Arbor Snowboards 2010-2011
24 Feb, 2010
Arbor’s been in the game of building performance driven snowboards since 1995 and while most of their focus has been freeride they’ve been building solid freestyle boards that are getting more looks each year. They continue with their environmental awareness without green washing their board line, they do what they can and continue to build boards around what works. They’ve refined their talent for art into board design and consistently pushing out beautiful works of art that you can ride.
After last season’s success with the System Technology, Arbor has created different versions dependent on the style of riding. For 10-11, they have the jib system (last year’s system), the park system and the mountain system. The jib system is a parabolic rocker with true-twin shapes, robusto tips, softer flexs with bronze edges. The park system is a parabolic rocker with true-twin shapes, corona tips, me-soft flex and steel edges. The mountain system is a parabolic rocker with directional-twin shapes, toro tips, medium flexes and steel edges. Each of those systems feature grip tech which is an additional contact point added to where the bindings are.
For the camber riders, Arbor hasn’t forgotten their signature line of boards based around charging the mountain and offer those boards like the Aframe, Abacus, Element, Roundhouse, Push in camber for 10-11.
