From it’s premium construction to the groundbreaking shape; the Airush Apex 2018 suits intermediate to advanced aggressive freeriders.
Airush Apex 2018
Staying true to its roots, the Airush Apex 2018 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. This 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 fiber tape. This board is perfect for the rider pushing their limits with hooked and unhooked powered tricks.
Increased stiffness and response compared to the AR Glass construction. The Reflex Glass featured on the Apex and Diamond twintips incorporates elements of torsional response technology found in our more premium and aggressive board offerings. This results in better load, pop, and landings.
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. The wood cores are renowned for their response, durability and smoothness. Combined with a versatile combination of laminates depending on each model’s requirement, 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, which are ideal for freeride, have significant torsional flex. Carbon torsion control features bias oriented carbon fiber along the heel edge. It reduces the amount of torsional flex in this area and allows you to ride the board flatter for increased comfort and speed.
The deep venturi concave in the Airush Apex 2018 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.
Freeride / Freestyle Oriented
1: Core Thickness: Oriented from the center to the tips, leaving the center of the tips and rail thin & flexible.
2: Venturi Concave: Giving the board incredible directional stability, with both foot straps and bindings, allowing for more user-friendly performance.
3: Wide Planform Outline: The Airush Apex 2018 is ridden wider than usual for its length. This extra tip width enhances upwind performance & overall control with a little extra pop.
Freeride / Freestyle Crossover Rocker
This rocker creates the perfect performance between freestyle and hardcore freestyle. The rocker line is designed to be ridden with both footstraps and bindings to cater for all riders, whether they are pushing the limits in Big Air or more wake oriented tricks.
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.
