The Arbor Cask is a short length, stiff, camber snowboard with a large surface area and easy manoeuvrability. Ideal for intermediate to advanced level riders looking for a fun board to surf powder - from your first untouched run to your last rally through the chop.
The Cask was made for the longest powder days - from the first untouched line to the very last run of the day.
A Tapered Directional board is the best for all-mountain and freeriding. The nose is longer and wider than the tail, giving you plenty of control in any terrain, and the stance is set back to help you float above the pow. With PowTech, Arbor eliminated the front two GripTech contact points and moved the board’s primary interface with the snow under your back foot, allowing to deliver powder specific performance driven by the power of your back leg.
The camber profile consists of only one positive preload from nose to tail. This classic profile offers high stability, good edge control and a lot of pop. The Uprise Fenders system pull the outside contact zones off the snow. This means that the edges at the contact points on Nose and Tail are angled upwards by 3°. This results in a playful feeling without catching an edge
The medium-stiff flex (8/10) provides you with a lively board that allows you to stay in control at all speeds and pop over everything.
The Highland II Core is a lighter, more responsive version of our FSC Certified Highland Core known for highly reliable return and long-lasting durability. A newly developed screening process has allowed Arbor to hand-select the very lightest and highest quality paulownia from their sourcing partners. The Mixed Glassing provides a Triax over Biax fibreglass lay-up that’s best for versatility: pow, backcountry, groomers, jumps and more. The topsheet is made from sustainably sourced ash wood and is called Ash Powerply construction. The natural grain creates the style Arbor has been known for since they launched twenty years ago. This technology does not only look good but also improves the strength, durability, and return of a snowboard. Made from Castor Bean Oil, this eco Bio Plastic Topsheet is extremely durable and water repellent. A 360–degree, 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. The sintered base is an industry standard for quality base materials. The sintered base has a higher molecular weight that provides added durability and speed.
Arbor is seriously committed to building ridable and wearable products made from the best possible materials. Taking the environment into account along the way, they set in place "Returning Roots". A program which helps to protect and restore forests and gives back to the planet, the people and places that make it possible for us all to skate, snowboard, and surf. Materials, shaping, art, and design come together beautifully in every aspect of Arbors handmade products.
