  • 3D intellicore – CNC machined, 3D cut, Paulownia wood core; wood is a durable and lightweight material that has plenty of pop. Furthermore, by using a single sheet of laminate instead of multiple laminate sheets, Axon gets the stiffness and response they want from the board.
  • Magic fingertips – at the tips of the board you will notice 5 “fingers” 3D cut and molded into the core of the board. These 5 “fingers” are meant to provide more response and reflex when popping out of the water.
  • Suave concave – a 3mm concave meant to offer a controlled and comfortable ride.
  • Square outline – an efficient and controlled outline that offers power and drive as well as early planning. The square outline helps the board maintain its speed.
  • R30 rocker – designed to offer the most versatile riding, the rocker is not too flat nor is it too curved; it is just right. When the rocker is too flat, the nose of the board has a tendency to bury in the chop. When the rocker is too curved, you don’t get enough drive and power.
  • Shockproof UV top sheet – a top quality plastic top and bottom sheet that protects against scratches, harmful UV rays, and shocks that cold damage the board. Axon uses a new and unique printing process to digitally print graphics onto the top sheet.
  • ABS sidewalls – makes for a lightweight yet rigid board. ABS, which is short for Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene, is well known for its durability.
  • Triaxial glass – fiberglass cloth woven at 3 angles is the standard for top performance boards; it gives strength and flex in every direction.
  • Glossy finish – a shiny, good looking finish.

You must know that 3 models are part of Axon’s 2010 freeride range. The 3 models I am talking about are the Relic, the Rhythm, and the Pulse. At 133 x 41cm, the Rhythm places itself in the middle of the range.

The Relic, at 130 x 40cm, is the introductory size in Axon’s freeride range. I only mentioned the Relic to get to this: the Rhythm has a similar square outline as the Relic and has pretty much the same increased underfoot surface area as the Relic. The square outline and increased underfoot surface area translates to seamless planning. The Rhythm, just like the Relic, planes and generates power incredibly easy.

Out of all the boards in Axon’s 2010 freeride range, the Rhythm is the most freestyle friendly. This is all thanks to its concave, rocker, flex, and length to width ratio. The Rhythm is big enough to plane easily and to offer smooth landings, yet small enough to be playful and maneuverable.

The great thing about the Rhythm is that it can be used by any type of rider, from the novice who is just now picking up the basics and consequently needs an easy to use and reliable board, up to the experienced rider who already knows just about all there is to know and consequently wants a top performance board that can be used in all types of conditions.
