Everything Is Possible

E.I.P. It’s our research and development mantra and the starting point for applied technologies at CAPiTA MFG. To move beyond the status quo means facing adversity and overcoming obstacles. Only in full acceptance of the idea that Everything Is Possible can progression truly take place.

Core Compositions

A snowboard’s core is just that – the core, the heart, the soul, and the foundation for everything else that goes into a board. This essential element determines the overall characteristics of the snowboard, even before one sheet of fiberglass is laid upon it. Every CAPiTA deck starts off with a wood core, tip-to-tail and rail-to-rail, allowing for uniform flex, greater turn-initiation control, and incredibly fast response. Different species of wood, along with engineered core profiles, help give each deck a unique feel and targeted flex. We have engineered a series of core compositions, each with its own distinctive characteristics, to ensure that we have your ideal snowboard.

SURFLITE CORE™

SPRING BREAK POWDER

The SURFLITE CORE™ was designed exclusively for our new Spring Break Powder boards to create a strong, light, and buoyant core that floats to the top of the deepest powder. In surfboard design, a thicker more buoyant board will help the board float much easier than a thin dense one. With this inspiration we have developed and now evolved an industry-first core. As each Spring Break Powder board has a unique shape, each SURFLITE CORE™ features a unique alignment of Blocked Balsa and strategically placed Poplar throughout the board. In a development partnership with Union Binding Company, we have incorporated Forged Carbon Diamond Plates into the insert area of the core, creating the most high-tech and buoyant core of all time.

Hover Core™

The Black Snowboard Of Death

Engineered specifically for our flagship model, this new core is a shining example of our Space Age technical supremacy. Designed using high yield materials, the Hover Core™ is so light it essentially floats across the snow. Thin cut low density Paulownia strips are combined with 7 mm Poplar beams to create a unique ply configuration. The result is an energetic core that is extremely light and strong with excel-lent dampening properties.

PANDA CORE™

Warspeed

Mercury

Kazu Kokubo Pro

The PANDA CORE™ was built for a high performance return of energy in a lightweight and versatile core. From razor sharp turns on demand, to huge ollies, this core was engineered with all-terrain technical freestyle riding in mind. Comprised of our P2 Superlight™ Core and enhanced with inlaid Bamboo Power Rods, this high-density core is strong enough to meet the needs of the all-terrain customer while saving considerable weight.

CORK INLAID PRO CORE™

Scott Stevens Pro

The CORK INLAID PRO CORE™ was engineered specifically for Scott’s unique riding style allowing an extreme mix of dampening and durability with the energy required for spontaneous and creative riding. Comprised of an even mix of Poplar and Paulownia wood with cork recessed into 30% of the top of the core, the CORK INLAID PRO CORE™ is the damp and durable core custom made to meet the needs of Sleepy Stevens himself.

Ultrafear™

Springbreak Twin

The P2 SUPERLIGHT CORE™ is an extremely lightweight and versatile core. Engineered for the Ultrafear urban assault weapon and The Outsiders park destroyer, this core can withstand high impact and delivers maximum pop. Comprised of an even mix of Poplar and Paulownia wood, it is strong enough to excel at the highest level while saving considerable weight.

CANADIAN MAPLE DUAL CORE™

The Outsiders

Jess Kimura Pro

The CANADIAN MAPLE DUAL CORE™ features internal Poplar strips fused with more dense and powerful Maple woodgrain through the insert area and along the rails. In addition to its performance properties, this core smells like maple syrup and the fresh outdoors, hails from Canada, and rips like crazy despite being incredibly polite.

POWERSHIFT RFC DUAL CORE™

Volcom Pat Moore Pro

The POWERSHIFT RFC DUAL CORE™ was built for next level performance. It is lightweight, and with no irregularities or finger joints, its uniform flex provides an incredibly smooth ride. This dual species core is constructed with the highest quality Poplar and Beech woods enabling the rider to hold a solid edge while carving, eliminating chatter at high speeds, and contributing more power to ollies and landings.

RFC DUAL SPECIES TOURING CORE WITH SPLIT READY ABS CENTERLINE

C.SLASHER

Ever wanted to run your Charlie Slasher as a split board but didn't want to risk the integrity of the core? The DUAL SPECIES TOURING CORE™ takes the DNA of a new Charlie Slasher Poplar/Beech combo core and adds a doublewide ABS sidewall down the center line. This allows you the versatility to keep your Charlie intact as a powder machine, or to split it down the middle into a touring set without risking water damage to the core. Reforestation certified.

DS SELECT RFC SUSTAINABLE DUAL CORE™

DEFENDERS OF AWESOME

SUPERNOVA

BIRDS OF A FEATHER

The DS SELECT RFC SUSTAINABLE DUAL CORE™ was built for the consistent, dependable feel required from riders looking to take their skills to the next level. This lightweight core has no irregularities or finger joints providing uniform flex for consistency.

These cores have been reforestation certified by a leading environmental agency for nature and habitat sustain-ability, and made with a single species Poplar grain for a smooth, consistent ride. Extending from edge to edge and tip to tail the wood grain has no knots or finger joints enhancing response and providing a completely uniform flex pattern.

RFC Popular CORE

Micro-scope

Providing consistent, easy, predictable flex while maintaining strength and forgiveness is what the Poplar core is all about. This basic kids core holds up to anything the groms can throw at it without breaking the bank.

REFORESTATION CERTIFIED (RFC) WOOD CORES

All of our RFC SUSTAINABLE wood cores are certified by the Forest Stewardship Council. These cores come from managed forests that are certified for protection of biodiversity and wildlife habitat; sustainable harvest levels; protection of water quality; and prompt regeneration (e.g., replanting and reforestation).

Fiberglass

Fiberglass combined with specialized resins are used on the top and bottom of the wood core to protect it from water damage and is also a very important component when controlling the strength and flex of our boards. We use a mechanized dispensing system which accurately provides a calculated amount of resin per board to ensure the proper resin to glass ratio is being achieved. This process eliminates potential dry spots, preventing de-lamination and ensures no weight is added from excess resin. All CAPiTA boards are made this way and feature one of the following glass and resin configurations.

WarpSpeed

Our friends at Union Binding Company have worked with us to integrate their industry first FORGED CARBON technology into multiple models for 2016. Lighter and stronger than titanium, FORGED CARBON is the future of high-end, performance based products and now we have integrated the technology into two models. The Spring Break Powder boards have FORGED CARBON Diamond Packs in the insert area of the Blocked Balsa SURFLITE™ CORE, while the all new hard charging wide series WARPSPEED features FORGED CARBON in the tip and tail eliminating chatter through variable train.

Nano Carbon Forks

The Black Snowboard Of Death

NANO-CARBON technologies have been developed on an atomic level for applications ranging from Superyachts to Aerospace to Outer Space. Sound too tech for snowboarding? We don’t think so. Engineered with high performance Matrix Resin, these pressure molded 30 mm forks have a compressive strength 25% higher than the already incredible pre-cured carbon boosters.

PRE-CURED CARBON V-TECH

Warspeed

These 30 mm CARBON strips are strategically PRE-CURED into an arched shape that counters the board's reverse camber profile. This counter acting configuration multiplies the energy when the board is flexed and creates a board with twice the ollie power and response than a board with standard carbon additives.

NEW! ENGINEERED CARBON ARCS

Scott Stevens Pro

These 20 mm CARBON ARCS are constructed utilizing an all new computer engineered carbon shaping process. After extensive lab work analyzing how a particular shape reacts to the dynamics of riding, each piece of pre-shaped and pre-laminated CARBON FIBER is made to exact standards that enhance the positive features of a particular board.

PRE-CURED BASALT BEAMS

Scott Stevens

The Originating from solidified volcanic lava, BASALT is an abundant resource long known for it’s thermal properties, strength, and durability. When carefully oriented into the board, this natural material helps you increase power and pop while creating a damp, calm ride. We have PRE-CURED this into an arched shape that counters the board's camber profile. This counter acting configuration multiplies the energy when the board is flexed and creates a board with twice the ollie power and response than a board with standard BASALT additives.

Resin Systems

Our resins are unique to the snowboard industry as they have been formulated to require lower process temperatures. A lower temperature requirement in the press equals less energy needed to make each board. This system plays a key role in the high efficiency of our production facility and aligns with our sustainable initiatives. We utilize two advanced resin compositions.

The wax infused ENDURO™ BASE is a favorite in the CAPiTA collection because of its versatility. This base material strikes a unique and sought after balance between high performance and low maintenance. They are highly wax absorbent and allow longer time periods between waxing sessions. These bases are created by taking pellets of extra-high-molecular-weight Polyethylene and compressing them through heat and pressure. The minuscule spaces left behind absorb wax and allow for extended periods of high speed shredding as the wax wicks to the surface while you ride. This prevents your base from drying out and keeps the surface feeling freshly waxed throughout the day. Properly maintained sintered bases are fast, durable, and are the preferred choice of pro snowboarders worldwide.

XXX[TRUDED]™ BASE

Indoor Survival

Outerspace Living

Thunderstick

The XXX[TRUDED]™ base material takes the characteristics and manufacturing techniques used in creating normal extruded base material but due to higher pressure and temperature, increases the surface hardness to levels near most sintered bases. This increases the durability and surface strength creating a base that will last longer and be more durable when jibbing and bombing around the mountain.

HMC EXTRUDED BASE

Spacemetal Fantasy

Slusher Slasher

We use a classic, time proven, extruded base material for our lower-priced utility boards. True to all extruded bases, the HMC bases are low maintenance, user-friendly bases that perform well with or without your constant waxing and attention. The HMC EXTRUDED is a special “higher molecular composition” base that is denser, more durable, and more abrasion resistant than standard extruded bases. The result is a hard, fast, and reliable base that will get you where you want to go.

HTP EXTRUDED BASE

Sidewall Tech

URETHANE TOPSHEET ANCHOR

The Black Snowboard Of Death

Spacemetal Fantasy

Slusher Slasher

Shearing layers are essential to a board’s durability. When the outer areas of a snowboard flex there are opposing forces that stress the construction layers. In order to reduce that amount of internal force a softer layer can act as a shock absorber. This thin layer of URETHANE placed between more rigid materials allow the board to flex without the risk of failure during impact.

1.5 mm CORK DAMPENING

Scott Stevens Pro

Ultrafear

Damp, durable, and lighter than rubber, our new CORK EDGE DAMPENING SYSTEM is placed in between the steel edge and the ABS sidewall for increase protection from blunt force impacts. The Ultrafear features this exclusive dampening system underfoot where most boards meet rails, and the Scott Stevens Pro features a full contact length system because with him… you just never know what’s going to happen.

In constant progression, we don’t sit idle in the R&D lab — awards or not. FORTRESS™ KEVLAR BOUND SIDEWALLS are bonded by a Kevlar “S” wrap from the top of the sidewall to the underside of the core. For 2016/17 a new Kevlar shape provides an even lighter weight technology that binds the sidewall and core material together like no other./p>

Flex Ratings

soft

stiff

Technology integrated into snowboard construction affects many characteristics of a board’s performance. Flex, along with weight, stability, energy and other factors come into play when considering whether a board is right for you. Flex may be the most important as it will determine how you are able to manipulate your board on snow. Soft, flexible boards are great for jibbing and overall command over your snowboard, especially in the park. They’re easy to ride and very forgiving. Stiffer boards have more pop, more energy, and more stability at high speeds but they require more effort and skill from the rider as well.

All boards in this catalog are rated on a scale from 1 to 10. The number given is the estimated resistance the board may provide to the average customer.

1 would be the resistance of a noodle, 10 would be the resistance of a tree trunk.

Blend Zones

All snowboard shapes are designed with four blend zones. This is the area after the sidecut ends and before the nose or tail shape starts. In this small section, the shape of the board must transition from a sidecut arc going one direction into the tip shape arc going in the opposite direction. This very important section of the board is similar to the steering system in your car. It's the driving force in initiating turns and determining where your board is going. A poorly designed blend zone will cause your board to be hooky or turn slowly, and could limit your ability to transition between edges. CAPiTA has taken the time to pay distinct attention to this detail; fine-tuning each and every board to make sure your riding experience is balanced and perfect.

Sidecut

Sidecut is the arching shape that the outer rails of the board take from the wide points near the nose and tail toward the narrow point in the middle of the board. Sidecut dictates the board's turning functionality along with the personality of a snowboard.

Progressive

Warspeed

Supernova

A true PROGRESSIVE sidecut consists of two or more radii blended together to accommodate the three stages of a turn. They provide easy turn initiation, while offering greater control throughout the turn and maximum power when exiting.

New Age Directional

Mercury

Our 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™.

Spring Break Powder

Inspired by a combination of surfboard design and on snow riding functionality, the all new SURF BLENDED RADIAL sidecut is the ultimate powder surfing shape. This shape features a radial sidecut just through and past the inserts, followed by a huge smooth reverse blend zone and then topped off with a ton of taper. Surf the earth and get loose in the white room!

Radial Taper

C.Slasher

KAZU KOKUBO PRO

Engineered for deep powder but still versatile around the mountain, this radial sidecut is complemented by a tapered tail. This narrower tail section naturally sinks in the powder while the wider nose section floats above the snow line. The result is less work and more fun as the board surfs on one smooth continual arc.

ASYMMETRICAL

Spring Break Twin

An ASYMMETRICAL board features different sidecut theories on each edge of the same board. For the 2016/17 Spring Break Asymmetrical Twin, we have implemented a large and smooth Radial sidecut for the toe-side edge of the board while the heel-side edge of the board features a tighter NEW AGE DIRECTIONAL sidecut with DEATH GRIP™.

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 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.

Printing Tech

At CAPiTA, not only do we strive to make the most Totally Incredible Technical Snowboards™ in the world, we think it’s important that they look beautiful too.

The fact is, getting snowboards to look AMAZING is hard. The technical requirements for bonding and durability in extreme climatic and physical conditions severely limits options, and these challenges keep most companies confined to standard methods. The result is often a lifeless, soulless, reproduction that fails to explore the particular possibilities of each graphic.

Through rigorous testing, wild experimentation and hard-earned experience, our mad art scientists have developed new techniques that maximize each graphic’s unique potential. Our mission is to completely surpass what was once technically impossible.

DEEPSPACE™ DESIGN THEORY

You don’t like shallow humans, so why would you like shallow topsheets? 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 we are able to imbue our graphics with a sense of life through depth.

Simple in theory, it requires an expert knowledge of ink bonding characteristics and curing times to make production efficient and technically feasible.

It’s also expensive as hell, and considered to be cost prohibitive for many of our competitors.

Sublimation is an exact science for an inexact process. In sublimation, ink is pushed through a substrate into base material using pressure and heat.

As base material is thicker and more opaque than topsheets, graphics become more vibrant when ink impregnates the material as opposed to other techniques where the ink is applied to one side or the other. Through sublimation, ink sits closer to the sliding surface and this technique excels when full colors are required. Many long nights were spent tinkering with a complex combination of cook-times, pressure and temperature in a highly controlled environment to achieve some of CAPiTA’s signature base graphics.

PLT TOPSHEET TECHNOLOGY™

ALL OUR SNOWBOARDS ARE MAGICAL!!

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 shit 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.

SCIENCE IS MAGIC, WAAAAHBAH!!
