With legendary status as an all-terrain slayer and too many accolades to name, The Black Snowboard of Death has been continually morphed and modified in pursuit of perfection. The only element that has remained the same over the years is the name itself. For 2021, this icon of CAPiTA's history has been upgraded again with a new FC Hover Core™ featuring Forged Carbon Rods integrated under the core. This placement shifts compression and expansion properties to yield increased response furthering the anytime, anyplace, all-mountain design mantra which made it famous from the beginning. The contemporary The Black Snowboard of Death features a slightly wider frame with tighter side cut arcs and Death Grip™, a reverse sidecut arc in the midsection that enables the shape to whip into quick turns. With a well-balanced directional shape and high-powered construction, this custom-designed rocket ship allows for incredible control—making you a better snowboarder in variable terrain and changing conditions.
The ALPINE V1 Profile design features mid-body camber with a flat tail and a reverse cambered nose. This allows for tons of pop and stability on hard pack while increasing float and landing power, improving the rider’s performance in deep snow. The camber runs longer in the tail—providing extra power for the ascent or for larger riders drawn to a dedicated wide series.
Enhanced with Forged Carbon rods integrated beneath its core, the FC HOVER Core is extremely light and strong with excellent dampening properties.
For enhanced strength and vibration dampening underfoot.
Grid woven tech tape featuring the response of carbon with the dampness of flax.
Triax/Triax HOLYSHEET™ has higher glass to weight ratio than normal fiberglass.
Impregnated with high performance plant based MAGIC BEAN™ RESIN for the most powerful and dynamic ride.
Exclusively formulated, sintered, ultra-high molecular weight, ultra-high density polyethylene, custom engineered with special additives. Rated for the most depraved speed junkies ONLY.
Aftermarket performance stone grind structure straight from The Mothership.

i cant get enough of this thing. One snowboard for everything! All hail the Black Snowboard of Death.
Perfect, I love it.
This board is the board of all boards i just got back home first day riding it. I only hit groomed runs today which i rarely ever do because they aren‚Äôt very fun, this snowboard makes them fun I didnt know it was possible to even go that fast on a snowboard (96km/hr my app told me i got up to) and i wasnt even scared this thing shreds like nothing else holds an edge in anything no chatter no vibrations so stable i felt invincible. i went from being an average snowboarder to putting this on i instantly felt like a pro. i was hitting jumps being off balance right before the jump and then flailing in the air like silly salmon 100% knowing i was going to eat it when i landed, but every time i somehow nailed the landing this snowboard is witchcraft, This mf is the nimbus 3000 i was hitting jumps ive always hit and getting twice the air i usually get with a way better landing, all before lunch!! on my first day with the board!! I wasn‚Äôt afraid of catching an edge once the couple times i almost did the board saved me using it magicalness. Ill give an update when i try it on a powder day will probably set the bindings all the way to the back for maximum relaxation sensation!!
Typically, at the beginning of each season, it took me 3-4 days on the mountain to get back to where I was at, in the previous season. Not with this board. It took about 200 yards and I was right there. I don't think I've ever been passed by anyone (on a snowboard) while riding this board, and there are a lot of good riders here in Tahoe. It's that fast. With quality responsive toe-cap bindings, this deck is a Porsche firing on all cylinders -- it's badass. If you're and advanced (or reasonable expert) rider, and love to go fast and progress in your technical skills, stop shopping around and get this board.
Over the past year, the EETT™ development team at MARS1 has been working to connect you to your board beyond the standard boot/binding interface.
By embedding a super-intelligent Near Field Communication (NFC) chip into the nose of your board, you can now connect your phone to your board for seamless product information, snowboard registration, warranty processing and more.
