Board: Capita Indoor Survival
Camber Option: Park V1 Profile. Traditional camber into a small flat section before the upkick.
Bindings: Rome Black Label
Stance: 21.5 Wide 15 Negative 12 Goofy
Boots: K2 Thraxis Size 10
My Weight: 200lbs
Resort: Copper Mountain
Conditions: Warm temps, mix of clouds and bluebird skies, zero wind, and firm fast snow.
Flex: By changing out the Titanal Struts to Fiberglass ones it makes the board a little softer especially in the tips. This brings the overall flex down to a true middle of the road. So you have softer tips, stiffer underfoot, then it gets softer between the feet. There’s a fair amount of torsional flex to it.
Stability: This boards a little loose in the tips and you get a bit of chatter at speeds in really firm snow that resonates back underfoot. In rutted out terrain this board bends with everything and doesn’t wash out but it will keep you on your toes.
Ollies: This board has a ton of snap. Those carbonfiber struts just rebound so much and snap amazingly. With this board having traditional camber you do have to load it a little bit to get it to pop. You can launch off everything no problem.
Pop On Jumps: This board is completely at home on jumps. It snaps off the lip and really boosts. If you like airtime you need to be considering this board.
Butterability: The tips have a nice sweet spot right where the camber meets the small flat section. This optimizes the platform for buttering and you can lock in and do whatever you want. There is a bunch of rebound in this board so you can pop out of any variation you do but it never fights you.
Jibbing: This board is at home on rails with moderate to fast speeds. You lock into nose and tail presses with ease and snap right out of them. Getting sideways this board hugs the feature and feels secure locking into a slide.
Carving: Nimbleness is the best way to describe the sidecut on this board. It rolls from edge to edge with zero effort and just drives through quick turns effortlessly. When you rail a hard turn it locks in and drives exceptionally well. The one down side is on ice it gets a little wonky and doesn’t grip so well, but that happens with countless other boards.
Rider in Mind: Camber loving park rider.
Personal Thoughts: So last years version was noticeably stiffer than this one and it was an OK board. Now that this has the Carbon Fiber Struts it changes everything! This board is more what it should be and it’s phenomenal. It’s playful where you want it, but you can still charge where you need to.
