Scott Stevens Pro

Professional / Radial / True Twin
Sizes: 151, 153, 155, 157
Rider Type: Park and jib
Flex: 5
Camber: Park V2 Profile
These versatile boards feature a dual reverse camber Flat Kick freestyle shape. A zero camber section throughout the insert area provides a stable skate-style feel, while elevated contact points turn on a dime and float effortlessly in powder.

With a shape that turns on a dime, this board is made to jib, bonk, slide, shred, ride, slap and pop off of anything. Known for a damp feel and durable ride, the Scott Stevens Pro is a coveted board for creative riders looking for a more traditional twin tip shape in an advanced construction. Despite an already time tested and proven lay-up, Mr. Sleepy requested even more snap and ollie power in this year’s model. Of course, we delivered. For 2020, the new technical elements feature a recalibrated in-laid cork and wood core configuration alongside Technora™ ˜ Flax Struts to increase overall energy output.

Often imitated but never duplicated, Scott Steven’s riding and personal style are without compare. As a master innovator and industry leader in new tricks, he has set himself apart in the snowboarding game. This extremely durable, versatile, twin-tip park destroyer is what Scott uses to get wild.

The Black Snowboard of Death

Men’s / Progressive / Directional / 0.5” Set Back
Sizes: 156, 159, 162, 161W, 165W, 169W
Rider Type: All-mountain and powder
Flex: 6.5
Camber: 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.

Behold The 20th Anniversary Black Snowboard of Death.
TWENTY years, wow. It feels just like yesterday we die-cut the OG Merchant of Death Skull into a progressive, directional all-black silhouette and left the tracks on this runaway train called CAPiTA.

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. The only element that has remained the same over the years is the name itself. For 2020, this CAPiTA classic has been completely reshaped within its anytime, anyplace, all-mountain design mantra, which made it famous from the beginning.

This adaptation 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-de-signed rocket ship allows for incredible control—making you a better snowboarder in variable terrain and changing conditions.
