Test Results


Ascent: The Bryan Iguchi Pro is with around 3,1kg a bit lighter than his brother Coda. The performance is thanks to the camber also better and supported by the  "Parabolic" shape (a little reverse curve at the inner side of the contact points). You traverse safely even at steeper and hardpacked traverses. In deep conditions the little notches at the tail make the board sink at the tail and so the nose comes out propperly and makes the ascent more fun. The balance is really good.

Descent: The Arbor Bryan Iguchi Pro is adjusted similar to his brother Coda, so relatively soft but a bit harder. Still its surfy feeling remains even with the camber construction. Due to the little notch at the tail you just need a bit more weight on the backfoot while riding in powder. compared to a classic powder machine.  The nose keeps up quite easily and you can completely concentrate on the cristaline white while riding. When you come into hardpack or even tracked hardpack, the nose crushes the snow or the edge gets well into it. The edgegrip is really good at higher speeds. The Iguchi Pro is super agile and manoeverable. Not only in the backcountry but also on piste you can have lots of fun with the new split and if you like you can send some freestyle tricks as well.

Description


visceral desire to explore the backcountry with the best tools possible led Arbor to a splitboard collaboration with their mentor and friend, Bryan Iguchi. All the design of the Iguchi Pro in a split, for those who prefer fully engaged Camber System performance. Despite the new design, no major changes in construction this season. Karakoram Clips have been replaced with Karakoram Ultra Clips, hence no screws at the bottom. Price was increased by approx. 200 EUR this season.
