Product Info

The beautifully crafted Arbor Element Black Snowboard is a directional twin made to shred in any conditions and last for many years. Based on the original Element that opened people's eyes to the beauty of natural wood topsheets, the Element Black uses a hand-dyed Ash Power Ply top, and remains the pride of the company.

Product Details

Rocker Type

The System RockerThis 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.

Flex

Flex: 5 (1=Soft, 10=Stiff)

Shape

Mountain TwinMildly directional with symmetrical tip and tail dimensions but a shorter tail than tip.

Knucklehead TipPeak to parking lot with extra punch for powder.

Grip Tech Contact PointsTwo Grip Tech contact points placed under the back foot add edge control and stability, while allowing the front foot to remain loose and surfy.

Core

Single Malt CoreArbor's standard wood core, made from 100% sustainably grown poplar for highly reliable return and long-lasting durability.

Laminates

Mixed GlassingA triax over biax lay-up that's best for versatility: pow, backcountry, groomers, jumps and more.

Sidewalls

360° RailsFully wrapped sidewall that eliminates 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 BaseDense and long-lasting.

Topsheet

Ash Power PlyThe 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.
