APEX - Airush Kiteboarding

APEX

Conçue pour être votre planche polyvalente freeride-freestyle, pour niveaux intermédiaires et avancés, et pour naviguer avec straps ou en chausses, l’Apex reste fidèle à ses racines.

L’Apex a plus de rocker et un flex plus rigide que la Switch ; le « Venturi concave » de la carène permet à l’eau de s’évacuer efficacement au niveau des ailerons pour une meilleure glisse et une meilleure accroche en navigation avec des ailerons plus courts.

La construction et le shape de l’Apex lui confèrent un pop explosif et une bonne résistance aux impacts, surtout lors des réceptions violentes en freestyle, mais aussi si votre but est de battre votre record de high jumps, big air et hang time !

Le corps de la planche « Multi-zone Biotech » (sandwich bois Paulownia) est combiné avec le « Carbon Torsion Control » (fibre carbone dans la zone des talons). Cette construction ultra performante est idéale pour les rideurs qui veulent pousser leurs limites avec des manœuvres puissantes au harnais ou en utilisant le pop de la planche en wakestyle déhooké.

Reflex Glass

With increased stiffness and response compared to the AR Glass construction, the Reflex Glass featured on the Apex and Diamond twintips incorporates elements of torsional response technology found in our more premium and aggressive board offerings. This results in better load, pop, and landings.
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.
VENTURI CONCAVE

VENTURI CONCAVE

THE DEEP VENTURI CONCAVE IN THE APEX ALLOWS FOR A MORE DIRECTIONAL RIDE WITH STRONGER WATER VELOCITY AWAY FROM THE FINS. THIS ALLOWS FOR RIDING WITH SMALLER FINS AND MAKES LANDINGS EASIER.
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.
FREERIDE/FREESTYLE ORIENTED

FREERIDE/FREESTYLE ORIENTED

1: Core Thickness: Oriented from the center to the tips, leaving the center of the tips and rail thin & flexible.

2: Venturi Concave: Giving the board incredible directional stability, with both foot straps and bindings, allowing for more user-friendly performance.

3: Wide Planform Outline: The Apex is ridden wider than usual for its length. This extra tip width enhances upwind performance & overall control with a little extra pop.
FREERIDE/FREESTYLE CROSSOVER ROCKER

FREERIDE/FREESTYLE CROSSOVER ROCKER

This rocker creates the perfect performance between freestyle and hardcore freestyle. The rocker line is designed to be ridden with both footstraps and bindings to cater for all riders, whether they are pushing the limits in Big Air or more wake oriented tricks.
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.
