A Look at the 2023 Arbor Crosscut Camber

Arbor’s freeride-focused Crosscut is a great choice for experienced riders who are looking for a versatile board without an overly aggressive feel to it. Starting with its long, slow-rising nose, which helps plane in softer snow, the 10mm set-back, slightly tapered shape is designed to float in powder, as well as give the Crosscut a solid sense of direction.

Flex-wise, expect a linear, slightly firm medium flex, which you can load up and drive into the snow, for smooth, but quick response. The Crosscut is a full-camber board, and features Arbor’s parabolic camber, which has more positive camber between the feet, and then tapers off a bit toward the tips.

A tri-radial unblinded sidecut, which originates with Arbor’s Grip-Tech protrusions beneath the feet, giving the Crosscut better edge grip on firm conditions. The Crosscut’s sidecut is on the longer side, making it stable at higher speeds, as you freeride around the mountain. 

To top it off, the Crosscut is adorned with really sleek graphics by renowned graphic designer (and Snowboard Magazine’s original art director) Aaron Draplin.

Arbor Crosscut Camber sizes: 154, 158, 159W, 162, 165MW, 170W (also available in reverse camber)
