They say: True twin mid-wide freestyle
We say: A relatively stiff flexing twin with a poplar and beech core that makes it poppy as hell. Carbon kevlar insert strips and the camber profile add to the springiness.
Tester says: Sweet, poppy and fast. Perhaps a bit heavy, but would suit an aggressive rider looking for a jibby stick.

- History lesson: Capita was founded by former Burton pro-rider and art afficianado Jason Brown in the early years of this century and quickly established itself as the anarchic devil-child of the snowboarding world. Capita combines this snotty punk-rock attitude with graphics by people who take themselves seriously as artists. But the brand is also renowned for its sense of humour, as classic designs like the twin-swallowtail Travis Parker pro-model showed. The graphic told riders where not to grab to avoid looking gay.
- Ridden by: Park rats who roll up the bottom of their beanies and keep their middle finger in a constant state of readiness to flick at police, parents or pisteurs. And unfortunately, the kind of wanker who thinks name-dropping Dash Snow makes him cool.
