The System Technology

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.

 

 

The System Camber Design


The System Camber design offers a poppy ride, with crisp, fully engaged performance.
 

 

 

The System Rocker Design


The System Rocker design provides a surfy ride, with natural float and cleaner tracking.

 

 

 

 

 

 

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. Uprise Fenders pull the outside contact zones off the snow with angled 3o risers on all System Camber designs.
 

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.
 

Tip Profiles
How a board approaches terrain is critical, so a huge effort goes into our tip profiles. We match board shapes with these profiles in order to create designs for specific terrain and riding styles.
 

Snowboard Materials 
Every Arbor snowboard is made with a full-length, sustainably produced wood core. Each core is custom built and CNC shaped for a specific model and size. The extra effort helps guarantee the tolerance, flex, and finish quality of every Arbor snowboard released.

Single Malt:
Our standard wood core for highly reliable return and lasting durability. Made from 100% sustainably grown Poplar wood.

Double Barrel:
Two Bamboo struts run tip-to-tail down the center of this upgraded Poplar core. Bamboo adds power and strength for bigger mountain performance.

Highland:
Our highest-end core, made from a blend of estate grown Poplar and Paulownia to provide the light-weight performance ideal for backcountry and pow.

2×4 14-Pack Inserts:
Provide a wide stance range, while at the same time delivering critical micro adjustability.

Base Material:
EXTRUDED BASE: A tough, user- friendly extruded base that delivers lighter-weight performance.
SINTERED BASE: A higher molecular weight, sintered base that provides added
durability and speed.

360 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.

About Arbor Snowboards

Using environmentally friendly, natural elements to improve style and performance, Arbor's long-standing assertion is that solutions to many of today's most difficult design challenges exist in the natural world. We still build our snowboard company around this belief. Arbor Snowboards is a small company managed exclusively by snowboarders and skaters who share a passion for alternative design. Arbor Snowboard Company is proud of their status as a style and technology pioneer and eco-design leader. Our unique approach has allowed us to develop an independent voice and arrive at today's fusion of green design innovation and consumer environmental awareness. Our Rocker System is Arbor’s reverse camber 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. Parabolic Rocker is a true rocker design that progressively reduces the amount of rocker toward the tip and tail. This ensures that the outside contact points are close enough to the snow to engage when maximum edge performance is required – higher speeds, loaded turns, and bigger landings. Grip Tech is a sidecut design that adds four contact points under your feet. It provides a more ergonomic way to grip the snow when control is needed. Grip Tech also forms heel and toe pivot points that make turning easier and more natural.
