The CAPiTA Black Snowboard of Death (B.S.O.D.) is in a category few other boards can match. As one of the upper echelon boards in the CAPiTA line, the B.S.O.D. is built with all the tech, design, and inspiration CAPiTA could throw into one package. Some won't care about all the tech in this board and that's fine, the B.S.O.D. is not for everyone, but this tech isn't just to be fancy. The tech is there to give the rider the best experience possible on the hill. The tech is there to make this one of the most capable snowboards in the most aggressive terrain. The tech is there for that rider looking for a board to match what they put into their riding and give it right back to them.
Though this board isn't for the mellow cruiser and definitely not for the beginner who thinks this board looks cool, that doesn't mean that the B.S.O.D. has to be pushed to the max every time your on it, but we do believe the B.S.O.D. is best suited for someone who knows what they are getting and what to do with it. We could continue to tell you how impressive the board is, but we think it's best to dive into the tech laid out below to understand all the B.S.O.D. has to offer. For those CAPiTA fans looking for a new Warpspeed you can stop searching. The big boy sizes of the Warpspeed have been absorbed into the Black Snowboard of Death, which is why here at Berg's we specialize in stocking those big boy sizes!

Directional shape is the classic snowboard shape, designed to be ridden with a slightly longer nose than tail to concentrate pop in the tail while providing plenty of float in powder. A softer nose allows for a smoother roll into your carve, while a stiffer waist and tail provides better control through the turn and a stronger finish.
Alpine V1 Camber
A combination of traditional camber, zero camber, and reverse camber. This profile design features mid-body camber with a flat tail and a reverse cambered nose. This allows for tons of pop and stability on hard pack while increasing float and landing power, improving the rider’s performance in deep snow. The camber runs longer in the tail—providing extra power and hold for ripping groomers.
New Age Progressive Death Grip™ Sidecut
A progressive sidecuts that incorporate a reverse sidecut arc in the midsection of the board. Due to a reduced effective edge as a result of hybrid camber shapes, this reverse camber arc provides a point of contact between the feet to retain control throughout the turn and is affectionately referred to as Death Grip™.
New! Hyperdirve™ ADV Base
Custom formulated and exclusive to The Mothership, the engineers have worked tirelessly with the world's leading polyethylene running base supplier to create HYPERDRIVETM. With exceptional anti-friction properties due to high molecular mass and specialized processing aids, this sintered material has a proprietary composition and is beyond fast. CAPiTA loyal fans charge hard, and we have integrated the fastest, meanest base available.
An aftermarket high-performance race-base structure that wicks water from your base in 45-degree angles making these boards lightning fast to the lift line or to the finish line.
Thermopolymer Hover Core™
Enhanced with bonded post-consumer recycled Thermopolymer channels into ultra-lightweight select grain wood core strips, the Thermopolymer HOVER Core™ is extremely light and strong with excellent dampening properties.
Holysheet™ Tri/Tri Fiberglass + Magic Bean™ Resin
Tri/Tri Holysheet™ has higher glass to weight ratio than normal fiberglass. Impregnated with high performance plant based Magic Bean Resin™ for the most powerful and dynamic ride. This adhesion process improves the factory’s working environment, as it does not contain some of the same harsh chemical characteristics used in resins at other factories around the world. This configuration uses an optimum blend of 626g/m2 Biaxial fiberglass laminated in conjunction with structural additives to customize performance objectives.
Carbon Fleece Power Shield™
With two Carbon Fleece power pads underfoot, maximum thrusting power is achieved for ollies and stability under varied-terrain while torsional forgiveness allows for ease of command while in battle.
Amplitex™ V-Tech Amplifier
Next-generation natural flax fiber woven with carbon strands. This fusion tape brings the best of two worlds: the reactive energy of carbon and the lightweight and dampening aspects of flax. The two fibers are highly compatible since they have similar properties regarding thermal expansion creating a uniformly flexing reinforcement that's light, snappy and durable all in one.
Skinless™ Core Ash Woodgrain Topsheet
Specially treated pure wood veneer topsheet with a unique tactile feel that is 220gm lighter than the standard process.
