Kevin Backstrom's personal pipe slasher, a long-time team favourite and winner of countless awards, the Capita 'Defenders of Awesome' snowboard is a cosmic healing force to be valued and embraced. Take this Defender of Awesome as your spirit guide on this walk we call life, embrace the positive and reap the rewards.
Made at the Capita Mothership, a truly innovative facility, this wonder of a snowboard will help you and the homies hi-five all through this winter, and hopefully well into the future. Capita's mantra that 'Everything is possible' shines through more than ever in the factory setup. The whole place is run 100% on hydropower, with zero ozone depletion potential and zero global warming potential. This factory is leading the charge to safeguard our winters and snowboarding's future.
The company’s philosophy promotes sustainable initiatives, such as the use of reforestation certified wood cores and development of advanced recycling for industrial material. Healthier production techniques and materials are utilized, like water-based inks, plant-based resin and solvent-less finishing.
But back to the board. The 2017 Defenders of Awesome series features a next-generation hybrid-camber design. There's positive camber running between the bindings to 5cm past the inserts, which then rolls into a zero camber section before the reverse camber kicks in at the scoop of the nose and tail and the Wah-Pow! launches the profile (and you) into a new celestial kingdom of awesome. This whole setup delivers the pop and response of a cambered board with the predictability of reverse-camber so you can take this anywhere on the mountain to find ultimate truth and happiness.
With an all-new fibreglass and resin configuration, as well as an upgraded SuperdriveTM base material, the ultimate go anywhere, do anything freestyle deck just got even better. The Fortress Kevlar bound sidewalls will protect you from any negative vibes while the tip to tail carbon fibre beams will give you the extra snap to set in motion your journey to find your spirit guide.
Although, not all spirit guides are of human descent. Some live as energy in the cosmic realm. Some live as light beings, which are the highest level of guides. The Defenders of Awesome are the latter. They have travelled through time and space to assist in your journey on Earth. They are the most radiant of light beings, known by cosmic theorists as the Kult of Positive Force. They are the incorporeal beings assigned to you at the emergence of life to help you fulfil your spiritual contract with the maker.
Fulfil your contract and visit a mountain landscape near you, just remember that this board comes in a plethora of sizes to suit any snowboarding adventurer. Truly undefeated, the DOA is one of the best in the game and has the accolades to prove it. Surrender yourself and let the healing begin.
