Product Information

Description

From North

Playful yet powerful, the Astra is a bold all-terrain addition to our freeride quiver, delivering out-of-this-world performance to lighter riders. Often lighter-weight riders find it harder to control large, stiff boards designed for heavyweights. With this in mind, we set out to create a board with more responsive flex for riders with a smaller build - one that would deliver increased control in a range of conditions, greater comfort and softer landings, without sacrificing performance. Astra's smaller board length, narrower stance and basalt technology construction provides riders of all levels just the right amount of flex for controlled edging, boosts and loops. Its consistent, dependable rail grip gives you extra confidence to push boundaries as you load up for massive jumps. With its super-efficient bottom shape and rocker, the board feels fast through the water and flies upwind. The medium flex is dense enough to deliver clean and powerful pop, yet soft enough to forgive your knees and legs on harder landings. Sending it was never this easy.

Highlighted Features
  • Optimised for lighter weight riders
    • The laminate layup is crafted for lighter weight riders, with a responsive flex pattern for explosive pop, softer landings, and comfort in even the most aggressive chop.
  • Enhanced edge control
    • Phenomenal rail hold for easy upwind tracking and confident boosting, a result of the balanced harmony engineered between outline, rocker and flex.
  • Narrower stance
    • More precise foot positioning enables smaller riders to remain in control across every manoeuvre and landing. The Astra has a 20mm narrower stance in all sizes compared to the Atmos.
  • Hybrid basalt construction
    • We’ve orientated the e-glass and unidirectional basalt tapes in the laminate layup to optimise the loading of the individual fibres, resulting in a unique construction method with superior performance.
  • Medium-high outline curve
    • Smooth carving through turns and optimised grip. The pulled-in tip shape adds durability.
  • Progressive rocker
    • Early planing and great low-end performance, with greater control when overpowered.
  • Single concave centre to quad channel tips
    • Absorbs impact and ensures stable and predictable landings.
  • Lightweight, impact resistant eco core
    • At the heart of this board is a light and strong Paulownia wood core. Paulownia is a highly renewable hardwood species, with one of the highest strength to weight ratios.
  • Stainless M6 standardised hardware
    • Standardised SS316 M6x16mm hardware across all twin tip boards and accessories enables the use of the same PH3 screwdriver for assembly and makes replacement of parts super easy.
  • Ergonomic handle
    • Lightweight and ergonomic TPE material provides ultimate grip when wet.
