Axis Limited 2018 Kiteboard
The 2018 Axis Limited kiteboard is the ultimate lightweight freestyle weapon. This is the best carbon board Axis have have ever designed. Nothing rides on the water like the AXIS Limited 2018 carbon board.
SIZES: 132x40 / 134x41 / 136x42 / 138x42.5 / 140x43 / 142x44cm
The 2018 Axis Limited is ideal for intermediate and advanced riders looking for the ultimate load and pop board.
The AXIS Limited 2018 is now lighter, at aprx. 2.6kg.
Beneath the surface of the 100% biaxial carbon fibre top and bottom is a solid Paulownia wood core. A 12mm wall makes for a stronger rail that tracks and releases beautifully, while carefully placed uni-directional carbon controls flex at the tips, becoming progressively stiffer towards the centre.
For the 2018 Axis Limited board, the rails are thinner than the FAT rail from 2017.
On the original carbon Limited from 2015, Axis had quite thin rails which made the board a bit nervous and super responsive. By switching to the FAT rail in 2016, Axis gave to the Limited board unparalleled smoothness in choppy conditions. Although the 2016-2017 Limited was much better in choppy conditions we felt that sometimes the board missed some of the original crispness. Mostly in flat water conditions.
The thickness flow of the overall 2018 Limited board is the same as the year before, but a much more even thickness rail to rail. This gives a more predictable flex without point loading the laminate, which results in a stronger board. Axis have achieved this by studying the bending moments of various sections and comparing them from the original Limited 2015, to FAT rail 2016-17 to the new 2018 Limited board. By scaling back the rail thickness, Axis have created an incredible balance of smooth ride and crisp tracking.
