Don't let a perfect line go to waste by butchering it on a mediocre snowboard. The Arbor
Abacus Splitboard is the type of board that will get you down that unforgettable line with style and finesse. The Abacus features a reclined version of Arbor
's System Rocker to provide you with arc-it-in, float-over dominance you would expect from a reverse camber design, while providing you with supreme board to snow contact usually found on traditional camber boards. Whether you're hiking up gnarly ridges, or flying through deadly chutes, make sure you're riding the Arbor
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.
Medium Flex - A responsive flex that remains playful and forgiving enough for a fun ride that can handle any terrain.
Reclined Directional-Twin Shape - A directional twin shape with a slightly drawn out nose, perfect for on-mountain, backcountry, and deep snow performance.
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.
