This page is provided for reference to historical product information.

The easy-to-ride Arbor Formula snowboard has all-mountain rocker that carves the groomers and floats on pow. It's an ideal board to learn and grow with.

  • Mountain rocker design offers reliable, all-aspect performance in deep powder, tight trees, technical steeps and carvable groomers
  • Parabolic rocker shape grips the terrain for maximum edge control; this means loaded turns, higher speeds and bigger landings
  • Grip Tech sidecut makes 4 points of contact underfoot for improved and direct edge control; contact points create heel and toe pivot points for faster, more efficient turning
  • Mountain twin shape positions the rider directly over the Grip Tech contact points for effective edge activation, and adds nose length for better float in pow
  • Rocker-specific flex pattern enhances the ride on this de-cambered board, easing turns, spins and presses
  • High-density composite core is made with 20% reclaimed wood fiber and reinforced with sustainably-produced poplar inlay for improved freeride performance
  • ABS/urethane blend sidewall construction provides maximum durability and excellent edge control
  • Butter glassing (biax over biax) is best for park and street-inspired, all-mountain and urban riding
  • Topsheet features a protective ultrathin finish, made from a castor-bean-based bio-plastic, that guards against damage caused by loose bindings and unforeseen impacts
  • Board's core profile is slightly thinner and tapered in between the bindings to enhance mountain and park performance
  • Fusion base is a made from a tough, user-friendly extruded compound that is light and easy to repair
  • Steel edges are 60% recycled material and offer maximum durability and performance
  • Snowboard deck and base colors may vary from online photo
