Staying true to its roots, the Apex 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, 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 ber tape, this board is perfect for the rider pushing their limits with hooked and unhooked powered tricks.
With increased stiffness and response compared to the AR Glass Construction, the Reflex Glass featured on the Apex and Diamond twintips incorporates elments of torsial response technology found in our more premium and agressive board offerings. This results in better load, pop and landings.
Multizone Biotech Core:
The Airush Multizone Biotech Contruction is a vertical Paulownia Wood Core Sandwich. This multilayer construction creates a consistent densityfrom the natural material. Our wood cores are renowned for their response, durability abd smoothness, and are 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 perfromance 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 which 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 Apex allows for a more directional ride with stonger water velocity away from the fins. This allows for riding wih smaller fins and makes landing 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
Core thickness: oriented from the center to the tips, leaving the center of the tips and rail thin and flexible.
Venturi Concave: Giving the board incredible directional stability, with both foot straps and bindings, allowing for more userfreindly performance.
Wide Planform outline: The Apex is ridden wider than usual for it's length. This extra tip width enhances upwind performance & overall control with a little extra pop.
Freeride / Freetyle crossover rocker
This rocker creates the perfect performance between freestyle and hardcore freestyle. the rocker is designed to be ridden with both footsraps and bindings to cater for all riders, whether they are pushing the limits in big air or more wake oriented tricks.
