When you graduate from riding the parks, take a step outside the boundaries on the Arbor A-Frame Snowboard. The A-Frame is a pow hungry machine, featuring a traditional camber design to keep you locked and held in on a deeply carved line while providing you with powerful control in the steep chutes. The A-Frame is loaded with features such as Carbon A-Frames, Shaman Core, and High-Load Glassing to give give you the perfect balance of power and control. Crisp, animated edge control with amazing stability at high speed, the A-Frame is your ride into the real world.
Camber A mellow convex rise from the contact points of the tip and tail inward with an apex at the midpoint. A rider's edge hold and pop derive from the pressure exerted and expelled when camber is flexed under a rider's weight. This downward pressure - the flattening of camber-initiates lively turns and provides continuous edge contact with snow.
Medium-Stiff Flex A slightly stiff flex to provide you with excellent aggressiveness and response for big-mountain riding.
Directional Directional boards are designed to be ridden predominately in one direction. Stiffer in the tail and softer towards the nose to help maintain stability while carving at high speed.
BL3 Progressive Sidecut Blended tri-radial design, improved turning, initiation, and stability.
Shaman Core Blend of renewable Paulownia and FSC Poplar wood, ultra-lightweight and durability.
Carbon A-Frames Connect the contact points to your feet for next-level edge performance.
High-Load Glassing Triax over triax lay-up, ideal for on-edge performance: Steeps, carving, speed.
Bamboo Power Walls Sustainable bamboo sidewalls deliver impact durability, edge performance, and crisp return.
Rocket Base A high molecular weight, wax-infused sintered base, unmatched durability and speed.
Recycled Steel Edges Max edge durability and performance, made with 60% recycled hardened steel.

Comments about Arbor A-Frame Snowboard 2014:
I've had an A-frame for four seasons now and it eats just about anything I thrown at it. It excels is steep technical terrain. Locks an edge like it is on rails and can blast some tight tree lines and steep chutes as far your stomach is ready to feed it. The only thing it suffers from is deep powder performance. While it is as a good an all around big mountain board as I think exists deep powder is it biggest weakness. It doesn't have the float of a dedicated powder board; nonetheless it will reward any rider looking for steep technical lines. I love that board, my future holds either a abacus split or Jones hovercraft for expanding my BC experience, but I've never been sorry to have my AFrame with me on any day. As far as a board that can lock an icy step line and the transition to fast tight trees in moderately deep snow there is no other. I love this board.
