The appeal of the CAPiTA Space Metal Fantasy doesn’t begin and end with its eye-catching graphics and name. For years it’s been a mainstay of the line, inviting intermediate female riders to step up their freestyle game.

Aside from a small flat section between the feet, this is fully rockered, so if your rail sessions tend to result more hang-ups than a PPI call centre worker, this might be the solution Combine the profile with the mellow flex and you’ve got one of the most butterable boards out there, one that cries out for spontaneous presses and jibs all over the mountain.

In the park is where it belongs, though; that low-consequence profile and true-twin shape mean that anyone who puts the hours in on the CAPiTA Space Metal Fantasy will soon see their trick bag deepen. The extruded base and all-poplar core will take a pounding on solid features, so there’s no need to hold back.

While it’s no all-rounder, as with most rocker boards you can still expect to get plenty of float in the powder. It could even open doors to a whole new world of backcountry freestyle, at a price that leaves you with more cash to spend on avy gear.

Tester's Verdict

Hannah Bailey

“With a name like this, you know you are about to head on an adventure. This has always been one of my favourite boards to ride because it is fun, playful and supportive. Whether you’re making turns or getting air, it’s always a nice feeling – like shredding in outer space…

You really can take this board everywhere, from the park to the piste – it encourages you down the mountain and is equally enjoyable to look at."
