The Defenders Of Awesome snowboard has a huge reputation. It’s won the Transworld Good Wood award 7 years in a row!! No other snowboard has done that! 

But it’s not just awards, each year this snowboard is rightly one of the most sought after boards in the world. Its combination of versatile camber profile, mid flex, responsiveness and pop make it amazingly fun to ride all over the resort!

The Resort V1 Camber Profile offers the best of both worlds, combining a camber dominant shape in the middle of the snowboard with small zero camber sections just outside the bindings finishing with a touch of reverse camber. The profile means the snowboard has the predictability, edgehold, and pop of traditional camber but with the easy turn initiation of a zero camber snowboard. 

Adding in the Dual Blaster Ashpop Core adds to the feeling of stability underfoot and also provides the energy and pop that make it so playful and responsive. Stringers of dense Ash run the entire length of the snowboard, storing and releasing energy much faster than a standard core. So when you push into that camber you know the D.O.A is going to give back as good as it gets. 

For added durability in the park CAPiTA have added Fortress Kevlar Bound Sidewalls and to give even more pop there are Carbon Boosters running throughout the core. 

The Defenders Of Awesome is really versatile and that makes it so hard to beat. Not many snowboards feel this good from crispy morning groomers through to afternoon park laps and all the side hits in between. 

Super fun, responsive ride, and durable construction. That’s a pretty epic combination right there.

Tester’s Comment:

“It’s hard to think of a better all round snowboard for resort riding. It’s fun and easy to ride but never feels loose. Not great in powder but great fun on everything else and always leaves me smiling.”  James - Snowboard Test Team
