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.

Camber Profile

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

Flex Rating – 5/10 (1=Soft,10=Stiff)

Shape

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. 

Core

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.

Laminates

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.

Sidewalls

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.

Base

Sintered Base  A higher molecular weight, sintered base that provides added durability and speed.

Edges

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.

Topsheet

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.

Additional Features

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.
