LOUDON, Tenn. – On November 2, 2013, Axis Wake revealed the all-new T22 at the National Dealer Meeting in Austin, Texas. This versatile, 22-foot wake machine meets the demand of those who prefer a traditional bow style, while offering new advancements in hull design, styling and modern-day features including the auto-set Wedge and SURF GATE®..
Designed for people who demand performance, without the big price tag, the T22 offers all of the affordable essentials that Axis Wake is known for. Combined with a new hull, the T22 delivers the best wakeboarding and wakesurfing experience on the water today.
With a wide beam at 102 inches, this boat creates comfort and space with seating for up to 15 people. The T22’s cab-forward design offers the largest lounge area in its class, and its balanced weight distribution delivers a quicker hole-shot with less bow rise and a level ride, which increases the driver’s visibility, passenger safety and overall comfort.
The helm features a best-in-class, full-swivel driver’s seat, precision throttle and effortless steering system. The T22 also allows you to add the optional, rear-facing flip-up seat to keep your passenger’s attention on the rider, and its walk-through design gives you easy and open access to the playpen-style bow. The upgraded interior across the entire Axis lineup is also a pleasant improvement for 2014.
CEO Jack Springer is excited for what the T22 brings to the lineup and brand as a whole. “Since 2009, Axis Wake Research has rocketed to number six in market share on the strength of two models, the A22 and A20,” Springer said. “In August, we added a third picklefork model with the A24. And now, the T22 is an extraordinary boat that captures the essence of Axis, yet brings new improvements and features to the fastest growing brand in the history of our segment. At our recent dealer meeting, everyone who experienced the T22 came off the water raving about the ride, the customer’s choice of interior packages and the wake and wakesurfing wave with SURF GATE®. This boat is a homerun, no question!”
If you prefer a traditional bow shape with contemporary features, comfort and high-end performance, the Axis Wake T22 is right up your alley – just another reason why Axis Wake Research remains Centered On You.
Kaesen Syderhoud’s and UNIT Parktech’s newest team play results in an artwork of a Wakeboard Rail. Kaesen’s creativity and UNIT’s Rail-Builder-Know-How leads in an absolutely mind blowing geometry. Sit down and list all possible lines, you will need a pencil sharpender and an additional paper. Look what Kaesen himself says:
Hannes: Hey Kaesen, you are the latest expansion of the UNIT Parktech team, how does it feel?
Kaesen: It feels absolutely amazing! Its an honor to be on a team with some of the biggest names in wakeboarding. Being apart of the Unit park-tech team is something I am really proud of. Not only has Unit already changed the wake park game with their features but I get to help with further constructions and future designs with good friends. Im pumped!
Hannes: Everybody knows that you spend more than 100 days a year on a Snowboard. How does it effect your Wakeboarding?
Kaesen: Ever since I started wakeboarding in the summers I have always been snowboarding in the winters. They always seemed very similar to me. I strongly believe that snowboarding makes me a better wakeboarder. Without my passion for snowboarding my wakeboarding wouldnt be where it is today. It helps me to know how to do all my tricks without a rope so my body can memorize all the correct motions. It’s cool to see and feel the transition of tricks from the snow to the water and the water to snow.
Hannes: Your Signature Rail looks awesome. Very creative. Do you have to be a creative rider to find all the lines?
Kaesen: The world is definitely your oyster on this feature! So many lines! Whats good about my signature rail is that it’s designed for both wakeboarding and wakeskating. You can hit it on any side going any direction which makes it perfect for system 2.0 or changing around at the full size park. I was heavily influenced by snowboarding and skating for my design and I really wanted all the fellow park rats out there to get inspired to be more creative with what’s in front of them and to not ever get bored on a feature.
Hannes: The Velocity Island Park in Woodland, California will open in 2014 with your feature as the first park worldwide to have it. Is there good possibility of seeing you out there hitting it and getting a chance to chat with you?
Kaesen: Yes! VIP is opening soon for the 2014 season and I couldn’t be more stoked to have my home park be the first to carry my signature rail. I will definitely be out there all the time riding, promoting, and even coaching so fill free to chat any time you see me and expect big things from VIP.
