Watch the Exclusive Source On Snow Staff Review of the Capita 2016 Ultrafear
Nothing exists by itself.
Every thought or object is a link in an endless chain of links, extending to all places throughout all of time. This infinite chain of the universe has never been broken; it unites all objects into a single whole. We cannot move so much as our little finger without disturbing the entire universe. Waves of energy pass through this web of connectivity and our miniscule lives can be uplifted or crushed at any moment in time. When all is good, all is good. And when a negative disturbance exists in the field, all can be bad.
The highly sought after CAPiTA Ultrafear is a gateway to previously uncontrolled dynamics. Technical beyond belief, it is a magic wand of sorts. It is a tool that can channel positive or negative energy at the whim of its owner and project the power of the universe into an otherwise ordinary life.
The universe, its history and the future of mankind can now be in your hands. If you choose such responsibility, and obtain such power, what will the world become?
As a three-time Transworld Good Wood Award winner and star of endless video segments, no board is more dependable than CAPiTA’s team favorite, the ULTRAFEAR. You know what they say, if you want to stay in the winner’s circle, you gotta spend some time in the gym and that’s exactly what we did to beef up this already proven series. New for 2015, we’ve added a P2 Superlight Core™ with Kevlar/Titanal Body Armor™ in the shoulder areas – allowing your ULTRAFEAR to handle all the abuse you can throw at it. Also new for 2015 is a 1.5mm CORK dampening system, and an offset edge seam making this one of the toughest jib and park boards in the world.

The classic. Nothing is quite like the crispness, power and precision of camber at higher speeds. Ideal for aggressive riders and traditionalists.
The all-round performer. Far and away, this is our best-selling platform. Ultimate versatility comes from blending both rocker and camber traits to get a balance that offers both the stability of camber and the easy ride of rocker. Some boards in this category fall closer to a camber feel, while others ride a little looser like a rocker board. Find your balance and get a board here that does it all.
Flat from contact point to contact point for control and stability with a catch-free feel
Like waking up at noon on summer holiday. Rocker boards feature a reverse camber lay-up that is less-catchy, turns easier and sends the fun factor/high-five frequency into the stratosphere. These boards generally offer a more forgiving ride which is ideal for newer/casual riders, jibbing and easy style pow hounds alike.
ALL MOUNTAIN FREESTYLE
Do it ALL. Wanna grab some pow turns up top, scream down a mid-mountain groomer and then hit the park at the bottom? THESE are your boards. Our best-selling configuration. Generally an all-mountain twin-tip, directional twin or minimal directional shape that’s poised to do it all.
Tech freestyle supremacy. These twin tip boards generally feature a slightly softer flex and shorter contact points which make for boards that are slightly more maneuverable but still have the landing gear you need to grease park laps day-in and day-out. If park laps and hit runs are your jam, then this is where you live. If that last sentence didn’t make sense, it’s best not to look here.
Parks are where I walk my dog, the mountain is where I snowboard. Pow/Freeride boards quite often offer a distinct directional shape, featuring a tapering shape designed to provide the smoothest ride out on the mountain—whether it’s first chair on a pow day or late afternoon when it’s all bombed out. With options that range from resort freeride, slackcountry through to backcountry, the pow/freeride category is your go-to for riders not looking to ride the park and capitalize on the rest of the mountain.
Narrower widths mean lightning fast edge transfers and less fatigue for riders that have smaller feet. Suggested for all women’s sizes and Men’s 8.5 and below. Look for waist widths that are below 25cms.
Regular widths offer only critical measurements that will kill toe-heel drag, but also maintain proper response to keep turns quick and agile while not tiring you out. Ideal for rider with US Men’s 9-11.5 feet. Look for board widths that are 25-25.5 cm wide, going wider as foot sizes get bigger.
Anyone with a size 12+ boot can tell you—toe/heel drag sucks. Kill the culprit with a wider waist board and get the freedom to turn as hard as you want. Riders with 12+ boot sizes will want to look at boards with waist width of an absolute minimum of 25.6cm and go up from there—going wider as foot sizes get bigger.
