Review Summary

Avg. Tester Rating: ☆☆☆☆☆ (5/5)

The 2024 Capita Aeronaut Snowboard receives glowing reviews from a variety of riders, highlighting its versatility, performance, and modern design enhancements. It is a true quiver killer, impressing both advanced all-mountain freestyle riders and twin riders seeking a powder board with tricks in mind.

Reviewers praise the board’s directional shape, which holds freestyle genes and features a stiff, poppy tail for boosting side hits. The elongated nose provides a keen sense for butters, while the reliable sidecut ensures a well-rounded experience. Carving on high-speed groomers is a standout feature, with the board excelling in stability and speed. Its low swing weight allows for effortless spins off park jumps, further adding to its versatility.

Despite not being tested extensively in powder, reviewers believe the Aeronaut would perform admirably due to its responsive and nimble nature. The traditional poppy and snappy camber, combined with superior edge hold, ensure precise and enjoyable turns, with impressive edge precision and maneuverability on display.

In summary, the 2024 Capita Aeronaut Snowboard is a highly recommended choice for riders seeking a versatile all-mountain deck. It combines the best of both worlds, appealing to advanced all-mountain freestyle riders who prefer directional boards and twin riders looking for a powder-capable board that can still handle tricks. With its modern design enhancements, reliable edge hold, and exceptional performance on groomers, the Aeronaut proves itself to be a true winner for a wide range of riding styles and terrain.

Why should you trust evo’s Field Tested Reviews? Great question!

By collecting unbiased, in-depth reviews from our most experienced skiers and snowboarders, we hope to help you find the best gear to maximize your fun in the mountains!

Testing for the 2024 CAPiTA Aeronaut Snowboard:

3, 2, 1, Blast Off!


“I’m 6ft 185lbs with a 10.5 boot and I’ve been riding for 21 years. I was able to test this board in the 161cm size on a hardpack groomer day with the Union Atlas size M. You’ve seen Arthur ride, now you can try to be a rocket man yourself. This board delivers, it was my favorite of all I demoed this year and is a true quiver killer for most riders. The directional shape holds freestyle genes in every inch. The tail is stiff and poppy allowing you to boost those side hits into euphoria. The elongated nose has a keen sense of smell for butters and a reliable sidecut rounds this board out. Due to conditions I was carving on high speed groomers and this board excelled, I have no doubt it would be the same in powder. It had a low swing weight for a board of this size and I had no problem spinning off a park jump on it. I’d recommend this board to an advanced all mountain-freestyle rider who likes riding directional boards. Or for the twin rider looking for a powder board that can still hang with all the tricks they can think of.”

Awesome all-mtn board for intermediates and experts!


“Had the opportunity to demo this board on a groomer day and this was the only board I kept for a couple extra laps! This board is responsive but still felt nimble and not overly aggressive. I’m about 5’11” 170lbs with size 10.5 boots and I really enjoyed bombing groomers and even hitting a little park on this board (157cm). I didn’t get a chance to take this into powder but my hunch is it would do great in fresh snow as well.”

Feels like a Space ride!


“This board takes me back to the Capita classics like the Stairmaster, except with modern enhancements, design, and tech. This board offers that traditional poppy and snappy camber, superior edge hold, and lightly responsive feel. It has awesome edge precision on carves and great turn-ability. Hard charging steep lines, speed stability on groomers to whipping through the trees and even solid float in pow. A truly versatile all mountain deck that does it all!”


  • Versatility: The Aeronaut is praised for its versatility, making it suitable for various riding styles and terrain. It performs well as an all-mountain freestyle board and also excels in powder.
  • Carving Performance: Reviewers highlight the Aeronaut’s exceptional carving abilities on high-speed groomers. It provides stability, speed, and impressive edge precision, allowing riders to confidently carve turns.
  • Responsive and Nimble: The board is described as responsive and nimble, offering a lively and enjoyable riding experience. This responsiveness contributes to its versatility across different terrains.



  • Not Overly Aggressive: Some riders may prefer a more aggressive board, and the Aeronaut is described as responsive but not overly aggressive. This could be a downside for those seeking an extremely high-performance or aggressive board.
  • Limited Park Features: Although the board can handle park features and spins off jumps, it may not offer the same level of performance as dedicated park-specific boards. Riders focused primarily on park riding might prefer boards specifically designed for that purpose.
  • Limited Powder Testing: While the board shows potential in powder based on speculation from reviewers, its actual performance in deep snow is yet to be fully tested. Riders who prioritize powder riding may seek out specialized powder boards for optimal performance.
