Notable Features

  • Red Gum/Palisander/Black dyed Ash Powerply
  • Highland II Core - A newly developed screening process has allowed us to hand-select the very lightest and highest quality Paulownia from our sourcing partners. The result is a lighter, more responsive version of our Highland Core known for highly reliable return and long-lasting durability.
  • Sintered+ Base - An advanced process creating the highest density base material and fastest base that Arbor offers.
  • Mixed Glassing - A triax over biax lay-up that’s best for versatility: pow, backcountry, groomers, jumps, & more.
  • 2x4 14-Pack Inserts - Provide a wide stance range, while at the same time delivering critical micro adjustability.
  • .87 cm Tapered Tail – A shaping technique that narrows the profile of the snowboard towards the near contact points. Tapered snowboard 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
  • Grip Tech – Grip Tech creates added heel and toe contact points that dramatically improve edge control on snow and ice. The design creates a more ergonomic and direct connection to the snow for substantially improved handling and response time. The added contact points make it possible for Arbor to offer Rocker designs that hold an amazing edge, and Camber designs that provide cleaner edge performance.
  • Uprise Fenders – 3 degrees, Deep Snow Performance, Maximum Float
  • RWD Carbon A-Frame Board Reinforcement - Diagonal carbon fiber inserts running diagonally from underneath your back foot to the outside contact point increase snap and rebound under your dominant back foot for powerful drive and power transfer.
  • 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 Steel Edges – Our highly durable, recycled steel edges embody two of our Arbor’s key values: Quality and Sustainability.
  • Bio Resin – Starting with our 2020 line we are proud to announce that all Powerplys and R.A.P. Topless Tech veneers will be made with 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).
  • Three Year Warranty – We stand behind the quality and construction of every Arbor Snowboard with an extended 3-year warranty. Find more information on our warranty policy.
  • Wend Natural Wax – All Arbor Snowboards hit the shop floor ready to ride with Wend Natural Wax.
  • Factory Tuned– We detune the tip and tail contact points on all of our snowboards for a catch-free ride before they leave the factory.
  • Zero Waste Base Technology – All of our die-cut bases feature our Zero Waste Base technology, and come in 2 interchangeable colorways. This process is essential to reducing our carbon footprint and eliminating waste during the manufacturing process.
  • Recycled ABS – When a plastic alternative is unavailable, as in the case of ABS sidewalls, we do our best to opt for a recycled material to improve the sustainability of our products.
