The Hemlock is perfect for park laps, urban assaults, and all-skill-level resort shredding. Arbors’ exclusive System X Baseplate transfers rider input to a snowboard so effectively that Arbor was able to create a softer freestyle, all-mountain design that delivers surprisingly responsive performance and comfort.
15% fiberglass System X-Drive baseplates, 65A-durometer outsoles and EVA footbeds offer precision and power, creating maximum energy transfer in a comfortable binding design.
X-Drive baseplate- System X is a baseplate design that more efficiently transfers and evenly distributes a rider’s energy into their snowboard. No matter where pressure is applied to the binding, the System X allocates energy across the baseplate’s structural X shape, and out to the four cardinal points. The result is quicker, more effective control. When combining Arbors’ System X bindings with any Arbor System Rocker or System Camber board design, rider input is transferred from the binding directly into the Grip Tech contact points creating additional edge performance.
System X Outsole is dampening interface made from a special TPE Rubber that integrates with the System X design, and sits between the binding and a rider’s snowboard. The Outsole diffuses high–frequency chatter while providing rebound and cushion for high–impact landings.
2×4 universal mini-discs require less surface area and help provide a more organic snowboard flex underfoot than other options.
