Arbor Hemlock 2017 Review by The Good Ride

The Arbor Hemlock binding is a new binding for 2017 and really pairs up well with easy turning playful boards. The demo model impressed us.  We had some minor issues with some components of the binding but the main thing holding us back from recommending this binding was the ratchets.  We just got our hands on the production model and it’s more impressive than even before.  Especially for buttering and it really adds some energy to them. That being said it really likes to be paired with a very easy turning board like many of Arbor’s continuous rocker models. It doesn’t really seem to have much more response than that and it really struggled to turn my all mountain OZ Custom Woody.  The ratchets still aren’t great but they now hold.  They are sticky and not that smooth on and off.  That being said the rest of this binding is very recommendable and it has a lot of unique tech that really makes the board feel more alive underfoot.
