Arbor 2015 Formula Snowboard :
An accessible all-mountain rocker design that’s exceptionally easy to ride; the Formula is ideal for growing and expanding your riding, a confidence building cruiser that was created to provide you with the perfect blend of afford- ability, technology, and performance.
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

100% FSC certified poplar: the industry standard for reliable return and lasting durability
Laminates: Bi-axial Fiberglass
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.
