A proper skate tribute.
Paying homage to Arbor's Venice Beach roots with an old-school, skate-inspired design, the Arbor Zygote Twin Snowboard is a non-symmetric twin that slays the park with a buttery-soft flex and true-twin geometry. Distinctive tip and tail shapes offer a throwback '80s skateboard look without affecting switch freestyle performance, thanks to equal tip and tail heights, widths, and lengths. Translated to on-snow performance, the Zygote Twin rides forward and switch equally well for effortless freestyle performance.
The original board to feature Arbor's The System Camber, the Zygote Twin Snowboard has parabolic camber that's less aggressive towards the tip and tail contacts for a less-catchy feel, while still retaining the pre-loaded pop of a traditional cambered deck. Then, Arbor slightly raised the contact points so they're not touching when you're tracking into rails, but still engage instantly when you set a carve. If that wasn't enough, Grip Tech creates extra contact points at the inserts for extra edge hold on icy slopes. Ultimately, this means the Zygote Twin delivers poppy, yet press-able performance whether you're lapping the park or taking your tricks to the side hits and fallen trees hidden around the rest of the mountain.

- Q & A
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
The Zygote Twin is an absolutely amazing board. I recently purchased this board and I've loved it since the first time I used it. The Zygote Twin is an asymmetrical twin board, meaning the on-snow geometry is the same in both the nose and the tail--this makes riding switch or backwards very natural. I haven't ridden it in a park or freestyle setting yet, but it's done an amazing job where I have ridden it. This board is very flexible and extremely easy to control. It's also durable and frankly quite beautiful.
I'd recommend this board to anyone looking for a fun, flexible freestyle board.
