Arbor Formula Snowboard 2012
An accessible all-mountain rocker design that's exceptionally easy to ride; the Formula is ideal to learn and grow with, a confidence building cruiser that was created to provide you with the perfect blend of affordability, technology and performance.
2011-2012 Arbor Formula Men's Snowboard Key Features:
Parabolic Rocker - Arbor uses a rocker profile based on the parabolic arc; a shape that allows Arbor to gradually reduce the amount of rocker toward the tip and tail. This ensures that the outside contact points are close enough to the snow to re-engage when maximum edge control is needed. This rocker profile provides an additional layer of on-demand edge control without having to sacrifice any true-rocker performance.
Grip Tech - This sidecut design creates four additional contact points under foot for significantly improved and more direct edge control. The new contacts also create heel and toe pivot points that make turning faster and more efficient. Grip-Tech enables Arbor to offer a "True-Rocker" profile with powerful edge control, and thus preserves the full range of associated performance benefits. Grip-Tech also allows riders with large feet, up to a US Men's size 12, to ride standard width shapes.
Mission II Core - The core of the board is built using a high-density composite that's made with 30% reclaimed wood fiber and reinforced with sustainably produced poplar inlay, for improved freeride performance.
Medium Shadow Flex - A slightly tapered thinning of the core profile between the bindings, improves turn and spin initiation, tracking in mixed conditions, on the flats, and during landings, and performance on rails, boxes and jibs.
Rhythm Rails - Made of an ABS-urethane blend, Arbor’s Rhythm Rails deliver durability, an acoustically damp ride, and solid edge performance.
Toro Tips - The nose and tail of the snowboard have a drawn out design to support on-mountain and backcountry riding with deeper snow performance.
Butter Glassing - A biax over biax lay-up that’s designed for park and street inspired all-mountain and urban riding.
Fusion Base - A tough, user-friendly extruded base that’s light and easy to repair.
