- Ultramarines-light and responsive giving a Dynamic ride
HRD is a unique feature using a process that allows for the rails of the board to be shaped in 3D. There are three sections to the rail as it runs the length of the board. In the middle of the board, the rail is thin for grip and improved upwind ability, under the feet the rail is inverted and curved like a surfboard rail allowing the board to smoothly track through chop and improving its carving ability. As the rail reaches the tips, it thins out again, allowing superior grip and bite to give excellent pop.
The carbon series benefits from a high-tech construction, which incorporates carbon fiber to provide extra strength and stiffness, allowing a reduction in the mass of material used in the board. Combined with an ultra-light-weight top-sheet layer, this results in a much lighter board, which makes a significant difference on the water where you can push your moves even further. The carbon construction also makes the board very responsive as it reacts instantly to all of the demands of the rider.
On the water, the TRAX HRD Carbon Series offers an instant feeling of speed and performance, the HRD rail eliminates spray and feels very comfortable regardless of the water conditions. The flex has been tuned with the properties of carbon fibre to provide the best pop off the water; the tips are exceedingly responsive and help to launch you into the air when you load up the edge for take-off. When it comes to landings, the wide outline and channelled base combine to smooth things out and allow you to retain control at all times.
The board is so popular because it works for such a wide variety of riders, from experts in freestyle to beginners and everyone in between, the TRAX is an excellent choice. Combining early planing, upwind ability and control, there is plenty of performance at your disposal when you need it. From flat water to harsh chop, the TRAX can handle it. Get ready for a ride like no other!
Helical Rail Design
A True Revolution, the Helical Rail Design (H.R.D.) is a Tripartite rail which delivers insane precision, advanced directional stability, surreal grip and ultimate comfort, all unknown yet in the world of Twin-Tips. The HRD Rail provides new performances and a truly unknown riding sensation like riding above the water. The 16mm thick rail also strongly increases the resistance of the structure and locks the twist of the board
Towards the tip of the board, the rail returns to his original thin shape to ensure grip during take-off and pop.
- 16 MM THICK INVERTED RAIL
In the feet area, the rail profile is very thick and inverted which creates two supports zones that avoid bouncing effect. Its also generate an impressive vertical lift that offers early planning and sensational drive. Landing any jump or trick
has never been so simple! Its sharpened top edge also reduces water spray towards the eyes and legs.
- THIN & SHARP RAIL
On the central part, the rail is thin and sharp, allowing edging, jumping at any time, also delivering a huge grip and an outstanding pop!
Using the HRD features landing any jump or trick as never been so simple! The HRD rail provides new performance and a truly unknown riding sensation like riding above the water.
The 16 mm thick rail also strongly increases the resistance of the structure and locks the twist of the board.
Concave Step Design
The combination of a bottom concave and a channel which tightens the central part, allows to go planning in an instant, with a strong upwind potential. The concave absorbs the chop and improves its grip on the water.
The channel enhances the flow of the water and relieves the pressure on the back foot, providing incomparable comfort.
3D Deck Structure
Board flex is tuned through both materials and shape. The shape of the deck is especially engineered to make the board ultra responsive between your legs for maximum drive and precision with the flex increasing progressively towards the tips for maximum pop and comfort.
Reduces the core volume and weight and adds extra flexibility towards the tip of the board. Combined with the other deck features, this makes the board stiff in the middle sections but with a nice flex towards the tips, making the drive very precise with a smooth riding feeling and extra pop for the jumps
The wood forms the heart of your board and gives it most of its mechanical properties: strength, flex, and resilience (ability to return to its original shape). Each year, in order to master these properties, we seek to optimize its distribution, particularly in terms of thickness.
The patented UNIBOX system and RESPONSE fins have a radical effect: the asymmetrical profile improves the general ride and early planing. However, it is the flex of the RESPONSE fins that gives amazing rail-grip as well as pop and forgiveness on heavy freestyle landings.
