Testers' Ratings

This hardy freeride board is more focused on performance than smoothness. But the often sharp edge-to-edge makes way for comfort and trustworthiness on the flat: enjoyable and successful!

A new addition to the freeride range, this high-end board completes American rider Bryan Iguchi's perfect quiver. You can see Arbor's signature on the Annex with smoothness and on-snow contact, but it is more nervy than its sisters. This choice of a more catchy and reactive character clearly makes it cut out for power. On turns, it relies on precision and support rather than comfort. On the other hand, with speed and commitment you can retain cushioning and even smoothness on the flat, particularly on powder. You'll find that the nose develops with the terrain, capable of showing a hint of tolerance. This versatile freeride, robust on the edge and heel, can be ridden hard and powerfully, to deliver the full range of its potential.
