Description

The mountain will cower.

The Arbor A-Frame Snowboard doesn’t pussyfoot around. This big-mountain gun arcs into turns, threads the needle through trees, and stays stable at high speeds. Whether you have a Jackson season pass or just ride your home mountain like you do, this stiff, directional snowboard won’t let you down.
  • Tri-radial sidecut for tight, quick turns and high-speed stability
  • Carbon struts from inserts to contact points increase torsional flex at the tip/tail for better edge feel
  • Hi-Load Glassing provides a stiff flex for quick turn initiation, tracking in mixed conditions, and high speed control
  • Rocket sintered base for durability, speed, and wax absorption
  • ABS and urethane sidewalls for durability and edge hold
  • Shaman core is Arbor�s lightest
  • Artist Cody Gewertz designed the graphics on the structural wood topsheet

hi my name is scott. i am 5'8" 165. i ride a custom x by burton 160. love it but want to step up to a bigger board. i charge steeps hard and love trees. not sure if 164 is big enough but wonder if over 168 is too big. want the new arbor a frame maybe in 168. thanks

Hey Scott, I just bought the A-frame this year. I got the big boy (170) I am 6'2 and 225 lbs. This is a great size board for me. I absolutly love it! (see my review above) The next size down is (166). I know that does not seem like a great jump from your 165 but on the Arbor you will still see a big difference over the performance of your burton. I would suggest you give the 166 a try. Either way, you will love the A-frame. It's a really fast board!

This deck rocks!

Picked up the 166. Mainly for big mountain riding..
Loved the way it felt in bounds at my local area. Flex pattern is so smooth - it rides like a Lincoln Continental..

The comments on the lift line were pretty crazy... People love the way this deck looks. I tell them it rides as good as it looks..

Great Board! Pricy but well worth it!

I just bought the Arbor A-Frame (170) a couple of weeks ago. Just in time to take it out west to Jackson Hole, Wy, to break it in. I was thrilled with it! My first day on it at Jackson Hole Mtn was good. Took a few runs to get used to the extra length but after that I was flying! The snow was not great but the board was. It was cutting through the crusty, ungroomed snow like a champ. I was amazed at how far I was going on some of the long, flat traverses. I would have been dead in the water and unstraping to walk on my old board but the A-frame would just fly right through the flat to the next good section.
The next day I took it to Grand Targhee where they had about 2ft of fresh powder. Again, the board performed flawlessly. I moved the bindings back a bit to put a little more weight in the rear. This kept me on top of the powder tearing it up all day!
Yesterday I got to test it out on the east coast groomers at Loon Mt, NH. Once again it performed brilliantly. This is a very fast board but it doesn't lack any control. No problem leaning hard into full speed carving turns. It grabs and holds an edge perfectly. No slipping out.
This board has already proved itself to me in all the snow conditions I am likely to encounter, crusty ungroomed, fluffy powder, and packed powder groomed. It is the perfect all mountain big stick! Love it! Can't wait to outfit it with my new flow nxt frx bindings next week. No more sitting down to strap in!

Great Board!  Pricy but well worth it!

I just started riding last year and need to buy a new board. I mostly mountain ride, but venture into the park every once and a while as well. Do you think this board would be a good fit?

Responded on

It'll be great on the slopes, but won't perform well in the park.

Arbor A-Frame

I've been riding Arbor for about 5 years now. This board GREAT for serious freeriders and ninjas.

Is this board wide enough for size 12 feet ?

Responded on

This board is pretty narrow at the waist for a size 12 coming in at 248mm. Maybe check out the Nitro Blacklight. It is quick edge to edge with an extremely fast base. It's waist width is at least 256mm depending on length and can comfortably accommodate bigger foot while getting the performance equal to or greater then an A-Frame. Hope this helps.

Responded on

If you went 162 or longer, its marginally doable. I would want some Burton boots with the Shrinkage tech or some F series Salomons to try to minimize the toe/heel overhang. I wear an 11.5 and wouldn't go narrower than a 254 waist width (without some footprint reducing boots to go along with it) especially if I am focusing on powder and bigger mountain stuff. The Abacus is Arbor's wide board for Big Mountain, and the Roundhouse is their wide all-mountain but could be pretty slow edge to edge because it is WIDE. Hope that helps!

Whats a good set of all mountain/freeride...

Whats a good set of all mountain/freeride bindings to go with the A-frame? Haven't bought bindings in years and need some ideas.

Responded on

union makes the strongest, built to last, stiff bindings. I have this board in a 162cm; love it. I'm a surfer-no park riding, lots of trees, cliffs, and groom cruising when there's no powder

Responded on

Yeah, Union Force bindings would be a good place to start. Or Burton Cartels if you are riding Burton boots. Those are both solid no-nonsense choices. You can spend more, and go stiffer if you want, but you cannot go wrong with a pair of Forces. Or Cartels, I think, but some people vehemently hate Burton these days...

Responded on

I'm riding with Flow bindings on both my boards. Takes a few days to get them dialed in, but they're super-fast on and off, which is great for hiking. Not good for heliboarding, because they take up more vertical space in the basket, but how much heliboarding do you do in a year?

Comfortable, responsive, fast.

Write your question here...does the arbor a frame come in a 155 or 156 cm sizing??? thank you.

Responded on

No, this is a long, powder hungry big mountain board. 158 is the smallest it comes in.

Responded on

You probably need to look to the Arbor Coda. Wake is right, the sizing for the A-Frame is set up for big mountain freeriders. The Coda is more all mountain and there is a 155 that might be right for you. Too bad the clean graphics/ woodwork are only on the A-frame.
