The AXIS Vanguard is a solid freestyle performer. The muscle car in the Axis lineup. If you liked the 2017 Vanguard, you will fall in love with the 2018.
The 2018 Vanguard follows the new direction and design of the 2018 AXIS Limited. while maintaining the ARC rocker line.
The AXIS ARC rocker is a continuous arc which creates unparalleled smoothness on chop, and locks the rail on those high speed carvings.
For the 2018 AXIS Vanguard board, the rails are thinner than the FAT rail from 2017.
The thickness flow of the 2018 Vanguard is the same as the previous year, but with much more even thickness rail to rail. This gives a more predictable flex without point loading the laminate, which results in a stronger board. In addition, by scaling back the rail thickness, Axis created an incredible balance of smooth ride and crisp tracking. You will not believe how fun the 2018 AXIS Vanguard is.
As an additional bonus the 2018 AXIS Vanguard is lighter, at aprx. 2.65kg
For 2018 Axis changed the sizing of the Vanguard to even sizing. This way you get a chance to really dial in the right size to your weight, style and conditions.
Compatible with pads/straps or boots the AXIS 2018 Vanguard will meet your freestyle demands and then some.
