The ride it all addiction of today’s all-mountain snowboarder is nicely contained with the 2016 Arbor Element, which was designed to deliver timeless style and high-end performance in the trees, steeps, powder, park, groomers, and well beyond.

Rocker Type Rocker Type

System Rocker - The System is a design platform that delivers a cleaner ride without forfeiting edge performance. The System improves both rocker and camber shapes, without hybridizing the two together, which we think sacrifices the inherent benefits of each. The System design eliminates the leverage required to release and re-engage a snowboard’s outside contact points, while creating a highly effective, more direct connection to the snow.

PARABOLIC PROFILING - The System utilizes rocker and camber profiles created using the parabolic arc, which progressively reduces the amount of rocker or camber toward the tip and tail of a snowboard, creating nice low profiles. On our System Rocker designs, this ensures that the outside contact points are close enough to the snow to engage when maximum performance is required – higher speeds, fully loaded turns, and bigger landings. On System Camber designs, this guarantees that the outside contact points do not dig too far into the snow, creating a cleaner, less catchy performance that makes it easier to turn, spin, and ride fast.

Shape Shape

Mountain Twin - Twin shape with a slightly set back stance to increase float. 

Flex Rating Flex Rating

Medium Flex - Gives you the ability to cover the whole range of terrain that the mountain has to offer, playlut and forgiving yet strong and snappy

Topsheet Topsheet

Premium Palisander Power Ply Topsheet

Almost all Arbor Snowboards are made with a sustainably sourced wood or Bamboo topsheet. We call this construction a Power Ply. The natural grain creates the style we’ve been known for since we launched twenty years ago. Less well recognized is how the technology improves the strength, durability, and return of our snowboards.
 
The Power Ply works like an added layer of fiberglass. During construction, the natural wood or bamboo fibers are turned into a composite layer inside the board; but the process takes time.

In the end, the process makes Arbor Power Ply deigns the most labor intensive snowboards on the market. The resulting performance, board life, and finish quality are worth the extra effort, in addition to the reduction in our reliance on man made glues, coatings, and composites.


Laminates Laminates

MIXED GLASSING - A triax over biax lay-up that’s best for versatility: pow, backcountry, groomers, jumps, & more.

Board Core Board Core

DOUBLE BARREL CORETwo Bamboo struts run tip-to-tail down the center of this upgraded Poplar core. Bamboo adds power and strength for bigger mountain performance.

Sidewalls Sidewalls

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.

Edges Edges

GRIP TECH - Grip Tech is a tri-radial sidecut design that is not “blended.” Natural shaping intersections, that in the past were eliminated, have been transformed into heel-and-toe contact points that provide a direct, more ergonomic way to grip the snow when additional control is needed. The extra contacts also form pivot zones that make turning easier and more natural. Grip Tech effectively moves a board’s primary interface with the snow underfoot, allowing us to deliver designs that don’t lose performance as we lift leading sections of the effective edge from the snow for a less grabby ride. Those designs include rocker, or camber with our new Uprise Fenders.
