Built to the specifications and guidelines of Erik Leon. The Relapse features toned-down Grip Tech and Uprise fenders to complement the traditional shape and System Camber profile. Erik's Relapse is mindfully crafted to incorporate the Community Outreach Riding Equipment value system into its build, making it the pro model working to build accessibility, community, and feature sustainable materials and build process. We are proud to present this year's Relapse by Erik Leon, for C.O.R.E Snowboarding. Follow @core_snowboarding for more information.
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 Camber shapes are for riders who want:
- A highly responsive ride, crisp on-edge performance and more pop for carving and ollies
- Effortless true-camber performance across all types of snow and during turns, spins and landings
