AXIS Progressive Rear Wings
The AXIS Progressive Rear Wings are our very latest thinking in rear wing design, suitable for more advanced riders and perfectly paired with our HPS, ART or smaller BSC and PNG wings. Mostly flat but with a very subtle downturn, these wings combine excellent speed with sensational turning.
Who are the AXIS Progressive rear wings for?
The AXIS Progressive rear wings are all round wings for intermediate and advanced riders paired with higher performance front wings such as HPS, ART, PNG and BSC front wings.
You notice the difference in your first carve or gybe.
Why did we design the AXIS Progressive rear wings?
We got super hooked on the locked in, fast, stable feel of the AXIS Speed 380/60 and 420/60 rear wings, and still are for flat water blasting and racing for winging and big, fast waves for foil surfing. But we had a feeling we still had more to give our riders in the turning department. After several iterations and tweaks, the new Progressive 350/63, 375/64, 400/65, 425/66, 450/67 and 475/68 rears have delivered it in spades.
Medium aspect, with a thin foil section and subtle turned down tips, this new design rolls into the turn beautifully, feels fluid and loose, and also grips through the carve and transitions back out the other side with predictable control and positive acceleration. Even intermediate foilers will notice the difference straight away. It’s super well behaved in rough winging conditions (just set and forget) and with the thin foil section it’s still rewardingly quick. The Progressive rear wings will feel like a natural extension of your feet.
Riders are finding the Progressive rears pair beautifully with our AXIS ART and AXIS HPS high aspect front wings, and they’ll work very well with any foil for riders looking to improve their turns and carves. As always, size your Progressive rear wing to your experience and front wing size. (larger sizes for less experienced riders and larger front wing pairings)
We obsess over rear wings, almost to the point that it’s a problem. We’ve tried to get professional help but the prototypes just keep getting churned out by our design team on a weekly basis, and we can’t help but test, analyze, pontificate, redesign – and on and on it goes.
You may be thinking – why do rear wings matter? Aren’t they just stabilizers to balance the front wing? Well that’s what many thought too – in the very early days. We know that your rear wing can change your life. Okay that’s not quite true, but it will significantly affect the ride characteristics of your whole foil set up.
Try the AXIS Progressive rear wings and you will immediately know what we are talking about.
We can’t wait to see you lay it over and let rip!
When you purchase the AXIS carbon rear wings we include an AXIS padded cover with zipper, in heather gray, and AXIS branding, for safer setup, transportation and storage.
