The 2011 kiteboard models released by Axon are truly impressive. Their team seems to have developed boards which suit all styles and skills. From pro to novice riders, anyone can find the perfect kiteboarding machine to suit his needs. The 2011 Relic is engineered to take freeride to a whole new level and can be used by any kind of rider.

Beginner riders will love how easy the board can be controlled and the extra stability, while advanced ones will definitely like the power and speed it offers. The great thing about this board is that it is easy to power up and offers a fast glide in light wind conditions and it also performs great if the wind picks up. It is constructed using the latest technology and the finest fabrics, to meet the highest quality standards and the needs of the most demanding riders out there.

The 2011 Axon Relic is designed with usability and efficiency in mind. Axon wanted to create a board which excels at freeride and offers extra pop for the hardcore riders, while it is easy to use and user friendly for the beginner ones. And the manufacturer has done an awesome job, since the Relic is a great all round freeride machine. The board features an ergonomic shape and a slick, square outline.

This profile allows it to sprint smoothly and fast through the waves. At the same time, the board is slightly wider, so it is extra stable and gives the rider the confidence to perform any maneuver. The board has impressive upwind, downwind and early planning abilities and offers a nice power boost. The rider can enjoy a fast run, can perform jumps and lifts easy and without effort. But freeride is not all about power and speed, it is about control also. The board is very maneuverable and offers a direct and responsive control at all times. It has a moderate flex and a smooth R30 rocker which assure optimal speed and excellent steering response. The bottom features a smooth concave design, so the board has plenty of grip and stability and it performs predictable in any wind and wave conditions. The Axon Relic is a great freeride board for any type of rider, regardless of skill and weight. It is agile and dynamic and performs outstanding.

The board is engineered using an innovative technology developed by Axon.  This 3D Intellicore technology used by Axon is based on a Paulownia wood core shaped by a CNC machine which assures perfect tensile strength and light weight, combined with triaxial glass layups. The tips of the board are enhanced by “Magic Fingertips” which significantly improve the flex. 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 potential damage. This amazing structure makes the Axon Relic bomb proof and extra light at the same time.

It is steady and runs fine in any conditions. Might not be what you need in light wind, but with a little effort you can use it in light breezes too. It responds immediately to any maneuver and you can rely heavy on the edges without problems. Lan...more
