2014 Axis Patrol Complete With Pads, Straps, Fins & Handle.
This board has a flatter shape and less complicated bottom concave to make it much faster due to less drag. The Patrol freestyle performance in light winds has increased as well. This board has a much larger surface area making it easier to plane and allowing the rider to feel much more power from the kite in extremely light winds. Because of the two new dimensions available and it’s design changes, riders can get out on the lighter days and still enjoy a maneuverable and playful board.
The 2014 Patrol has a dedicated core shape in two sizes 144 x 45 and 148 x 47. The Patrol is the price point version of the 2014 Axis Ultra. It has a durable Coax PBT foil top and bottom sheet, which is digitally sublimated. This gives a finish that is hard to scratch, with bright colors, which will keep its good looks for a long time.
The rails are made from a black colored ABS. The ABS material is very tough and is a special formula that bonds very well to epoxy.
The core is strip planked Paulownia wood core; this material is light and strong. Paulownia is used because it is a very fast growing timber and one of the most sustainable timbers that you could have for a core. The AXIS product team has been using Paulownia for over 8 years now, with excellent results.
The laminate is 420 gram Biaxial fiberglass with Uni carbon reinforcing. The combination of the glass and carbon provides a very durable board with great controlled flex for excellent pop.
The AXIS Patrol features Uni Carbon on both the top and bottom of the board. This way you get the maximum effect from the carbon, enhancing the board's performance. The boards have a dedicated heel side edge with the Uni Carbon indicated by the inserts.
