Summary

Our Breakdown: The Transworld Good Wood award winner record holder! To put it simply, if you want a solid snowboard that can do a little bit of everything for under $500 this is your guy. It has camber between the bindings to provide pop and edgehold, but then switches to a nice zero camber zone to give it the perfect amount of looseness/forgiveness. 

From Capita: The Defenders of Awesome series has a big reputation and these boards back it up. As winners of the most coveted design award in snowboarding for an unprecedented seven years in a row, this highly sought after series has now won a Transworld Good Wood Award every single year of its existence. That's an undefeated record, folks! The DOA features a next-generation hybrid-camber design which delivers the pop and response of a cambered board with the predictability of reverse-camber. With construction technology like Fortress™ Kevlar Bound Sidewalls advancing these boards beyond their modest retail price, the DOA series stands proud as the ultimate go anywhere, do anything freestyle deck.


Camber Profile

Resort V1 Profile – The Resort V1 Profile boards take full advantage of the benefits of traditional camber, zero camber, and reverse camber. This next generation design allows you to get the pop and response of a cambered board with all the predictability and easy turn initiation of zero camber or reverse camber shapes.

Flex

5.5/10

Shape

True Twin

Blended Radial Sidecut – Sidecut that features a single radius arc through the midsection of the board combined with a custom designed blend zone at the contact points. Varying the length of these blend zones and tailoring them specifically for certain aspects of riding greatly improves a board's performance.

Core

FSC® Certified Dual Core – Poppy lightweight Poplar combined with Beech for increased power and durability.

Laminates

Carbon Fiber Beams – Increase power and response while remaining ultralight.

Special Blend Fiberglass + Magic Bean™ Resin – Custom weighted Biaxial top / Biaxial bottom = increased strength and durability. Impregnated with reformulated, high performance plant based Magic Bean™ Resin.

Sidewalls

Fortress™ Kevlar Bound Sidewalls – Bonded by a Kevlar “S” wrap from the top of the sidewall to the underside of the core. This lightweight technology binds the sidewall and core material together like no other.

 

Base

Quantum Drive™ Base – Harder, stronger, faster, the Quantum Drive™ base is an updated sintered ultra-high molecular weight, ultra-high density polyethylene - Millenium Falcon of bases just got turbo charged.

Edges

360 Degree HRC48 Steel Edges

Topsheet

Multitech™ Level 4 DeepSpace™ Silkscreen + PAM16000™ Topsheet with Metallic Underlay –Strategically layering ink on multiple levels from the top and the bottom, CAPiTA imbues their graphics with a sense of life through depth.

PLT Topsheet Technology™ – PLT™ technology is exclusive to CAPiTA MFG and magically bonds the topsheet to an already pressed snowboard.

This is magical because the rest of the world mashes their topsheets on with glue, heat and pressure during the pressing stage. Doing so causes the fiberglass structure underneath to show through the topsheet. And because nobody wants to spend their hard earned cash on a bumpy snowboard, many companies slather their tops with a thick toxic lacquer to smooth things out. Not only is that shit HEAVY and can potentially develop unsightly hairline cracks, it’s also really unhealthy for the working environment.

The PLT™ machine produces a featherlight, smooth, high-gloss finish, without all that poisonous deadweight.
