Reigning as Transworld Snowboarding's 2013 Women's Rider of the Year, Jess Kimura shreds everything with gusto, originality, and silky-smooth style. She needs a board that not only stands up to serious abuse, but one that is confident grinding street rails, destroying park jumps, and floating through deep powder, like the Capita Women's Jess Kimura Pro Model Snowboard. A true twin shape and Hybrid FK profile make this board a true quiver-killer, leaving your other boards collecting dust at home.
The Hybrid FK profile features camber throughout the board's mid-section, extending five centimeters past the inserts. This provides the pop, edge-hold, and response of a traditional cambered board. Beyond the cambered section, a large area of flat camber transitions into a small rockered zone, before blending into the nose and tail kicks. This combination of flat camber and rocker provides a stable landing zone, easy turn initiation, and increased float in powder.
On the inside of this board, you'll find a RFC Sustainable core, featuring full tip-to-tail poplar wood. This provides a smooth and uniform flex throughout, as there aren't any joints or knots to compromise durability and flex. Made with Special Blend Evo Tech fiberglass, this board has a biaxial fiberglass layup with structural additives for increased performance. Two carbon fiber beams run the length of the board, up until the contact points at the tip and tail. Lightweight carbon fiber reinforcement adds snap, response, and lively flex. Providing you with the necessary speed to clear jumps and flat run-outs, a Wax Infused Rotation sintered base is extremely durable and fast.
