Arbor: Element RX

Photograph By Meg Haywood-Sullivan

The all-mountain Element has stood the test of time, and while its legend grows Arbor continues to make efforts to shrink snowboarding’s environmental footprint. The edges are made of hardened steel (60 percent recycled); the core is FSC-certified poplar; a bio-plastic replaces standard clear coat on the topsheet, which is also constructed from sustainably sourced wood.
