Built for riding real mountains.
For riders who need a big-mountain gun capable of holding an edge on sketchy steeps and providing precision in technical terrain, there's the Arbor A-Frame Snowboard. Traditional camber and a snappy wood core give you the drive you need to charge steep lines and carve powerful turns, and the directional shape keeps you afloat in the neck-deep stuff.
Traditional camber provides unmatched pop and rebound for a snappy, lively feel, while a set-back stance keeps your nose afloat on deep days. High-Load Glassing features a triax glass layup for response and control in scary chutes and knife-edge spines, and carbon A-Frames extending from under your feet to the contacts points provide locked-in edge hold while carving. The sintered base absorbs wax well and resists damage from rocks and stumps hidden beneath the snow.
A mix of renewable paulownia and FSC-certified poplar wood makes the core lightweight and lively, fast-growing bamboo is used in place of petroleum-based plastics for the sidewalls to deliver crisp return and impact durability, and the Power Ply sustainably-sourced wood topsheet replaces plastic to not only make it poppier, but more environmentally-friendly as well.

Large and in charge
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
This board is awesome. I took it out for one day early season only riding groomers but it was wicked. I felt parallel to the snow when I was carving, only on the A-Frame
A big stick
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
A big stick for when speaking softly isn't enough. This is my 2nd A-frame. The last I just had split board converted. I'm a true believer that a big mountain stick should be traditional camber. These things lock into a carve and hold it until you're ready to go the other way. They have a ton of pop on transitions, and they dig hard into the snow. Deep, steep, you name it, this board won't disappoint. Plus they are beautiful enough to hang on your wall just to look at. Arbor outdid themselves with this year's models.
