The Protoy is suited to the rider looking for refined freestyle performance with riding comfort that is normally only found in a free-ride board. The secret lies in the unique double concave bottom, combined with a continuous rocker and 3-stage outline, making the Protoy work perfectly in just about any conditions.
The updated 3-Stage outline improves the stability at faster speeds and increases the pop for the more freestyle oriented rider. The shape performs in conjunction with the high level of damping and response found in our multi-zone Bio-tech core, combined with the Full Dual Carbon construction.
The ABS flip tip enhances ride comfort, specifically in choppier water, by preventing the nose of the board from pearling and directing spray from the nose forward and away from the rider.
The Airush Quad Carbon Bio-tech construction is a vertical wood core sandwich comprising of a Paulownia core with ABS rail and tips. Through significant development of the quad layer multi-axial 100% carbon construction, we have been able to reduce overall weight for the same relative stiffness by up to 40%. However the true secret to the performance is felt in the refinement of the responsiveness, where the four carbon layers are directionally optimized for torsional and longitudinal response. The result is an incredible combination of explosive pop, improved control on landing and increased ride comfort.
Introducing the FMS rating 4 years ago, Airush was the first brand to quantify how much a twin-tip flexes. Instead of the good old “feel” test, which can be very deceptive due to the length of the overall stiffness. FMS takes into account the boards length, deflection and lower rating, indicating a softer board. Softer boards are more suited to freeride, while stiffer boards are more suited to Freestyle.
The Airush Multizone Biotech construction is a vertical wood core sandwich comprising of a dual density Balsa and Poplar core with ABS rail and tips. The higher density poplar stringer creates a hyper responsive center section while the outer balsa section minimizes the weight. Our wood cores are renowned for their response, durability and smoothness, and are combined with a versatile tri axial laminate for all-round performance and durability.
