Snowboard Capita Defender Of Awesome

Note: The actual colour of the board's base may be different than the one shown on the picture. Brands make them randomly.

Do we really need to introduce the Defender of Awesome? This is probably the most popular and notorious Capita snowboard, a freestyle deck getting its lot of awards every season. As usual, the 2017 version is loaded with style and innovative technologies. For instance, the new DOA features the Fortress Kevlar Bound Sidewalls, a lateral kevlar reinforcement giving the board more power and more stability to cope with your hard charging needs. 

What can the Capita Defender Of Awesome snowboard do? 

From piste to park, this flexy snowboard can do it all. Its positive camber between the bindings delivers edge control and pop while the mix of flat camber and rocker on the rest of the board brings manoeuvrability and playfulness. This means you can have fun working on your switch technique on piste, pop ollie over slow signs, ride through the woods or charge down the fall line without laying a single turn, the Defender of Awesome will handle it. Freestylers are going to love the lively character of the board and its strong construction making it perfectly capable of withstanding repeated rail assaults. The lateral kevlar reinforcements maximise the board’s dampening and improve landings with a better shock absorbtion. It’s a real park killer that’s going to turn the resort into a new giant playground.   

Who is the Capita Defender Of Awesome snowboard designed for? 

Playful and versatile snowboard, the Capita Defender Of Awesome is a good pick for intermediate and advanced riders looking for a freestyle-friendly shred gun. You can use it on park or on piste, the DOA excels on both.

Structure - Construction

  •  :

    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. This lightweight, strong material, when moulded into a snowboard, increases power and response while remaining ultralight.

  • Special Blend EVO Tech  :

    SPECIAL BLEND EVO TECH is an Eco Friendly wet lay-up process that uses a polyurethane based resin component requiring lower consumption of energy and yielding higher thechnical 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 biaxial glass laminated in conjunction with structural additives to customize performance objectives.

  • Fortress™ Kevlar Bound Sidewalls  :

    With three Transworld Good Wood Awards in three years for the DOA series, it's clear the performance and value of these boards are unmatched. In constant progression, we don't sit iddle in the R&D lab - awards or not. Forming an S wrap from the top of the sidewall to the underside of the core, this Kevlar technology binds the sidewall and core material together like no other.

  • Full ABS Sidewalls with Silkcreened Graphics  :

    ABS Sidewalls

  • DS Select RFC Sustainable Core  :

    The DS SELECT core was built for next level performance. Lightweight, with no irregularities or finger joints, the DS core is constructed with the highest quality poplar and beech woods. Beech is placed along the rails, enabling the rider to hold a solid edge while carving, eliminating chatter at high speeds and contributing more power to ollies and landings. Poplar strips are fused with the beech sections for flex consistency and vibration absorption. The DS SELECT offers a consistent, comfortable, and powerful ride in a certified sustainable full wood core.

Rocker - Camber

  •  :

    Our Hybrid Camber Profile boards take full advantage of the benefits of traditional camber, zero camber, and reverse camber. This next generation design allows you to get the pop and response of a cambered board with all the predictability and easy turn initiation of zero camber or reverse camber shapes.

  •  :

    The wax infused Enduro™ Base is a favorite in the Capita collection beacause 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 wricks to the surface while you ride. This prevents your base from drying out and keeps the surface feeling freshly waxed throughout the day. Properly maintened sintered bases are fast, durable, and are the preferred choice of pro snowboarders worldwide.

Snow Binding Union Flite Pro Black

The Flite Pro Black is the entry-level binding at Union. Entry-level but not low-end, this men snowboard binding was upgraded and carries some of the latest techs developped by Union. The toe strap for instance, also called Ultragrip strap, is made of thermoplastic. It adjusts to any boot shape and keeps it locked in no matter what happens. More hold means more precision and more control for a better snowboarding. 

What can the Union Flite Pro Black snowboard binding do? 

This snowboard binding shines by its versatility. It can deal with all terrains and hop on and off piste with the smoothest transitions ever. The Flite Pro Black has no favorite playground really. The light and comfortable CP1 highback delivers control and snappy energy transfers on groomed snow for an efficient carving but it’s also very supportive when it comes to riding on the ungroomed. The heelcup combined with the chassis deliver a solid and stable feel through the crud while the dampening system works like a dream and makes the most difficult terrains feel like silk.  It’s also a great help in the park where it absorbs shocks better, keeping your knees in shape longer. To prove that Union makes quality bindings, they provide a lifetime warranty on all their baseplates and heelcups. 

Who is the Union Flite Pro Black designed for? 

Here’s a snowboard binding perfectly suited for intermediate or advanced riders looking for a great binding at the best value. Cheap and yet featuring high quality materials, the Flite Pro is a fantastic all-rounder for every type of riders.
