Capita Snowboards 2010-2011

19 Feb, 2010


10 years ago, Capita Snowboards began their journey and as I’ve watched them grow in those 10 years they’ve never lost who they are.  Their symbolism, their passion and their appreciation of customers is what drives the company into creating boards that people come back for.  They’ve endured rough years, great years, award winning years and they continue to understand what makes their boards popular to the rider.  Their team truly represents the company to the core, rides the gear and make it better.  Congrats for 10 years!

Two years ago they introduced Flat Kick Technology, expanding it through the line last year and last year added powder FK to the mix.  This year they add in Freeride FK to their 10 year anniversary Black Snowboard of Death (yes the skull is back!).  In addition to their Flat Kick, they continue with the traditional camber in the boards meant to have camber on the mountain.  Lastly they have added the micro-scope, a kids reverse camber board with a convex shape.

    how will the horrorscope fk do off jumps and on pipe? and how wide can you make the stance of the stairmaster?

    Horoscope isn’t.really a pipe board. It’s a soft board geared towards jibbing.even the fk profile is changed for that with it having a smaller flat area in the middle. jumps I’m sure it could handle if they were a smaller or moderate set. May I suggest the indoor if you want fk and jumps and pipe?

  3. November 01, 2010

    fuck, I’ve only ridden the FK version of the indoor. One thing I like about FK is it’s not a far cry from camber, it gives you an option of playful and pop without going full force into rocker. Are you able to demo the capita first? Where do you live?

    wqe, I agree with lee. horrorscope is a soft park board that’s not meant to be in the pipe and most definitely not as stable for jumps. Indoor would be a better option. Or quiver killer if you want camber and the ultimate pipe board.

    I’m 5’9/150 lbs and ride in MN. I just picked up a 153 Ultrafear today and was wondering if the 153 will be okay for hitting 30-50 ft jumps…or should I have gone with the 155?

    Im guessing youre going to be ok. Might be right at the comfort zone for that board and your weight.(correct me if Im wrong Shay)

  6. November 04, 2010

    Matt, I think you’ll be fine on it. Might take some adjustment to how it handles off the jumps.

    Hi Shay, love your reviews.

    I’m trying to decide between the Horrorscope and the Ultrafear. I’m 5′ 6″ and 135lbs, I’m going to go for a 147 and was wandering if the Ultrafear would be too stiff to press for my weight making it not so good for me in the park, but I’m thinking the Horrorscope might be too soft and unstable (due to the smaller flat between the bindings) on jumps.

    Can you give me any advice?

  8. November 22, 2010

    Pibod, the ultrafear is still pressable and good in the park. I think you’ll find the ultrafear the better choice for jumping than the horrorscope.

    I bought the 149 horrorscope along with the super limited edition union ultrafear bindings. This will be my first reverse camber board and I’m worry that the transition will be be very difficult and limit my ability. So is the horrorscope a good first reverse camber? And does a reverse camber feel totally different ?

  11. December 17, 2010

    Wildoolittle, the horroscope is a really easy board to learn on and ride but it’s also a very very soft board. If you were looking for a soft park board that will have no problem buttering, you found it. Reverse camber is just a adjustment, you’ll see when you get on it.

    Alright thanks. I don’t find the softness because I’ll be spending most my time jibbing in the park or around town. Thanks!

    Hey, I am stuck between getting the indoor survival fk and the ultrafear fk. I ride park all day. Probably 60% jumps, 40% rails. What would you suggest for me?

  14. January 16, 2011

    Doug, tough choice but either way you are getting a solid board. Personally I’d have a hard time choosing between them myself.

    I think I’m leaning toward to ultrafear because I hear it’s poppier and easier to press. With some flux DS45′s

    Hey so i ride a 156 Rome Artifact currently and it’s my second board after a K2. I love it but it’s been a few seasons and getting time for a new board. Also i’ve been progressing to bigger jumps and the Artifact is kinda washy on the landings and not too stable at high speeds. I live out in California near Tahoe and ride mostly at Northstar resort about 50% park, 50% mountain and pow. I’m debating between the Stairmaster Extreme 156, Mid Life 155, or Indoor Survival (camber) 156. Also i’m 5’11” and about weight about 145-150lbs. Please help me decideee!
