From Capita, we have the Mid Life Crisis. This snowboard is pretty sick. It’s actually designed by TJ Schneider. Have you ever seen that guy rip? You should go watch him ride, he’s a sick rider. But it’s a little bit wider of a board. I don’t know if he’s got big feet or whatever, but… this actually has a waist width of a 25. Has a centered stance and yes it is a true trim. The core is called DS SELECT, so it has a poplar wood core from tip to tail, and then on the rails is has beachwood, so if you’re trying to hold an edge through some choppy terrain, the beachwood’s that is going to damper those vibrations a little bit better than a traditional plain wood core. The glass is called Custom Weave E-class glass. That means that there is two different directions of fiberglass on the top of the core, and three different directions of fiberglass on the bottom of the core. The Capita Mid Life Crisis also has Kevlar and Corbin fiber inserts that run basically from where your bindings sit on both sides of your rails as well. The base is called a wax-infused rotational centered base. That means that this thing is fast, that means it’s going to absorb wax and hold on to wax a little bit longer than an extruded base. The flex is a little bit stiffer than average. It’s a 6 out of a 1-to-10 rating. I actually rode this season with this board, and I actually dug it. I really did. The nose and tail have really unique shapes, cool graphic, great deck, great tot cuts. This is the Capita Mid Life Crisis. Thanks TJ for making such a rad board.
