The 2022 Arbor Foundation Rocker will help you lay down the foundations of your snowboarding, without breaking down your bank account. The parabolic Rocker System allows easy transition in and out of turns while still staying responsive, and the softer flex is super fun to press and play all throughout the resort. Built with high quality materials and construction that Arbor is known for, the Foundation is a forgiving, progression-focused ride that helps you pick up skills instead of putting you down.
Board Type: All Mountain
Camber Type: The Rocker System
The Rocker System from Arbor is a parabolic take on reverse camber that progressively reduces the amount of rocker towards the tip and tail. This results in your contact points being closer to the snow, allowing them to engage quicker and more effectively for enhanced response and stronger edge control, while still maintaining the natural float and surfy ride of rocker.
Flex: 3/10 (1 = soft, 10 = stiff)
A soft, playful flex for easy turns and fun all over the mountain.
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 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: FSC Certified Highland Core
The most versatile core in the Arbor range, it is made with a 1:2 poplar to paulownia for a blend of light weight performance and durability.
Biax Glassing - A full Biax layup that's designed to be softer flexing and more forgiving for freestyle inspired all-mountain riding.
Base: Extruded Base
A tough base that offers lightweight performance and is easy to maintain.
Mounting Pattern: 2x4 10-Pack Inserts
360° Fully Wrapped Sidewalls - These 360° sidewalls eliminate the need for tip fill, enhancing durability and improving board life.
Recycled Steel Edges - These highly durable recycled steel edges promote sustainability without sacrificing quality.
Wend Natural Wax - This board is waxed with Wend Natural Wax and is ready to ride straight out of the shop.
Factory Tuned - This snowboard is factory de-tuned at the tip and tail, so you can go riding straight away.
Recycled ABS - ABS Plastic is one of the necessary evils of snowboard production. Arbor improve the sustainability of this snowboard by using recycled plastic.
