Arbor Foundation Snowboard 2023

They say a journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step. And for snowboarding, that first step is a heck of a lot easier on the Arbor Foundation Snowboard. This aptly named snowboard is the perfect platform on which to perfect the craft of sliding sideways on frozen water. It has a fully rockered profile, which means the edges curve away from the snow instead of towards it, so turn initiation is easy and catch free. The flex of the board is smooth and soft for easy rideability, and the build itself is done as sustainably as possible, which doesn't do anything to make the board easier to ride, but does make it easier for all of us to keep riding further into the future, so that's a big win for everyone!

Product Details

Rocker Type

System RockerIf you want a surfy ride, natural float, buttery turns and spins, and catch-free tracking across the snow - all with highly reliable edge hold - then Arbor's System Rocker shapes are for you. System Rocker progressively reduces the amount of rocker toward the tip and tail and allows the outside contacts to easily engage when max edge hold is needed.

Flex

Flex Rating4 (1 Soft - 10 Stiff)

Shape

Grip-TechA 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.

Core

Highland CoreArbor's most versatile core, constructed with a 1:2 blend of poplar and paulownia, for super light weight performance, durability, and return.

Laminates

Biax GlassingA biax over biax lay–up that’s designed for park and street inspired all-mountain riding. Also creates a good platform for learning.

Sidewalls

360° Fully Wrapped SidewallsEliminates the need for tip fill, while effectively tying the whole snowboard together. A technology that delivers incredibly tight tolerances for improved board life and durability.

Base

Extruded BaseA tough, user-friendly extruded base that delivers ease of repair.

Edges

Recycled Steel EdgesHighly durable, recycled steel edges embody Arbor's key values: quality and sustainability.

Factory TunedArbor detunes the tip and tail contact points on all of their snowboards for a catch-free ride before they leave the factory.

Additional Features

Bio ResinBio-Resin is a replacement for traditional petroleum based resin that doesn't affect performance or usability. The ingredients that go into it are sourced as co-products or waste products of other industrial processes and are manufactured employing green chemistry techniques that reduce the carbon footprint of the material by up to 40% when compared to its petroleum based equivalent.

Arbor Hemlock Snowboard Bindings 2023

Legend has it that Socrates died by drinking poison hemlock upon conviction for corrupting the youth of Athens. Times have changed and Arbor have flipped the script. The youth are still being corrupted, but the Arbor Hemlock Snowboard Bindings are both the cause and the cure. They're the all terrain antidote for riders who trade morning powder laps for afternoon park shenanigans. That means you can tick off your favorite stashes, slashes, sends, and stomps on the same capable pair, no midday trip back to the car required.

Product Details

Baseplate

System XThe System X design evenly distributes a rider's energy into their snowboard. No matter where pressure is applied to the binding, the System X allocates energy across the baseplate's structural X shape, and out to the four cardinal points. The result is quicker, more effective control. 15% glass content for added strength and stability.

50A Durometer OutsoleThe Outsole is a dampening interface made from a special TPE rubber. The Outsole integrates with the System X design and sits between the binding and a rider's snowboard. The Outsole diffuses high-frequency chatter while providing rebound and cushion for high-impact landings. On the Cypress, Arbor uses a slightly stiffer durometer TPE for added performance.

Adjustable Extruded Aluminum HeelcupHighly durable extruded aluminum, designed to work with the Mini-Disk for amazing adjustability. Use the highback to center the foot and the disk to fine-tune your stance width.

EVA Footbed

Highback

Asymmetrical HighbacksArbor bindings feature low mounted asymmetrical highbacks with 5° pre-rotation, providing ergonomic feel and freedom of movement.

Tool-less Forward Lean Adjustment

Straps

Bow-Strap AdjusterArbor's patented "Bow-Strap" adjuster and ladder strap swings out of the way quickly and easily, making binding entry a simple, user-friendly experience. The pre-curved strap steers clear of your boot while maintaining form and durability in even the coldest conditions.

Co-Moulded Ankle Strap

Buckles

Fiberglass Reinforced Nylon Buckles and Levers

Additional Features

2x4 Universal Mini-Disc Mini-Disks require less surface area and along with the System X help provide a more organic snowboard flex underfoot. They are channel compatible.
