AIRUSH SWITCH EXILE KITEBOARD 2017
2017 SWITCH EXILE
145X44.5CM I 155X46CM
SMOOTH AND COMFORTABLE PERFORMANCE
OPTIMUM TIP FLEX
For the Switch Exile, we have designed a board that is almost as wide in the tips as in the center, which allows for advanced immediate planning ability in light wind. The outline also features an asymmetrical shape with a curved toe side rail, making toe transitioning and carving on a board of this size incredibly smooth and easy. The Switch Exile board is surprisingly agile for its size, while maintaining its lightwind abilities.
This year the Exile is supplied with an extra set of two Metro 40 fins to allow for extra rail bite and upwind ability.
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. Our wood cores are renowned for their response, durability and 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 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 which reduces the amount of torsional flex in this area and allows you to ride the board flatter for increased comfort and speed.
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.
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.
