The 2013 AXIS Vanguard has a powerful outline and medium flex. The board is controlled with specific carbon reinforcements that run across the top and bottom of the rail, on a unique shape, that control the flex to give solid tracking and great pop. This is what we call Logical Flex. The 138 Vanguard is designed for slightly larger riders or riders that like a little more board for max freestyle pop. The base features a center spine with a quad concave. The concaves are concentrated towards the rails so that they form channels to provide solid tracking and smooth landings. The AXIS Vanguard is supplied with 4 x 50mm brightly coloured solid G10 fins (Premium G10) which are secured by 8 x high quality screws thru from the deck. We supply the board complete with the AXIS fin retainers to spread the load from the screws to the deck area. The Vanguard is also supplied with the AXIS U.T.S. pads/straps nicely packed in their own pouch, including all accessories needed. The AXIS screw driver is also included in the pouch. Everything you will need to get up and going is there.
