Make your first turns the Arbor Formula Snowboard. The Arbor Formula features an all-mountain rocker designed to be easy to ride so you can learn and grow with confidence. Turn with ease and eventually bomb hills on the tough and fast Fusion Base. The Formula also features other high-end features such as UN3 Progressive Sidecuts and Rhythm walls found on Arbor's high-end boards to provide you with great edgehold and durability. Affordable, powerful and great for beginners, the Arbor Formula Snowboard is your stepping stone to the world of snowboarding.
Rocker Type
System Rocker - A "True-Rocker" design based on the parabolic arc; a shape that gradually reduces the amount of rocker toward the tips. This ensures that the outside contact points are close enough to the snow to reengage when maximum edge control is needed: Loaded Turns, higher speeds, bigger landings. Arbor's parabolic rocker provides an additional layer of on-demand edge control, without sacrificing any true-rocker performance.
Flex
Medium Flex - A responsive flex that remains playful and forgiving enough for a fun ride that can handle any terrain.
Shape
Directional-Twin Shape - A directional twin shape with a slightly drawn out nose, perfect for on-mountain, backcountry, and deep snow performance
Sidecut
UN3 Progressive Sidecut (Grip Tech) - Unblended tri-radial, better turning, initiation, stability. Grip Tech is a sidecut design that creates four additional contact points under foot for significantly improved, more direct edge control. The new contacts also create heel and toe pivot points that make turning faster and more efficient. Grip-Tech allows Arbor to offer a "True-Rocker" profile with powerful edge control, and thus preserve the full range of associated performance benefits. Grip-Tech also allows riders with larger feet (up to US men's 12) to ride standard width shapes.
Core
Mission II Core - A unique composite core made with 20% reclaimed wood fiber - value, soft-flex performance, strength.
Laminates
Butter Glassing - A biax over biax lay-up designed for park and street inspired all-mountain riding.
Sidewalls
Rhythm Walls - An advanced blend of ABS and urethane; deliver durability and a clean, acoustically damp ride.
Base
Fusion Base - A tough, user-friendly extruded material that's light and easy to repair.
Edges
Recycled Steel Edges - Max edge durability and performance, made with 60% recycled hardened steel.
Topsheet
Bio-Film - Hi-gloss film, 30% bio-plastic, protects top while replacing biologically harmful clear coat.

Specs

  • Terrain: All-Mountain
    All-Mountain
    All-mountain snowboards are designed for exploring the whole mountain. They are your go-to for a snowboard that will do anything. They feel at home on groomers, powder, park runs and almost anything in between. The vast majority of snowboarders choose all-mountain boards for their great versatility. If you’re just getting started or unsure of exactly what you need, an all-mountain snowboard is a great choice.
  • Ability Level: Beginner-Intermediate
    Beginner-Intermediate
    Whether you’re new to the sport or working on linking smooth turns, you fall into this ability level. Typical beginner skis and snowboards are usually built with softer materials, narrower widths, and feature cap construction for an easy to turn, forgiving ride. Beginner-intermediate boots and bindings are also built for ease of use and progression, featuring softer flexes and in the case of ski bindings, quick and safe release from the ski in case of a fall.
  • Rocker Type: Rocker
    Rocker
    A rocker board side profile is the opposite of a camber board, with a smooth downward curvature to it and less edge contact length when the board is weighted. Rocker boards float well in powder and pivot more easily underfoot. They also tend to be less “hooky” at both tip and tail and better for landing spin maneuvers when you don’t quite have enough rotation.
  • Flex Rating: Medium
    Medium
    The amount a snowboard flexes varies significantly between boards. Snowboard flex ratings are not necessarily standardized across manufacturers, so the flex may vary from brand to brand. Many manufacturers will give a number rating ranging from 1-10, 1 being softest and 10 being stiffest. Here at evo we have standardized the manufacturers' number ratings to a feel rating ranging from soft to very stiff. Generally you will find flex ratings of 1-2 as soft, 3-5 as medium, 6-8 as stiff, and 9-10 as very stiff. Flex ratings and feel may ultimately vary from snowboard to snowboard.
  • Core/Laminates: Wood
  • Warranty: 2 Years
    2 Years

    Intermediate-Advanced
    Whether you’re a progressing intermediate exploring new runs and terrain, or an accomplished rider seeking new thrills, the majority of skiers and snowboarders fall into this level. Intermediate to advanced skis and snowboards may be somewhat wider or stiffer than beginner-intermediate skis and snowboards, usually with a stronger wood core and sandwich sidewall construction. Intermediate to advanced boots and bindings range from softer flexing freestyle options to stiffer choices built for stability at speed.
