Arbor Element Snowboard 2014

Riding one part of the mountain all day... ain't nobody got time for that! Hop on the Arbor Element Snowboard and take on the entire mountain, from groomers, to park, to surfing backcountry pow. The Element features Arbor's Mountain System Rocker, which gives the board a directional twin shape and a "True-Rocker" design to dominate the entire mountain. Other features such as Arbor's Mystic core, UN3 Progressive Sidecuts, and Progression Base, make the Element lightweight with great edgehold and a surprising amount of pop and response. High-end performance with a do-it-all design, the Arbor Element Snowboard is the perfect board for today's ride-it-all addicts.
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
Mystic Core - A light grade of FSC poplar reinforced with two tip-to-tail bamboo axels; lively, durable, and fun
Laminates
Mixed Glassing - A triax over biax lay-up that's best for versatile on-mountain and park riding.
Sidewalls
Rhythm Walls - An advanced blend of ABS and urethane; deliver durability and a clean, acoustically damp ride.
Base
Progression Base - A high molecular weight, continuous sintered material that provides durability and reduced weight.
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.
Power Ply Topsheet - Sustainably sourced structural wood, delivers improved return, durability, and weight.
Binding Compatibility
2 x 4 14-Pack Insterts - Provide a wide stance range and micro adjustability; max stance 24.4" / 62 cm.

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: 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: 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.
