Bryan's Iguchi's dream board has come to life as the Arbor Annex Camber Snowboard, the most aggressive of his models. Stiff flexing, light, and super responsive, the Annex is not the board for someone that wants to spend their day on laid back groomer runs. This thing likes full gas all the time. Where most boards have a limit on how fast they can go comfortably, the Annex seems to have no governor. Chatter and chop have met their match! The Carbon Vector Net inlay wraps the core and provides powerful torsional rebound and unmatched response in all conditions. The elongated nose and tapered outline coupled with the full camber backbone and offset 3D fenders make the board ride as good as it looks.

Camber / Rocker Style
Arbor Camber System
The Camber System design offers a poppy ride with crisp, fully engaged performance.
The System is Arbor's principal design platform. Arbor developed The System to improve true rocker and camber designs by maintaining the integrity of both platforms without fusing either into a hybrid design. Their belief is that hybridization sacrifices some of the inherent benefits of each design philosophy. The System is an advanced rocker and camber design that improves upon the benefits of each platform depending on the needs of each rider. Whether you prefer the crisp, fully engaged performance of camber or the surfy, butter feel of rocker, The System creates a clean, effective connection to the snow, delivering a smooth ride with enhanced control.
The System is a blending of two technologies: Grip Tech and Parabolic Profiling.
Grip Tech is a tri-radial sidecut design that is not "blended." Natural shaping intersections, that in the past were eliminated, have been transformed into heel and toe contact points that provide a direct, more ergonomic way to grip the snow when additional control is needed. The extra contacts also form pivot zones that make turning easier and more natural. Grip Tech effectively moves a board's primary interface with the snow underfoot, allowing for designs that don't lose performance as they lift leading sections of the effective edge from the snow for a less grabby ride. Those designs include rocker, or camber with the new Uprise Fenders. Uprise Fenders pull the outside contact zones off the snow with angled 3º risers on all Camber System designs.
The System utilizes rocker or camber profiles created using the parabolic arc, which progressively reduces the amount of rocker or camber toward the tip and tail of a snowboard. This creates low, more effective profiles. On Arbor Rocker System designs, parabolic profiling ensures the outside contact points are close enough to the snow to engage when maximum performance is required- higher speeds, fully loaded turns, and bigger landings. On Camber System designs, this guarantees the outside contact points do not dig too far into the snow, creating a cleaner, less catchy performance that makes it easier to turn, spin, and ride fast.
2 cm Taper
A shaping technique that narrows the profile of the snowboard towards the rear contact points. Tapered snowboards will have a wider nose and narrower tail, allowing the tail of the board to sink in deeper snow creating natural float and cleaner tracking.
FSC Certified Double Barrel Core
Poplar to Paulownia blend with bamboo stringers running down the center of the board for added longitudinal pop and unmatched board control.
Inlaid Curley Maple Powerply Stringer
A specialized and highly intricate die cutting process allows Arbor to combine the natural grain of multiple species of wood into singular, sophisticated Powerply topsheet.
One of the materials used in Arbor's quest to eliminate harmful petroleum based plastics from the production cycle. Made from Castor Bean Oil, this eco-topsheet is extremely durable and water repellent.
A triax over biax lay-up that's best for versatility: pow, backcountry, groomers, jumps, and more.
Cross Vector Netting
Arbor's newly developed Carbon Vector Net reinforcements create evenly distributed torsional power and accelerated response from tip to tail.
5° Nose / 3° Tail
Entropy Bio Resin
Starting with the 2020 line Arbor is proud to announce that all Powerplys and R.A.P. Topless Tech veneers will be made with Entropy Bio-Resin, a replacement for traditional petroleum based resin that doesn't affect performance or usability. The ingredients that go into Entropy Bio-Resin are sourced as co-products or waste products of other industrial processes and are manufactured employing green chemistry techniques that reduce the carbon footprint of the material by up to 40% (when compared to its petroleum based equivalent).
Three Year Warranty
360 Degree Fully Wrapped Sidewalls
A 360-degree, fully wrapped sidewall that eliminates the need for tip fill, while effectively tying the whole snowboard together. A technology that delivers incredibly tight tolerances for improved board life and durability.
When a plastic alternative is unavailable, as in the case of ABS sidewalls, Arbor opts for a recycled material to improve the sustainability of their products.
Recycled Steel Edges
Arbor's highly durable, recycled steed edges embody two of Arbor's key values: quality and sustainability.
A higher molecular weight, sintered base that provides added durability and speed.
Wend Natural Wax
All Arbor snowboards hit the shop floor ready to ride with Wend Natural Wax.
Arbor detunes the tip and tail contact points on all of their snowboards for a catch-free ride before they leave the factory.
