Press Release from Marketing Farmer

Venice, CA - November 19, 2013 - Arbor is proud to announce that their 2014 snowboard line has won multiple industry awards. The awards continue to validate their System Technology and solidify their boards a place among the most recognized in the industry for stand-out performance and ground breaking technology.

These award winning boards are equipped with Arbor’s rocker platform “The System.” The System was developed to provide riders with an amazing level of edge control in a design that preserves the full range of true-rocker benefits. This design includes a parabolic rocker design, Grip-Tech edge contact points and twin shaping. The resulting combination provides the float and playfulness of a rocker without sacrificing the edge hold and control found in traditional camber.

“We’re really stoked on the awards we picked up on the 2014 line,” says Arbor Snowboard’s co-founder, Bob Carlson. “They reinforce all the design and production moves we’ve made of late, and continue to show that our System design is one of the best options out there.”
