Testers' Ratings

This versatile freestyle board combines efficiency and ease thanks to very full presses. Its easily deformed flex does not prevent super ollies and stability.

We are always happy to rediscover the Defenders, a central versatile freestyle board from the Capita range. Once again, it is how quick it is to get to grips with that is immediately striking, with great ease and variety in presses. The center is balanced, pivotal, maneuverable, and progressive, with comfort as its primary intention. It maintains excellent contact with the terrain, which gives it good abilities to master all qualities of snow. When you accelerate and really get into it, you find welcome support and stability, at least if you remain attentive to what its extremities are doing. That's because the main personality of this Defenders lies in its active tips. They deliver a big ollie that is very easy to get but powerful, with a lot of control all the same. It combines all the qualities of a versatile freestyle board with good performance but with reactivity of the tips that surpasses all the other versatiles in its category.
