The Switch Sonic Board is the benchmark for light-wind twin-tip riding with a wider outline and extremely flat rocker for early planing. The standard construction featured on the Switch Sonic is perfect for everyday light-wind users looking for a board that can get them riding while others are standing on the beach.
Featuring the Multi-zone Biotech Core, the Switch Sonic brings all the durable and responsive characteristics from standard twintips into the lightwind board to allow and create a fun lightwind freeride board.
This classic layup found on the Switch Sonic and Switch Sonic Progression is focused on durability and responsiveness, ensuring a perfect combination for freeriding needs. This construction is simple yet effective for soft, easy and forgiving riding.
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.
The Ultra-Flex tip shape and narrow tip outline found in the Switch & Switch Sonic ranges is designed to give the most forgiving and softest ride in our range.
1: Center Spine: Reduced stiffness around the tips to maintain a high level of stability underfoot to prevent unwanted distortion.
2: Venturi Concave: Increased planing ability, allowing for a more user-friendly, forgiving, ride.
3: Freeride Outline: With extra curve along the rail, having the tips narrower in relation to the central width allows for smooth carving and easy rail to rail transitioning.
LOW LIGHTWIND ROCKER LINE
This rocker is our attest rocker specically designed for lightwind riding. This rocker makes sure the board starts planing in incredibly light wind and results in reduced drag between the board’s base and the water surface.
FMS FLEX RATING
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.
