You’ve heard of Aztron and want to find out more about their gear? Let’s have a look at the full range of Aztron inflatable and composite boards in the 2020 season. Good looks, admittedly good marketing, innovative technology and affordable rates, it looks like the SUP industry is going to have to count with Aztron for 2020 and beyond.
First of all, let’s have a look at Aztron’s board technology. Aztron offer mainly three technologies. Their best construction is the new “Ultra-light X-pattern Drop Stitch Tech” which provides a new woven base and x-stitch core that makes the board lighter and stronger other constructions. In 2020, Aztron has applied this new fabric to their inflatable SUP Race range – Meteor and Meteorlite.
AZTRON DOUBLE LAYER FUSION TECH
All Aztron Touring and specialty boards are finished off with a Double Layer Fusion technology. A known type of inflatable construction, DLF construction is super tough as it has an extra layer of PVC fused all over the drop-stitch core and also on the rails. Aztron also applies another PVC layer on the top part of the deck to give extra protection. The main difference between the Double Layer Fusion tech and the Single Layer tech is that it offers more stiffness and durability if you want to use the SUP for a long time. Also useful, if you’re going to put a dog or have some gears at the front of deck.
DOUBLE CHAMBER TECH
What makes Aztron already a strong player in the industry is their signature Double Chamber air board construction. With the 50:50 air distribution inner and outer air chambers, it provides two things: safety and board stiffness. So if either chamber is leaking, the other can guarantee your safety. Also, as you’re standing on the connection of the two chambers, you’ll feel more stability and stiffness compares to the regular air SUPS. Lastly, when you inflate the board, you don’t have to put as much pressure in the board overall as you would do for a single chamber SUP.
AZTRON NOVA COMPACT DOUBLE CHAMBER LITE BOARD
The all-round range of boards starting off with Nova 10’0” Compact iSUP. This is Aztron’s new foldable board. With the compact idea and a backpack nearly half of the other ones, it is easier to transport. Also, because of a single layer fabric, Nova does give you a nice light weight board. It’s very easy to paddle and comes with special fin setup. It’s 10’0 ” by 32” wide. So it offers a good amount of stability for most people and it’s going to get a lot of people into SUP for the first time. Most importantly, the MSRP is very competitive at 350 Euro.
AZTRON LUNAR, MERCURY and TITAN ALL-ROUND BOARD
The all-round range, Lunar, Mercury and Titan have similar sort of characteristics as the Nova, except it has an extra layer of PVC in the front deck. So if you want to put your dog or carry extra bags on the front, you can get more protection. Those boards are 32” wide and 6” thick, which can offer you a good stable platform. The board length of Lunar, Mercury and Titan are at 9’9”, 10’10” and 11’11”. They are available in different sizes for different sorts of people.
AZTRON VENUS FITNESS BOARD
Venus Fitness board is the new addition to the Aztron all-round family. Specification is 10’8” by 34” wide. It’s a little bit wider which is going to give you more stability. It’s going to be great for heavier paddler or yoga player. If you’re doing yoga or fitness moves, it will give you a nice open deck pad to work on. It is still 6” thick, which will take a large volume and weight. We really think the design and graphic of this board is one of the stand-out boards of the Aztron range. In terms of design, the graphic and color is more subtle than the other models, but still very nice design and finish. Remember the Venus is also featuring a Double Chamber construction with the Double Layer fusion PVC wrapping around the whole board, which makes it heavier, but it does make it stronger overall.
AZTRON TERRA, URONO, NEPTUNE TOURING BOARDS
In 2020, Aztron has refined the rocker line of their Touring range. So they made the board a little bit flatter overall. Therefore, the 10’6” Terra, 11’6” Urono and 12’6” Neptune all got much flatter rocker than last year, which means they will be faster to paddle. They’re all 32” wide and 6” thick. The range offers a large volume and suits a wide range of weights. The longer the board and the easier to paddle in a straight line.
AZTRON WINDSURF / MULTI-PURPOSE BOARD
