SHAPING ETHOS :: GRIP TECH & PARABOLIC PROFILING
Grip Tech creates added heel and toe contact points that dramatically improve edge control on snow and ice. The designcreates a more ergonomic and direct connection to the snow for substantially improved handling and response time. Theadded contact points make it possible for Arbor to offer Rocker designs that hold an amazing edge, and Camber designsthat provide cleaner edge performance.
We use a unique shaping technique that replaces single radius arc found in traditional camber or rocker, with a more advanced parabolicprofile. The design blends five separate radii together to create a parabolic arc, which gradually reduces the amount of rocker or cambertoward the tip and tail. In our System Rocker shapes, the design lowers the leading edge to improve edge hold. In our System Cambershapes, the design makes the leading edge less aggressive for smoother performance. The blended five radii design also drasticallyimproves our ability to tune each shape in our line for ability level, target terrain, and riding style.
