AXIS Masts 19mm Doodad and Baseplates
About this Collection 19mm Aluminium Mast
Designed for our entire foil line, the AXIS masts are stiff, strong, and ready for any use and conditions. We designed our masts for 2021 to give our foilers a very direct feeling to their foil which is critical for foiling. We even sourced our own high quality aluminium and bought tons of it, to ensure we only have the highest quality raw materials for our foils.
Our 19mm Aluminium Mast section was developed after countless hours of computer analysis, and resulted in a 2.24 times stiffness improvement over most other brands 15mm masts, and is even stiffer than most carbon masts available today. This provides a very direct and predictable feel, especially through manoeuvres, making it the best choice for beginner to intermediate riders.
Many expert riders choose to stay with our 19mm Aluminium, preferring its superior stiffness and predictable feel, especially when used with larger front wings (1050 or larger). Their affordability also allows riders to carry a couple of mast lengths for different foiling disciplines, ocean conditions or locations, or upgrade to a longer mast once you’ve mastered the basics. With the modular nature of our system, it’s a quick and easy changeout.
We also offer a 16mm mast option for lighter riders, or prone and kite foilers using smaller wings. The 16mm mast is 1.67 times stiffer than most 15mm masts on the market.
Our Aluminium Masts work in conjunction with the AXIS base plate, for connection to the board, and our ‘Doodad’ for connection to the fuselage. Often overlooked, the Doodad is our secret weapon that provides industry leading rigidity between mast, fuselage and foil. Compared with other brands you’ll feel the difference immediately! Both the Black and Red fuselages can be fitted to all our aluminium masts.
