You may have earned your stripes in the park, but you're going to need a more aggressive board like the Arbor Coda Snowboard to let your skills shine on the rest of the mountain. System rocker, a medium flex, and a twin shape keep you afloat and in control as you replace park jumps with backcountry booters, rails with log jibs, and crowded groomers with tight tree runs through bottomless powder.
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 technical terrain. 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.
Took the 162 for a couple laps at the resort, super impressed with this board, felt like a had a 154 underfoot, its so light, and the bamboo core really does give it a S#*$load of pop! really aggressive responsive board. fun to rip.
this board shreds. the base is super fast, it holds an edge and has tons of pop. couldn't ask for more. AMAZING!!!
