Is there anyway to find a 2008 Arbor Element (161)?
Hey Everybody! I would like to get a 165.5 Element; would it fit an 11.5 boot?
yes it will...the whole width to boot size argumet is just a technicality and never presents a real problem...unless you are size 15 or something, you can ride almost any standard with board
OMG I love this deck. I haven't been this excited about a new board since my Craig Kelly Mystery Air- does that date me? This thing is a handler in all conditions and the best looking girl on the hill. BTW I weigh 210 without gear and ride the 165.
Write your question here...I'm 6'2" weigh 190lbs. and in good physical condition. An advanced rider. Steeps, trees and some jumping are what I do the most. I'm interested in the element, the only issue is the length of your available boards. Is the 165 too long.
im 6' 185 i ride a 5 year old 163 element. its a great board and it does well in most conditions. most of my time is spent in trees and powder. for me 165 wouldn't make any difference but if your used to a considerably shorter board like a 157 that extra 8cm might take some getting used to.
I have had an Arbor Element for the past few years now. Returning with the new one just keeps it going. Definitely a necessity to keep in your quiver. I've taken this from Alaska to Austria and it has never let me down, from powder to park. Besides, why do you want to look like everyone else on the mountain with boards that look the same, be an individual, stand out, and get one of these, you will truly be impressed with it's versatility.
I didn't think it was possible to ride a board that performs this well. I was in CO for a couple of weeks, and in any condition, the board just amazed me. As far as I know there is nothing out there that the element can't handle. It's stupid fast and the edge hold is just rediculous. I tried to wash it out and it just wouldn't let go. The board is weightless in the pow and initiating turns is effortless. All you have to do is think about turning and it just about does the rest. It also has plenty of pop so its ready for any launch you can throw at it. When it comes time to land the control is 100%. Simply put the board on the snow and like I said before, it just about does the rest. If you end up in a park, have no worries, you'll be able to stomp it. However, if park is all you do, this may not be the board for you. Not that it can't handle it(I would just hate to see an element stuck in the park all its life). It wants the big lines, the steeps and drops, and if your feelin squirly, it loves to fly down the mountain at mach. Not to mention it's a sick looking board. I received countless compliments. I could go on forever about this board. Yeah, it's that good. If you're into all of the above, try the element. Worth every penny. THANK YOU ARBOR!!!!!!!!!
Just rode the Element in Breck for 4 days straight and loved it!! In fact I almost don't want to give it too many compliments because it was nice having a board that I only seen 1 other person on the mountain have. This is the first time I've ever gotten random comments from people on the lifts and just sitting there strapping in about how sweet a board I had. Now for the performance, GREAT!! I love how it handled everything from the groom trails and small park action to the 5 inches of powder we had. Has a little more flex then my previous Arbor Draft that I was a big fan of. If you like to do a little bit of everything on the mountain then this is your board.
i love this board, period.
i think the guy above me with the a, b, a, b, select start is gonna start a war playing contra III, but in the meantime i am sure we are both digging out boards on the slopes.
i had a straight park board, ride dh, and obviously it didnt perform too well on the double blacks. i do agree this board is less of a master on the park, but with that said it rules the mountain and i can still rip a few tricks in the park with ease.
Riding this board is like entering a cheat code against the mountain. strap in, A, B, A, B, select, start; and you're off. For starters, the base is wicked fast. You will read reviews that say this thing cooks, but in truth it doesn't cook; it roasts. In terms of flex, one can ride down the mountain in a back butter a hold it at speeds that are unreal. It welcomes charades, and willlingly takes on the shape of a banana. The edge hold is supurb, in fact I dare you to try to get this sled to loose edge even at fanatical speeds. I double dog dare you. It simply can not be done. Even more suprising, is that with all this, Arbor found a way to eliminate the effort needed to initiate, control, and land the smallest jibbers to the mind-altering overhangs; i other words, just like the distinguished Dr. Pepper, this boards pop comes complete with 23 lucious flavors. To be true, one pitfall is that this brute is a lil bit thin in the waist, so clowns need not apply. No larger than a 11 or 12 (and thats pushing it). This translates that the Element holds no P.h.D. in parks; i.e. boxes, rails, ect.. It will get the job done, just not as elegantly as a true park piece. So If you throw all these ingredients into the fire, mix in a crystal clear natural wood topsheet,(in your choice of Koa or the ellusive banboo) and you have a board; nay, a weapon with which to slay more mountains than the gods themselves.
It feels good going to the hill and knowing you have an unfair advantage over everybody else by riding the Element. Not only good on big mountain but performs very well in the park!
