This board has the same shape as the successful Patrol but is lighter and more responsive. The Ultra shares the same mold but the composites used to create the Ultra Patrol make this board the highest performance light wind twin tip in the Axis lineup.
This board's Paulownia wood core and carbon top and bottom sheet make this board lightweight and responsive. The flat bottom rocker and a limited amount of dual concave reduce the amount of drag but still gives it a competitive edge against the competition in terms of grip and stability. The board is available in both the 144 x 45 and 148 x 47 so that not matter the wind or riders weight, people can have an exceptional lightwind machine that will match in performance.
The 2014 AXIS Ultra has a durable clear TPU foil top and bottom sheet, which is mostly clear to highlight the pure carbon lay-up with screen printed graphics. This gives a finish that is hard to scratch, with solid colors, which will keep its good looks for a long-time.
The core is strip planked Paulownia wood core; this material is light and strong. We’ve chosen Paulownia 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 Biaxial lightweight carbon with additional Uni carbon reinforcing. The combination of the carbon lay-up and carbon reinforcements provides a very lightweight board with very powerful flex for MASSIVE pop and incredibly SOFT landings. The Biaxial carbon takes a beating.
