If you’re not looking for the spotlight, you better steer clear of the 2016 Arbor Poparazzi because you’re gonna be bagging cover shots in no time after stepping foot on this board. The Poparazzi is a medium to soft flex, women’s specific rocker snowboard designed to take you anywhere on the mountain without taking a toll on your wallet. Parabolic reverse camber and Grip Tech make this board exceptionally easy to ride so that you can focus on improving the techniques that will allow you to progress to the next level.

Rocker Type Rocker Type

The System - True Rocker - The System is Arbor's rocker platform. Rocker is created by replacing the lengthwise positive arc of a traditional camber snowboard with a reverse shape similar to the profile of a surfboard. The design eliminates the leverage required to release and re-engage a camber snowboard's outside contact points, creating a more seamless ride. Rocker delivers easier turn initiation, cleaner tracking across the snow, better float in powder, and more fluid spins and slides.

Shape Shape

Mountain-Twin A shorter tail than nose gives this board a slightly setback feeling keeping the board on top of the snow and perfect starting point for progression.

Flex Rating Flex Rating

Medium Flex - Solid balance of responsiveness and flex for a dialed in park performing board while maintaining performance all over the mountain

Topsheet 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.

 

Raw timber must first be soaked so that it can be sliced or “veneered” into sheets, which are assembled into “faces,” then backed with a special fleece material, precision sanded, and pre-laminated to a protective foil, made in part from natural caster oil.
 
The finished topsheet is at last ready to be built into a snowboard. 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.

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.
