AXIS ARTPro 1201 & Skinny Rear Wing Release

AXIS roll up with an exciting new launch…


After the great reception the ART1099 received, it seemed obvious that we should build a bigger one. We swung into action with the intent of rolling out an ART1199… that’s where the 2-year ARTPRO odyssey began.

Leading the charge is the ARTPRO 1201, designed for fast downwinding and bigger guys, but don’t get the wrong impression. This is the wing Dylan Bez prone paddled up for a World Record Marathon 3hr and 6min continuous Surf pump session. (He left his board shorts at home so went out in work shorts, he had to stop because it got dark, Averaging 18.8km/h and covering a whopping 58km in distance all without getting wet again)
The design requirements of the ARTPRO 1201, were unprecedented glide, fast and nimble feel, unparalleled large span turning, great breach control, crucial for a wing of this span and finally early lift and low stall speed.

If you're a downwinder looking for that missing gear between the PNG1300 and the HPS1050, this is your wing.
If you're a light-wind winger or heavier rider looking for a high-performance wing this is the wing for you.
If you're a prone surfer wanting to link more waves in smaller conditions, this is the wing for you.

Based on our Black fuselage platform, ARTPRO 1201 will slot straight into your existing quiver, but really comes alive when paired with our Black Advance fuselages and our Skinny rear wings.

What can you expect from the ARTPRO range?

Each member of the ARTPRO Range (More sizes and details to follow soon) is a wing in its own right, not simply scaled versions of its closest sibling. All the ARTPRO‘s share the following:

  • An extended elliptical outline, with the tips removed.
  • A straight median line for better turning and control.
  • Narrower chords for lower drag overall.
  • Less overall turn down especially in the tips.
  • Less complicated shapes in general.

AXIS Skinny Rear Wings 
365/55, 362/50, 360/45, 359/40, 358/35

The development of the much faster-running ARTPRO wings prompted us to begin experimenting with reduced chord rear stabilisers to maximise this newfound speed advantage. With minimal span changes (just 7mm between them) and drastic chord reduction down to 55, 50, 45, 40 and 35mm, we found positive gains in speed, control, balance and feel. The Skinnies have inherited many of the same characterises that make our Progressive range so popular, like the precise feel and seamless turn initiation plus recovery.

The Skinniy rear wings inspire confidence by providing a more comfortable ride at speed, they reduce the normal buildup of front foot pressure that can be associated with high-speed foiling. They are a perfect match to ARTPRO foils, but keep in mind, your HPS, ART, PNG and even BSC, will equally benefit from the Skinny high-performance DNA.
