2024 Capita The Black Snowboard of Death 

The advanced all-mountain technician.

With legendary status as an all-terrain slayer and too many accolades to name, The Black Snowboard of Death has been continually morphed and modified in pursuit of perfection. The only element that has remained the same over the years is the name itself. This iconic CAPiTA series is packed with technology integrating post-consumer recycled plastics into an extraordinarily lightweight and powerful core alongside a Carbon Fleece Power Shield™ and Amplitex™ V-Tech Amplifiers. The contemporary Black Snowboard of Death features a slightly wider frame with tighter sidecut arcs and Death Grip™, a reverse sidecut arc in the midsection that enables the shape to whip into quick turns. With a well-balanced directional shape and high-powered construction, this custom-designed rocket ship allows for incredible control, making you a better snowboarder in variable terrain and changing conditions.

Camber Profile
  • Alpine V1 Profile  The ALPINE V1 Profile design features mid-body camber with a flat tail and a reverse cambered nose. This allows for tons of pop and stability on hard pack while increasing float and landing power, improving the rider’s performance in deep snow. The camber runs longer in the tail—providing extra power for the ascent or for larger riders drawn to a dedicated wide series.
Flex
  • Directional Flex
  • Flex Rating  6.5/10 (1=Soft,10=Stiff)
Shape
  • New Age Directional  NEW AGE DIRECTIONAL sidecuts are progressive sidecuts, which also incorporate a reverse sidecut arc in the midsection of the board. Due to a reduced effective edge as a result of hybrid camber shapes, this reverse camber arc provides a point of contact to retain control throughout the turn and is affectionately referred to as DEATH GRIP™.
Core
  • Reinforced with Twin Forged Carbon Rods
  • Thermopolymer Hover Core™  Enhanced with bonded post-consumer recycled Thermopolymer channels into ultra-lightweight select grain wood core strips, the THERMOPOLYMER HOVER Core™ is extremely light and strong with excellent dampening properties.

Laminates
  • Carbon Fleece Power Shield™  With two Carbon Fleece power pads underfoot, maximum thrusting power is achieved for ollies and stability under varied-terrain while torsional forgiveness allows for ease of command in battle.
  • Amplitech™ V-Tech Amplifier  Amplitex™ is a next-generation natural flax fiber woven with carbon strands that is featured in high-end snowboard constructions. This fusion tape brings the best of two worlds: the reactive energy of carbon and the lightweight and dampening aspects of flax. The two fibers are highly compatible since they have similar properties regarding thermal expansion and failure strain, creating a uniformly flexing reinforcement that's light, snappy and durable all in one.
  • Triax/Triax Holysheet™  The HOLYSHEET™ fiberglass configuration features fiber weaves with a high tensile strength and low modulus of elasticity. With a higher roving count in the same weight of glass, you can have a stronger and more responsive board without adding extra weight. Triaxial fiberglass is placed on both the top and bottom of the core providing maximum strength, durability and performance.
  • Magic Bean Resin  Developed over a three-year span, this advanced resin system has a bio-content of 60% renewable, agricultural raw material. It is plant based that does not compete with primary food sources and is produced with no waste or greenhouse emissions. In production, it has a low-temperature requirement with a high yield output.
  • Inlaid Alloy Skid Plates  Reinforced with an ultralight skid plate, refined and reshaped to shave weight.
Sidewalls
  • Full ABS1000 Sidewalls
Base
  • Hyperdrive Adv Base - This custom formulated base uses exceptional anti-friction properties due to high molecular mass and specialised processing aids to make a sintered material that is beyond fast and is one of the fastest, meanest and best bases available.
  • Moonshot Omni-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 and is optimized for regular and switch riding.
Edges
  • 360 Degree HRC48 Steel Edges
Topsheet
  • Skinless™ Core Ash Woodgrain Topsheet  Specially treated pure wood veneer topsheet with a unique tactile feel that is 220gm lighter than the standard process.
Graphics
  • Multitech™ Level 3 DeepSpace™ Silkscreen  The 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.
Binding Compatibility
  • Stainless Steel 2 x 4 Inserts
