The exclusive Helical Rail Design (HRD) plays a significant role in this board’s exceptional performances. It is a unique 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, bringing superior grip and bite to give excellent pop.
On the water, this board offers an instant feeling of speed and performance. The HRD rail eliminates spray and feels very comfortable regardless of the water conditions.
The TRAX HRD CARBON benefits from a biaxial carbon full layer which drops the weight of the board. It also gives it extra strength, a stiffer ride, and a more powerful flex response. Its lightness makes it very responsive and is an absolute dream once in the air.
The board’s flex has been tuned with the properties of carbon fiber to provide the best pop off the water, and the tips are exceedingly responsive, thus helping you when you load up the edge for take-off. When it comes to landings, the wide outline and channeled base combine to smooth things out and allow you to always retain control.
The concave step design on the bottom, an association of a classic single concave with a full-length channel, gives the board its locked-in yet smooth ride, and allows you to go planing in an instant with strong upwind potential.
Combining edge control, early planing, upwind ability and chop-friendly handling, the TRAX CARBON is an excellent choice for beginners, experts, and everyone in between. The stiff ride and explosive pop make this board well suited to the more freestyle-oriented riders looking for bigger airs and longer sessions.
From flat water to harsh chop, this precise board can handle it, and you’ll get a ride like no other with plenty of performance at your disposal and in full confidence.
The TRAX HRD CARBON is available in four sizes: 135×39 cm, 136×40.5 cm, 137×42 cm, and 140×45 cm. All come equipped with four UNIBOX 50mm fins, which offer better speed and improved glide thanks to their thinner profile.
