- Ultimate freeride machine.
- Smooth cruising full flex tips.
- Cross Bracing technology.
The longest running board model in kiteboarding history, the Switch is the ultimate and most refined freeride machine. Although the overall outline of the Switch has remained the same, a significant change in the 3D deck contouring has improved the flex characteristics for excellent comfort and weight reduction, giving this board a smoother and livelier riding experience.
The Airush Multi-zone Biotech Construction is a vertical Paulownia wood core sandwich; this multilayer construction creates a consistent density from the natural material. This core construction allows us to design the boards with a broad thickness variance throughout the deck. The Flex Tip technology featured on our Switch range orients the board’s stiffness through the center between the rider’s feet to increase under foot stability while allowing the tips of the board to flex freely, resulting in an ultra-smooth and comfortable ride.
The cross-bracing technology supports the flexible tips from over flexing, and hence increasing durability, by orienting composite tape diagonally across the tips of the board.
MULTI-ZONE BIOTECH CORE
2.0 ABS REINFORCED INSERTS
The Ultra-Flex tip shape and narrow tip outline found in the Switch & Switch Sonic ranges is designed to give the most forgiving and softest ride in our range.
1: Center Spine: Reduced stiffness around the tips to maintain a high level of stability underfoot to prevent unwanted distortion.
2: Venturi Concave: Increased planing ability, allowing for a more user-friendly, forgiving, ride.
3: Freeride Outline: With extra curve along the rail, having the tips narrower in relation to the central width allows for smooth carving and easy rail to rail transitioning.
- Entry level freeride.
- Durable ABS rail.
- Standard 2D deck shape.
The Switch Progression takes the ever-popular design and construction of the Switch into a super easy and comfortable board to start and to continue your kiteboarding progression.
For all-round entry-level freeride, the Switch Progression features a parallel outline and a refined and smooth flex pattern combined with a flatter rocker for amazing easy planing and upwind ability.
The Switch Progression features the Multi-zone Biotech Construction – a vertical Paulownia wood core sandwich. This multilayer construction creates a consistent density using the natural material. The Progression range is constructed with an ABS rail to make sure that your board stays strong and can handle impact through the early stages of progression.
AK BOOST FOOTSTRAPS
Simplicity, comfort, and durability are the primary focuses of the Boost Strap. With a single Velcro closure, the strap is quick and easy to tighten and loosen for various foot sizes with or without booties.
The Boost Strap features a Dual Density footbed, which is molded with a soft layer that contours to your foot shape, while the denser secondary layer absorbs the impact from monster landings.
The Boost Strap offers two size options to fit the smallest to the largest foot.
