The Ethos is a Women's specific snowboard for riders who want to learn, grow, and reach the next level. The shape is built around Arbor's System Rocker design to provide an incredibly forgiving, easy to control, catch-free experience. Expect amazing value and the ideal platform for perfecting your turns and building confidence on the groomers, in deeper snow, at speed, in the park, steeps, or even the trees.
Grip Tech creates added heel and toe contact points that dramatically improve edge control on snow and ice. The design creates a more ergonomic and direct connection to the snow for substantially improved handling and response time. The Added contact points make it possible for Arbor to offer Rocker designs that hold an amazing edge and Camber designs that provide cleaner edge performance.
We use a unique shaping technique that replaces the single radius arc found in traditional camber or rocker with a more advanced parabolic profile. The design blends five separate radii together to create a parabolic arc which gradually reduces the amount of rocker or camber toward the tip and tail. In our System Rocker shapes the design lowers the leading edge to improve edge hold. In our System Camber shapes the design makes the leading edge less aggressive for smoother performance. The blended five radii design also drastically improves our ability to tune each shape in our line for ability level, target terrain and riding style.
Our System Rocker shapes are for riders who want:
- A surfy ride with natural float, cleaner tracking across the snow and more care-free turns and spins
- Best in class true-rocker edge hold on the steeps, at higher speeds and through any landing
