Description

The 2021 Arbor Element Premium 25yr Koa Camber is an incredibly special celebrative, limited edition version of one Arbor's most famous boards, being offered for one last time with Hawaiian Koa wood. Made from a truly sustainably sourced construction of Hawaiian Koa trees collected over the years by Arbor Co-founder Chris Jensen after they had been blown over by strong Hawaiian winds. This board is representative of everything Arbor stands for, and after Chris Jensen passed it was made in memoriam. For the true Arbor loyalists who want the all mountain performance perfection of the Element Camber this snowboard is an exceptional treat. 


Key Features

Board Type: All Mountain

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: 6/10 (1 = soft, 10 = stiff)

A mid flex that is versatile enough to ride the whole 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.

Knucklehead Tip - A powerful and versatile shape for peak to parking lot riding with a bit of extra punch for powder.

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: Double Barrel Core

The most versatile core from Arbor, the Double Barrel Core is made from Poplar reinforced with two Bamboo struts running down the centre of the board for lightweight longitudinal pop and easier turns.

Mixed Glassing - A Triax and Biax layup that provides superior versatility over standard Triax or Biax layups.

Base: Sintered+ Base

A high molecular weight base that provides extra durability and speed.

Additional Features:

Koa Power Ply Topsheet - This creates the style Arbor is known for, but isn't just for looks. Power Ply is a sustainably sourced layer of wood or bamboo that acts like an added layer of fibreglass due to a labor intensive process that results in increased performance, finish quality, board life, and less reliance on man made materials.

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.

Factory Tuned - This snowboard is factory de-tuned at the tip and tail, so you can go riding straight away.
