Capita Super Defenders Of Awesome 2022
The Capita Super DOA 2022 (Defenders of Awesome ) snowboard is a new beast for a new breed of rider, one that transcends the confines of the mediocre and seeks out a level of performance that will blow everything else away with the power and grace of a stealth bomber. Capita have pushed the envelope and taken the level of tech and performance to new heights, taking the world renowned, award winning Defenders of Awesome snowboard and supercharging it with space age technology and a tough black and white graphic that lets the riding do the talking, while still being something you'll want to hang on your wall once the season is over. Featuring a unique 3D core that reduces weight and directs power where you want it, a HyperDrive base that enhances durability while being faster than anything else you've ever ridden, and a factory-direct pro tune that kicks the engines into overdrive, the Super DOA is one of the most decorated snowboards of all time, locked and loaded with some of the highest end technical attributes available.
Board Type: Resort and Park
Camber Type: Resort V1 Profile
Positive Camber through the middle of the board with a small section of Flat from the 5cm past the inserts to the contact points, and small rocker sections in the tip and tail for a catch free ride. This board rides with the pop and great carving skills of a camber board, but you won't dig your nose and tail contact points in quite as hard which means less unexpected bails after landing your tricks.
Flex: 6/10 (Mid)
Great medium flex that can hit big jumps, press rails, and ride all over the mountain.
Shape: True Twin
Constructed the same from nose to tail, this board will ride switch and regular equally well for controlled jumps, landings, turns, and spins.
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.
Core: FSC Certified 3D Thermopolymer Hover Core
This extremely lightweight, versatile core has been specially created for the Super DOA to elevate performance to dizzying new heights. This industry-first core combines 50mm super carbon, three dimensional coring, post-consumer recycled Polyethylene Terephthalate, recycled thermopolymer inlaid channels, and reforestation certified wood blanks to form an advanced hybrid core. Low-density Paulownia strips are combined with 7mm Poplar beams and then CNC milled for dynamic energy distribution. This core is incredibly lightweight, durable, and responsive.
Fortress Kevlar Bound Sidewalls - Kevlar is laid up above the sidewalls for extra control and power in your turns.
Super Carbon - 2 x 50mm super wide carbon strips are laid along the length of the board into the tip and tail. This extra wide carbon adds twice the power and response of alternative carbon additives.
HolySheet Tri/Tri Fibreglass + Magic Bean Resin - Triax/Triax 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.
Moonshot Pro-Tune - Capita have taken it a step further and given this base a stone grind structure which helps it glide over snow with minimal resistance.
