ARBOR CADENCE 2017 WOMENS SNOWBOARD
Built for the freestyle-minded shredder that rides the entire mountain, the Arbor Cadence snowboard is a versatile board that'll take you to your happy place be it the terrain park, an urban rail session or the backcountry booter you just built. The full rocker profile makes soft snow navigation a breeze while eliminating edge catches, and a soft flex means you can take your press and butter game to outer space. The Arbor Cadence snowboard just wants to have fun.
SYSTEM ROCKER: This rocker deck's design eliminates the leverage required to release and re-engage a snowboard's outside contact points. In translation, riders get a seamless turn initiation, better float in powder, and more fluid spins and slides.
GRIP-TECH: Grip Tech is 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, more ergonomic way to grip the snow when additional control is needed. The extra contacts also form pivot zones that make turning easier and more natural. Grip Tech effectively moves a board’s primary interface with the snow underfoot, allowing us to deliver designs that don’t lose performance as we lift leading sections of the effective edge from the snow for a less grabby ride. Those designs include rocker, or camber with our new Uprise Fenders.
PARABOLIC PROFILING: The System utilizes rocker and camber profiles created using the parabolic arc, which progressively reduces the amount of rocker or camber toward the tip and tail of a snowboard, creating nice low profiles. On our System Rocker designs, this ensures that the outside contact points are close enough to the snow to engage when maximum performance is required – higher speeds, fully loaded turns, and bigger landings. On System Camber designs, this guarantees that the outside contact points do not dig too far into the snow, creating a cleaner, less catchy performance that makes it easier to turn, spin, and ride fast.
PANHEAD TIPS: Classic top-to-bottom freestyle performance.
SINGLE MALT WOOD CORE: Arbor's standard wood core, made from 100% sustainably grown poplar for highly reliable return and long-lasting durability.
BIAXIAL 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 RAILS: 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.
EXTRUDED BASE: A tough, user-friendly extruded base that delivers lighter weight performance.
ASH POWER PLY TOPSHEET: The Power Ply works like an added layer of fiberglass. During construction, the natural wood or bamboo fibers are turned into a composite layer inside the board.
TRUE TWIN SHAPE: Symmetrical in all aspects, true twin boards are ideal for freestyle riding environments.
