AXON Pulse Best Big Guy Board

Jul 19, 2011

Author: SBC Test Team

AXON Pulse    Best Big Guy Board!
STYLE:   Freeride
SIZE:     136 x 42 cm
FINS:     4.5 cm G10

The Pulse is the largest board of Axon’s freeride line, and is well suited to bigger, taller riders that need extra surface area under their feet but want to avoid more length. The wider and parallel outline of the Pulse let it plane up really fast and this board tracks upwind like its on rails. For lighter riders, you need to let off the rail pressure slightly before turning upwind and popping with this board, but larger riders will love its heavy and uncompromising edge control. With more flex throughout and in the tips than the NYC combined with the 3 mm of concave also make the Pulse chop-friendly. This Pulse is well suited to the heavier, intermediate to advanced freeriders that want more board under their feet for more power and control. It could also be used for light winds, and as a progression board for intermediate level riders looking to push into some freestyle.

Footbed and Strap System
The AGS Footpads and Q-loc footstraps provide a good combination of comfort and control. The molded EVA pad beds have three separate gel packs embedded for good cushioning and solid connection to the board. The raised toe support and gripped texture of the bed also give the advantage of a solid, locked-in feel. The straps have an internal lace system and are stiff at first but mold to the top of your foot after a few sessions. This a good footbed and strap system to match the high board quality delivered by Axon.
