Ride around your local mountain resort, without emptying your wallet. The 2017 CAPiTA Space Metal Fantasy snowboard will appeal to intermediate riders who want to take their snowboarding craft to the next level. Last season this board received an award for offering the best value for money. In essence it’s the women’s version of the CAPiTA Horrorscope all the guys liked so much. Compared to previous season this board hasn’t changed much apart from a few minor tweaks.
Its design features a True Twin shape combined with a Flat to Rocker profile. The rockered section extends from under the bindings out to the tips, giving this board a loose, catch-free feel. Meanwhile the flat sections placed between the inserts provide stability. Its smooth, forgiving flex provides easy turn initiation. The extruded base is tougher and more durable than the standard ones. On snow, this board rides really stable with the typical flat to rocker personality. It turns quickly from edge to edge and offers a decent amount of speed. It does feel more at home at the park then on the mountain.
Most CAPiTA boards are light and snappy but this also means that they can sometimes feel unforgiving on harder snow. However the board’s soft flex does help with handling uneven terrain. Where this board really shines is jibbing. It’s one of the best women’s jib boards for sale today. Overall, the 2017 CAPiTA Space Metal Fantasy snowboard offers an enjoyable ride on the slopes and handles the park nicely.
