Capita Ultrafear 155W 2020 Snowboard
The Captia Ultrafear 155W 2020 snowboard is a 3-time winner of the Transworld good wood award and is featured in many video parts. And there are a few reasons for that. Kevlar, Titanal Body Armor, Cork Edge dampening system & Holy-Sheet fiberglass make this board an advanced piece of technology. This results in high stifness and ollie power. Ideal for the advanced rider who loves the snowpark.
Terrain: All Mountain Freestyle
This snowboard can handle the highest speeds on the piste and remains very stable and precise. This is due to a combination of factors. The hybrid camber profile, higher flex and extra Kevlar/Titanial body armor play an important role in this. The Capita Ultrafear also features a classic Twin shape, which makes it ideal for freestyle as well. Perfect for popping slopes, carving, hitting jumps and chasing powder off-piste.
Profile: Hybrid Camber
The camber profile of your board determines its stiffness, and how fast it will respond. Hybrid camber combines the best of both worlds. It offers enough stability at high speeds, but also enough flex in the nose and tail to be able to have fun on the piste and in the snowpark. The rocker in the nose and tail of stiffer boards like this one provides extra float in the powder.
This board is completely Twin, which means that it is 100% symmetrical in every way. Both in terms of stiffness, flex and outline shape. This has many advantages. You can easily switch (with the wrong foot in front). This is an important aspect when you land a 180 from a jump or want to ride a switch.
For the slope eaters among us, a Twin is also very pleasant to switch sides and thus to blast down the mountain in a new way.
The flex rating of this snowboard determines for a large part how it will react.
The flex rating is given on a scale from 1, extremely flexible to 10, extremely stiff. The higher the flex rating, the more responsive your snowboard is, and the faster it will respond to your actions. Easy to compare with car racing on a circuit. 1 to 2 is a family car that is forgiving and chill, while 6 to 7 is a Formula 1 car that reacts to every little nudge.
5.5/10 Flex is in the higher class of stiffness. This makes for a very stable ride, especially when you're banging on the road. The response of a 5.5/10 flex board is also a lot higher than average. With this type of board, you can feel that the edge changes are extremely fast and that the snowboard performs very quickly what you as a rider expect from it.
Level: Average to expert The
flex rating, reinforcement, and base ofthis
board give it the characteristics needed by average to expert riders. The stiffness between the bindings provides stability at high speeds. The Kevlar/Titanial body armor makes the board even more durable, and the Sintered Quantum base lets you glide fast. This means you can also enjoy this snowboard as a beginner, but your level will have to grow a bit more to get the most out of it.
Base: Sintered Quantum BaseThe
base, or underside of this gem always consists of miniscule holes or pores. The Sintered base means there are more pores in the board so it will absorb and release more wax than an extruded base board. It costs a bit more, but when waxed properly, it glides a lot better. Especially on warm days and on flat sections you'll notice a big difference with a well waxed sintered base board.
Extras: Kevlar/Titanal Body armor - Cork edge dampening
The woodcore of this snowboard is reinforced with a number of extras.
These add extra stiffness, stability and pop. This means the board will respond faster and better, will jump easier when you do.
The Kevlar/Titanal body armor compensates for the flat to rocker shape and provides high speed stability with a good dose of stiffness. Add to that the Triax/Biax Holysheet structure and you get a beast of a board that offers stiffness in all the right places.
The edges are reinforced with Cork Edge Dampening to absorb vibrations and shocks while keeping the weight down.
