A go-to of our favorite ranch rider, Mark Carter, the Arbor Cypress binding is constructed with a sustainable design that doesn’t sacrifice durability or performance. With Arbor’s System X Baseplate, this binding absorbs chatter while providing shock absorption on landings, making the Cypress a prime freeride companion.
For 2024, the Cypress also features Arbor’s all-new, plant-based BioStrap that significantly reduces the amount of plastic in the construction and that is stronger, more lightweight, and consistently (the bio strap can also be found on the women’s-specific Sequoia binding).
With freeride response in mind, this binding has asymmetrical highbacks with a 5-degree rotation, which minimizes pressure points and creates immediate response when a rider leans in for a heelside turn.
As the stiffest offering in the Arbor binding lineup, the Cypress is built for burly lines and hard charging turns. And, it’s loaded with sustainable tech that provides seamless response mindfully crafted so that your head stays clear when you’re standing on top of your next big line. – Ally Watson
