AXIS release the PRO – Ultra High Modulus Carbon Masts

The AXIS design gurus have been at it again, as they release the new PRO – Ultra High Modulus Carbon Masts.



Affectionately named the ‘dogleg' by the test team, the PRO – Ultra High Modulus Carbon is quite a departure from the industry's more conventional masts.

Building on the impressive performance and stiffness of our existing Carbon mast program, the PRO – Ultra High Modulus Carbon boasts an unbelievable 55% increase in stiffness and incredible torsional rigidity as compared to our industry-standard 19mm Alloy mast. (By comparison, our Power Carbon and Power Carbon High Modulus are 25% and 35% stiffer respectively).

Not just stiffer, but thinner and narrower, with a 12.5mm reduction in chord in the bottom half of the mast (compared to power carbon masts), and a 1.5mm reduction in thickness (13.5mm thickness in the bottom section of the mast where it counts).

Another factor that sets this mast apart from the rest, is its radical new and unconventional foil section. It's quite a departure from conventional foil sections that have a tendency to become ‘locked In' as speed increases. Our exclusive PRO Mast foil section has its widest point moved back on the mast, allowing freer turning at any speed. Our modelling predicted 20% less drag, but didn't prepare us for its slippery willingness to go fast and turn like nothing we've experienced.

As the name implies the PRO – Ultra High Modulus Carbon is constructed from military grade ultra-high modulus materials, which, while they raise the cost of production, do provide the ultimate ride.

The PRO – Ultra High Modulus Carbon ships in a custom high-quality protective mast bag and is completely compatible with all our products.
Available in 3 sizes, 800mm (31.49″), 900mm (35.43″), 1050mm (41.33″).

Matching the PRO – Ultra High Modulus Carbon with any of your existing AXIS foils will elevate your foiling experience to the next level.
The PRO – Ultra High Modulus Carbon has wowed every team rider who has tried it, and has even proved itself in competition, delivering gold medals in Downwind competitions in Hawaii and France.
