CAPiTA Dustin Craven Custom Monster Snowboard
Board: CAPiTA Dustin Craven Custom Monster Snowboard 157 CM
Bindings: Flow FL-55 Bindings
So first of all, this board is a custom board sponsored by Monster Energy and manufactured by CAPiTA. This board can be won by entering in giveaways by Monster Energy.
Although rare, it does pop up in Classifieds. I for one decided to pull the trigger and purchase one of these boards.
Board Profile: Regular Camber more mellow (lower) than most regular cambers on the market.
Size: 157 CM
Base: Unknown, very porous and fast so I would assume it is Sintered.
Stiffness: I would rate this as 8/10. Comparing this with my RIDE HELIX it does feel slightly more stiff upon bending.
Board Tech: Unknown, only board that CAPiTA Manufactures that has the same measurements and profile seems to be the CAPiTA Supernova
Durability: So far it seems the topsheet art tears very easily.
Powder: Struggles with powder, takes a bit to fight against the stiffness in order to keep the nose up. 2.5/5
Speed: This thing is an absolute bomber downhills. Very stable at highspeeds with very little chattering. 4/5
Carving: When entering carves at high speeds the energy the board gives off is immense. Rips through turns like a monster. Very little chattering at high speeds. 4/5
Edge Hold: The edge hold of this board is great when riding aggresively. 4/5
Jumps: Have not tried yet
Overall I would recommend this board if you can manage to snatch one up at a cheap price. Monster labels the MSRP to be 750 CAD but at that price point there are many other boards worth looking out for that have tech that overshadow the Craven custom. This board fits an aggressive rider mostly looking to bomb down hills and rip through turns and carves.
