2014 Capita Defenders of Awesome DOA vs 2013
 
Basically, tossing up between the 12/13 and 13/14 DOA's.

It it worth waiting for the new seasons boards to come out?
The 14's have now got a sintered base and full length carbon 'load bars'.

CAPiTA 2013-2014

Yewwww!

Rumor has it that before it started killing mountains, it actually had slayed a few small hills and a halfpipe....

I ride mine as my all mountain board and love it. Steeps, trees, groomers, park, pow I have ridden it every where and been happy with it. Though today we got 30cm of fresh and took my Charlie!

For the record this years also has full length carbon load bars. The only thing changing next year is the sintered base. I love mine, perfect all mountain board, I prefer camber to rocker and this is and excellent camber profile.

The extruded base on this board is actually pretty fast, haven't had any issues hold speed in flat areas, and trust me on Mt. Hood there are quite a few.

May come down to price and graphics for you, you could find one of this years cheap. Also you more into Metal chicks or chicks in bathing suits with guns?

Well, I've been demoing the 2014 the past two weeks and I LOVE it. By all means my favourite board I've ever ridden. I know that i'm going to buy the 2013 cheap for the rest of the season/summer riding in hood/whistler. Then I will buy the 2014 for next year. If you've got the funds why not both? Maybe buy the 2013 a bit longer so you could bring it out for pow days next year? Sure it's not a pow board but hey, whatever.

I guess with Elan going bankrupt I'd have to say 2014. They are the biggest brand to not have left as far as I've heard. Meaning if Elan wants to keep the snowboard side alive they need their biggest account to be perfect. Also it seems as though Capita has stepped up material quality for everything for next year. Something that also falls in line with Elan trying to save it's snowboard factory.

On the other hand if shit REALLY hits the fan then Capita might be in trouble as everyone else has already moved to GST that can. So if Elan dies completely Capita will likely have to go to China.

Rad board either way, one of the better Capita's I've ridden.
