Arbor 2023 Foundation Snowboard :
Life long passions usually start with deep roots. So feed your passion with the Arbor Foundation Snowboard. This forgiving all-mountain board eats up chunder and rails corners thanks to a full poplar wood core, poppy rocker profile and progressive Spoonhead tips. Strap up with a board that lets you focus on riding just about anywhere with the progression-friendly Arbor Foundation Snowboard.
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.

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
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.
