The Curated Take

By the Expert Community

I have ridden these bindings on a slew of Arbor's boards including the Coda in the rocker and camber option, the Clovis, the Annex, the Wasteland, the Crosscut, the Bryan Iguchi, and this last time on the Draft camber. It definitely fits best in the way that it rides on the more all mountain, pow, or freeride options from Arbor, but still did well on the Draft. The base they use on their binding has a full rubber gasket under the frame in an X pattern that provides really good shock absorbtion and a little bit of flex around the disc to minimize any dead spot that bindings can cause in the flex of the board. The straps held great on the toe and the ankle straps are some of the most comfortable on the market. The ankle straps have an asymetric build that can be used to make them feel stiffer or softer. Out of the box, they come in the softer setup. All that needs to be done to stiffen them up a little bit, is to swap them between the bindings. So simply put the left ankle strap on the right binding and vice versa. The highbacks have an nice curved shape to them that helps to even out the pressure up top, but they are a little taller than I typically like. They're moderately stiff but not overbearing and they never felt like they were in my way, even when buttering around on the softer Draft.

Ideal for
  • Great for boards in the all mountain up to freeride categories
  • Smooth feel underfoot
  • Great response while maintaining good board feel and natural board flex
Not ideal for
  • Highback is on the tall side and could cause bite

The Arbor Cypress Snowboard Bindings are designed for freeride enthusiasts who crave a little more excitement in their runs. With a powerful System X Baseplate that has been stiffened with double the fiberglass, these bindings offer unparalleled stability and control. The highback is lighter, stiffer, and more laterally supportive than ever before, while the outsole has been beefed up to provide maximum performance on big mountains at high speeds.

Key Features:

  • Stiff System X Baseplate: The exclusive System X Baseplate has been stiffened with double the fiberglass to provide unmatched stability and control.
  • Lightweight Highback: The highback is lighter than previous models while still being stiffer and more laterally supportive for improved performance.

Mike was really helpful when I needed to buy a snowboard! New to the sport, there is a lot of vocabulary I don't know yet, and although I have certain goals I had no idea which board was best for me. He was really responsive and felt very honest when communicating. I really appreciated it! Honestly wouldn't have found a board as fit for my needs without the consultation

I was completely overwhelmed with trying to find the right ski gear. I recently switched from snowboarding to skiing, so I understand the importance of buying the right gear for your skill level. Tommy was so helpful and didn’t make me feel silly for asking questions. Also, he nailed the recommendations right off the bat. He found options at and surprisingly below my budget. I can’t wait to hit the slopes! Thank you, Tommy!

Awesome experience from an awesome guy!
5 /5
I originally had some boards in mind and after talking to Ben I realized that my selection was no where near what I needed for the way I ride. He hooked me up with some great recommendations and answered all of the many questions I had along the way. I highly recommend asking Ben about anything snowboard related, he’s very knowledgeable and definitely knows his stuff!

Cute and Functional Recommendations
5 /5
One of my main constraints of shopping for a board was that I wanted a cute design. Cody went above and beyond finding me a board that would work for me, laid out multiple options and talked in depth about how each option would fit into my riding style. Cody picked out the ladies choice, which has been a phenomenal board so far, and I'm excited to continue riding it into the season.

Shannon provided some awesome service. Super friendly and very helpful. Can tell she knows her stuff about skis. We need more people like Shannon in the retail industry. Definitely came away from our chat with peace of mind and some sick product recs. Give Shannon 7 days paid vacation to go shred she deserves it :)
