I tried Space Metal but never B-Street btx. So which board you think is better? I am considering buying one between this two. Space Metal seems cheaper. Do you think B-street is worth of the higher price? thanks!
They are both classified as soft park boards, but they excel in different areas for sure. Because I am very light and have tiny feet, the B-street actually feels a bit stiff to me, so it works as an all-mountain freeride board and the Capita is a my mess around board.
I would recommend the B-street if you are on the East Coast because of the magnetraction. It also has a faster, sintered base, has more pop, and floats better in powder. I also love the graphics.
The Space Metal is a very fun board too. It is easier to butter and jib, but I didn't think the edge hold was as solid. I have heard conflicting reports about Capita's build quality, but unless you are a 60-day a year rider, you won't notice that it's "cheaper" (with the exception of the extruded base). The graphics look a lot nicer in person.
I have taken both in the trees and in canyons and I felt like they were both nimble and light, although some people do complain that the Capita has a slower edge-to-edge transition.
Overall, both are extremely fun boards. It really depends on your personal preferences.
If you are torn and cannot decide between the two, go with the Space Metal, since it's cheaper. Can't really go wrong either way! : )
