Defenders of Awesome, Capita’s answer to the question ‘what exactly is an excellent all-mountain board?’. This board has been around for quite a while now, and during these years it’s managed to build quite the fan base for itself. DOA is an all-rounder that pleases many and, what’s more, you seldom find a board that is praised so much by so many different types of riders. Whether it’s park or piste that pleases you, this board does both – and does it well.
Despite its camrock profile, this beast is mainly camber orientated. You’ll get plenty of pop and stability with this stick, and with a short flat part just outside the bindings you’ll get even more stability whether you’re riding piste or rails. The short rocker section at both tip and tails adds forgiveness to the ride and jibbing around the slopes becomes a considerable option too.
“With a higher density for durability you’ll feel like you’ve just entered a scene from Fast & Furious”
This boss of a board is as tough as a bulletproof vest. Literally. The sidewalls of the DOA are made out of Kevlar, which is the same material used for bulletproof vests. Using a Kevlar S wrap, the sidewalls are wrapped from the top of the sidewall to the underside of the core with a lightweight and durable technology. Safe to say, you can charge through anything without having to fear that the board could be about to take a fatal hit.
Not like you’d be lacking any speed with this turbo turner, but to make this vessel sail even faster – Capita’s added their new Quantum Drive base to it. With a higher density for durability, you’ll feel like you’ve just entered a scene from Fast & Furious. Not only is this new base faster, it also absorbs more wax, so you can spend less time standing in front of the waxing table and more time on the slopes.
Cruise or charge – Capita’s bestselling beast is down for anything. This stick is a confidence booster, ready to give you the ride of your life. If you’re looking for a board that can not only do it all, but do it well, Capita’s DOA is definitely worthy of consideration.
