2016 CAPiTA Horrorscope Snowboard Review
Considering how many snowboards we test every spring, it’s amazing how many boards we agree on. Even though we always give boards a Shred Cred rating, our real goal is nail down what a board is good at. With the 2016 CAPiTA Horrorscope snowboard we agreed that it’s a park board, but didn’t necessarily agree on it’s exact discipline. Tyler likes it for jibs, Aiden for jumps, and Ajit for all around.
At first glance it might be easy to base the differences on rider weight, but Aiden is almost the same weight as Tyler and Ajit is 30 pounds heavier than than both of them. To analyze it further it probably boils down to weight and style.
Marketed as a Street/Urban snowboard, the Horrorscope has the wow-pow flat kick tips. We agreed that the flat kick makes for stable butters and presses. Plus it’s lifted enough for not catching while spinning on park features and can handle a little bit of pow.
Bottom line, we’d love to hear from you. Is the 2016 CAPiTA Horrorscope a jib, jump, or all around park board?
