Description

The board that launched the brand. An ATV from its inception, Arbor's flagship Element maintains its rank as the most versatile top to bottom mountain twin in their line. Conquer all terrain with confidence on this year’s Element. Available in both System Camber and System Rocker.

The Arbor brand was launched with the Element. 26 years later it remains as essential to our line as it was on day one. This all-terrain snowboard continues to adopt the technology of the times without straying from its mission to be the most versatile, resort mountain-twin available, and provide amazing top-to-bottom performance. 

Camber Profile 

The System Rocker – The Rocker System combines a progressive parabolic arc rocker profile with a tri-radial Grip Tech sidecut design. Enjoy more natural and cleaner tracking turns with a high-performance surfy ride.

Shape

Mountain Twin - This board is a twin but has a directional shaped nose and tail, so it can ride switch with no problems but will provide better float going forwards.

Grip-Tech – 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.

Due to the addition of Grip Tech, it's possible to slightly lift the outside contact points, reducing catch and improving tracking and turn initiation. 

Knucklehead Tip – Peak to parking lot with extra punch for powder.

Core

FSC® Certified Highland II Core – A newly developed screening process has allowed Arbor to hand select the very lightest and highest quality paulownia from its sourcing partners. The result is a lighter, more responsive version of the FSC Certified Highland Core known for highly reliable return and long-lasting durability.

Laminates

Mixed Glassing – A triax over biax lay-up that's best for versatility: pow, backcountry, groomers, jumps and more.

Sidewalls

360° Rails – A 360°, fully wrapped sidewall that 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.

Recycled ABS – When a plastic alternative is unavailable, as in the case of ABS sidewalls, Arbor does its best to opt for a recycled material to improve the sustainability of its products.

Base

Sintered Base – Fast and Durable

Edges

Recycled Steel Edges – Arbor uses the most sustainable components possible. All edges are made from recycled steel. Highly durable, recycled steel edges embody both quality and sustainability.

Topsheet

Hand Dyed Ash Powerply – The Powerply works like an added layer of fiberglass. During construction, the natural wood or bamboo fibers are turned into a composite layer inside the board.

Additional Features

Entropy Bio Resin – Starting with the 2020 line, Arbor is proud to announce that all Powerplys and R.A.P. Topless Tech veneers will be made with Entropy Bio-Resin, a replacement for traditional petroleum based resin that doesn't affect performance or usability. The ingredients that go into Entropy Bio-Resin 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.

Factory Tuned – Arbor detunes the tip and tail contact points on all of its snowboards for a catch-free ride before they leave the factory.

Wend Natural Wax – All Arbor snowboards hit the shop floor ready to ride with Wend Natural Wax.
