Merchant of all-mountain mayhem.
Massacre the entire mountain with unflappable poise and supreme float when you're riding the Capita Black Snowboard of Death. Designed as a directional board with a one-inch set-back, the Black Snowboard of Death (BSOD) effortlessly planes over deep, untracked powder, especially when you consider its slightly tapered shape with its nose being 5-millimeters wider than the tail. The result is a board that shreds fresh powder without submerging, maintaining a buoyant feel in the nose that's almost impossible to sink.
Further adding to the BSOD's all-mountain prowess, the board's Mountain FK profile gives you camber underfoot, extending 5-centimeters past the binding inserts. Camber underfoot allows for powerful edge hold and high levels of control when you're blasting down the mountain at high speeds and flying off kickers and natural features. The large rockered nose adds ridiculous float, especially when you're planing through deep powder and heavy spring snow. Additionally, the board's flat tail transitions to a smaller rockered zone, giving you a proper zone for loading up ollies and boosting off natural features without hanging up.
Loaded with Capita's lightest, most high-tech core, the BSOD uses a Hover Core that's composed of low-density paulownia strips and poplar beams. This makes for a board that's ridiculously light and strong with excellent dampening properties. Pre-curved Carbon Boosters are strategically placed into an arched shape that counters the board's camber profile for lots of pop. Additionally, the BSOD uses an extremely fast Wax Infused Sintered Speed base, helping you tear apart the mountain without bogging down in deep snow.

If you are looking for the best all mountain board out there this is it. It was shocking how light this board actually is, if you are unsure just go into a shop and pick it up, flex this thing and stand on it. Put some contact pro's on this board and its one of the lightest setups possible. The nose shape looks awesome under your feet i was 100% confident on everything snowbasin had to throw at me. I would love to ride this board again
