The 2023 Arbor Draft is the weapon of choice for riders who want a soft flexing jib board that they can lap the park with all season. The Parabolic Camber profile keeps the riding powerful and responsive for carving all mountain, and the big blunt tips hav lock in presses and getting big ollies easier than ever.
This board is scheduled for delivery to Melbourne Snowboard Centre Mid June 2022. This is an estimated delivery window and is subject to change. You will be notified via email once your board is ready to be collected in store, or once it has been shipped (if being shipped).
Camber Type: The Camber System
The Camber System from Arbor is a parabolic take on positive camber that progressively reduces the amount of camber towards the tip and tail. This ensures your contact points don't dig too hard into the snow, preventing edge catch, making it easier to turn and spin, and giving you a poppy ride with fully engaged performance.
Flex: 4/10 (1 = soft, 10 = stiff)
A soft flex rating means that you won't need much effort to get and hold proper presses, while keeping butters smooth and easy.
Shape: True Twin
A symmetrical design, that will ride exactly the same no matter if you are riding it regular or switch.
Flathead Tip Profile - This design has a larger surface area that helps make ollies, nollies and presses easier.
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.
Due to the addition of Grip Tech, it's possible to slightly lift the outside contact points, reducing catch and improving tracking and turn initiation.
Core: Single Malt Core
Arbor's standard wood core constructed with 100% sustainably grown poplar for highly reliable return and long-lasting durability.
A full Biax layup that's designed to be softer flexing and more forgiving for freestyle inspired all-mountain riding.
Base: Sintered Base
A high molecular weight base that provides extra durability and speed.
Mounting Pattern: 2x4 14-Pack Inserts
Bio Plastic Topsheet - Made from Castor Bean Oil, this top sheet is extremely durable, water repellent and helps to minimise petroleum based plastics from the production of the board.
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.
Entropy Bio-Resin - This board is made with Entropy Bio-Resin, which is a replacement for traditional petroleum-based resin that doesn't affect performance. The ingredients that go into Entropy Bio-Resin are co-products or waste products of other industrial processes and reduces the carbon footprint of the material by up to 40% (when compared to a petroleum-based equivalent).
Wend Natural Wax - This board is waxed with Wend Natural Wax and is ready to ride straight out of the shop.
