Developed in collaboration with Steve Klassen, owner of Mammoth's Wave Rave snowboard shop and five time winner of the Verbier Extreme freeride contest, the Arbor Steepwater Snowboard is a directional, traditional camber board for freeride purists riding the steepest, gnarliest terrain on the planet. The board's extra stiff flex allows riders to bomb steeps, send huge cliffs, and charge through variable snow conditions, while traditional camber and a relatively narrow waist deliver powerful edgehold and fluid edge to edge transitions through tight chutes and treacherous terrain. Furthermore, the Steepwater has a large radius sidecut for straight line stability, and it's slightly tapered for added float in deep, untracked powder. Continuing Arbor's dedication to craftsmanship, the Steepwater features a Power Ply topsheet with premium burled eucalyptus for a striking finish, not to mention enhanced energy return. Inside this hard charging ride, you'll find a blend of paulownia and poplar for robust strength and durability. Adding torsional rigidity to the board, triax fiberglass ensures maximum energy transfer without unwanted flex when you're riding at scary fast speeds. Additionally, you'll find the board's extruded base is easy to repair when you thrash it on rocks and stumps hidden under the snow.
