2017 AP Boot

The AP boot takes the unique demands of wakestyle kiting and combines them with the performance of a dedicated wake boot. Traditional wakeboarding boots are not designed for the relentless use that kiteboarding places on bindings and we have examined every aspect to make some key improvements.

For 2017 increased fiber content in the baseplate and increased thickness of the stiffening bar significantly improves the rider connection and durability. In addition we have developed an external load plate allowing us to have more control in regulating the stiffness of this high performance freestyle binding.

NEW ARTICULATED UPPER

NEW ARTICULATED UPPER

The articulated upper allows us to control the flex between the upper and lower part of the foot. This creates a perfect balance between mobility and support. For 2017 a combination of webbing and neoprene reinforcing connect the upper and lower boot for increased durability.
KITE SPECIFIC REINFORCING

KITE SPECIFIC REINFORCING

Kiteboarding places specific loads when compared to a traditional wake boot due to the longer typical use. Airush bindings have been reinforced in all key areas – such as the toe cap and upper base plate connection – through a heavy-duty double stitched connection. For 2017 additional stiffening and reinforcing have been added to the direct drive base plate and stiffening bar.
DIRECT DRIVE BASE PLATE

DIRECT DRIVE BASE PLATE

The combination of the aluminum stiffening bar and triangulated fiber-reinforced base plate, drive the load directly into the board with minimum distortion and flex which guarantees perfect response to rider input. For 2017 increased fiber content in the baseplate and increased thickness of the stiffening bar, significantly improve the rider connection and durability.
MEMORY FOAM INNER

MEMORY FOAM INNER

We worked extensively to fine-tune the density and memory capabilities of our foam for our footbed and inner boot. The result is supreme comfort with long lasting performance. All bindings have the new ultra-cushion inner with increased overall thickness for additional support.
MOLDED HEEL LOCK

MOLDED HEEL LOCK

The heel lock system keeps your foot firmly connected to the footbed. Even under the heaviest boosting and landing, the updated injection-molded rubber part increases load distribution, comfort and torsion response around your Achilles.
DUAL DENSITY FOOT BED

DUAL DENSITY FOOT BED

The updated dual density footbed creates a soft primary layer that contours to your individual foot shape for maximum comfort, while the denser secondary layer absorbs the high impact landing and prevents the footbed from bottoming out.
