The Foundation is Arbor's starting place: a quality-made, entry-level snowboard with style. It's the perfect board for riders who are want to take their snowboarding to the next level and are looking for great value. Our signature combination of Parabolic Rocker and Grip Tech contact points allows you to easily transition in and out of turns while maintaining solid edge control in any terrain of sustainably sourced Poplar and Paulownia. The Foundation is sealed in with Recycled Steel Edges, held together by Entropy Bio-Resin, and finished off with a factory wax using Wend Natural Wax.
Shape + Flex
Construction + Core
Grip-Tech: 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.
Spoonhead Tip: All-mountain function in a range of snow conditions.
FSC® Certified Highland Core: Arbor's most versatile core, constructed with a 1:2 Poplar to Paulownia blend for super lightweight performance, durability, and return.
Base + Edges
Extruded Base: A tough, user-friendly extruded base that delivers lighter-weight performance.
Recycled Steel Edges: Our highly durable, recycled steel edges embody two of our Arbor’s key values: Quality and Sustainability.
Recycled ABS: When a plastic alternative is unavailable, as in the case of ABS sidewalls, Arbor does its best to opt for a recycled material to improve the sustainability of our products.
360 Degree Sidewall: 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.
