Arbor Element Snowboard Review
Make Your Selection:
Become one with the mountain on the Arbor Element Black Snowboard. Built with Arbor s cornerstone construction, this System Rocker board and sustainably-sourced Double Barrel wood and bamboo core speaks to some of the 20-year-old company’s core values – responsibility, craftsmanship, and all-mountain proficiency. The Element has been a reliable board since Arbor started out and still binds the close-knit community of snow fanatics together today.
The System Rocker – This 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.
Medium Flex – The most versatile flex because it is equally responsive and friendly giving riders peak performance all over the mountain.
Mountain Twin – A shorter tail than nose gives this board a slightly setback feeling keeping the board on top of the snow and perfect starting point for progression.
Knucklehead Tips – Peak to parking lot with extra punch for powder.
Grip Tech Sidecut – 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.
Double Barrel – Two Bamboo struts run tip-to-tail down the center of this upgraded Poplar core. Bamboo adds power and strength for bigger mountain performance.
Mixed Glassing – Extra strength, extra performance thanks to Arbor’s Triax over Biax lay-up.
360 Rails – The sidewall fully wraps the circumference of the deck to deliver an incredibly tight tolerance for improved board life and durability.
Sintered Base – A higher molecular weight provides added durability and speed.
Die-Cut Base – Base color displayed may not be available. Base colors may vary.
