Snowboard Capita The Black Snowboard Of Death

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

The Black Snowboard of Death is back for 2017, still featuring super modern technologies such as nano carbon. This new version comes with a nose that rises a touch less, with a stiffer flex and a longer section of camber just to make sure the performance delivered is higher than high. The new main innovation is the Nano-Carbon Race Base ensuring a faster glide no matter the snow conditions. Make sure you’re ready for a blast! 

What can the Capita The Black Snowboard Of Death snowboard do? 

With a board that’s as versatile as this one, you can ride on piste or off piste as much as you want. The stiff construction and the traditional camber make the board super powerful and deliver an incredible edge control at high speed. You can lay precise carved arcs and race your buddies on the border cross with confidence. But Capita’s Black Snowboard of Death can also rip powder like crazy. The rockered nose keeps the board afloat naturally and moves through obstacles with an effortless ease. From wide pow fields to narrow steep couloirs, the board shreds mercilessly. It delivers support and power when it comes to slash a turn and it feels light and fluid when it’s about surfing. The board stands out of competition by the fact it’s easier to ride than most other boards of this category. 

Who is Capita The Black Snowboard Of Death designed for? 

We recommend this snow rocket to advanced or expert riders looking for a grippy and lively and precise and performance-driven snowboard suited for ripping groomers and smearing powder.

Structure - Construction

  •  :

    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 strengh 25% higher than the already incredible pre-cured carbon boosters.

  • Dynaweave Fiberglass  :

    The Dynaweave configuration features a resin/glass application borrowed from the marine industry, which yields much stronger and more rigid qualities allowing us to decrease the wood core thickness? The main focus is to save wood core weight by increasing resin performance. This means you get a lighter board while achieving higher Triax glass on the top of the core and biax beneath, creating more response while increasing strength and durability. Combine this layup with one of the many additives we have availableand you get a high performing board tailored to meet your style of riding.

  • Hover Core™  :

    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 accross the snow. Thin cut low density Paulownia srips are combined with Poplar beams to create a unique ply configuration. The result is an energetic core that is extremely light and strong with excellent dampening properties.

Rocker - Camber

  •  :

    The Mountain Profile features mid-body camber with a flat tail and a reverse cambered nose. This allows for tons of pop and stability on hard pack while increasing float and landing power, improving the rider's performance in deep snow.


  • 360 Degree Steel Edges
  • PLT Topsheet Technology
  •  :

    The Black Snowboard of Death isn't technically a race board, but the loyal fans of this board live life in the fast lane. They charge hard, and for 2016/17 we have integrated the fastest, meanest base available. With exceptionnal, anti-friction properties due to high moleclular mass and specialized processing aids, this is the material used to win World Cups and Olympics medals. Now, you can use it to leave your friends in the dust.

  • Urethane Topsheet Anchor  :

    Shearing layers are very important when it comes to a board's durability. When layers along the sidewalls flex and bend there is an internal force that wants to pull the layers apart creating a failure in a board's fiberglass. In order to reduce that amount of internal force a softer layer is needed to act as a shock absorber and keep the board together. This thin layer of Urethane allows the board to bend and flex without the risk of failure during impact.

Snow Binding Union Force Black

You may not be a jedi, we still wish the Force to be with you. Union continues to make this iconic binding for 2017 and it would have been a shame if they’d dropped it. Featuring a Stage 4 chassis made of Duraflex ST, the binding is extremely responsive and remains incredibly light. The aluminium heelcup and the high-end magnesium buckles do nothing to make this binding heavier but they do make it stronger. The most difficult thing with the Force Black is to choose the colour that matches your jacket don’t you think? 

What can the Union Force Black snowboard binding do? 

This snowboard binding is as versatile as it is comfortable. Terrains and conditions don’t matter as long as there is snow involved. The Force Black is a precise and responsive binding allowing riders to carve neat arcs on groomers at warp speed or to surf powder like a lord and stomp pillows with style and ease. Freestyle, freeride, it’s all the same, the Force Black is tweakable thanks to a good lateral flex and it is supportive thanks to a stiff medial one. Combined with well finished straps, the binding holds on the boot perfectly and transfers your energy while it absorbs vibrations and reduces impacts. 

Who is the Union Force Black snowboard binding designed for? 

No need to know how to swing a lightsaber to manage the Force, but you do need riding skills. Advanced snowboarders should get on well with the binding. It offers versatility and responsiveness, it remails ultra light and the SonicFuse straps are so comfortable it almost feels like there are none.
