All snowboarders know the feeling that comes along with learning to snowboard--catching an edge, wiping out, and belly-flopping onto the hard-packed snow. And no one wants to see their child go through that over and over. That is why Arbor designed the Helix Snowboard with specific catch-free technologies that focuses on easy turn initiation and a forgiving feel for beginners. Built with Grip Tech technology, this design uses natural shaping intersections at the heel and toe contact points that create a more ergonomic way to grip the snow. This grip enhances overall control and makes initiating turns significantly easier so that your kid can master carving and maintain control with confidence. The Single Malt sustainably-harvested poplar wood core and biax fiberglass wrap creates a soft flex that creates an easy-to-control feel that beginners naturally excel on.
