The Hemlock is perfect for park laps, urban assaults, and all–skill–level resort shredding. The exclusive X–Drive Baseplate transfers rider input to a snowboard so effectively that Arbor was able to create a softer freestyle, all–mountain design that delivers surprisingly responsive performance and comfort.
The asymmetrical highback with a 5° pre-rotation provides you with a more ergonomic feel and freedom of movement. The adjustable aluminum heelcup and forward lean adjustment make sure you can fine tune your binding to the exact way you like it.
The X-Drive baseplate design enhances performance thanks to the structural X shape that delivers pressure anywhere on the binding towards the four contact points, improving rider input. The TPE rubber Outsole integrates with the X–Drive design, and sits between the binding and a rider’s snowboard. The Outsole diffuses high–frequency chatter, while providing rebound and cushion for high–impact landings.
Arbor bindings feature flexible straps that will fit snuggly around any boot, while the rigid construction ensures your binding will stay responsive. The Wire Core Adjuster strap lets your ankle strap drop out of the way, for easy binding entry. The stainless steel wire inside ensures that your strap will not stretch out or break, no matter how many times you bend it.
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.
