Arbor 2013 Westmark Snowboard : A multidimensional rocker board designed for park-oriented riders who utilize the whole mountain; the Westmark delivers a higher level of pop, jump, spin, slide and press performance, while providing the park-level durability riders demand.
2013 Arbor Westmark Men's Snowboard Key Features:
Parabolic Rocker - Arbor uses a "true-rocker" design based on the parabolic arc; a shape that gradually reduces the amount of rocker toward the tip and tail. This ensures that the outside contact points are close enough to the snow to re-engage when maximum edge control is needed. This rocker profile provides an additional layer of on-demand edge control without having to sacrifice any true-rocker performance.
Grip Tech - This sidecut design creates four additional contact points under foot for significantly improved and more direct edge control. The new contacts also create heel and toe pivot points that make turning faster and more efficient. Grip-Tech enables Arbor to offer a "True-Rocker" profile with powerful edge control, and thus preserves the full range of associated performance benefits. Grip-Tech also allows riders with larger feet, up to a US Men's size 12, to ride standard width shapes.
Wood Power Ply - To counter the loss of the "leaf spring" like effect inherent in camber designs, Arbor turns to their power ply technology. By adding an additional structural layer to the board, in the form of a wood topsheet, they significantly enhance board pop and return for much improved true-rocker performance.
Medicine Core - This core is built from 100% FSC certified poplar. Poplar remains the industry’s standard for reliable return and lasting durability.
Rhythm Walls - Made of an advanced blend of ABS and urethane, Arbor’s Rhythm Walls deliver durability and a clean, acoustically damp ride.
Park Tips - The tip and tail of the snowboard have a semi-blunt shape with a flat kick to support more versatile park and all-mountain performance.
Butter Glassing - A biax over biax lay-up that’s designed for park and street inspired all-mountain riding.
Fusion Base - A tough, user-friendly extruded base that's lightweight and easy to repair.
