Tailored for park riding but versatile enough for the entire mountain, the Cadence is a women’s specific freestyle twin with a medium flex. The Cadence is soft enough to jib and press with ease, but stable enough for jumps and pipe, making it a team favorite for trick based riding. Traditionally built on our Rocker System for a jib friendly ride with easy butter-ability, we now also offer the Cadence in our Camber System for riders who prefer a more poppy ride with crisp, fully engages performance.

THE PARK SYSTEM

A FUSION OF INTERDEPENDENT TECHNOLOGIES THAT SUPPORT SUCCESSFUL ROCKER PERFORMANCE

Make no mistake, rocker represents a completely different approach to snowboard design.  It requires a total rethink of long held ideas of how flex, materials, and shape interact and affect performance.  In response, Arbor developed The System to address the new physics of riding rocker.  In our opinion, the award winning “System” has proven itself to be the best rocker design yet offered.

OTHER FEATURES & TECH

THE TOPSHEET

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

MEDICINE CORE – Arbor’s principle all-mountain core, built from 100% FSC certified, sustainably produced poplar.  Poplar remains the industry’s standard for reliable return and lasting durability.

BASE

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

SIDECUT

UNBLENDED PROGRESSIVE – Arbor’s unblended tri-radial sidecut technology; better known as “Grip Tech.”  Please see “The System” Section for more details.

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

BUTTER GLASSING – A biax over biax lay-up that’s designed for park and street inspired all-mountain and urban riding

INSERTS

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

Bella Stance – Max Stance 23.1″ / 59 cm

SHADOW FLEX

DEEP SHADOW – Delivers JIB and street 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.

Arbor Cadence 2010 Company Description

Las Muertas…

The Cadence is designed for women who take a park-inspired set of skills to the whole mountain – a no compromise directional-twin that supports spin tricks, rail sessions, and slope style cruising. A structural bird’s eye maple top creates a fun disposition, light-touch initiation, and lively return.

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.

Protecting the planet is about the environments we utilize everyday. We need clean air to skate, clean water to surf, and snow to ride.

STRUCTURAL WOOD TOPSHEET – Works like a 3rd layer of fiberglass – during construction resin locks the dense wood fibers in place, creating a composite layer that structurally enhances a board, providing added return and durability, while allowing for important weight reduction.

FSC CERTIFIED WOOD CORES – All of Arbor’s wood cores are made with poplar that has been certified by the Forest Stewardship Council as sustainably produced.  Poplar is still the best choice as a primary wood core material due to its combination of lighter-weight performance, durability, and availability.
