Deliver a roundhouse straight to the mountain's toughest face.
Kick the mountain's ass on the Arbor Roundhouse Snowboard. Mountain System rocker with Grip Tech provides crazy float in pow without relinquishing control on hardpack, and Power Ply topsheet packs an extra punch by replacing plastic with wood to boost pop. Of course, you're not going to physically hurt the mountain since Arbor uses sustainably-harvested wood and environmentally conscious materials in their boards to reduce impact on the planet, so don't feel too bad.
System rocker uses several different design elements to provide true rocker performance while maintaining an incredible amount of edge hold and pop. It features a parabolic arc that is more rockered between the bindings and less rockered at the tip and tail to give it float in powder and a catch-free feeling on hardpack, while making turn initiation fluid and easy. The Grip Tech sidecut uses two additional contact points along each edge to allow for reliable edge hold on a rocker profile. A Power Ply sustainably-sourced wood topsheet replaces plastic to not only make it poppier, but more environmentally-friendly as well.
A triax-over-biax fiberglass lay-up gives it a responsive feel for greater precision and control in situations where you can't afford to make a mistake. Lightweight FSC-certified poplar is used in the core for a smooth flex and lively feel, and dual strips made from fast-growing bamboo running down the center maximize pop. Rhythm sidewalls feature a blend of urethane and ABS to absorb vibrations for a smooth ride, and the sintered base absorbs wax well and resists damage from rocks and stumps hidden beneath the snow.

Bought this as a gift for a big guy
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
This is the review in their words. "I am 6'4 and weigh 200 with all my gear on. I was torn between the 162 or the 166, ended up going with the 166, I shred at Snowbird in Utah so primarily Powder/Big mountain riding,It is super bomber riding Pow and Ripping groomers! I feel like it is a bit large for me but I am getting used to the size and find I have no problem making tight maneuvers and sending spins and jibs. I really like the rocker system and the grip tech sides
