ArborCoda Splitboard - Men's

The cure to your tracked-out blues.

Ditch the maddening lines and tracked-out snow of resorts with the Arbor Coda Splitboard guiding you to pristine backcountry lines this winter. The Coda Splitboard is based off the legendary Coda, but with a reclined version of The System Rocker for increased skinning contact and extra buoyancy in deep powder. Balancing out the board's full parabolic rocker, the Grip Tech sidecut adds two extra contact points for improved edge hold when you're making jump turns down steep, icy chutes and traversing across wind-buffed ridges.

The medium-stiff flex and directional twin shape maximize versatility for attacking a wide range of terrain, from open powder bowls to steeps above treeline. Since it retains a centered stance (along its effective edge), the Coda Splitboard lends itself to throwing spins off cliff lines and floating backside 180s off windlips into fresh powder. Karakoram clips actively join each half together, allowing for a solid feel underfoot without the excess slop plaguing earlier, more primitive splits.

Boasting Arbor's lightest construction, the Highland core lends a feathery feel on the way up, all without sacrificing stability when you're charging down a myriad of backcountry terrain. Mixed Glassing is Arbor's most versatile fiberglass lay-up for confidently handling any situation you find yourself in. Carbon Uprights run vertically from each binding zone towards the tip and tail, increasing stability on landings and improving snap off natural hits.

Oh Yeah!

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

Fast turn initiation, amazing on uneven terrain, soft flexing core (bamboo + fiber glass), and grip tech contact points allow for easy edge hold. Holy cow I'm in love! I would say this is the best bang for your buck split board and more.

Great board.

I got the Arbor Coda for Christmas and have enjoyed it so far. I haven't used it very much but initial impressions are good. I use the voile puck system with the board and it all works well together. You can feel the board flex slightly while riding but that's fairly typical with splitboards. Good board and I am excited to use it more.

Unanswered Question

I like the sound of the surfy playful feel of the coda but have concerns about how well it will skin up due to the rocker. Would a cambered board be a significantly better skinning experience?
