The Mothership Connection
Connectivity. It is magic in its most genuine form. It is what we utilize to illuminate our lives as our contentment is deeply aected by the connections we establish with one another, mother nature, and the universe.
With artistic endeavors, there is beauty in creation itself. We take pause in the release of constructive energy as it eventually ebbs against a new flow of endorphins entering our soul. It feels good to be imaginative and for some, this release alone procures contentment. For others, interaction and interconnectedness are essential to fully experience happiness.
We are the latter. We need to connect with like-minded beings. We wish to share our stories and our creations with you. We want you to engage and interact, to experience a life with us that involves powder fields, best friends, high fives, the perfect handrail or the once in a lifetime helicopter.
We would like to share something previously unimaginable. In a beautiful Austrian valley, located near the core of the alpine spirit, we have built the most advanced snowboard production facility in the world. It is called The CAPiTA Mothership, and we are very proud. Inside the sloping exterior shell, we have aimed at towering heights regarding what products we produce and how we will produce them. We have gone to great lengths to obliterate the existing status quo in snowboard production, as we realize that our pursuit of fun comes with great responsibility.
Our hopes and dreams are that this facility will take us collectively into a better future, and we would like to invite you to join us on our journey ahead. The Mothership is not for us alone; it is for you and it stands as our connection to the next generation in snowboarding.
100% hydro powered facility
ozone depletion potential
global warming potential
The NH3 natural gas heating system has an ODP (Ozone Depletion Potential) and GWP (Global Warming Potential) of 0, with a COP (coe cient of performance) of 5. Which means that for every 1 unit of energy consumed by the system, 5 units of energy for heating and cooling is achieved. It’s like making the e.ort to spin 360 but landing a silky smooth 1800 instead.
The Mothership is also designed to maximize the use of natural light during the day by having ample skylights and strategically placed interior cutaways throughout the entire facility — while energy e cient LED lighting acts as supplementary illumination where necessary.
The company’s philosophy promotes sustainable initiatives, such as the use of reforestation certified wood cores and development of advanced recycling for industrial material. Healthier production techniques and materials will also be utilized, like water-based inks, plant-based resin and solvent-less finishing.
ON-SITE BOARD TESTING SLOPE.
The Advanced R&D Lab will feature one of a kind capabilities such as a groomed, 3/4 mile (1.2 km) long board testing slope on-site.

98% of our materials are sourced within a close proximity to The Mothership.
Using regional ground travel to obtain materials instead of pan-continental trucking or pan-global airfreight, supports local business and results in less energy used and less emissions released.
