AXIS High Modulus Carbon Mast
AXIS High Modulus Masts have a new and greatly improved base connection design. While fully compatible with all existing Red & Black fuselage, a new installation technique/method is required, this involves simply inserting the mast leading edge first into the fuselage opening, then rotating the trailing edge down. Removal is done in reverse, trailing edge rotates out first... super simple!
Remember use only 30mm M8 bolts to attach fuselage to Power Carbon masts
Recent developments in foil design and performance (high aspect ratios and broader spans) demand stiffer, more direct and positive connections than current masts deliver.
Bend (lateral distortion) and twist/torsion (rotation around the mast’s length or torque axis) compromise connection, control, speed and ultimately the hydrodynamic efficiency of your hydrofoil’s potential. The stiffer the mast, the better the connection to the foil system and more importantly the untapped potential of high-performance foil designs can be fully realised.
High Modulus which goes even further to provide additional strength and more bend resistance for ultimate performance for the discerning and heavier riders on the broadest of front foils.
The new High Modulus Carbon fibre used in our mast layup is considerably stiffer and stronger than the regular carbon fibre used in conventional constructions. Innovative, considered and balanced placement of materials in our proprietary production process paired with rigorous testing has delivered a breathtaking performance leap.
The result is a positive connected feel, direct drive, immediate feedback and ultimate control. High aspect foils perform as they should, feel and control enter an entirely new realm.
