Arbor s flagship all-mountain line dropping snowboard will carry you to the very edges of what others would consider wasteland. The Arbor Wasteland Snowboard has an award-winning System Rocker that is highly maneuverable, playful and offers ample board feel. The deck comes equipped with an inlaid version of Arbor s Power Ply topsheet for cutting-edge response and versatility wherever you take it. Each Arbor core is custom-built and CNC-shaped for the specific model and size, and when you're riding the Arbor Wasteland Snowboard, you'll experience the full-throttle effect of its hand-crafted goodness.
The System Rocker This rocker deck's design eliminates the leverage required to release and re-engage a snowboard's outside contact points. In translation, riders get a seamless turn initiation, better float in powder, and more fluid spins and slides.
Parabolic Rocker The System utilizes rocker profiles created using the parabolic arc, which progressively reduces the amount of rocker toward the tip and tail of a snowboard. This creates low, more effective profiles and ensures the outside contact points are close enough to the snow to engage when maximum performance is required: higher speeds, loaded turns, and bigger landings.
Medium Flex The most versatile flex because it is equally responsive and friendly giving riders peak performance all over the mountain.
Mountain Twin A 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 Tips Big-mountain versatility and speed in the deepest snow.
Grip Tech Sidecut Grip Tech is a tri-radial sidecut design that is not blended. Shaping intersections have been transformed into heel and toe contact points that provide a direct, more ergonomic way to grip snow. Grip Tech effectively moves a board's primary interface with the snow underfoot, delivering designs that don't lose performance as the leading sections of the effective edges are lifted from the snow.
Highland Core Arbor'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 Glassing Extra strength, extra performance thanks to Arbor's Triax over Biax lay-up.
Carbon Uprights This 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 Rails The sidewall fully wraps the circumference of the deck to deliver an incredibly tight tolerance for improved board life and durability.
Sintered Base A higher molecular weight provides added durability and speed.
Die-Cut Base Base color displayed may not be available. Base colors may vary.
Premium Inlaid Power Ply The Power Ply works like an added layer of fiberglass. During construction, the natural wood or bamboo fibers are turned into a composite layer inside the board.

Comments about Arbor Wasteland Snowboard 2017:
Like most Arbor snowboards, this one has a real woodgrain topsheet. This one specifically intermixes a few different ones that also incorporate a pearl inlaided moon cycle. So graphically, it's a 10 in my opinion. This board also is a bit of an anomaly, because it's an all around freeride board that runs a pretty consistent reverse camber profile. It finds its dynamic utility from being laid up with more high end fiberglass, while incorporating "grip tech" (extra contact points) under your main points of pressure (toes & heels). It's one of the more logical edge hold enhancing technologies in the market. It rode easily and I could tell would be quickly comfortable in most all-mountain conditions (aside from aggressive park riding). Having the kind of camber profile it does makes it quicker and more forgiving at low speeds, while staying on top of the heavy, wet, choppy conditions, and pow we run here in the PNW. If it can handle all these here, it'll rule pretty much everywhere (outside of consistently ballistic hardpack, like in New England, where normal camber tech still dominates). Grab this beauty, and enjoy!

Just a three days at Wolf Creek. First 2 days were pretty heavily groomed and the last day we had 15"+. This board will be the first board I buy after over 20 years of renting. Really the best control and maneuverability I have experienced.
