Checking out the 18/19 Capita Outsiders snowboard at Mt. Hood, Oregon. We were out riding for an entire week and had some great, variable spring conditions. In the early mornings we had decently firm groomers for carving, with the snow getting progressively more and more slushy throughout the day making for some fun park laps. The Outsiders is a Freestyle board at heart but performs well around the entire mountain. It has a medium stiff flex that I would rate around 6/10 and is more of a jump board when it comes to park riding. You can still have a lot of fun on rails though, you just wont be able to get those exaggerated presses; you will be able to slide outside the bindings without the board flexing out on you thanks to that stiffer flex though. This board is lightweight and maneuverable, and thrives in the park and sending natural features. I was also very impressed with how much speed the sintered base offered on this slow, slushy snow. Let us know any questions you have in the comments below. Thanks for watching.
Resort Profile – The Resort camber configuration zeros out a traditional camber approach 4cm before the end of the sidecut. The small zero camber sections provide a more controlled ride while retaining the response and power of a cambered board.
6 – 1 Soft – 10 Stiff
Radial Sidecut – A single radius design that allows your board to start and finish a turn on the same arc.
Canadian Maple Dual Core™ – Features internal Poplar strips fused with more dense and powerful Maple through the insert area and along the rails. In addition to its performance properties, this core smells like maple syrup and the fresh outdoors, hails from Canada, and rips like crazy despite being incredibly polite.
Carbon Fiber Beams – Increases power and response while remaining ultralight.
Holysheet™ Fiberglass with Magic Bean Resin – Triax/ Biax Holysheet™ has higher glass to weight ratio than normal fiberglass for a more powerful and dynamic ride when impregnated with the new high performance plant based Magic Bean™ Resin.
Full ABS1000 Sidewalls
Superdrive™ Base – Targeted toward versatility in a high-end sintered base, this running material strikes a unique and sought after balance between high performance and low maintenance. With an increased density polyethylene, these ultra high molecular weight sintered bases are more wax absorbent and allow longer time periods between waxing sessions. Properly maintained sintered bases are fast, durable, and are the preferred choice of pro snowboarders worldwide.
Multitech™ Sublimation + Die-Cut Base – Sublimation is an exact science for an inexact process. In sublimation, ink is pushed through a substrate into base material using pressure and heat.
Titanal Base Inlay – Titanal is a high strength hardened aluminum wrought alloy with excellent compression strength to weight ratios. A perfect top core structural reinforcement, these 20mm Titanal struts resist longitudinal compression.
360 Degree HRC48 Steel Edges
Multitech™ Level 4 DeepSpace™ Silkscreen + PAM16000™ Topsheet with Metallic Underlay – Strategically layering ink on multiple levels from the top and the bottom, CAPiTA imbues their graphics with a sense of life through depth.
PLT Topsheet Technology™ – PLT™ technology is exclusive to CAPiTA MFG and magically bonds the topsheet to an already pressed snowboard. This is magical because the rest of the world mashes their topsheet on with glue, heat and pressure during the pressing stage. Doing so causes the fiberglass structure underneath to show through the topsheet. And because nobody wants to spend their hard earned cash on a bumpy snowboard, many companies slather their tops with a thick, toxic lacquer to smooth things out. Not only is that ish heavy and can potentially develop unsightly hairline cracks, it’s also really unhealthy for the working environment. The PLT™ machine produces a featherlight, smooth, high-gloss finish, without all that poisonous deadweight.
Made at the Mothership (100% Hydro Powered Facility) – The NH3 natural gas heating system has an ODP (Ozone Depletion Potential) and GWP (Global Warming Potential) of 0, with a COP (coefficient of performance) of 5. This means that for every 1 unit of energy consumed by the system, 5 units of energy for heating and cooling is achieved. It’s like making the effort to spin a 360, but landing a silky smooth 1800 instead. The Mothership is also designed to maximize the use of natural light during the day by having ample skylights and strategically placed interior cutaways throughout the entire facility — while energy efficient LED lighting acts as supplementary illumination where necessary.
Stainless Steel 4×2 Inserts
- Warranty: 2 Years
- Binding Mount Pattern: 2×4
- Core/Laminates: Carbon, Metal, Wood
- Rocker Type: Flat/Camber/Flat
Flat/Camber/Flat This profile is very similar to full camber, except that it has a mellower flat area from the bindings out. This will make it more forgiving and easier to do some tricks in the park.
- Shape: True Twin
- Terrain: Freestyle
FreestyleFreestyle or park snowboards tend to be a bit shorter in length and love terrain parks, rails, jibs, trash cans, tree trunks, riding switch (non-dominant foot forward), wall rides and more. Freestyle boards often feature a true twin shape, and are typically selected by those looking to ride the terrain park. A more versatile variant of a freestyle board is the all-mountain freestyle, which combines the versatility of an all mountain snowboard with the playfulness of a freestyle snowboard.

- Ability Level: Intermediate-Advanced
Intermediate-Advanced Whether you’re a progressing intermediate exploring new runs and terrain, or an accomplished rider seeking new thrills, the majority of skiers and snowboarders fall into this level. Intermediate to advanced skis and snowboards may be somewhat wider or stiffer than beginner-intermediate skis and snowboards, usually with a stronger wood core and sandwich sidewall construction. Intermediate to advanced boots and bindings range from softer flexing freestyle options to stiffer choices built for stability at speed.
