capita flat kick tech.

anyone know how the flat kick (horrorscope fk, indoor fk) does on kickers? the tech is sweet for jibs but is it stable on landings. would it be able to handle spins on jumps around size 40 ft.
i just cant find some good info about it besides "its sick" and "its so fun"
how is it compared to the signal park series and the stairmaster.

its just fine for jumps. better than reverse camber in some ways. i demoed a capita with flat kick and you really dont notice much of a difference in hitting jumps, but it feels like more of a catch free ride.

as for the signal park series, i tried the park rocker and i wouldnt hit a jump again with it. the rocker is just out fucking rageous on that thing. stairmaster is a sick board all around. stiff enough for jumps soft enough for rails.

Flat kick is good for kickers. Since it flat between the feet and rocker after, you keep good stability since your main pressure points are right under your feet. But the raised tips keep it catch free and will let you get away with some sketch landings.

If you're still worried about the stability, look for the zero camber boards out there. Believer, Rook, Swindle, Hate...

well i was basically about to order the horrorscope, but then i second guessed it because i wasnt sure about the stability, but now that i hear what you guys are saying, it makes me feel a little safer getting it lol.

and the signal park rocker, that thing is ridiculous. i dont want that, i was talking about the park series, the camber version.
same thing with the stairmaster, i thought maybe camber would be better.

but if you say the flat kick doesnt take away any stability, then ill go with the horror cus it looks sick on rails.

Yeah I don't think I've actually heard any good things about the park rocker at all. Even as a jib board.

neither have i, signal just completely over did it.

as far as capita's flat kick tech, if the horrorscope wont hold me back on spins and booters, ill go with it. if it would be a bad choice, ill take the park series or stairmaster.
i really like the idea of the flat kick though so im hoping it will work for me.

well horrorscope should be ok on jumps, but it will not be ideal because it is a jib board. The fk doesn't really mean that much when it comes to jumps, its mostly that the horrorscope is soft, adding fk to it made it more noodle. I think it is good for jumps/all mountain/jib but it will be focused on jib, if you wanna stick with capita but want something thats less jib then check out the indoor survival, i would use it as my jib board but my feet are too big for a sub 156 size, but if you watch scott stevens in this vid YouTube - a few runs at mammoth hes hitting big jumps with it but he can still jib the shit out of it. again i think the horrorscope will be fine for jumps, but if your planning on going big, or want the board just for jumps then there are better choices

well i mean im not gonna be going like massive, anything from like 10 footers to 40 footers.
i just love how it looks for jibs, and i do love rails and boxes. as long as it can handle jumps im down for it, i was just a bit skeptical.
