4mm Classic Traction

Ideal for the rider looking for the standard contact with their board, the AK 4mm Classic Surf traction offers a high grip connection.

8mm Ultra Cush Traction

The AK Ultra Cush Traction is perfect for the rider looking for a new level of comfort and support, along with a high level of impact protection for your board. The Ultra Cush features a flexible carbon insert between the top and bottom layer that acts as a shock absorber and prevents the pad from bottoming out.

A thin, flexible carbon plate is sandwiched in between the 2 layers of EVA to absorb the impact your board usually experiences directly. Taking the concept from board building we have designed a traction set that not only has incredible grip, but also protects your board from hard heel impacts.

Traction is an increasingly personal preference on how a rider wants to set up their board. The modular traction system allows you to customize your setup to your specific demands.
