Shape: Knucklehead Tip - Peak to parking lot with extra punch for powder.
Pow Tech - PowTech eliminates the front two GripTech contact points and moves the board's primary interface with the snow under your backfoot for pow-specific performance driven by the power of your back leg.
2cm Taper - A shaping technique that narrows the profile of the snowboard towards the rear contact points. Tapered snowboards will have a wider nose and narrower tail, allowing the tail of the board to sink in deeper snow creating natural float and cleaner tracking.
Core: FSC Certified Highland II Core - A newly developed screening process has allowed Arbor to hand select the very lightest and highest quality paulownia from its sourcing partners. The result is a lighter, more responsive version of the FSC Certified Highland Core known for highly reliable return and long-lasting durability.
Laminates: Mixed Glassing - A triax over biax lay-up that's best for versatility: pow, backcountry, groomers, jumps and more.
360 degree Rails - A 360 degree, fully wrapped sidewall that eliminates the need for tip fill, while effectively tying the whole snowboard together. A technology that delivers incredibly tight tolerances for improved board life and durability.
Recycled ABS - When a plastic alternative is unavailable, as in the case of ABS sidewalls, Arbor does its best to opt for a recycled material to improve the sustainability of its products.
Base: Sintered Base - A higher molecular weight, sintered base that provides added durability and speed.
Edges: Recycled Steel Edges - Arbor uses the most sustainable components possible. All edges are made from recycled steel. Highly durable, recycled steel edges embody both quality and sustainability.
Topsheet: Hand Dyed Ash Powerply - The Powerply works like an added layer of fiberglass. During construction, the natural wood or bamboo fibers are turned into a composite layer inside the board.Bio-Plastic Topsheet - One of the materials Arbor uses in its quest to eliminate harmful petroleum based plastics from its production cycle. Made from castor bean oil, this eco-topsheet is extremely durable and water repellent.
Bonus Features: Entropy Bio Resin - Starting with the 2020 line, Arbor is proud to announce that all Powerplys and R.A.P. Topless Tech veneers will be made with Entropy Bio-Resin, a replacement for traditional petroleum based resin that doesn't affect performance or usability. The ingredients that go into Entropy Bio-Resin 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.
Wend Natural Wax - All Arbor snowboards hit the shop floor ready to ride with Wend Natural Wax.
Factory Tuned - Arbor detunes the tip and tail contact points on all of its snowboards for a catch-free ride before they leave the factory.
