All New AXIS Progressive Rear Wings

AXIS shares its latest obsession…

We obsess over rear wings, almost to the point that it’s a problem. We’ve tried to get professional help but the prototypes just keep getting churned out by our design team on a weekly basis, and we can’t help but test, analyse, pontificate, redesign – and on and on it goes.

You may be thinking – why do rear wings matter? Aren’t they just stabilizers to balance the front wing? Well that’s what many thought too – in the very early days. We know that your rear wing can change your life. Okay that’s not quite true, but it will significantly affect the ride characteristics of your whole foil set up.

 

You Notice the Difference in Your First Carve

 

We got super hooked on the locked in, fast, stable feel of the Speed 380/60 and 420/60 rear wings, and still are for flat water blasting and racing for winging and big, fast waves for foil surfing. But we had a feeling we still had more to give our riders in the turning department. After several iterations and tweaks, the new Progressive 350/63, 375/64, 400/65 and 425/66 rears have delivered it in spades.

Medium aspect, with a thin foil section and subtle turned down tips, this new design rolls into the turn beautifully, feels fluid and loose, and also grips through the carve and transitions back out the other side with predictable control and positive acceleration. Even intermediate foilers will notice the difference straight away. It’s super well behaved in rough winging conditions (just set and forget) and with the thin foil section it’s still rewardingly quick. The Progressive rear wings will feel like a natural extension of your feet.

Riders are finding the Progressive rears pair beautifully with our ART high aspect foils in particular, and they’ll work very well with any foil for riders looking to improve their turns and carves. As always, size your Progressive rear wing to your experience and front wing size.  (larger sizes for less experienced riders and larger front wing pairings).

We can’t wait to see you lay it over and let rip!
