SWITCH - Airush Kiteboarding

2017 SWITCH

  • SMOOTH AND COMFORTABLE PERFORMANCE
  • OPTIMUM TIP FLEX
  • PREMIUM COMPONENTS

There’s a good reason why the Switch has been our best-selling twintip board year after year. More versatile and comfort-oriented than any other twintip we make, the Switch can be enjoyed by all riders — from beginner to advanced. Better yet, the 2017 model offers reduced weight for a more precise feel, a new 3D deck for optimized flex, and a wider outline for enhanced upwind performance.

The 2017 model is fitted with our freeride specific AFT, featuring easy adjustability and allowing for easy entry and exit of the straps during freeride manoeuvres.

Key Features

132X38CM I 135X39CM I 138X41CM I 140X42CM
MULTIZONE BIOTECH CORE

MULTIZONE BIOTECH CORE

The Airush Multizone Biotech construction is a vertical Paulownia wood core sandwich. This multilayer construction creates a consistent density from the natural material. Our wood cores are renowned for their response, durability and smoothness, and are combined with a versatile combination of laminates depending on each model’s requirement, for all-round performance and durability.
CARBON TORSION CONTROL

CARBON TORSION CONTROL

Airush Carbon Torsion Control creates a unique performance advantage developed specifically for performance freeride boards. Traditionally higher flex boards, which are ideal for freeride, have significant torsional flex. Carbon Torsion Control features bias oriented carbon fiber along the heel edge which reduces the amount of torsional flex in this area and allows you to ride the board flatter for increased comfort and speed.
FLEX TIPS

FLEX TIPS

The Switch is designed with progressive independent flex tips and a more progressive continuous rocker line. These flex tips allow for a responsive and smooth ride in choppier and high swell conditions.
FMS RATING

FMS RATING

AIRUSH INTRODUCED FMS RATING 6 YEARS AGO AS THE FIRST BRAND TO QUANTIFY HOW MUCH A TWINTIP FLEXES. INSTEAD OF THE GOOD OLD “FEEL” TEST, WHICH CAN BE VERY DECEPTIVE DUE TO THE IMPACT OF THE LENGTH ON THE OVERALL STIFFNESS, FMS TAKES INTO ACCOUNT THE BOARD’S LENGTH AND DEFLECTION. A LOWER RATING INDICATES A SOFTER BOARD MORE SUITED TO FREERIDE, WHILE HIGHER RATED STIFFER BOARDS ARE MORE SUITED TO FREESTYLE.
ABS REINFORCED INSERTS

ABS REINFORCED INSERTS

No more pulled or broken inserts from hard landings or crashes. Featured on all Airush boards, the ABS Reinforced Inserts create the ultimate amount of durability whether riding with Boots or Straps.
