls

Base

Quantum Drive™ BaseThe QUANTUM DRIVE™ running base is formulated with a progressive blend of compressed ultra-high-molecular-weight polyethylene. As an evolution from the already blazing fast ULTRADRIVE™, this running base features higher density for durability and absorbs more wax to wick longer and ride faster. Properly maintained sintered bases are fast, durable, and are the preferred choice of many high-end enthusiasts worldwide.

Edges

360 Degree HRC48 Steel Edges

Topsheet

PAM16000™ Topsheet with Metallic Underlay

PLT™ Topsheet TechnologyPLT™ technology is exclusive to CAPiTA MFG and magically bonds the topsheet to an already pressed snowboard.

Graphics

Multitech™ Level 5 DeepSpace™ SilkscreenThe DEEPSPACE™ Design Theory takes advantage of the thickness of a transparent topsheet. Strategically layering ink on multiple levels from the top and the bottom imbues graphics with a sense of life through depth.
