All-terrain freestyle conjured through dark sorcery.
The Capita Black Snowboard of Death is an enchanted all-mountain freestyle machine capable of ripping apart steep chutes, pow-filled bowls, and icy groomers alike, making you the grim reaper of first lines everywhere. As Capita's longest running board series, the Black Snowboard of Death has been reinvented with a new core and shape for increased float in powder, tons of pop, and higher levels of control.
This directional board is slightly setback and features a 5mm tapered tail. New for this year, Capita crafted this board with a Mountain FK profile. Camber is used throughout the middle of the board, extending five centimeters past the binding inserts for high levels of grip and control. A larger, reverse camber nose from the Freeride FK is featured for superior float when planing through thick snow or deep powder. The tail of the board has a large zone of zero camber for loading up ollies, then transitions to a small reverse camber zone. The end result of this Mountain FK profile is a very poppy board that floats extremely well, but one that is also extremely stable on hard pack.
Brand spankin' new, Capita's Hover Core is composed of FSC certified wood strips and Flax fiber composite webbing. This makes an extremely lightweight, high-strength, and energetic board with increased dampening when riding over choppy snow or variable conditions. Pre-curved Carbon Fiber boosters are strategically placed into an arched shape that counters the board's camber profile, subsequently multiplying ollies and response. A wax-infused sintered base brings mind-warping speed and durability when maintained properly throughout the life of the board.

It Devours Everything!
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
So I am a big fan of the Capita boards. I upgraded from a 2010 stairmaster. This board rips! though not as flexy as the stairmaster it is great in the deep and super stable at high speeds. I have used it on several Backcountry outings as we as a few days on groomers. Overall this is a great board and I'm stoked on riding it.

black snowboard for the rest of my life

i love that the black snowboard evolves every year. this is not a hard board to ride, it's a fun board to ride.
this season the all new shape and mountain camber on the bsod is suited for heading down on a mission, handling anything that gets in your way.
the big difference in how this board rides over last year is all in the tail.
the new shape is slightly tapered, 5mm. the new mountain fk technology provides a zero camber behind your foot into the tail. so the board is more powerfull behind your back foot then last season. the slight tapper in the boards shape allows you to maneuver in deeper snow with ease. there is still reverse camber in the nose of the bsod, so front, side or backcountry pow lines are in your future.
