Quick overview

One of the most popular women’s snowboards in the industry, the do-anything, go-anywhere Birds of a Feather is here to change your riding forever. This hybrid-camber, all-terrain destroyer has inspired countless knock-offs chasing its success. Such emulation comes with the territory given that the Birds of a Feather has won every major design award in the industry. With eleven sizes to choose from, the Birds of a Feather is suitable for every rider out there and ready to take your snowboarding to new heights.

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.

 


CORE

  • Dual Blaster V2 Core
    The dual blaster ashpop core features internal poplar strips fused with a more dense and powerful Paulownia wood through the insert area and along the rails. With a solid and predictable feel underfoot, these cores provide the energy and reliability required from two of Capita's most highly anticipated series of the year.


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.

  • 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.


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 5 DeepSpace + PAM16000 Topsheet w/ Metallic Underlay


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.

  • Sublimation Base + Die-cut base


SIDEWALL & EDGES

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

  • 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.

  • 360 Degree HRC48 Steel Edges

  • Full ABS1000 Sidewalls
