2019 Airush Switch V9
- Ultimate freeride machine
- Smooth cruising full flex tips
- Cross Bracing technology
* Comes complete with pads & straps
The longest running board model in kiteboarding history, the Switch is the ultimate and most refined freeride machine. Although the overall outline of the Switch has remained the same, a significant change in the 3D deck contouring has improved the flex characteristics for excellent comfort and weight reduction, giving this board a smoother and livelier riding experience.
The Airush Multi-zone Biotech Construction is a vertical Paulownia wood core sandwich; this multilayer construction creates a consistent density from the natural material. This core construction allows us to design the boards with a broad thickness variance throughout the deck. The Flex Tip technology featured on our Switch range orients the board’s stiffness through the center between the rider’s feet to increase under foot stability while allowing the tips of the board to flex freely, resulting in an ultra-smooth and comfortable ride.
The cross-bracing technology supports the flexible tips from over flexing, and hence increasing durability, by orienting composite tape diagonally across the tips of the board.
This classic layup found on the Switch and Switch 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.
MULTI-ZONE 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 Switch is designed with Progressive Independent Flex Tips and a more progressive continuous rocker line. These flex tips allow for a responsive and smooth ride in choppier and high swell conditions.
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.
