Reviewer Alex

"Which board has the highest limits on every terrain? Push and enjoy it to the max everywhere. Adrenaline comes from sharp long carves till blinding amounts of fresh snow in the woods. All-mountain snowboards should be able to handle it all."

Supernova: powerful carve board


Capita Supernova (159) is one hell of a stiff quick carver. I tested the 159cm, next time I would take the 162cm for riding bigger lines. First thing you notice is the stiffness of the Supernova board. It is not forgiving and will stay on the line you choose, no matter what. This makes it a demanding snowboard. If you have the skills to master it, it is amazing. Without the necessary skills, the Supernova will not be easy to tame and I think you won't have a lot of fun with the Supernova. It is super fast and you should ride it aggresively. Then the Capita Supernova rewards you with fantastic carving and a nice rebound. Awesome board this Supernova, with focus on piste and less on off-piste.

No time to relax

The torsional stiffness is very high which makes that the limit of edge hold is very high as well. For taking advantage of the carving qualities a nicely groomed slope is fantastic of course. And with the interior power, the Supernova has no problem either with chopped up terrain or any fresh snow with a bottom. Once the powder gets bottomless, it is a lot harder and for that I would recommend more specific freeride powder snowboards. Once you hit a mogul track, you might wanna slow down a bit too. Without the flex for forgivingness it is impossible to go blind over them. It is a carving sensation for me, no time to relax. Go in aggressively or you'll get punched in the face, the Supernova demands no fear, fantastic snowboard.

Capita about Supernova

"The Supernova is super powerful. With a progressive sidecut that accelerates throughout the three stages of a turn and the predictable power of traditional camber, these boards flat-out charge. They can handle anything the mountain dishes out — with a price tag hundreds of dollars less than any comparable peer. The Supernova has undeniable all-mountain performance, and is the perfect deck for the confident, all-around rider, that’s not trying to break the bank.", says Capita. Yes, powerful it is. Go in aggressively!
