MARTIAN 12'6" is the weapon of choice for all-around SUP racing. Features cutting edge CARBON MATRIX construction to create a stunning blend of performance and function. In elite racing, it's all about having an ultra-light board that is also ultra-stiff. The carbon matrix construction serves both masters well. Designed with an elite racing SUP in mind, the MARTIAN highlights a displacement nose, a water-shedding front deck and the unparalleled stiffness/lightness combination afforded by the carbon matrix construction. The standing area drops down for a low center of gravity on the racing shape. In 2019-2020, the MARTIAN is updated with a 27" (68.5cm) width for race pros.

TECH & FEATURES
HD-EPS CORE WITH STRINGERS The Aztron composite boards is built around a high-density 20kg/m3 Expanded Polystyrene core (EPS) that is shaped using a computer numerical controlled (CNC) machine. the EPS foam is lightweight, provides thickness and buoyancy. The foam core of the composite boards is sandwiched between fiberglass or carbon skins that creates the stiffness and structure of the composite board. Additional marine grade wood stringers are bonded in the center of the board to give increased rigidity and durability.
CARBON SANDWICH CONSTRUCTION The Aztron's carbon composite board uses the latest technology and manufacturing process to build our premium Carbon Sandwich Construction SUP. The advanced structure features high-end vacuum laminated 3K carbon with foam inserts in the deck. The carbon fiber adds huge strength to the board without compromising the desirable flex-reflex characteristics, therefore generate huge amount of speed and drive. We use premium carbon fiber material in the overall reinforcing process, gives unmatched strength and weight saving.
RECESSED DECK APOLLO and MARTIAN composite boards feature a state-of-the-art rocker line and a recessed standing area that provide added stability and lower center of gravity for superior padding position, lightning fast acceleration and ultimate gliding speed.
DEEP GROOVED FOOTPAD AND KICK PAD The MARTIAN features a 3/4 deck of 5mm soft brushed diamond grooved EVA traction pad gives ultimate grip and maximum comfort. It also comes with an additional tail kick pad with arch of 1.4inch/3.5cm, optimize the board positioning for controlling and aggressive buoy turns with fast recovery.
