A technical dead ringer of the best-selling D.O.A. series, the Birds of a Feather offers all the performance of one of the most sought-after snowboards in the world replicated into flex patterns and geometric sizing to meet women's riding requests. This snowboard is so damn fun that the do-anything, go-anywhere Birds of a Feather is ready to change your riding forever.
With a medium flex that's easy to turn and an elongated effective edge ready to carve up the slopes, this hybrid-camber, all-terrain destroyer has inspired countless knockoffs chasing its success. Such emulation comes with the territory given that the Birds of a Feather has won every major design award in the industry. With an all-new Dual Blaster V2 Core™ and eight standard-width sizes to choose from, the Birds of a Feather now breaks down industry barriers with a Women's dedicated wide offering and is ready to take your snowboarding to new heights.
Shape: True Twin
Blended Radial Sidecut – Sidecut that features a single radius arc through the midsection of the board combined with a custom designed blend zone at the contact points. Varying the length of these blend zones and tailoring them specifically for certain aspects of riding greatly improves a board's performance.
The Dual Blaster V2 Core™ features internal Poplar strips fused with super light, high strength Paulownia wood featured in premium boards. With a stable and predictable feel underfoot, these lightweight cores provide the energy and reliability required for Capita's most in demand boards.
Laminates: Carbon Fiber Beams Increase power and response while remaining ultralight.
Special Blend Fiberglass + Magic Bean™ Resin – Custom weighted Biaxial top / Biaxial bottom = increased strength and durability. Impregnated with reformulated, high performance plant based Magic Bean™ Resin.
Sidewalls: Fortress™ Kevlar Bound Sidewalls – Heavy duty protection with refined flyweight Kevlar®.
Full ABS1000 Sidewalls
Base: Quantum Drive™ Base – Harder, stronger, faster, the Quantum Drive™ base is an updated sintered ultra-high molecular weight, ultra-high density polyethylene - Millenium Falcon of bases just got turbo charged.
Multitech™ Sublimation + Die-Cut Base – Sublimation is an exact science for an inexact process. In sublimation, ink is pushed through a substrate into base material using pressure and heat.
PLT Topsheet Technology™ – PLT™ technology is exclusive to CAPiTA MFG and magically bonds the topsheet to an already pressed snowboard. This is magical because the rest of the world mashes their topsheet on with glue, heat and pressure during the pressing stage. Doing so causes the fiberglass structure underneath to show through the topsheet. And because nobody wants to spend their hard earned cash on a bumpy snowboard, many companies slather their tops with a thick, toxic lacquer to smooth things out. Not only is that ish heavy and can potentially develop unsightly hairline cracks, it's also really unhealthy for the working environment. The PLT™ machine produces a featherlight, smooth, high-gloss finish, without all that poisonous deadweight.
Additional Features Made at the 100% Hydro Powered Mothership Facility – The NH3 natural gas heating system has an ODP (Ozone Depletion Potential) and GWP (Global Warming Potential) of 0, with a COP (coefficient of performance) of 5. This means that for every 1 unit of energy consumed by the system, 5 units of energy for heating and cooling is achieved. It's like making the effort to spin a 360, but landing a silky smooth 1800 instead. The Mothership is also designed to maximize the use of natural light during the day by having ample skylights and strategically placed interior cutaways throughout the entire facility -- while energy efficient LED lighting acts as supplementary illumination where necessary.
