Inspired by the legacy of the Black Snowboard of Death, yet custom designed for an unmatched ultralight and powerful performing ride, we present the MEGA DEATH—a high-end, high-tech freeride machine unlike anything else. Fully loaded with construction technology and design philosophy developed at the world’s most advanced manufacturing facility, THE CAPiTA MOTHERSHIP, this featherlight construction comes from an FSC® Certified Thermopolymer Starship Core™ and PURE MEGACARBON™ layup. This show-stopper aligns with the Black Snowboard of Death’s all-mountain freeride design mantra while being propelled by a high-speed MEGADRIVE™ base with a factory-direct Moonshot Omni Tune™. The 2024 Mega Death is quite simply the board that everyone wants, but not everyone will get to have. A truly versatile, high-performance freeride machine—ready to charge anything you dare point down.
ALPINE V1 PROFILE – 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.
- DEATH GRIP™ - Death Grip™ is a design theory that incorporates a reverse sidecut arc in the midsection of the board. This reverse camber arc provides a point of contact to apply pressure and retain control throughout the turn in both freestyle and freeride settings.
- FSC® CERTIFIED 3D THERMOPOLYMER STARSHIP CORE™ - Utilizing an advanced electronic sorting system allows Capita to select mega-premium, reforestation certified, Poplar graded by weight and grain consistency. Comparable to Paulownia in strength to weight ratio, this core retains the poppiness of Poplar, and then achieves a signature feel by adding bonded post-consumer recycled Thermopolymer channels to form an advanced hybrid core. This mega-premium core will blast you into space and beyond.
- MEGACARBON™ ARRAY - Mega-wide carbon tape on both top and bottom of the woodcore = four times the power and response of previous carbon additives.
- CARBON FLEECE POWER SHIELD™ - With two Carbon Fleece power pads underfoot, maximum thrusting power is achieved for ollies and stability under varied-terrain while torsional forgiveness allows for ease of command in battle.
- SIDEWALLS - Full ABS1000 Sidewalls
- MEGADRIVE™ BASE - Striving to kit out the MEGA line-up with the most advanced and premium components, the all new Megadrive™ base is as fast as science can make it. This is a pure race base composed of HMW polyethylene modified with high carbon content and special fluoro additives for lightspeed gliding in a wide range of conditions.
- MOONSHOT OMNI-TUNE™ - Aftermarket performance stone grind structure straight from The Mothership, optimized for regular and switch riding.
- INLAID ALLOW SKID PLATES - Reinforced with an ultralight skid plate, refined and reshaped to shave weight.
