Get off the Nordic Track and hit the rails on the Capita Stairmaster Snowboard.
Built shorter and wider than other Capita models, the Stairmaster Snowboard exists to run laps through the park. Capita engineered this twintip for buttering jibs—not burning lactic acid in front of the tube—and dialed it to respond to your every command. Some people say Capita shot itself in the foot with this board. But those people are dumb. Originally intended as a discount ride, the Stairmaster has acquired legendary status due to its wicked-fun rideability and puny price tag. With full-wrap steel edges, a poppy poplar core, and a radial sidecut for smooth turns, the Stairmaster guarantees you more rails-per-dollar than any board out there.

Let me just come out and say it. I absolutely love this board! Even though it's marketed as a park board, in my opinion, it has the perfect flex pattern for a freestyle, park, and even a bit of all mtn too... As long as you're not expecting the Stairmaster to allow you to Euro-carve your way down the black runs or to float ontop of 6" of fresh pow. In my opinion this is the perfect board to take to the hill on days when it hasn't snowed. I guarantee that the flex pattern will allow you to pull out sketch landings when busting serious airs & is still buttery as hell, without being a wet noodle like the WWW. After riding 1/2 the season on my Lib Dark Series, I find myself only wanting to ride the Stairmaster...Yes, it's that good.
best value park board
For the price I bought it, I can't complain ($255). Flexy as hell, can butter with ease (although not as flexy as my friend's Ride Kink). LIGHT spin weight... it really does make spinning easy. Roll the edges a bit and you can lock onto boxes and rails easily. I learned many tricks in my first season trying jibs and jumps with this board. It's great for the park. tolerable on the groomers, powder, and glades but it'll be a workout, especially using max 24" wide stance.
Buy This Board
i just got a 159 stairmaster, and its amazing. nice and flexy, but not toooo soft, perfect flex id say, sooooo poppy. and its effing cheap. got here fast too. took like a week or something.
all i ride is park, and this board is everything you could ask for and more. it has like a super tough base material too, i shred the base of my board super fast, but this ones stood up soooo well, only like one big scratch on it, and its not even bad. and its still relatively fast.
only one thing i can think of that i dont like about it, is the top sheet is a little delicate around the edges, its one of the top sheets that will peel up fairly easily, so ill see how it stands up, but so far so good.
It's perfect for the park. Nice and flexy for presses but it is great off jumps too. So easy to spin. I'm 5'10" 140 lbs 12 boot and got the 152 wide and its perfect.
Rides Smooth through the park
This board is a great buy if you love the park. It is a little wider which makes it better for rails and it is rater light. I demoed it at Highcascade and it rides really smooth on rails and off jumps. I highly recommend it.
Well for anyone whos getting this board, trust me. you'll really like it. Good feel for jumps and good flex for you rail jocks out there.
