Freestyle is one of the most spectacular and popular kiteboarding disciplines. Apart from talent and determination it requires reliable gear. If you are a dedicated freestyler and you already have a good kite, than it is time to get yourself a good freestyle board. And one of the best freestyle and new school boards available today is the Takoon Lux. The Lux packs explosive pop and extreme power, yet it is comfortable and fun to ride. It is crafted using wakeboarding technology, it is light and durable and performs great in a multitude of wave and wind conditions.

The Takoon Lux is the ultimate freestyle weapon. Crafting a freestyle board which blends power, pop and speed with unmatched control and comfort was not an easy task, but the Takoon team has made it. This board excels in a wide range of conditions and it can satisfy the needs of the most demanding riders. The board has a compact profile and special designed tips.

This shape provides a smooth glide and a fast speed and allows the rider to tackle any wave. The explosive pop gives the rider the chance to experience the ultimate freestyle thrill, while the exceptional control allows him to handle the board without effort. The unique rocker line provides instant acceleration and assures outstanding upwind performance. The wing shape of the tips assures extra grip and improved control for the rider looking to perform aggressive maneuvers.

The 3D bottom shape delivers extra power and also increases the overall stability. The central fins integrated in the tips area allow the rider to perform power moves fast and easy. The great thing about the Lux is that it can always be used as a wakestyle board if you get tired of freestyle tricks. The flex pattern is perfect for advanced riders. The stiffer center area is complemented by flexible tips which provide extra pop and make the board very reactive. The Takoon Lux is built using the latest technology and the best composites.

It is crafted using Paulownia Wood core combined with biaxial laminates and ABS sidewalls. This construction generates the unique flex pattern and makes the board light and virtually indestructible. The new pads and straps are easy to adjust and assure optimal comfort as well as a strong connection between feet and deck. The Takoon Lux is definitely one of the boards which provide an exceptional freestyle experience.
