Arbor Snowboards 2017

with No Comments

Arbor Snowboards are looking as good as ever for 2017. Their range of freeride / backcountry focused decks has evolved this year and includes some new lines alongside classic boards like the Element, Wasteland and soon to be classic Bryan Iguchi Pro. All Arbor boards are built around the brand’s Camber or Rocker System. Details like Grip Tech also feature throughout the line alongside Arbor’s stellar aesthetic and environmental heritage.

THE SYSTEM

Arbor describe their System rocker / camber design like this:

The System is Arbor’s principal design platform. It was developed to improve true rocker and camber designs, without fusing the two together into hybrid shapes, which sacrifices some of the inherent benefits of each.The System creates a more effective, closer connection to the snow that delivers a smoother ride with improved control.

The Rocker System design provides a surfy ride, with natural float and cleaner tracking. The Camber System offers a poppy ride with crisp, fully engaged performance. Both Systems use Grip Tech – essentially an extra contact point under the heel and toe. Both Systems are also built around a parabolic curve. This reduces the amount of rocker or camber towards the tip and tail which in turn, according to Arbor, create a more effective interaction with the snow. In addition, all Camber System boards also feature Uprise Fenders; the beveling up of the front a rear contact points by 3 degrees for a smoother, more catch-free ride.

With so many different board profiles out there these days, it’s good to see a board company keeping things relatively straightforward across their entire line. Check out the two videos below for more info on both the Rocker and Camber System.
