Our Testers Say:
“Air suspension through the chop with solid pop, solid upwind ability, bindings feel well-built but can be slippery. Handles chop like a champ and delivers a solid all around performance.” // Tiberiu Anghel
“This board was so much fun; feels a little bit like a surfboard in carves, great load, pop and boost, stays on edge very well, but construction is on the heavier side.” // Chris Myles
“Solid board with comfortable footstraps that are easily adjusted to fit smaller bare feet. Great for riding aggressively with comfort.” // Rhonda Reyna
The F-One Trax is back in the test for another year with its unique helical rail design that delivers a super fun twin tip that is fun for just about everything from jumping, carving or railing upwind. The Trax features three stance width options with a fair amount of play for adjusting stance width and came with 50mm fins and features F-One’s nifty Lite Tech construction that offers translucent windows through the board. The Trax has a fairly stiff flex pattern that testers liked for its solid load and pop, as well as the fairly flat rocker that zooms upwind. Testers loved the Trax’s user-friendly chop handling and commented on its fun, carve-friendly template for rail to rail carves. For those riders sensitive to board weight, the Carbon version is also available and offers the same performance in a significantly lighter package.
The Trax came with F-One’s Platinum3 bindings which features a smooth rubbery footbed that many testers found to be fairly dense and middle of the road grippy. The strap is a single Velcro adjustment that is easy to adjust and testers commented on the straps comfort and ability to adjust to a wide spectrum of foot sizes.
