I need to sell my standard fuselage and go all short.

We just got two of the new short ones and they are awesome.  The head is entirely milled out.  There is a little milling on the tail.  The mast pedestal has been completely removed.  The new mast attachment point on the fuselage is female.  The doodad is highly milled and has a Gene Simmons tongue.  They took off a surprising amount of material over the old style.  These are nice and light in hand.  This is going to be awesome with the new carbon masts.

If I just order from the axis site am I going to get a new style fuselage or are they still selling the outdated ones?

It don't think that you would get this style.  I am not sure if the older style is discontinued or if they are keeping both.

With my last order, they sent 2019 standard fuse and 2020 short fuse. When 2019 stock is gone, 2020 ships. So youíre safe with a short fuse order.

I was hoping to order a 2020 ultra short. I want the option to switch to carbon later. Hmm

The 2020 fuselage takes the dodad to be used in the metal mast. If you're going carbon, it'll attach directly.

The new S1010 wing is 1010 mm wingspan ;D and projected area is 1430 cm^2

The amazing thing is that the actual area also is 1430^2 ...

https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/17xbTGEWSVeRhnYb_4vz_Gmby8UnrDys7Q1iB-6rC6F4/edit?usp=sharing

The S1000 is 1310/1388.
So the S1010 is not much bigger than the S1000 and a lot flatter aka completely flat

There is also a new 460 rear wing coming that also seems to be completely flat

This looks like the 101 wing with 460 tail.

What's the info on the 880 wing?? How's it compare to the 900 or the 920/820?  Haven't seen any pics or really any info about it. Is it high aspect?

Some interesting updates on the 1010 here https://www.seabreeze.com.au/forums/Stand-Up-Paddle/Foiling/Axis-101?page=1#14 .  More area than the 1000 but the lowest of the 3 in volume.

S1000 area 1310, volume 1904 cm^3
S1010 area 1430, volume 1732 cm^3
S1020 area 2013, volume 4161 cm^3

2020 Axis foils
« Reply #101 on: December 20, 2019, 03:16:57 PM »
Ready to get into Axis foils for winging-1000 and 1020 wings etc. Just wondering if I should wait for the new stuff  i.e. carbon masts to come out. I emailed live2kite but they never answered back.
Also, anyone know if all of the mast sizes will come out in carbon?  I willing to gamble the money on a 48 cm beginner mast to see if I can supfoil some luscious insiders at our beach break without breaking my face.

Iíve been using my Kai and Iwa with my floaty but heavy 8í hypernut. Iím going to start using my 7í4 carbon hypernut and my 6í6Ē Kalama when I feel more confident with the wing.

There is no reason to wait. 1000 and 1020 are the same for 2020.

They are already supplying the 2020 short fuselage with all orders. Thatís what you need, should you decide to go carbon someday. Iím not going carbon.

Mast is the same for 2020 in the aluminum.

You donít need a short mast for shore break. You ride high on foil in the shallows, then kick the board airborne on exit. Pretty easy to execute.

When we ordered the Carbon 76 masts Axis had written, "sizing will start with the 76cm at $788 and 96cm at $857 and then later in 2020 will come out with the 86cm and 106cm."

I bought a full kit from Live2Kite. For me as a beginner, it was recommended I get the Aluminum $100 mast as opposed to the $800 carbon. He said in order to get the stiffness the carbon mast would only be 15% lighter and I would never be able to tell the difference for a while. I also got the Axis 7'6" Carbon board. I have not had much time on it and am now injured and out for the next month or two so no report.
