Quick overview

The Capita Defenders of Awesome has a big reputation and this board backs it up. This model became their #1 selling snowboard and one of the most sought-after snowboards in the world. The D.O.A. features a hybrid camber design that delivers the pop and response of a cambered board with the predictability of reverse camber. Paulownia striping integrated into a proven Poplar woodcore. With additional carbon stringer and ABS sidewalls and a high-speed base advancing these boards beyond their modest retail price. The D.O.A. stands proud as the ultimate go anywhere, do anything freestyle deck.

Details

PROFILE

  • Resort V1 Profile
    One of the most popular shapes of Capita. The Resort V1 profile uses a traditional camber underfoot and flatbase and rocker in the tip and tail. This results in a design with pop and responsiveness, much like a camber board but with the predictability and easy handling of flatbase/rocker boards.

  • Flat Kick Tech
    With capita’s flat kick design technology, we’ve tightened the tip profile radius that blends the shoulders of the board into the tip and tail height on reverse camber boards. The tight tip radius in conjunction with tuned blend zones allows you to have a forgiving and easy to ride reverse camber board that is still responsive and quick during edge-to-edge transitions. This also creates a flat tip and tail which increases jibbing stability and also helps the board plane on top of powder creating float and control.

 

  • 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

  • P2 Superlight Core
    The P2 Superlight Core is one of the lightest cores that can withstand high impacts and has maximum pop. The pop ensures enough air time in the park and fast manoeuvrability. The core also adds stability, allowing it to perform well in different types of snow. The core is made up of a mix of poplar and Paulownia. Made for diversity on the entire mountain.


REINFORCEMENTS

  • Carbon Fiber Beams
    Known for its rigidity, high tensile strength, low weight, high temperature tolerance, and low thermal expansion, carbon fiber is one of the most popular materials used in today’s high performance applications. We press micro-sewn 20 mm beams into our snowboards, increasing power and response while the boards remain ultralight.

  • Special Blend Fiberglass
    Special blend is an eco-friendly wet lay-up process that uses our evo-resin component requiring lower consumption of energy and yielding higher technical properties. This adhesion process improves the factory’s working environment, as it does not contain some of the same harsh chemical characteristics used in resins at other factories around the world. This configuration uses an optimum blend of biaxialfiberglass laminated in conjunction with structural additives to customize performance objectives.


BASE

  • Quantum Drive Base
    The Quantum Drive running base is formulated with a new blend of compressed ultra-high-molecular-weight polyethylene. As an evolution from the already blazing fast Ultradrive from 2018, this new running base for 2021 and beyond 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.


TOPSHEET

  • PLT Topsheet Technology
    The PLT machine sits in a secret hidden corner of the factory behind two very unassuming, nondescript metal doors. The PLT  is so secretive that with the exception of its inventor, Mr. Michi Kollmann, all visitors to the room must be versed in an ever-changing secret handshake. PLT technology is exclusive to CAPiTA MFG and magically bonds the topsheet to an already pressed snowboard. This is magical because the rest of the world mashes their topsheets on with glue, heat and pressure during the pressing stage. Doing so causes the fiberglass structure underneath to show through the topsheet. And because nobody wants to spend their hard earned cash on a bumpy snowboard, many companies slather their tops with a thick toxic lacquer to smooth things out. Not only is that material HEAVY and can potentially develop unsightly hairline cracks, it’s also really unhealthy for the working environment. The PLT machine produces a featherlight, smooth, high-gloss finish, without all that poisonous deadweight.

  • Multitech Level 4 DeepSpace + PAM16000 Topsheet w/ Metallic Underlay

 


SIDEWALL & EDGES

  • Fortress Kevlar Bound Sidewalls
    Heavy duty protection with refined flyweight kevlar.

  • Full ABS1000 Sidewalls

 

  • 360 Degree HRC48 Steel Edges

 


OTHERS

  • Magic Bean Resin
    Developed over a three-year span, this all new resin system has a bio-content of 60% renewable, agricultural raw materials. 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. This resin system is poppy, powerful, and extremely durable. Magic bean resin yields much stronger and more rigid qualities allowing us to decrease the wood core thickness. Our focus is to save wood core weight by increasing resin performance. This means you get a lighter board while achieving higher energy return.

  • Stainless Steel 4 x 2 Inserts
