AXIS 'ART PRO' Front Wing
+New range of smaller sizes due before mid September, pre-order order+
The Axis ARTpro was developed over 2 years following the success of the ART. Designed for maximum performance, efficiency and glide, this range of foil pushes the limits of what is possible with a foil. Focused on speed, these fast gliding and efficient pumping foils are suited for high end winging, downwinding and prone foiling, where the riders wants to go further, faster.
Fr the Who wants to go faster than ever before, but with the confidence of total control?
Are you ready to push and test your limits, while confident that it won’t be the foils limits that govern your performance?
Do you want to use the same front wing for fast winging, SUP downwind and even prone?
Are you craving a foil that goes where you steer it, with no hesitation, no uncertainty, just clinical precision. If you answered yes to any of the above, we have the answer for you… ART PRO.
These are the actual foils that delivered a Moloka’i 2 Oah’u gold medal for Olivia Piana on the ART PRO 1051, a 3rd place for Edo Tanas, a 4th Place for Kai Lenny (both on ART PRO951) and a 9th place for Perth Standlick on the ART PRO 1051. All standard production models.
Very fast high-performance wings, that offer a new level of performance potential for riders to exploit.
Each member of the ART PRO foil range is a wing in its own right, not simply scaled versions of its closest sibling. All the ART PRO's share the following:
- An extended elliptical outline.
- A straight median line for better turning and control.
- Narrower chords for lower drag overall.
- Less overall turn down especially in the tips.
- Less complicated shapes in general.
- Lower drag foil section on the smaller versions
- All ART PRO's have aspect ratios between 11 and 12
ART PRO foils are ideally matched with our Black Advance fuselage and Skinny rear wing ranges.
After the great reception the ART1099 received, it seemed obvious that we should build a bigger one. We swung into action with the intent of rolling out an ART1199… that’s where the 2-year ARTPRO odyssey began.
Not content to just scale up an already tried and true formula we went to work (our longest development cycle to date), testing countless iterations, all building on the success of the one before, the result we believe is something really special, so special in fact that collectively we decided it would herald in an entirely new range for AXIS, the ARTPRO’s.
Leading the charge is the ARTPRO 1201, designed for fast downwinding and bigger guys, but don’t get the wrong impression, this is the wing Dylan Bez prone paddled up for a World Record Marathon 3hr and 6min continuous Surf pump session (left his board shorts at home so went out in work shorts, he had to stop because it got dark? Averaging 18.8km/h and covering a whopping 58km in distance all without getting wet again)
The design requirements of the ARTPRO 1201, were unprecedented glide, fast and nimble feel, unparalleled large span turning, great breach control, crucial for a wing of this span and finally early lift and low stall speed.
Based on our Black fuselage platform, ARTPRO 1201 will slot straight into your existing quiver, but really comes alive when paired with our Black Advance fuselages and our Skinny rear wings.
