Review

What is paradise? For some snowboarder its lapping deep powder for others its tackling a mountain’s most steepest parts. The 2017 CAPiTA Paradise Falls snowboard will help you to find that paradise. This CAPiTA women’s board is build to deliver a proper freestyle touch to your all-mountain adventures. In essence this board is the ladies equivalent of the men’s CAPiTA Outerspace Living.

This board’s design features a True Twin shape with a Hybrid Camber profile. The rocker section that extends past the inserts makes this board feel loose enough for playing around on the rails. While also enabling the board to float well on fresh snow. The camber that runs from insert to insert gives this board the power and pop needed to handle variable terrain and sending jumps. Lightweight metal struts placed outside the inserts not only enhance the board’s response but also adds strength. On snow, this board rides stable, forgiving and catch-free. Wether you are riding regular or switch this board goes quickly from edge to edge. With a good spring out of the turn.

This board picks up speed nicely and planes well on powder. Although we think that a bit more rocker can make this board float even better on deep fresh snow. On rougher terrain this board remained comfortable and controllable. Overall, the 2017 CAPiTA Paradise Falls snowboard offers a proper all-mountain ride with a freestyle-oriented feel. It’s forgiving when you want it to be and more sturdy when the circumstances ask for it. The board is finished of with a really nice top-sheet design.
