Kiteboarding gathers more and more fans with every moment which passes. At the same time, freeride tends to become one of the most popular kiteboarding styles. As this style becomes moer popular, the needs of the freeriders become more and more demanding. The new Pulse by Axon is the perfect board to meet all these needs and take freeride to a whole new level. Axon has developed this board using the latest technology and the fines fabrics, to make sure it will meet the most exigent quality standards. It is quite powerful, fast, and very easy to maneuver, therefore it is perfect for any type of rider. From the first moment you set foot on this board, you will love the way it performs and you will never want to part from it.

Axon has proven that is one of the best kiteboard manufacturers today. It has released only high quality boards over the years, boards which shaped a lot of pro riders and champs. The new 2011 Pulse by Axon has arrived to complete the freeride series of boards. Together with the Rhythm and Relic, the Pulse is just what any rider needs to take freeride to a whole new dimension.

The board is engineered using a hydrodynamic shape and a slightly squared outline. These features make it very agile and assure a fast and smooth glide. The board has a wider profile, so it is extra stable and can support easily a heavier rider. Even if it is not very long, the slick outlines and the wider shape make it feel exactly like a narrower, longer model. It is very lively out on the waves, and it offers nice jumps, fast turns and extra hangtime. It has plenty of power for the rider who enjoys extreme maneuvers, but it is easy to handle and very responsive, so it is also great for a less experienced one. The board has a medium flex which assures extra maneuverability in any wave and wind conditions. The R30 rocker is provides extra top speed, increases the acceleration and steering response. Axon has used the innovative Suave Concave bottom design, so the board has a perfect power release, is very stable and has excellent grip.

The 3D Intellicore technology used by the manufacturer is based on a Paulownia wood core shaped by a CNC machine which assures a balanced tensile strength and light weight. This structure is complemented by triaxial glass layups. The tips of the board are using a “Magic Fingertips” design which significantly improves the flex and absorbs the shocks. Extra durability is assured by the use of ABS composites in the construction of the sidewalls.

The board features a Shockproof UV Topsheet which minimizes the shocks resulted from wave impact and protects the board from the UV light damage. The Axon Pulse is imprinted with a unique graphic design which really makes it stand out in the crowd.

Pulse is a pretty large board, suited for a bigger rider. I'm around 85 kilos and 1.87m, so it suits me great. It is not extremely long, but rather wide and gives you a great feeling of stability and comfort when riding it. Edge control is heavier,...more

This is pure freeride. The Pulse is fast and agile and gives you total control. It runs nice when the wind barely blows, although it is not a light wind board. In average wind speeds it is amazing. You can do everything you think of with it. Toy c...more
