Capita Defenders of Awesome DOA Snowboard has won every Good Wood Award since its existence for its eco friendly design and badass ride-ability since it’s release and we can see why. Straight from the Mothership Factory, it’s unique base profile features a camber profile between the feet while flat under foot and Flat Kick rocker tips to keep that nose out the pow! What does that mean in riding terms? Well it bites well into beautifully in to turns at speed and holds a solid edge, but also offers some real nice float in the pow pow with the FK rocker’d tech. With a medium flex this board is your all mountain destroyer, a true weapon of gnarly having made it now four consecutive years without a disappointed shredder insight!
The DOA comes with all the epic features you 'd expect in a Capita board as well as eco friendly construction to accompany it. New for 2018 Capita have developed a Special Blend fiberglass using Magic Bean resin to increase the boards strength durability. Other epic features include an all new Superdrive sintered base with high abrasion resistance and an unbelievably smooth glide. New ABS100 sidewalls are reinforced using Fortress Kevlar bound side walls for extra durability when things get real gnarly on the mountain. Featuring a DS RFC sustainable dual core which has been slightly stiffened using 2 x 30mm carbon beams running parallel through the centre of the board. These beams add a whole new level of snap and response whilst dishing out some rather serious pop!
Although physically the graphic shouldn’t make a difference, but lets face it, an awesome board with an awesome graphic is gonna make anyone shred that little bit harder eh? So if you are looking for a freestyle all mountain board that keeps the juices flowing and not to mention eco friendly. That all mountain madman and destroyer. Then the Capita Defenders of Awesome is exactly what you need. Period...
