Quick overview

The Annex is a most technical creation to stem from the ongoing collaboration between Bryan Iguchi and Arbor Snowboards. As Bryan’s riding progressed to a state where he spends most of his time riding big-mountain lines, he needed a directional evolution of the fundamental performance built into the Iguchi Pro Camber. Built on Arbor's System Camber technology, the Annex features a longer, drawn out nose with additional taper and a stub tail. The combination of these three features allow the board to float through powder effortlessly with increased power and drive when setting an edge.

Details

PROFILE

  • The Camber System
    Arbor's System Camber shapes are for riders who want: A highly responsive ride, crisp on-edge performance, and more pop for carving and ollie., Effortless true-camber performance across all types of snow, and during turns, spins, and landings.

  • Parabolic Profiling
    Arbor uses a unique shaping technique that replaces single radius arc found in traditional camber or rocker, with a more advanced parabolic profile. The design blends five separate radii together to create a parabolic arc, which gradually reduces the amount of rocker or camber toward the tip and tail. In Arbors System Rocker shapes, the design lowers the leading edge to improve edge hold. In the System Camber shapes, the design makes the leading edge less aggressive for smoother performance. The blended five radii design also drastically improves the ability to tune each shape in line for ability level, target terrain, and riding style.

  • Knucklehead
    Arbor has a different nose profile for every type of terrain. The Knucklehead is suitable from peak to parking lot with extra punch for powder.

  • Taper
    The widest point in the sidecut tapers in toward the tip earlier for less drag and hooking in powder. Swing weight is also reduced making the ski even more maneuverable in difficult snow.


CORE

  • 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.


REINFORCEMENTS

  • Mixed Glassing
    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.


TOPSHEET

  • Powerply Topsheet
    The Power Ply works like an added layer of fiberglass. During construction, the natural wood or bamboo fibers are turned into a composite layer inside the board, but the process takes time. They start with a log that must be soaked so that it can be sliced or “veneered” into sheets, which are then assembled into “faces”. The “faces” are then backed with a special fleece material, precision sanded, and pre laminated to a protective foil made in part from natural castor bean oil. The finished topsheet is at last ready to be built into a snowboard. In the end, the process makes Arbor Power Ply designs the most labor intensive snowboards on the market. The resulting performance, board life, finish quality, reduced reliance on man–made glues, coatings, and composites are worth the extra effort.

  • Entropy Bio Resin
    All Powerplys and R.A.P. Topless Tech veneers are 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 sArbor’sced 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).

  • Bio-Plastic Topsheet
    One of the materials Arbor use in their quest to eliminate harmful pertrolium based plastics from their production cycle. Made from Castor Bean Oil, this eco-topsheet is extremely durable and water repellent.


BASE

  • Sintered Plus Base
    Arbor's sintered plus base is a mid-density material that demonstrates increased speed and durability while maintaining the ease of repairCrossLink base is a mid-density material that demonstrates increased speed and durability while maintaining the ease of repair.

  • Wend Natural Wax
    All boards are waxed and ready to use.


SIDEWALL

  • ABS (recycled) Sidewall
    Provides enhanced durability while keeping the core safe from moisture.When a plastic alternative is unavailable, as in the case of ABS sidewalls, Arbor has choosen for a recycled material to improve the sustainability of their products.


EDGES

  • Griptech
    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 us to deliver designs that don’t lose performance as we lift leading sections of the effective edge from the snow for a less grabby ride. Those designs include rocker, or camber with our new uprise fenders. Uprise fenders pull the outside contact zones off the snow with angled 3º risers on all camber system designs.

  • Recycled Steel Edges
    Highly durable,recycled steel edges embody two of Arbor's key values: quality and sustainability.

  • 360° 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.

  • Factory Tuned
    Detuning of the tip and tail contact points on all snowboards for a catch-free ride before they leave the factory.


MOUNTING

  • 2x4 Inserts
    Provide a wide stance range, while at the same time delivering critical micro adjustability.
