Product Info

Like whiskey, the Arbor Whiskey Snowboard's technology has been aged properly and has stood the test of time. Combining some of Arbor's best technology, this board is perfect for the beginner to the advanced, and from the park to the slopes. Mix together The System True Rocker, a medium flex profile, and it's Mountain-Twin shape, and you'll be on the mountain longer without having a pesky edge catch on harder turns. The Arbor Whiskey Snowboard leads to fewer headaches and more progression.

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.

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.

Power Ply TopStructural, performance enhancing real wood. Protective film laminated to the power ply tops contains 30% bio-plastic and eliminates the need for toxic clear coats.

Comments about Arbor Whiskey Snowboard 2015:

I bought the Arbor Whiskey this season (2014/2015) after first renting a couple of different boards before. When renting them I sometimes had good and sometimes had bad luck so I wanted to have my own setup that I work on and improve.

The Arbor Whiskey seemed to be the perfect choice. For me as a complete beginner (first season, three times on a board) it was extremely nice and easy to handle. Initiating turns was super easy and smooth so i wasn't scared to carve even on narrow paths. It was extremely forgiving with mistakes so i did't fall remotely as often as with the other boards. It's just so much more motivating if you're not on your face or back all the time (especially when you start so late in life like I did). On the downside maybe if you're beginner on a steep hill and stand more straight sometimes and go slower, because of the shape it doesn't grip as much with the edges but as you're more comfortable with your carving that's not an issue at all anymore.
Just long flats, higher speeds and deeper turns are not it's strong side but I will definitely have a lot of fun with this also for the next few seasons to come. I ride some stiffer bindings (Flow NX2 Hybrid) on it and use medium stiff boots (Flow Solite Coiler) and I honestly couldn't be happier. It was super snug and responsive and still comfortable all day.

The Arbor Whiskey is awesome if you're looking for a great forgiving board for beginners or a fun allrounder.
