The Arbor Element is one of the most complete all-mountain intermediate boards on our wall. It comes in either System Camber or System Rocker, so there's an option for everyone. A twin platform with an elongated nose make this a very well rounded and capable board for the rider who does a little of everything or the rider who is still exploring all that snowboarding as to offer. Take it for some park laps, tree runs, or rip some groomers, the Element can do it all. The Element is the first board in the Arbor line to get their patent Powerply wood topsheet. The Powerply is what makes an Arbor board unique from all the others. Utilizing the benefits and personality of the different woods they use to get a performance unlike others. The Element uses the Ash Powerply which gives it an improved snap and power above the Formula as well as a smooth and damp ride.

Resort Mountain Twin
From contact point to contact point the nose and tail are mirrored from the center of the board in both shape and flex, but the nose is a little longer past the contact point to offer better weight distribution in softer snow. Twins of any kind allow you to ride in either direction a little easier. Ideal for freestyle minded riding and perfect for anyone, beginners included, to dial in riding switch for all mountain dominance.
System Camber (Parabolic Camber)
Arbor use a unique shaping technique that replaces the single radius arc found in traditional camber, with a more advanced parabolic profile. The design blends five separate radii to create a parabolic arc, which gradually reduces the amount of camber toward the tip and tail. In the System Camber shapes, the design makes the leading edge less aggressive for smoother performance. The System Camber shapes are for riders who want a highly responsive ride, crisp on-edge performance, and more pop for carving and ollies. Effortless true-camber performance across all types of snow, and during turns, spins, and landings.
A tri–radial sidecut design that is not blended. Natural shaping intersections, that in the past were eliminated, have been transformed into heel and toe contact points that provide a direct and more ergonomic way to grip the snow when additional control is needed.
360° Fully Wrapped Sidewalls
Fully wrapped sidewall that 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.
Hand Dyed Ash Powerply
The wood Powerply is a natural topsheet and is what makes an Arbor snowboard ride like an Arbor snowboard. Bringing the board to life with the natural spring and liveliness of the specific woods used. The ash Powerply is also notable for it's ability to be hand dyed making the Arbor snowboards look like the Arbor snowboards we all love.
A combination of a triax weave and a biax weave lay–up, providing flex where you want it with snap and stability where you need it.
3° Uprise Fenders
The 3° uprise fenders on select camber models help you roll into your turn smoother and with less fight. They reduce friction at the contact point without sacrificing edge-hold, so you are less likely to catch an edge.
