The Cypress is a freeride design for riders who like their lines a little more rowdy and their playgrounds bigger. We’ve created a powerful binding by stiffening our exclusive System X Baseplate with double the fiberglass; adding a lighter, stiffer and more laterally supportive highback; and beefing up the outsole. That translates into high-speed, big–mountain performance.
The mission for Arbor Bindings was to develop a unique standalone line, built around models that are utilitarian, but not basic - well designed, but not over engineered. Our goal is create durable, user–friendly designs that deliver real performance and effective technologies. Our binding line is designed to stay true to the performance, craftsmanship, and technical design you’ve come to expect from Arbor Snowboards.

- BASE PLATE:
- We designed our new baseplate to enhance the link between a rider and their snowboard, while reducing the impact that bindings have on board flex. We achieve this seamless connection with three technologies: System X, Outsole, and Organic Flex.
- SYSTEM X
- System X is a baseplate design that more efficiently transfers and evenly distributes a rider’s energy into their snowboard. No matter where pressure is applied to the binding, the System X allocates energy across the baseplate’s structural X shape, and out to the four cardinal points. The result is quicker, more effective control. When combining our System X bindings with any Arbor System Rocker or System Camber board design, rider input is transferred from the binding directly into the Grip Tech contact points creating additional edge performance.
- ORGANIC FLEX
- The System X design reduces the binding footprint by putting less material in contact with the snowboard. This allows the board to flex underfoot more organically and true to spec.
- The Outsole is a dampening interface made from a special TPE Rubber. The Outsole integrates with the System X design, and sits between the binding and a rider’s snowboard. The Outsole diffuses high–frequency chatter while providing rebound and cushion for high–impact landings.
- • On the Hemlock, we use a softer durometer TPE for a more relaxed ride.
- • On the Cypress, we use a slightly stiffer durometer TPE for added performance.
- 2 XD FOOTBEDS – (CYPRESS):
- The Cypress Binding features a dual–density footbed design that provides impact absorption, comfort, durability, and improved feel.
- • The topside of the footbed is made with a firmer material that provides durability and a more tactile interface with a rider’s boot.
- • Under the ball and the heel area, we added impact absorbent EVA pods that interface directly with a rider’s snowboard to improve board feel while adding cushion for landings and hard snow conditions.
- • The footbed has a 1.5º built–in cant for a more ergonomically aligned ride.
