AK Element Footstraps

In an effort to enhance the feel and performance of any twintip kiteboard, we’ve designed a component in such a way to maximize support, impact resistance, and comfort.

Having spent some time researching the physiological effects of impact through one’s feet and looking closely at running shoe technology, we designed the Element Footstraps.

Learn more about the technology and features below:

DUAL MOLDED DIRECT IMPACT FOOTBED

The Elements two-part dual-density construction is ergonomically designed to support, stabilize, and cushion your foot during high impact landings. Featuring an ultra-comfortable lower density upper layer with extra cushioning on the lateral (outer) side of your foot, with a denser more supportive impact resistant layer on the medial (inner) side of your foot. This unique design increases the support to the medial side of your foot, which in turn guides your knees outwards during high impact landings.

This technology, common in running and athletic shoes, offers the best support and stability while minimizing the chances of fatigue and injury.

RUBBER TONGUES

These unique adjustable tongues create a soft flexible framework to support the footstrap and let you personalize the position of the strap on the base plate by moving the molded tongue insert forwards or backward.

The dual primary slots create variable sizing options for riders with very big feet or those riding in booties.

DIRECTIONAL GROOVING

Directional grooving guides your heel towards the center of the pad, helps your toes grip more effectively, and stop your feet from slipping out of position when jumping or in heavy chop.

The variable angle adjustment strap works in conjunction with the directional grooving to keep your foot firmly in place. This, combined with the adjustable rubber molded tongue, allows you to fine-tune the Element to fit your specific foot shape and creates the ultimate connection to your board. Put simply, the Element makes your board feel better than ever before.
