LIVEWIRE

The Livewire is your tool for all forms of freestyle and wakestyle mayhem. Its features keep its positioning strong as the go-to board for boot enthusiasts. The HD Grindrite sintered grindbase and Triple Rocker Channel Tips, in conjunction with the highest rocker in the range, make this the most aggressive and durable freestyle and wakestyle board in our range, ready to tackle both the beach and the cable park.

New to the Livewire is the groundbreaking Nano Rod Technology, 3mm carbon rods embedded within the pressed core in an arc formation. This new technology increases overall durability, high torsional flex, recoil response and impact absorption giving a more refined feel under foot. When combining this technology with the 3D deck and Carbon Torsion Control, you get an amazing and harmonious flex pattern that cannot be compared to any other board.

Utilizing our new ABS reinforced insert 2.0, a thicker core and more reinforcement under foot, your boots have a complete connection to your board. With so much focus on durability and quality, the Livewire is the only board on the market with a two-year warranty that covers the use of boots/bindings. New for 2018.

FMS FLEX RATING

FMS FLEX 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.
