**This snowboard review is true for both 2016 and 2017 models. The Arbor Element snowboard has not changed at all for 2017 other than the graphics**
In this snowboard review we are testing out the Arbor Element snowboard at Breckenridge Resort in Colorado. We had some great spring conditions for testing providing us with firm snow, and some fun groomers. The GripTech sidecut is a critical addition to the Arbor Element and allowed it to carve really well; it is able to withstand a lot of weight with aggressive carving before starting to slip at all. It is also great for pressing and doing butters, overall it rides like a solid but playful all mountain snowboard. This board is a great choice for beginner level riders and up. The highlight on this snowboard for me is how easy pressing is, but still being able to hold a strong edge when carving.
