$491.00

THIS ONE'S FOR THE LEGENDS OF GNAR

The Defenders of Awesome series has a big name, and these boards live up to it. A winner of the most prestigious design award in snowboarding for an amazing seven years in a row, this model became our #1 selling snowboard and one of the most desired snowboards in the world. The D.O.A. features a next-generation hybrid camber design that delivers the pop and response of a cambered board with the stability of reverse camber and is now available in an extended range of wide sizes.

The P2 Superlight Core™ reduces weight while providing high-impact resistance and maximum pop. With additional construction technology like Fortress™ Aramid Bound Sidewalls and a high-speed Quantum Drive™ base elevating these boards beyond their modest retail price, the D.O.A. series stands proud as the ultimate all-around, versatile freestyle deck.

Product Details

Rocker Type

Resort V1 Profile  RESORT V1 Profile boards take full advantage of the benefits of traditional camber, zero camber, and reverse camber. This next generation design allows you to get the pop and response of a cambered board with all the predictability and easy turn initiation of zero camber or reverse camber shapes.

Flex

Twin Flex

Flex Rating  5.5 (1 Soft - 10 Stiff)

Shape

Twin Shape

Blended Radial Sidecut  BLENDED RADIAL sidecuts feature a single radius arc through the midsection of the board combined with a custom designed blend zone at the contact points. Varying the length of these blend zones and tailoring them specifically for certain aspects of riding greatly improves a board’s performance.

Core

FSC Certified P2 Superlight Core™  The P2 SUPERLIGHT CORE™ is an extremely lightweight core engineered to withstand high impact and deliver maximum pop. Comprised of an even mix of Poplar and Paulownia wood, the P2 is FSC® Certified and ready to dominate in any environment.

Laminates

Carbon Fiber Boosters  Increases power and response while remaining ultralight.

Magic Bean Resin  This advanced resin system has a bio-content of 60% renewable, agricultural raw material and is produced with no waste or greenhouse emissions. In production, it has a low-temperature requirement with a high yield output. Poppy, powerful, and extremely durable, MAGIC BEAN™ resin yields much stronger and more rigid qualities allowing a decrease in the wood core thickness. This means you get a lighter board while achieving higher energy return.

Special Blend Fiberglass  This configuration uses an optimum blend of 626g/m2 Biaxial fiberglass laminated in conjunction with structural additives to customize performance objectives.

Sidewalls

Fortress™ Kevlar Bound Sidewalls  With seven Transworld Good Wood Awards in six years for the D.O.A. series, it’s clear that the performance and value of these boards are unmatched. FORTRESS™ KEVLAR BOUND SIDEWALLS are bonded by a Kevlar “S” wrap from the top of the sidewall to the underside of the core. This lightweight technology binds the sidewall and core material together like no other.

Full ABS1000 Sidewalls

Base

Quantum Drive™ Base  The QUANTUM DRIVE™ running base is formulated with a progressive blend of compressed ultra-high-molecular-weight polyethylene. As an evolution from the already blazing fast ULTRADRIVE™, this running base features higher density for durability and absorbs more wax to wick longer and ride faster. Properly maintained sintered bases are fast, durable, and are the preferred choice of many high-end enthusiasts worldwide.

Edges

360˚ HRC48 Steel Edges

Topsheet

PAM16000™ Topsheet with Metallic Underlay

PLT™ Topsheet Technology  PLT™ technology is exclusive to CAPiTA MFG and magically bonds the topsheet to an already pressed snowboard.

Graphics

Multitech™ Level 5 DeepSpace™ Silkscreen  The DEEPSPACE™ Design Theory takes advantage of the thickness of a transparent topsheet. Strategically layering ink on multiple levels from the top and the bottom imbues graphics with a sense of life through depth.
