Riding Style / Field of use


The Coda is still playful and versatile. For 2021-22 they gave it a little more camber which is good for both the descent and the ascent!

Test Results


Descent: The Arbor Coda is a bit softer compared to the Bryan Iguchi Pro, which gives it an even surfier feel in powder. Although the Coda is a mountain twin, the nose floats on powder without having to put a lot of weight on the back foot. If you go from powder to windpack or variable conditions, the edge holds well and control can be maintained. At very high speeds, there is a possibility to loose your edge. On the slopes it is impeccable, the edge holds and the board is fun. Again, the idiosyncrasies of the Grip Tech on the edges should be noted.

Ascent: On the ascent, the Coda is noticeably heavier than the Bryan Iguchi at 161 cm. The performance is good, despite the rocker it holds thanks to the "Parabolic" Shape (Reverse radius between binding and contact points) it holds quite well even when traversing in hard terrain. If it gets deeper, it floats up and the balance is decent. If there's some snow stuck to the board, the nose will lift up a little earlier during kick turns than other boards we have tested so the uphill performance is slightly compromised.

Description


The Coda Split from Arbor is available this year, similar to the Swoon Split or Goodboards GB Split, in two versions: One as a nose rocker and once as a camber version. We have tested the camber version here and would also prefer this to the rocker version, because with a pure rocker splitboard the edge hold in the ascent is worse.
