Arbor Element Snowboard – Wide
The Arbor Element Wide Snowboard excels at peak-to-park pursuits with its versatile shape, surfy rocker profile, and medium flex. It's a directional twin (i. e. what Arbor calls Mountain Twin) for the centered feel of a freestyle board, but with a slightly larger nose that glides across powder with ease. Ultimately, the Element Wide Snowboard eagerly obliges to your shredding ambitions, whether it's slushy park hits or soulful turns in the trees. The Element employs The System Rocker for a loose, surfy feel when you're slashing turns, dialing tricks in the park, and floating across the deep stuff. This parabolic rocker is most accentuated at center, becoming less pronounced at the tip and tail for better engagement with the snow. Ultimately, it delivers the superior float and catch-free personality you've come to love from rocker boards. As you're probably aware, rocker boards are prone to washing out through turns. Arbor alleviates this with their Grip Tech sidecut, which places two additional "bumps" alongside your bindings for greater edge hold, regardless if you're railing turns on groomers or laying an aggressive edge on steep faces.
