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.
Salomon Huck Knife 2022
The Salomon Huck Knife 2022 has well and truley established itself as one of the worlds best freestyle snowboards, it carry's a full trophy case and a trail of destruction in its wake. Transworld Good Wood award winner, overall winner of the Snowboard Magazine Black Board Experiment, and the freestyle board of choice for many Salomon riders, the Huck Knife has a perfect mix of precision, pop, and response from its Quad Camber profile, along with a mid flex to keep it playful and pressy.

Capita The Outsiders 2022
The Capita Outsiders 2022 snowboard is a high performance board designed to keep up with modern park riders, the guys that are hitting 100ft jumps for fun, flipping off rails, and throwing double corks off knuckles. The speed and stability required for these tricks is off the charts, which is why you'll see heavy duty park riders riding the Outsiders, featuring predominantly positive camber profiles, mid-stiff flex ratings, lightweight cores, and power increasing, shock absorbing tech. This Board rips outside of the park, with positive camber providing super strong edge hold, with added flat camber at the contact points to hard carves without the catch. The 2020 the Outsiders has been upgraded with Technora + Flax fibre boosters, increasing the power and response of the board while keeping the weight low for easy aerial manoeuvres, as well as a faster base to have you flying higher. Pop, power, and lightweight performance, this is the board you need if you're going big in the park.

Arbor Shiloh 2022
The Arbor Shiloh snowboard 2022 is a twin board that is made for experienced freeriders who want a big mountain twin board that is quick edge to edge, and has a snappy and solid feel. Whether you want to ride through the trees, laps through the park, or early morning groomers, the Shiloh is what you need. If you are after a surfy feel, it is also available in a rocker model.
Board Type: All Mountain
Camber Type: The Camber System
Arbor Formula 2022
The Arbor Formula 2022 is the perfect bang-for-your-buck board that gives you premium Arbor quality and sustainability values without sacrificing performance. The Formula has a strong focus on affordability and durability, but put that aside and it's a great softer-flexing all-mountain board that will perform way above its price range. The Camber System provides a stable ride, and the added Grip Tech edge technology means you can keep control even in the worst conditions. The Formula Camber is your missing puzzle piece for affordable progression.
System Camber – If you want a highly responsive ride, crisp on-edge performance, and more pop for carving and ollies - all with smoother camber performance - then System Camber shapes are for you. The camber progressively reduces toward the tip and tail, making the leading edge less aggressive for cleaner on-snow performance.
3° Uprise Fenders – Arbor’s Fenders are lifted side sections at the tip/tail of the board that create smoother performance without shortening the camber section of the board. As a result, you get a clean ride without any loss of the pop that comes from full-length camber.
Grip-Tech – Grip Tech is a combination of three separate sidecut radii in the nose, tail, and centre of the board, effectively giving the board an additional two contact points. This provides extra grip and control in all conditions, and also makes turning smoother, easier, and less catchy, without losing performance.
Highland Core – Arbor's most versatile core, constructed with a 1:2 blend of poplar and paulownia, for super light weight performance, durability, and return.
Biax Glassing – A biax over biax lay–up that’s designed for park and street inspired all-mountain riding. Also creates a good platform for learning.
360° Fully Wrapped Sidewalls – Eliminates the need for tip fill, while effectively tying the whole snowboard together. A technology that delivers incredibly tight tolerances for improved board life and durability.
Recycled ABS – When a plastic alternative is unavailable, as in the case of ABS sidewalls, Arbor does its best to opt for a recycled material to improve the sustainability of their products.
Sintered Base – A higher molecular weight, sintered base that provides added durability and speed.
Recycled Steel Edges – Highly durable, recycled steel edges embody Arbor's key values: quality and sustainability.
Factory Tuned – Arbor detunes the tip and tail contact points on all of their snowboards for a catch-free ride before they leave the factory.
Wend Natural Wax – All Arbor snowboards hit the shop floor ready to ride with Wend Natural Wax.
Bio Resin – Bio-Resin is a replacement for traditional petroleum based resin that doesn't affect performance or usability. The ingredients that go into it are sourced as co-products or waste products of other industrial processes and are manufactured employing green chemistry techniques that reduce the carbon footprint of the material by up to 40% when compared to its petroleum based equivalent.
