Board Tech (2023)

Board Tech (1)

The System is Arbor’s principal design platform. We developed The System to improve true rocker and camber designs by maintaining the integrity of both platforms without fusing either into a hybrid design. We believe that hybridization sacrifices some of the inherent benefits of each design philosophy. The System is an advanced rocker and camber design that improves upon the benefits of each platform depending on the needs of each rider. Whether you prefer the crisp, fully engaged performance of camber or the surfy, butter feel of rocker, The System creates a clean, effective connection to the snow, delivering a smooth ride with enhanced control.

The Camber System design offers a poppy ride with crisp, fully engaged performance.

Grip Tech is a 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. The extra contacts also form pivot zones that make turning easier and more natural. Grip Tech effectively moves a board’s primary interface with the snow underfoot, allowing us to deliver designs that don’t lose performance as we lift leading sections of the effective edge from the snow for a less grabby ride. Those designs include rocker, or camber with our new Uprise Fenders. Uprise Fenders pull the outside contact zones off the snow with angled 3º risers on all Camber System designs.

The System utilizes rocker or camber profiles created using the parabolic arc, which progressively reduces the amount of rocker or camber toward the tip and tail of a snowboard. This creates low, more effective profiles. On our Rocker System designs, parabolic profiling ensures the outside contact points are close enough to the snow to engage when maximum performance is required – higher speeds, fully loaded turns, and bigger landings. On Camber System designs, this guarantees the outside contact points do not dig too far into the snow, creating a cleaner, less catchy performance that makes it easier to turn, spin, and ride fast.

Pow Tech and Pow Fenders are a powder-specific version of the System Technology, offered on the Cask and Terrapin models. With PowTech, we’ve eliminated the front two GripTech contact points and moved the board’s primary interface with the snow under your back foot, allowing us to deliver powder specific performance driven by the power of your back leg. Pow Fenders are oversized Up-Rise Fenders that pull the outside contact points up off the snow, creating smooth turning and extra float.

Our signature Powerply topsheets are made with a sustainably sourced wood or bamboo topsheet. We refer to this technology as a Power Ply. The natural grain creates the style we’ve been known for since we launched in 1995. Less recognized is how the technology improves the strength, durability, and return of our snowboards. 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, but the process takes time. We start with a log that must be soakedso that it can be sliced or “veneered” into sheets, which are then assembled into “faces”. The “faces” are then backed with a special fleece material, precision sanded, and pre– laminated to a protective foil made in part from natural castor bean oil. The finished topsheet is at last ready to be built into a snowboard. In the end, the process makes Arbor Power Ply designs the most labor–intensive snowboards on the market. The resulting performance, board life, finish quality, reduced reliance on man–made glues, coatings, and composites are worth the extra effort.

Starting with our 2020 line we are proud to announce that all Powerplys and R.A.P. Topless Tech veneers will be made with Entropy Bio-Resin, a replacement for traditional petroleum based resin that doesn’t affect performance or usability. The ingredients that go into Entropy Bio-Resin 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).
