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.
FSC Certified Highland II Core - A newly developed screening process has allowed Arbor to hand-select the very lightest and highest quality Paulownia from their sourcing partners. The result is a lighter, more responsive version of the original Highland Core known for highly reliable return and long-lasting durability.
Mixed Glassing - A triax over biax layup that's best for versatility: pow, backcountry, groomers, jumps and more.
Sintered Base - A higher molecular weight, wax-infused sintered base that provides unmatched durability and speed.
360° Full Wrap Sidewalls - An advanced blend of ABS and urethane; deliver durability and a clean, acoustically damp ride.
Recycled Steel Edges - Built with hardened steel edges made using 60% recycled steel; provides maximum edge performance.
Hand Dyed Ash Power Ply - The variance of real ash wood grain creates a one of a kind look on each board made with this technology. Sustainably sourced structural ash wood delivers improved return, durability, and weight.
Entropy Bio Resin - The ingredients are sourced as co-products or waste products of other industrial processes and are manufactured employing green chemistry techniques that reduce the carbon footprint of the material by up to 40% (when compared to its petroleum-based equivalent).
Factory Tuned - Arbor detunes the tip and tail contact points on all snowboards for a catch-free ride before they leave the factory.
Wend Natural Wax - All Arbor Snowboards hit the shop floor ready to ride with Wend Natural Wax.
Arbor Sustainability - Arbor practices improving sustainable manufacturing. They work with FSC wood and bamboo materials, use solar power for 100% of their production line, focus on the most sustainable/recycled components and donate a portion of every sale to forest restoration projects.
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.
