Arbor Roundhouse CX 2013

INTERMEDIATE TO ADVANCED
An advanced all-mountain bomber that’s built wide to support larger feet, yet designed to provide the quickness of a narrower board; the Roundhouse provides the versatility needed to slash the steeps, cruise the trees, lap the park, and punch through big pow turns.

THE TOPSHEET
POWER PLY – Arbor’s wood Power Ply works like a 3rd layer of fiberglass. During construction resin locks the Power Ply’s dense natural fibers in place, creating an additional composite layer that structurally enhances a board for added return and improved durability.  Our Power Ply technology allows us to reduce our overall reliance on chemically treated fiberglass and petroleum-based resin by up to 20%, which also provides important weight reduction. Arbor’s wood Power Plys are produced using a range of sustainably sourced, natural wood veneers. The variance of real wood grain creates a one-of-a-kind look on each board made with this technology.
BIO-FILM – Every board in the Arbor line is built with an ultra thin protective top foil made using 30% caster bean based bio-plastic.  This top sheet protects the board from damage caused by loose bindings, out-of-control skiers, or other unforeseen impacts.  Its natural glossy nature also eliminates the need for environmentally harmful clear coats.
THE CORE
MYSTIC 1 CORE – A high-grade core for mixed mountain or park performance; built using FSC certified, sustainably produced “TDS” poplar and reinforced with two bamboo axels running tip to tail down the center of the core.  The bamboo axels create compression struts that liven up the longitudinal flex without affecting turn or spin initiation and landing recoverability.  Bamboo is one of the strongest materials on the planet.  It has 40 times the effective life of carbon fiber and provides 60% more return than traditional core materials. Bamboo’s tensile strength and weight-to-strength ratio are superior to steel; yet bamboo is light, flexible, and resistant to compression.  TDS is a specially selected lighter grade of poplar wood.
SHADOW FLEX – A slight tapered thinning of the core profile between the bindings, improves: turn and spin initiation; tracking in mixed conditions, on the flats, and during landings; and performance on rails, boxes, and jibs.
THE BASE
ROCKET BASE – A higher molecular weight, wax-infused sintered base that provides unmatched durability and speed.
THE SIDECUT
STANDARD PROGRESSIVE – A blended tri-radial sidecut design that provides tighter turning and quicker initiation, while maintaining stability at speed, when flat boarding, and during landings
THE SIDEWALLS
RHYTHM RAILS – Made from an advanced blend of ABS and urethane; delivers durability, a clean, acoustically damp ride, and solid edge performance.
THE GLASS
MIXED GLASSING – A triax over biax lay-up that’s best for versatile on-mountain and park riding.
THE INSERTS
2X4 14-PACKS – Provides both a wide stance range and amazing micro adjustability; used here to create Arbor’s Mountain Stance, which has a max stance of 24.4″/62cm
THE EDGES
RECYCLED STEEL – Built with hardened steel edges made using 60% recycled steel; provided maximum edge performance.
WARRANTY
TWO-YEAR – Every board in the Arbor line comes with a two-year warranty on material and workmanship.  We stand by everything we make.

WOOD POWER PLY – Arbor’s wood Power Ply works like a 3rd layer of fiberglass – during construction resin locks the dense natural fibers in place, creating a composite layer that structurally enhances a board for added return and improved durability, while allowing for important weight reduction. The Power Ply technology allows Arbor to reduce our overall reliance on chemically treated fiberglass and petroleum-based resin by up to 20%.  The Power Ply is produced using sustainably sourced, natural wood veneer. The variance of real wood grain creates a one-of-a-kind look on each board made with this technology.

 

BIO-FILM – Every board in the Arbor line is now built with an ultra thin protective top foil made using 30% caster bean based bio-plastic.  This top sheet protects the board from damage caused by loose bindings, out-of-control skiers, or other unforeseen impacts.  Its natural glossy nature also eliminates the need for environmentally harmful clear coats.

 

WOOD CORE

 

VOODOO CORE – Arbor’s second lightest and most versatile core, designed for mountain and park level durability; built with a 100% FSC certified, sustainably produced “TDS” poplar. TDS is a specially selected lighter grade of wood.

 

BASE

 

ROCKET BASE – A higher molecular weight, wax-infused sintered base that provides unmatched durability and speed

 

SIDECUT

 

STANDARD PROGRESSIVE – A blended tri-radial sidecut design that provides tighter turning and quicker initiation, while maintaining stability at speed and during landings.

 

SIDEWALLS

 

RHYTHM RAILS – Made from an advanced blend of ABS and urethane; delivers durability, a clean, acoustically damp ride, and solid edge performance.

 

GLASS BALANCING

 

MIXED GLASSING – A triax over biax lay-up that’s best for versatile on-mountain and park riding.

 

REINFORCING

 

CARBON FIBER STRUT – Inserting carbon fiber down the center of a board creates a compression strut that livens up a board’s longitudinal flex and improves durability without affecting turn-ability, spin initiation, or landing recoverability – designed for mixed mountain and park performance.

 

 

INSERTS

 

2X4 14-PACKS – An insert system that provides a wide stance range and amazing micro adjustability; used to create Arbor’s:

 

Mountain Stance – Max Stance: 24.4″ / 62 cm

 

SHADOW FLEX

 

MEDIUM SHADOW – Delivers mountain and park performance.  A slight tapered thinning of the core profile between the bindings, improves: turn and spin initiation; tracking in mixed conditions, on the flats, and during landings; and performance on rails, boxes, and naturals.

 

EDGES

 

RECYCLED STEEL – Built with hardened steel edges made with 60% recycled steel; provides maximum edge performance.

 

2-YEAR WARRANTY

 

Every board in the Arbor line comes with a two-year warranty on material and workmanship.  We stand by everything we make.

Rocket Base

An advanced, ultra-high molecular weight sintered compound that provides unmatched durability, wax absorption, and speed.

Voodoo Core

Our second lightest core, designed for on-mountain and park riding, built with a 100% TDS poplar, which is a specially selected lighter grade of wood.

Progressive – Standard

A blended tri-radial sidecut that provides tighter turning and quicker initiation, while maintaining stability at speed and during landings.
