Just don't get banned for the season.
Whether you're sticking with the park, crashing the woods off the sides of runs looking for fallen trees and pillow lines, or ripping down cruisers at illegal speeds, the Arbor Blacklist Snowboard makes it hard for you to fly under the radar. This mid-wide rocker board with a medium-soft flex and a true-twin shape seems to attract attention—welcome and unwelcome—wherever it roams.
- Parabolic Rocker features more rocker from the center to the binding mounts with less rocker to the tip and tail to ensure solid contact during turn initiation while allowing a skate-like ride
- Wood Power Ply topsheet is made from multiple layers of wood veneer instead of fiberglass to reduce weight, cut back on nasty chemicals, and add pop and durability
- Grip Tech tri-radial sidecut design creates additional contact points under foot for enhanced edge control that complements the rocker profile
- Rhythm Rails sidewalls are a blend of ABS and urethane for just the right balance of flex and durability
- Sumo Stance delivers an increased stance range so you can ride a smaller board without being uncomfortable
- Medicine Core utilizes sustainably-produced poplar wood to provide a playful, durable, and powerful ride
- Rocket Base features wax infused into the highly dense material for ludicrous speeds

Midwide done right
I am in love with this board, from the time I read about it on BA?s page until I put it back on my wall today. It is amazing how one board can change what you think. Before this board I was all about NS RC tech and loved riding the evo. Now while I still love RC and my SL I don?t think I will ride the evo again (ok I will but waiting till the park opens up). The Blacklist is just way to playful and stable as a park board to overlook. It is like I stepped back on my old k2 comet and everything just clicked when I rode. I could not believe how stable the board was over the other park boards I?ve owned at speed. While I could feel the split second longer it took to change edges. It never once made me feel like I was not in control. I was really torn over getting this board or the NS 2012 Evo and I am glad I got both so I could see what one I liked the best. Blacklist won cause at the end of the day it just felt better, as a bonus the blacklist comes pre detuned tip and tail wish the evo did.
The only time being on a blacklist is a good thing
If you are looking for a budget Back country shred stick look no further. The blacklist has benefited from something the industry calls trickle down technology. This thing has all of the features that Arbors high end boards had a year ago. It turns out they haven't changed them much over that year. So what you are getting here is a tried and true tested design that RIPS. Don't look at this as a budget board (because honestly at 420 bucks its not exactly cheap) Look at it as a high end board at a lower end price, Arbor doesn't cut corners in their design process to bring the price point down, instead they take advantage of the massive amount of R&D they have put into their other boards, and pass it down to the blacklist. If you want to hike up the backside of the hill, shred that nasty bowl of powder, then take a lift over to the resort and play in the park or the trees all day, this is the stick for you. It cant be stopped, the rocker design with grip tech by arbor is among the best. The overall build quality is right up there as well. And its an arbor board. You cant go wrong.
