Apex

INTRODUCING AGGRESSIVE FREERIDE

132x40cm | 135x41cm | 138x42cm

Enter the Flip To Win competition to stand a chance to win a 2014 Airush Apex!

Airush introduces the Apex in a new configuration, combining higher rocker, increased width and the new Venturi Concave. The unique concave stabilizes the board at faster speeds and enables the fin area to sit deeper in the water, allowing the rider to use smaller fins for the same level of grip.

The construction features a key innovation in the form of the Asymmetrical 3D Shape. This precision CNC shape enhances the performance of the independent flex tips and Carbon Torsion Control, by aligning the response of the board with the riders weight orientation towards the heel edge.

The Apex’s performance suits intermediate to advanced aggressive riders, while remaining easy and comfortable to use at faster speeds.

  • VENTURI CONCAVE

    VENTURI CONCAVE

    Featured on the Apex the New Venturi Concave, bottom enhances the stability and grip of the board. This is achieved by channeling water away from the fins and concentrating the flow through the center of the board in the tail area.

     

  • BIO TECH CORE

    BIO TECH CORE

    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.

  • DUAL CARBON

    DUAL CARBON

    The Dual Carbon Biotech construction offers an incredible combination of reduced weight with high durability in an intermediate flex board. The additional stiffness of the full Carbon fiber top and bottom layer allow us to reduce the core thickness and materials used, leading to a significant weight saving over a glass board. Both top and bottom decks feature a durable PPT top sheet layer to protect the laminate.

  • 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, ideal for freeride, have significant torsional flex. The Carbon Torsion Control features bias oriented Carbon fiber along the heel edge, reducing the amount of torsional flex in this area. This allows you to ride the board flatter for increasing comfort and speed.

  • INDEPENDENT FLEX TIPS

    INDEPENDENT FLEX TIPS

    The Independent Flex Tips work in conjunction with the Carbon Torsion Control to enhance the stiffness differentiation between heel side and toe side edges. The Carbon Torsion Control stiffens the heel side edge while the independent flex tips allow the toe side edge to remain softer for carving and toeside turns.

  • FMS RATING

    FMS RATING

    Airush introduced FMS rating 4 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 boards length and deflection and lower rating indicating a softer board. Softer boards are more suited to freeride, while stiffer boards are more suited to Freestyle.

Apex

The Apex’s are the widest of the Airush twintips relative to length, and suit intermediates that don’t necessarily want to ride too powered or advanced riders looking for something a bit more forgiving than the Livewire. The Apex has a higher rocker than the Switch so this makes it a good choice in chop.
