Reviewer Alex

"Which board has the highest limits on every terrain? Push and enjoy it to the max everywhere. Adrenaline comes from sharp long carves till blinding amounts of fresh snow in the woods. All-mountain snowboards should be able to handle it all."

One hell of a speeddevil


Here is another speeddevil for the all-mountain category of snowboards. The Arbor A-Frame is super strong with focus on piste. It wants to blow away on the groomed slope. It's adrenaline time for the speeddevils. Long turns is what the A-Frame wants and you can make them perfectly with this snowboard as it is a stiff camber board which gives full grip. I truly love the acceleration I can get out of this one. For the shorter work it is adjusting as you can expect. Aggressively attack the bumps and you will be allright, but that is not what you would buy it for.

Serious not forgiving board

Warning: not for beginners. You wouldn't have fun as it will take you on a ride. And for the better boarders: look for empty prepared slopes. Then you can dive into the depths of the valley with a controlled death wish. Full turns, pushing yourself to the limit and you'll be rewarded. You don't have to worry about a bit soft snow. As long as the slope is kind of even, it cuts easily through it. The A-Frame gives an incredible kick and it looks cool classic as most Arbor snowboards do.

Arbor about the A-Frame

"A contemporary big-mountain gun for riders who want superior on-edge camber performance and exceptional float in powder. The A-frame will lock and hold a deeply carved line, provide powerful control in the steeps, and deliver amazing stability at speed. Intermediate - Advanced", says Arbor.I totally recognise what Arbor tells about their A-Frame snowboard from the Roots Collection. Speed, stability, control, that's what I expect and that's what I got. It does float in powder, but not to the same amount as playful rocker boards. Steep open terrain and then just blast down. My tip for intermediate level boarders would be to take a bit more forgiving board first before stepping on the A-Frame.

Related snowboards

Salomon Rancho: top speed and direct lines in powder with enough edge grip on groomers.
Rossignol XV Magtek: same kind of board, amazingly fast and stable.
Nitro Pantera: stiffer and more pop, a challenge.
