For 2018/19 AXIS has a new collection of foil boards called the Minimal Volume (MV). The AXIS MV foil boards leverage proven twin tip construction with Paulownia wood core and wide carbon reinforcements on both top and bottom of the board. ABS is used to strengthen and protect the rails. The bottom of the board features foiling specific bevelled rails, a wide carbon reinforcement in the middle of the board, and incredibly stiff construction for direct feel and foil response.
This is not your beginner flexible wood board that flops around loosing it’s rocker like and flex while foiling. This is a high performance board, that gives you an incredibly direct feel under your feet, which is what you want when you are foiling. This boards go together perfectly with our AXIS Freeride Foil.
The finish of the board has plush EVA foam covering the complete top deck of the board, with our signature circular graphics both on the top and bottom of the board. Construction photo of the bottom of the board shows what’s behind the beautiful graphics.
The Ride MV is the largest model in the MV collection at 145cm x 45cm. Based on the carbon construction Ride 48 – the Ride MV has plenty of volume to get any level of rider up and going. It’s also a very strong board that can take more abuse than the traditional foil boards on the market. Great for beginner riders, who are not as efficient with their gear. The Ride MV is also ideal for boat foilers, wake foilers etc.
The Free MV (125 x 45cm) and Kink MV (105 x 45cm) are smaller, with less volume and are designed for freestyle junkies who live to 180-360 and cruise around without much touching down. A 45cm width is used across all the models as testing found that it is an ideal all round width for both beginner / intermediate and freestylers alike.
Make sure you ask a local shop for a demo!
