The Switch Sonic Progression Board gives the best combination of freeride fun in light wind conditions while maintaining the smooth and playful characteristics of a normal twintip. The Progression composite construction instills confidence for entry-level users, and offers a robust construction, perfect for those starting and a school environment.
The Airush Multi-zone Biotech construction, a vertical Paulownia wood core sandwich, creates a consistent density from the natural material allowing for a predictable and responsive ride.
The Progression range twintips feature an ABS rail to make sure that your board can handle impact through various stages of progression.
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 flattest rocker specifically designed for lightwind riding. This rocker makes sure the board starts planning 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.
