“Four years ago, Mervin Manufacturing (the owner of Lib Tech and Gnu) introduced so-called multiple sidecut – and turned the industry on its head.  Instead of one continuous sidecut, these new boards have multiple contact points along their edge, which improves edge hold and gives you more control, especially on reverse-camber boards. Don’t know what we’re talking about? It’s time for a new stick. This year, more than half of our seven favorite boards feature the technology, though none employs it better than our Gear of the Year winner, the Arbor Draft.” Alicia Carr

arbor-logo3ARBOR MOVES ITS SNOWBOARD PRODUCTION TO THE ELAN FACTORY IN AUSTRIA

Venice, CA – January 5, 2009 – Arbor has decided to move the production of its snowboard line to the Elan snowboard factory in Furnitz, Austria. This proactive change will be in effect starting with the company’s 2010 samples. The decision was motivated by Arbor’s need to partner with the most advanced snowboard factory available. Doing so allows the company to manage an increasingly complicated use of its organic materials and eco-technologies. Only in Austria has the company found the know-how, attention to detail, advanced technologies, and unmatched material and sourcing knowledge required to create an Arbor. After careful analysis of all options, Arbor selected Elan as the best choice to handle its growing production needs.
