For steeper lines and deeper snow.
Newly launched for this season, the Arbor Cypress Snowboard Binding represents Arbor's dedication to premium performance and uncompromising quality. The Cypress is Arbor's go-to choice for freeriding, excelling at slashing through trees, slaying steep chutes, and cruising all over the mountain. You'll instantly appreciate its stiffer flex and supportive highback next time you're chasing powder in the backcountry or bombing down formidable terrain at your favorite mountain.
It's built off an X-Drive baseplate that seamlessly transfers energy with its structural X-shaped design, comprised of four contact points overlaid with a vibration dampening interface. This baseplate minimizes on-board contact, so you can maximize the true flex of your board without the "deadspot" inherent to traditional bindings. This particular X-Drive baseplate features a 33% fiberglass blend, creating a more responsive ride for railing carves with precision. The provided 2x4 mini disc requires less surface area while accommodating both 4-hole and Channel mounting systems.
Eliminating nasty pressure points, the Cypress features 3D-contoured straps with strategic cut-outs for a better wrap around your boot's ankle and toe. The embedded Wire-Core pulls the ankle strap sideways, so you can easily load into your bindings without accidentally stepping on the strap. Absorbing heavy landings and high-speed chatter, a dual-density footbed places EVA pods under the ball and heel of your foot—two areas prone to injury from harsh shock and vibration. This cushy footbed is canted with a 1.5-degree slant, promoting an ergonomically friendly stance for hours of riding comfort.
