A women’s specific all-mountain snowboard, the 2016 Arbor Swoon is built on a mountain-twin shape with a medium flex. Responsive pop and powerful edge control make the Swoon the perfect board for women who don’t let ski area boundaries limit their riding. More responsive than the Cadence, The Swoon offers increased stability at higher speeds for the more advanced rider. We have expanded the Swoon offering to include both System Rocker and System Camber versions.
Built with Arbors amazing wood construction top sheet and featuring the System Rocker the all new 2016 Swoon snowboard is sure to be a hit. Easily capable to attack the most advanced parts of the mountain, but more than ready to be that board to help teach you the ropes as you take down your first run
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.
Thunderhead Tip / Tail
Big-mountain versatility &
speed in the deepest snow.
Mountain Twin - A very slightly longe nose to this board helps keep the board on top of the snow and perfect starting point for progression.
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
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.
Bamboo Power Ply Topsheet - Structural and performance-enhancing. A protective film laminated to the bamboo power ply tops contains 30% bio-plastic and eliminates the need for toxic clear coats
MIXED GLASSING - A triax over biax lay-up that’s best for versatility: pow, backcountry, groomers, jumps, & more.
SINGLE MALT CORE - Our standard wood core for highly reliable return and lasting durability. Made from 100% sustainably grown Poplar wood.
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.
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.
