Arbor A-Frame Snowboard 2012

Bring out the big guns with the Arbor A-Frame Snowboard. A big-mountain performer through and through, the A-Frame features a Directional shape, camber flex and superior Shaman core. Locked and loaded, the A-Frame offers superior on-edge performance, powerful control and amazing stability at high speeds.
Rocker Type
Traditional camber shape for maximum edge control and ollie power.
Flex
Medium-Stiff flex
Shadow flex is a slight tapered thinning of the core profile between the bindings and improves: turn and spin initiation; tracking in mixed conditions, on the flats, and during landings; and performance on rails, boxes, and jibs.
Construction and Core
Power Ply works like a 3rd layer of fiberglass that structurally enhances a board for added return and improved durability. Arbor’s wood Power Plys are produced using a range of sustainably sourced, natural wood veneers.
Shaman core is Arbor’s lightest, most tech more; designed for high-end mountain riding and built with a 50/50 blend of Paulownia and Poplar woods.
Hi-load Glass is a triax over triax layup is ideal for on-edge performance.
Shape
Directional shape
Standard Progressive sidecut is a blended tri-radial sidecut design that provides tighter turning and quicker initiation, while maintaining stability at speed, when flat boarding, and during landings.
Sidewalls, Edges and Base
Power Rails sidewalls are made from environmentally friendly bamboo and deliver amazing landing and impact durability, unmatched edge performance and powerful return off your rails.
Rocket base is a higher molecular weight, wax-infused sintered base that provides unmatched durability and speed.
Recycled steel edges are built with hardened steel made using 60% recycled steel; provide maximum edge performance.
Ultra-thin protective top foil made using 30% caster bean based bio-plastic. This top sheet protects the board from damage caused by loose bindings, out-of-control skiers, or other unforeseen impacts. It also eliminates the need for environmentally harmful clear coats.

Binding Compatibility
2x4 inserts provide both a wide stance range and amazing micro adjustability.

Specs

  • Terrain: All-Mountain, Freeride
    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.
    Freeride
    Freeride snowboards are designed for the rider that spends most of the day off groomed runs and in backcountry terrain. They typically have a stiffer flex and are ridden in longer sizes than freestyle snowboards. Freeride snowboards often feature a directional shape that is designed to perform optimally in one direction.
  • Ability Level: Intermediate-Advanced
    Intermediate-Advanced
    The majority of skiers/snowboarders fall into this level, whether you like to carve on groomers or venture into the powder. These skis/snowboards may be somewhat wider than beginner-intermediate skis, usually with a stronger wood core and sandwich sidewall construction. Depending on the type of ski, intermediate-advanced level skis may have full camber, rocker, or some combination of the two.
  • Rocker Type: Camber
    Camber
    Camber is the traditional profile for snowboards, and still popular among high-level park and pipe riders because it offers maximum energy and pop. A cambered board has a smooth arch underfoot and touches near the tip and tail when unweighted; when the rider’s weight is added, it provides a long, evenly pressured running surface and edge.
  • Flex Rating: Stiff
    Stiff
    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.
