While we are on the Arbor topic:
-Anyone know the difference between the Cascade (REI exclusive design) and the Element RX? Seems almost identical except the price tag (Cascade is $419 on sale right now)...
-How is the Element RX going to compare to a hybrid board? I'm leaning towards a NS Cobra, Gnu Billy Goat, Lib Lando. I ride groomers, glades and look for pow in the Cascades. No park. Figured a stiffer board with the hybrid would give me what I want....but I am just in love with the look of the Arbor boards. My "research" has steered me away from the Rx (pure rocker), but maybe I should still consider it?
Last year we were told the cascade was REI's coda. I would guess it is the same this year. I really like the graphics on the cascade this year.
