Arbor Cypress bindings
Sick of bindings that fold up like a wet noodle if you so much as think the words "black diamond"? Check out the Arbor Cypress Snowboard Bindings. These power players are equipped with burly System X baseplates and stiff asymmetric highbacks that give as good as they get. They ride like a firm handshake, looking you in the eye and letting you know you're in good hands before cranking the dial up to 11. For ambitious freeriders dabbling in big mountain terrain, the Arbor Cypress Snowboard Bindings are up there with the best.
System X – System X is a baseplate design that more efficiently transfers and evenly distributes a rider's energy into their snowboard. No matter where pressure is applied to the binding, the System X allocates energy across the baseplate's structural X shape, and out to the four cardinal points. The result is quicker, more effective control. 30% glass content for added strength and stability.
65A Durometer Outsole – The Outsole is a dampening interface made from a special TPE rubber. The Outsole integrates with the System X design and sits between the binding and a rider's snowboard. The Outsole diffuses high-frequency chatter while providing rebound and cushion for high-impact landings. On the Cypress, Arbor uses a slightly stiffer durometer TPE for added performance.
Adjustable Extruded Aluminum Heelcup – Highly durable extruded aluminum, designed to work with the Mini-Disk for amazing adjustability. Use the highback to center the foot and the disk to fine-tune your stance width.
2 XD Footbeds – The Cypress Bindings feature a dual-density footbed design that provides impact absorption, comfort, durability, and improved feel. The topside of the footbed is made with a firmer material that provides durability and a more tactile interface with a rider's boot. Under the ball and heel area, Arbor added impact absorbent EVA pods that interface directly with a rider's snowboard to improve board feel while adding cushion for landings and hard snow conditions.
Asymmetrical Highbacks – Arbor bindings feature low mounted asymmetrical highbacks with 5° pre-rotation, providing ergonomic feel and freedom of movement.
Tool-less Forward Lean Adjustment
Bow-Strap Adjuster – Arbor's patented "Bow-Strap" adjuster and ladder strap swings out of the way quickly and easily, making binding entry a simple, user-friendly experience. The pre-curved strap steers clear of your boot while maintaining form and durability in even the coldest conditions.
Co-Moulded Ankle Strap
UltraGrip Convertible Toe Strap
Cast Aluminum Buckles and Levers – Arbor's upgraded buckles offer clean, ultra reliable performance, long-term durability, and a tighter, stronger click for unparalleled boot to binding connection.
2x4 Universal Mini-Disc – Mini-Disks require less surface area and along with the System X help provide a more organic snowboard flex underfoot. They are channel compatible.
