“Vugenhausen.” We aren’t really sure what that word is supposed to mean but I think it’s something along the lines of “paved the way for the Cypher.” The Arbor Cypher, part of Arbor’s Downhill Series, is a sweet new board that Arbor brought into their lineup in 2012, and now with new graphics for 2013. It's inspired by the Arbor Vugenhausen which made a miraculous debut! The Cypher is the drop-through version that will get you even lower to the ground. It's pretty stiff, but the Cypher’s 8-ply construction gives it a little bit of torsional flex, and in combination with the low center of gravity, it's ideal for increased stability and easy transitions into drifts and slides. Drop-through downhill boards like the Cypher are perfect for technical courses where you need to scrub off speed here and there to hold your line and make corners. Being lower to the ground allows you to kick your board out a bit easier because you don’t have as much room to lean before your wheels want to break free. With the Cypher you can effortlessly dominate downhill courses or dial in your slides.
Arbor has been doing a great job with their downhill program and the Cypher is an amazing part of their arsenal! If you like ultimate control you are going to love the Arbor Cypher. All Cypher’s come factory gripped with coarse grip, so you can have peace of mind knowing that your feet are not going anywhere no matter how fast you go! It's the perfect package for someone who wants to up their game and shred hills harder than ever!
