The board that launched the Arbor brand.
The Element was an impressive ATV from its inception, and Arbor's flagship snowboard maintains its rank as the most versatile top to bottom mountain twin in their line. Conquer all terrain with confidence on this year's Element. Arbor's System Camber will provide added stability and pop for a more aggressive ride.
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.
Grip Tech creates added heel and toe contact points that dramatically improve edge control on snow and ice. The design creates a more ergonomic and direct connection to the snow for substantially improved handling and response time. The added contact points make it possible for Arbor to offer Rocker designs that hold an amazing edge, and Camber designs that provide cleaner edge performance.
The edge control created by Arbor's System platform allows Arbor to add Fenders that slightly lift a board's leading edge off the snow. This dramatically improves turning, spins, float, and tracking on cambered snowboards.
