Product Info

The Arbor Abacus Splitboard's System True Rocker design works amazingly in backcountry conditions because it still maintains a large amount of snow contact for control, speed, and skinability. You can expect the Abacus to last a while too, considering the carbon fiber reinforcements, 360-Degree Full Wrap Sidewalls, Stainless Steel protectors on the nose and tail, and Mixed Glassing lamination. For the gnarliest of mountains, you'll need the attacking power of the Arbor Abacus Snowboard.

Product Details

Rocker Type

The System Rocker | Reclined Parabolic RockerArbor's System Rocker design provides a surfy ride, encourages a natural float and cleaner tracking. This playful low-profile deck has a parabolic arc that progressively reduces the amount of rocker towards the tip and tail. Due to this arc, the outside contact points are close enough to the snow to engage when maximum edge performance is critical - high speeds, fully loaded turns and big landings.


Medium FlexThe most versatile flex because it is equally responsive and friendly giving riders peak performance all over the mountain.


Mountain TwinA shorter tail than nose gives this board a slightly setback feeling keeping the board on top of the snow and perfect starting point for progression.

Thunderhead TipsBig-mountain versatility and speed in the deepest snow.

Grip Tech SidecutGrip Tech is a tri-radial sidecut design that is not “blended.” Natural shaping intersections, that in the past were eliminated, have been transformed into heel-and-toe contact points that provide a direct, more ergonomic way to grip the snow when additional control is needed. The extra contacts also form pivot zones that make turning easier and more natural.


Highland CoreArbor's highest-end core, made from a blend of estate-grown Poplar and Paulownia to provide the lightweight performance ideal for backcountry and powder.


Mixed GlassingExtra strength, extra performance thanks to Arbor's Triax over Biax lay-up.

Carbon UprightsThis board reinforcement places two carbon fibers from the tip and tail, just past the inserts. This addition makes for a durable, poppy board with backcountry performance.


360 RailsThe sidewall fully wraps the circumference of the deck to deliver an incredibly tight tolerance for improved board life and durability.


Sintered BaseA higher molecular weight provides added durability and speed.

Die-Cut BaseBase color displayed may not be available. Base colors may vary.


Premium Burled Eucalyptus Power Ply TopStructural, performance enhancing real wood top.

Comments about Arbor Abacus Splitboard 2016:

This thing is sick, climbs super well and crushes descents. The board is stiff enough to handle a little sketchier conditions but has enough flex to make it super fun in the trees and a little forgiving dropping pillows and cliffs. Not to mention the top sheet is one of the nicest in the split board game. Much more reasonably priced compared to the Jones, Lib Tech, and Never Summer boards. For in my opinion a better quality product and better performance. If you like to add a little flare to your backcountry this is the board for you, and if you like just mellow turns this thing floats like a dream 10/10 in my books. Arbor killed it.
