The future of snowboard manufacturing
The future of snowboard manufacturing has opened in Austria. Featuring some of the most advanced and unique machinery available, the Mothership from Capita produces some of the world's most advanced snowboards.
The factory itself is carbon-neutral, operates using hydro-power and uses ammonia as a heating source, and any off-cuts from the wood cores are treated and used as a heating source by locals.
Making it more rad, much of the technology has been developed in-house by Capita themselves, making the factory totally unique.
Along with Capita, the Mothership also manufactures boards for Bataleon and Lobster Snowboards.
Capita, Bataleon and Lobster 2017 models will be available in Boardertown stores in Auckland and Queenstown, and online shortly.
