2023 Arbor Westmark Frank April Rocker Snowboard + Arbor Hemlock Bindings Package
2023 Arbor Westmark Rocker Frank April Snowboard
Frank April has something sweet for you this year. Brand new for 2022/23 season, a redesigned tip and tail profile make for a more refined, poppy, powerful ride. This season the Westmark is offered on Hand Dyed Ash with its beloved flip tips for an optimal ollie and nollie performance. Frank’s design on this year’s Westmark draws influence from his time spent riding in the park and streets and is the perfect playful resort cruiser. Available in both System Camber and System Rocker.
System Rocker – If you want a surfy ride, natural float, buttery turns and spins, and catch-free tracking across the snow - all with highly reliable edge hold - then Arbor's System Rocker shapes are for you. System Rocker progressively reduces the amount of rocker toward the tip and tail and allows the outside contacts to easily engage when max edge hold is needed.
Flex Rating – 5/10 (1=Soft,10=Stiff)
Flip Tips – Increased ramping on the nose and tail of the snowboard create the perfect platform for catch free nollies and fakie ollies.
Grip-Tech – Grip Tech is a combination of three separate sidecut radii in the nose, tail, and centre of the board, effectively giving the board an additional two contact points. This provides extra grip and control in all conditions, and also makes turning smoother, easier, and less catchy, without losing performance.
Highland Core – Arbor's most versatile core, constructed with a 1:2 blend of poplar and paulownia, for super light weight performance, durability, and return.
Biax Glassing – A biax over biax lay–up that’s designed for park and street inspired all-mountain riding. Also creates a good platform for learning.
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.
Recycled Steel Edges – Highly durable, recycled steel edges embody Arbor's key values: quality and sustainability.
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.
Wend Natural Wax – All Arbor snowboards hit the shop floor ready to ride with Wend Natural Wax.

2023 Arbor Hemlock Snowboard Bindings
The Hemlock is perfect for park laps, urban assaults, and all–skill–level resort shredding. Arbor's exclusive System X Baseplate transfers rider input to a snowboard so effectively that Arbor was able to create a softer freestyle, all–mountain design that delivers surprisingly responsive performance and comfort.
System X – System X is a baseplate design that more efficiently transfers and evenly distributes a rider's energy into their snowboard. No matter where pressure is applied to the binding, the System X allocates energy across the baseplate's structural X shape, and out to the four cardinal points. The result is quicker, more effective control. 15% glass content for added strength and stability.
50A Durometer Outsole – The Outsole is a dampening interface made from a special TPE rubber. The Outsole integrates with the System X design and sits between the binding and a rider's snowboard. The Outsole diffuses high-frequency chatter while providing rebound and cushion for high-impact landings. On the Cypress, Arbor uses a slightly stiffer durometer TPE for added performance.
Adjustable Extruded Aluminum Heelcup – Highly durable extruded aluminum, designed to work with the Mini-Disk for amazing adjustability. Use the highback to center the foot and the disk to fine-tune your stance width.
Asymmetrical Highbacks – Arbor bindings feature low mounted asymmetrical highbacks with 5° pre-rotation, providing ergonomic feel and freedom of movement.
Tool-less Forward Lean Adjustment
Bow-Strap Adjuster – Arbor's patented "Bow-Strap" adjuster and ladder strap swings out of the way quickly and easily, making binding entry a simple, user-friendly experience. The pre-curved strap steers clear of your boot while maintaining form and durability in even the coldest conditions.
Co-Moulded Ankle Strap
Cast Aluminum Buckles and Levers – Arbor's upgraded buckles offer clean, ultra reliable performance, long-term durability, and a tighter, stronger click for unparalleled boot to binding connection.
2x4 Universal Mini-Disc – Mini-Disks require less surface area and along with the System X help provide a more organic snowboard flex underfoot. They are channel compatible.
