STRIKING NEW DASH DESIGN
A striking new dash design with glowing white 3-in-1 gauges gives the cockpit a classic sporty look. A new panel of soft-key switches puts controls at the drivers fingertips, and new helm and transom remotes for the audio system let the driver or passengers adjust the music.
MONSOON 409 OR MONSOON 450 ENGINE OPTIONS
It takes a properly ballasted watersports boat to churn up a great wake, and it takes a high-torque engine to move the boat smoothly at watersports speeds. Axis moves up to new 6.0-liter Monsoon engines putting out up to 550 foot-pounds of torque on select models to move the boat smoothly at watersports speeds.
AXIS AW15 TOWER
The AW15 Tower is easy for one person to fold with optional quick release latch. Additional options include quad board racks and tower light bar.
Designed specifically for boarding applications, this hull design allows the boat to sit deeper in the water at slower speeds, helping create more water displacement for a bigger wake at all boarding speeds.
Wait until you see how easy it is to turn the wake into an endless, customizable wave for surfing. Push a button to activate Surf Gate. Thats it. The Surf Gates high-speed hydraulic actuators let you quickly shift the wave from side to side.
From stowed to deployed, the Auto-Set Wedge creates a bigger wake by pulling the back of the boat down, producing the equivalent of 1,000 lbs of ballast.
