The Arbor Wasteland Snowboard is Arbor’s flagship board with a go-anywhere design. The Wasteland features Arbor’s Mountain System Rocker which gives the board longer tips and a directional twin shape for superior float and go-anywhere versatility.

Featuring Arbor’s most valuable tech, the Wasteland will destroy everything from groomers to untouched pow. Cutting edge performance and versatility, there is no board that will give you the power and confidence that the Arbor Wasteland can provide. I rode this board for 3 straight big powder days and it responded exactly as advertised.

Arbor’s flagship snowboard blends the most current thinking in big mountain design with our tried and true System set of rocker technologies to deliver cutting edge performance and versatility. Go anywhere in or out-of bounds and ride with the powerful confidence that only the Arbor Wasteland provides.

With a rocker profile, new tip and tail shape, and a medium flex that gives you control and stability on the steeps, the flagship Arbor Wasteland snowboard is ready to lay waste to untouched slopes. I had the opportunity to ride this board with a stiffer binding (Union Charger) and it really handled well in the deep snow. Here is a little more information on the Arbor Wasteland Snowboard:

Overall

The Arbor Wasteland was a fantastic board to ride; I really enjoyed the grip technology. It was like having an emergency brake on your heels. Whenever you need to slide sideways to peel off some speed all you have to do is lean back and give it a good kick towards the mountain and the Grip Tech would dig right in. There were a few times I over kicked my brakes and came to a near complete stop. It really is a fantastic design and a great looking board!
