If you're looking for the best connection between your board and foil below, Axis new High Modulus carbon mast is the way to go. The difference in how the whole setup feels between alloy and carbon is pretty spectacular and once you'll try them side by side you'll never look back.

Provides 35% more bend resistance than Axis' industry-leading 19mm aluminium mast. AXIS Power Carbon enters a new realm of control and connection between board and foil. During early ART foil testing, their research team quickly realised that higher aspect ratios and broader foil spans applied more bending and twisting forces to the mast. So while ART foils were a game-changer even on our existing masts, they knew there was still huge untapped potential to be realised.

So began a whole new development project, and we couldn’t be more excited at the result. With a new power profile and carefully considered material selection and placement, AXIS Power Carbon delivers both superior stiffness with next-level strength.

Opting for a one-piece design, we avoided the flow/drag and jointing issues associated with multi-part mast constructions.

Additionally and more importantly, testing proves that maximum loading is concentrated close to the baseplate and this is why the mast tapers thicker at this point to handle the loads. Any joins or two-piece construction at this high load area would destroy the integrity of the mast.

A revised fuselage connection design maximises the size of the attachment point to achieve a perfect fit to the fuselage reducing any chance of unwanted movement.
The result is a positive connected feel, direct drive, immediate feedback and ultimate control. High aspect foils perform as they should, feel and control enter an entirely new realm.

The new High Modulus Carbon fibre used in our mast layup is considerably stiffer and stronger than the regular carbon fibre used in conventional constructions. Innovative, considered and balanced placement of materials in our proprietary production process paired with rigorous testing has delivered a breathtaking performance leap.
Ride characteristics are so game-changing, that it’s been a struggle to get our team riders to return the prototypes after testing!
