Product Info

Watching Scotty Vine hit rails that would demolish any other veteran rider can be demotivating and intimidating. However, let Arbor set you on the right track with the Arbor Formula Snowboard. Built for the beginner-intermediate rider and focused on progression, the Formula is the quickest way to get you on pace with the pros. Exceptionally easy to ride, partly because of The System True Rocker technology, this board stays on top of the snow and a shorter tail gives a luxurious ride that won't catch an edge. Get to pro level faster with the Arbor Formula Snowboard.

Product Details

Rocker Type

The System - True RockerThe System is Arbor's rocker platform. Rocker is created by replacing the lengthwise positive arc of a traditional camber snowboard with a reverse shape similar to the profile of a surfboard. The design eliminates the leverage required to release and re-engage a camber snowboard's outside contact points, creating a more seamless ride. Rocker delivers easier turn initiation, cleaner tracking across the snow, better float in powder, and more fluid spins and slides.

Flex

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

Shape

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.

Core

Poplar Wood CorePoplar wood cores are durable and lightweight. Snowboards made with Poplar are known to have a consistent and evenly distributed flex throughout.

Reclaimed wood inlays

Laminates

BiaxBiax laminate consists of fiberglass that is braided in two directions. The fibers are braided vertically at 90 degrees. This ensures a torsional flex that is more evenly distributed throughout the snowboard. For you, this translates to a snowboard that is easy to handle and jib friendly.

Sidewalls

360-Degree Full Wrap SidewallsDurability and impact resistance

Base

Extruded BasePolyethylene pellets are melted down in extreme heat then forced together under a high pressure machine. The end result is a strong, solid, and smooth base that is easy to maintain, non-porous and extremely durable.

Binding Compatibility

2 x 4 10-Pack InsertsDelivers added stance range.

          I had a K2 Birgade and upgraded to this, only had 2 eight hour sessions in so far but coming from the K2, my performance in the park has improved a ton, it's a very smooth ride on decent snow but if the snow is older or rougher it likes to bounce a little bit. Flex is killer, I like it a lot.
