Profile : Rocker
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.
Outline : Directional Twin
A directional twin shape with a slightly drawn out nose, perfect for riding all over the mountain in your quest to find the best terrain
Construction : Poplar
Malt Core : Our standard wood core for highly reliable return and lasting durability. Made from 100% sustainably grown Poplar wood.
Laminates : Bi-axial Fiberglass
Butter Glassing : a biax over biax lay-up to take you over the entire mountain
Edges : 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.
Top Sheet : 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 or bamboo topsheet, they significantly enhance board pop and return for much improved true-rocker performance.
Oh, and it looks amazing!
