The Element Black is a versatile board that is great for intermediate level riders looking to progress their skills across the whole mountain. With a medium flex and predictable rocker profile, this board provides the perfect blend of float and stability. A lightweight and sustainable Single Malt Core provides consistent snap and pop for side hits and park jumps alike. Features like 360° Full Wrap Sidewalls and an extruded base provide increased durability for season-long dependability. If you're looking for an all-mountain board that can handle anything from backcountry lines to park laps, the Arbor Element Black is for you.
The System: Parabolic Rocker - A "true-rocker" design based on the parabolic arc; a shape that allows arbor to gradually reduce the amount of rocker toward the tip and tail. This ensures that the outside contact points are close enough to the snow to reengage when maximum edge control is needed: loaded turns, higher speeds, and bigger landings. Arbor's parabolic rocker provides an additional layer of on demand edge control without having to sacrifice any true rocker performance.
Grip-Tech Sidecut - A sidecut design that creates four additional contact points under foot for significantly improved, more direct edge control. The new contacts also create heel and toe pivot points that make turning faster and more efficient. Grip-Tech enables Arbor to offer a "True-Rocker" profile with powerful edge control, and thus preserve the full range of associated performance benefits. Grip-Tech also allows riders with larger feet (up to US men's 12) to ride standard width shapes.
3 Year Warranty - Covered under manufacturer warranty for 3 years from the time of purchase! Warranty includes structural defects only and DOES NOT cover impact damage, abuse, misuse or normal wear and tear expected from aggressive riding.
Sorry folks, but bashing your board on a rock or rail does not qualify as a "manufacturer's defect" and will not be honored.
Single Malt Core - Arbor's standard wood core for highly reliable return and lasting durability. Made from 100% sustainably grown poplar wood.
Biax/Triax Glassing - A biax over triax lay-up that's designed for fun all mountain cruising, great to learn on.
Extruded Base - A tough, user-friendly extruded base that's light and easy to repair.
Knucklehead Tip Profile - Peak to parking lot with extra punch for powder
360° Full Wrap Sidewalls - An advanced blend of ABS and urethane; deliver durability and a clean, acoustically damp ride.
Power Ply Wood Topsheet - Produced using a range of sustainably sourced, natural wood veneers. The variance of real wood grain creates a one of a kind look on each board made with this technology. Sustainably sourced structural wood delivers improved return, durability, and weight.
