Product details

The Foundation was designed to deliver amazing value and is the ideal platform to comfortably cruise and progress your snowboarding across the whole resort. Built on Arbor’s System Rocker platform to provide an incredibly forgiving, easy to control, catch-free experience. The Foundation is perfect for improving your turns and building confidence all over the mountain.

Camber Profile 

System Rocker – If you want a surfy ride, natural float, buttery turns and spins, and catch-free tracking across the snow - all with highly reliable edge hold - then Arbor's System Rocker shapes are for you. System Rocker progressively reduces the amount of rocker toward the tip and tail and allows the outside contacts to easily engage when max edge hold is needed.

 
Flex

4/10 (1=Soft, 10=Stiff)

Core

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.

Shape

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. 

Laminates

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.

Sidewalls

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.

Base

Extruded Base – A tough, user-friendly extruded base that delivers ease of repair.

Edges

Recycled Steel Edges – Highly durable, recycled steel edges embody Arbor's key values: quality and sustainability.

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.

Additional Features

Bio Resin – Bio-Resin is 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.

Wend Natural Wax – All Arbor snowboards hit the shop floor ready to ride with Wend Natural Wax.
