Reviewer Alex

"Easy float, let me hike, surf and play any terrain. I don't like a powder board to be too flexible, because I want to lay some trenches on the groomers too. When the snow starts falling in the evening, I get happily nervous for the next day."

Quality at ease


The Wasteland is Arbors flagship. Main quality of the Wasteland is in my opinion off-piste in powder. Although it does ride easy and good on the edges. The Wasteland has one of those curly edges which makes that you'll have faster and easier contact with the piste once you push the board in your turn. With a medium stiffness the Wasteland is absolutely comfortable on groomers. Not a speedracer but steady at regular speed. The good float of the board makes the main asset in powder though. All together that makes it a good board for intermediates till advanced boarders who like to enjoy all kind of slopes around the resort and don't want to be punished for small mistakes.

Outstanding off-piste

Off-piste the Wasteland gives you a surfy and always in control feeling. Floatation is sufficient for any amout of fresh snow. Easy to maneuver around, makes the Wasteland playful enough to take it through tighter forests for example. And once you hit crud or chopped slopes the edge hold quality delivers an easy ride in the side country. If there is something it lacks for me personally, it is rebound. You can't have it all. The Wasteland is great for freeriding.

Arbor about the Wasteland

"The Wasteland is the premium version of the Coda Rocker. An enhanced lay–up gives this flagship, reverse camber design a light, more responsive ride. The inlaid Power Ply topsheet marks the Wasteland as a versatile, intuitive mountain machine.", says Arbor.
