"MORE VERSATILE AND COMFORT-ORIENTED THAN ANY OTHER TWINTIP WE MAKE, THE SWITCH CAN BE ENJOYED BY ALL RIDERS — FROM BEGINNER TO ADVANCED."
- Smooth and comfortable performance
- Optimum tip flex
- Premium Components
There’s a good reason why the Switch has been our best-selling twintip board year after year. More versatile and comfort-oriented than any other twintip we make, the Switch can be enjoyed by all riders — from beginner to advanced. Better yet, the 2017 model offers reduced weight for a more precise feel, a new 3D deck for optimized flex, and a wider outline for enhanced upwind performance.
The 2017 model is fitted with our freeride specific AFT, featuring easy adjustability and allowing for easy entry and exit of the straps during freeride manoeuvres.
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 triaxial laminate, for all-round performance and durability.
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.
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 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.
Featured on the Apex Team and Diamond Series series the unique Venturi Concave bottom enhanced the stability and grip of the board. This is achieved by channeling water away from the fins and concentrating the flow through the centre of the board in the tail area.
TIPS & TUNING
“The Switch is the longest running board model in kiteboarding history. With over 15 years of progression, the Airush Switch remains to be our best seller because of a moderate flex pattern for extremely comfortable feel in flat water or chop, while still having pop and performance for riders looking to add a bit more aggressive riding into their session. This versatile board is amazing for those all around freeriders.”
