Powder. The magical blurring state between solid, liquid, and gas. The headspace where gravity and sanity collide, and in their union, there is a temporary absence of both. It is the dream that we all chase as we make our winter pilgrimages to the mountains, and it is an homage to this otherworldly phenomenon that Arbor has shaped the Arbor Single Camber Snowboard. The Arbor Single has a wide body, a big Thunderhead tip, and an aggressively tapered pintail to float through powder like the Silver Surfer on a nebula cloud. The setback stance and directional shape make the back foot sink and the front foot rise, giving you the leverage to lay down trenches through untouched blankets of holy-wow-I-must-be-dreaming. Drop in, spray clouds, become one with the snow singularity.
Rocker Type: System Camber
If you want a highly responsive ride, crisp on-edge performance, and more pop for carving and ollies - all with smoother camber performance - then System Camber shapes are for you. The camber progressively reduces toward the tip and tail, making the leading edge less aggressive for cleaner on-snow performance.
Arbor’s Fenders are lifted side sections at the tip/tail of the board that create smoother performance without shortening the camber section of the board. As a result, you get a clean ride without any loss of the pop that comes from full-length camber. Pow Fenders feature long tip sections with 3° rise for deeper snow performance and maximum float.
Highland II Core – A newly developed screening process has allowed Arbor to hand select the very lightest and highest quality paulownia from sourcing partners. The result is a lighter, more responsive version of the Highland Core, known for highly reliable return and long-lasting durability.
Mixed Glassing – A triax over biax lay-up that's best for versatility: pow, backcountry, groomers, jumps, and more.
360° Fully Wrapped Sidewalls – 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.
Sintered Base – A higher molecular weight, sintered base that provides added durability and speed.
Factory Tuned – Arbor detunes the tip and tail contact points on all of their snowboards for a catch-free ride before they leave the factory.
Hand Dyed Ash Powerply – Sustainably harvested, majority coming from borer-kill trees, off-white to light brown, the canvas for Arbor’s hand-dyed designs.
Bio-Plastic Topsheet – One of the materials Arbor uses in their quest to eliminate harmful petroleum based plastics from their production cycle. Made from Castor Bean Oil, this eco-topsheet is extremely durable and water repellent.
Bio Resin – Bio-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.
