The Coda is a first-class, versatile mountain twin; a high-end verision of the Shiloh, distinguished by upgraded features such as our classic American Black Walnut Powerply and our all-new “Rise Above Plastics” Topless Technology. This newly developed R.A.P. Topless Technology allows us to move one step closer to a product made of fully recyclable and bio-degradable materials. Additional upgraded features include our most premium Sintered Base with our most environmentally friendly base construction process, Zero Waste Base die-swap. The Coda is available in both System Rocker and System Camber technologies. The System Rocker design provides a surfy ride with natural float and cleaner tracking. The System Camber design offers a poppy ride with crisp, fully engaged performance.
- American Black Walnut Powerply: This technology improves the strength, durability, and return of Arbor's snowboards. The Power Ply works like an added layer of fiberglass. During construction, the natural wood or bamboo fibers are turned into a composite layer inside the board.
- R.A.P Topless Technology: A build process in which we eliminate the need for our Bio-Plastic Topsheet, creating a lighter, more eco-friendly ride.
- FSC Certified Double Barrel II Core: A progressive 1:2 Poplar to Paulonia blend with bamboo stringers running along the rails of the board for added torsional response and improved board control.
- Sintered Base
- Mixed Glassing: A triax over biax lay–up that’s best for versatility: pow, backcountry, groomers, jumps, and more.
- Recycled Steel Edges: Highly durable, recycled steed edges embody two of our Arbor’skey values: quality and sustainability.
- Entropy Bio Resin: Starting with their 2020 line Arbor is proud to announce that all Powerplys and R.A.P. Topless Tech veneers will be made with Entropy Bio-Resin, a replacement for traditional petroleum based resin that doesn’t affect performance or usability. The ingredients that go into Entropy Bio-Resin are sourced as co-products or waste products of other industrial processes and are manufactured employing green chemistry techniques that reduce the carbon footprint of the material by up to 40% (when compared to its petroleum based equivalent).
- Wend Natural Wax: All Arbor snowboards hit the shop floor ready to ride with Wend Natural Wax.
- Factory Tuned: Arbor's detune the tip and tail contact points on all of our snowboards for a catch-free ride before they leave the factory.
- Zero Waste Base: All of Arbor's die-cut bases feature our Zero Waste Base technology, and come in interchangable 2 colorways. This process is essential to reducing our carbon footprint and eliminating waste during the manufacturing process.
- Recycled ABS
- 3600 Fully Wrapped Sidewalls
- 2x4 14 Pack Inserts
Essentially it is the opposite of traditional camber. There is a continuous concave or “rocker” shape between the tip and tail contact points. Reverse camber boards were traditionally recommended for beginners because it makes turn initiation easier and you are less likely to catch an edge. However, it also provides a looser feel which may not be the easiest for the beginner to control.
The continuous rocker profile has a very playful feel, is great for butters and floats well in powder.
The trade off is that there is less pop, they feel loose (which is only a bad thing if you don’t want a loose feeling board), doesn’t hold an edge as well as other profiles, and it is more difficult to stomp landings from big air.
The System is Arbor’s principal design platform. They developed The System to improve true rocker and camber designs by maintaining the integrity of both platforms without fusing either into a hybrid design. Arbor believes that hybridization sacrifices some of the inherent benefits of each design philosophy. The System is an advanced rocker and camber design that improves upon the benefits of each platform depending on the needs of each rider. Whether you prefer the crisp, fully engaged performance of camber or the surfy, butter feel of rocker, The System creates a clean, effective connection to the snow, delivering a smooth ride with enhanced control.

A true twin shape is completely symmetrical. If you cut a true twin in half exactly down the middle you would end up with two identical pieces of board.
This means that the nose and the tail are the same length and the same width and the bindings are centred on the board – i.e. they are equal distances from the centre of the board and the front binding is the same distance from the nose as the back binding is from the tail.
Of course, as you can adjust the width of the position of the bindings you could create a setback stance if you were so inclined but this would be unusual on a true twin given its purpose and might be a strange feel depending on the camber profile (i.e. one foot could end up being over camber and the other over rocker which would probably feel odd).
In addition to this a true twin has exactly the same flex in the nose and tail.
