AXIS 2018 Limited - this kiteboard is the ultimate lightweight freestyle weapon. The 2018 Limited is the best carbon board we have ever designed. Here is why:
We started from the 2017 AXIS Limited outline, channels, rocker and FAT rail. While we maintained the outline which has proven itself over the past 3 years, we wanted to create a brand new base shape and a totally redesigned thickness/tapered flow.
The base retains the key features that our riders loved in 2017, but we dialed them back by 70%, which reduces drag on the water. The new base makes the board even faster and more stable, while the tracking and smoothness of the ride are also improved. Beneath the surface of the 100% biaxial carbon fibre laminate top and bottom is a solid Paulownia wood core. A 12mm wall makes for a stronger rail that tracks and releases beautifully, while carefully placed uni-directional carbon controls flex at the tips, becoming progressively stiffer towards the centre.
For the 2018 AXIS Limited board, the rails are thinner than the FAT rail from 2017. On the original carbon Limited from 2015, we had quite thin rails which made the board a bit nervous and super responsive. By switching to the FAT rail in 2016, we gave to the Limited board unparalleled smoothness in choppy conditions.
Although the 2016-2017 Limited was much better in choppy conditions we felt that sometimes the board missed some of the original crispness - mostly in flat water conditions.
The overall thickness flow of the 2018 Limited board is the same as the year before, but a much more uniform thickness rail to rail. This gives a more predictable flex without point loading the laminate resulting in a stronger board. We have achieved this by studying the bending moments of various sections and comparing them from the original Limited 2015, to FAT rail 2016-17 to the new 2018 Limited board.
By scaling back the rail thickness, we created an incredible balance of smooth ride and crisp tracking. Nothing rides on the water like the AXIS Limited 2018 carbon board.
As an additional bonus the AXIS Limited 2018 is lighter, at approx 2.6kg . We also added a new size for those lighter days or bigger riders: 142 x 44cm.
Target riding style: Freeride/freestyle
With 100% carbon laminate, ETR (Even Thickness Rail), we have delivered a stiff, lightweight and very smooth riding board for huge airs and powerful tricks
The AXIS Limited 2018 140 x 43cm was also used as the platform for the podium winning AXIS Limited IKA board. If you are serious about Twin Tip Racing, and Youth Olympics, then look no further – the AXIS Limited IKA board dominates every podium worldwide.
