Snowboard Capita Defender Of Awesome

Note: The colour of the bases may be different from the picture displayed on the website, manufacturers combine colours 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

  • 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. 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

  • Hybrid Camber Profile  :

    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.


  • 360 Degree Steel Edges
  • Wax Infused Enduro™ Base  :

    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.
