Only the best for the best. Frank April has built his legacy with grit and grind fostered by the street features prominent in his hometown, Canada’s jib mecca - Quebec. His love for freestyle snowboarding has led him all over the world, sizing up some of the biggest and most technical tricks to ever be done.
System Camber – If you want a highly responsive ride, crisp on-edge performance, and more pop for carving and ollies - all with smoother camber performance - then System Camber shapes are for you. The camber progressively reduces toward the tip and tail, making the leading edge less aggressive for cleaner on-snow performance.
Flex: 5 (1 Soft - 10 Stiff)
Flip Tips – Increased ramping on the nose and tail of the snowboard create the perfect platform for catch free nollies and fakie ollies.
Highland Core – Arbor's most versatile core, constructed with a 1:2 blend of poplar and paulownia, for super light weight performance, durability, and return.
Biax Glassing – A biax over biax lay-up that's designed for park and street inspired all-mountain riding. Also creates a good platform for learning.
360° Fully Wrapped Sidewalls – Eliminates the need for tip fill, while effectively tying the whole snowboard together. A technology that delivers incredibly tight tolerances for improved board life and durability.
Sintered Plus Base – Arbor's sintered plus base is mid-density material that demonstrates increased speed and durability while maintaining the ease of repair.
Factory Tuned – Arbor detunes the tip and tail contact points on all of their snowboards for a catch-free ride before they leave the factory.
Bio Plastic Topsheet – One of the materials Arbor uses in the quest to eliminate harmful petroleum based plastics from the production cycle. Made from castor bean oil, this eco-topsheet is extremely durable and water repellent.
Carbonized Bamboo Powerply
Bio Resin – Starting fresh with 2020, all Powerplys and R.A.P. Topless Tech veneers are made with Bio-Resin, a replacement for traditional petroleum based resin that doesn't affect performance or usability. The ingredients that go into it are sourced as co-products or waste products of other industrial processes and are manufactured employing green chemistry techniques that reduce the carbon footprint of the material by up to 40% when compared to its petroleum based equivalent.
