Discipline: Freeride Freestyle
Staying true to its roots, the Apex has been designed as your all-round intermediate to advanced freeride/freestyle board, to be ridden with footstraps or boots.
Featuring a higher rocker and stiffer more continuous flex pattern than the Switch, while having the deep Venturi concaved bottom shape, results in the flow of water being forced away from the fins.
These features combined give the Apex amazing pop and impact resistance on hard landings for those throwing down freestyle tricks, freeriding, or trying to beat their Big Air scores.
Featuring the Multi-zone Biotech Core combined with carbon torsional control carbon ber tape, this board is perfect for the rider pushing their limits with hooked and unhooked powered tricks.
MULTIZONE BIOTECH CORE
THE AIRUSH MULTIZONE BIOTECH CONSTRUCTION IS A VERTICAL PAULOWNIA WOOD CORE SANDWICH. THIS MULTILAYER CONSTRUCTION CREATES A CONSISTENT DENSITY FROM THE NATURAL MATERIAL. OUR WOOD CORES ARE RENOWNED FOR THEIR RESPONSE, DURABILITY AND SMOOTHNESS, AND ARE COMBINED WITH A VERSATILE COMBINATION OF LAMINATES DEPENDING ON EACH MODEL’S REQUIREMENT, FOR ALL-ROUND PERFORMANCE AND DURABILITY.
THE NEW APEX TEAM IS BUILT WITH 3K CARBON. THE 3K CARBON ALLOWS FOR A LIGHTER AND MORE RESPONSIVE RIDE. MAKING USE OF THE 3K CARBON ALLOWS FOR THE CORE THICKNESS TO BE REDUCED WHILE KEEPING THE BOARD’S STRENGTH, DURABILITY AND ALL ROUND FREESTYLE/FREERIDE PERFORMANCE AT AN OPTIMAL LEVEL.
THE DEEP VENTURI CONCAVE IN THE APEX ALLOWS FOR A MORE DIRECTIONAL RIDE WITH STRONGER WATER VELOCITY AWAY FROM THE FINS. THIS ALLOWS FOR RIDING WITH SMALLER FINS AND MAKES LANDINGS EASIER.
ABS REINFORCED INSERTS
NO MORE PULLED OR BROKEN INSERTS FROM HARD LANDINGS OR CRASHES. FEATURED ON ALL AIRUSH BOARDS, THE ABS REINFORCED INSERTS CREATE THE ULTIMATE AMOUNT OF DURABILITY WHETHER RIDING WITH BOOTS OR STRAPS.
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 BOARD’S LENGTH AND DEFLECTION. A LOWER RATING INDICATES A SOFTER BOARD MORE SUITED TO FREERIDE, WHILE HIGHER RATED STIFFER BOARDS ARE MORE SUITED TO FREESTYLE.
