Arbor A-Frame Snowboard

Arbor’s A-Frame is a big-mountain gun for riders who want the highest level of on-edge performance; this directional machine is designed to lock and hold a deeply carved line, provide tight control in the steeps, and deliver stability at higher speeds. An inlaid, structural wood top designed by artist Cody Gewertz pays respect to snowboarding’s surf roots.

Protecting the planet is about the environments we utilize everyday. We need clean air to skate, clean water to surf, and snow to ride. This is why Arbor incorporates the following specs:

STRUCTURAL WOOD TOPSHEET - Works like a 3rd layer of fiberglass - during construction resin locks the dense wood fibers in place, creating a composite layer that structurally enhances a board, providing added return and durability, while allowing for important weight reduction.

FSC CERTIFIED WOOD CORES - All of Arbor’s wood cores are made with poplar that has been certified by the Forest Stewardship Council as sustainably produced. Poplar is still the best choice as a primary wood core material due to its combination of lighter-weight performance, durability, and availability.

PAULOWNIA WEIGHT REDUCTION - Paulownia is a fast growing, plantation-cultivated wood species that we use as an ultra-lightweight, balsa-like core additive. Unlike balsa, Paulownia’s tensile strength is similar to traditional wood core materials, which allows us to deliver maximum weight reduction, without reducing durability
