The Curated Take
This board is great for the intermediate-expert rider who is looking to add a fun surfy pow board to their quiver. It's got a huge nose allowing you to put a lot of pressure on it so you can really lean into the front of your board on those deeper days, instead of leaning back, which I find to be a pretty unique style of riding in comparison. No matter how deep it gets, the nose just wants to pop out of the snow. Tact on the fact that it's volume shifted and you end up with a super quick and nimble board. I ride a 159W-163W normally and can size down comfortably to a 154 without having any float issues. This is my go-to board for powder days when I want to ride something that is a bit more mellow compared to my stiffer freeride board.
In terms of just having fun on groomers, it's a blast to carve with. Again, that huge nose really helps to drive the board into hard turns and the set-back stance allows you to effortlessly jump back and forth between your turns. It can be a little catchy on cat tracks, but once you get going you don't have to worry about it catching.
The griptech that Arbor integrates into their side walls really helps this board stay connected to the ground when you hit hard pack patches. I never worry about it losing an edge regardless of how fast I'm going.
