The Aztron Urono is a board for riders who are looking for performance at a reasonable budget.

An ideal model for long hours of tour.

With the double chamber technology, Aztron is redefining the safety and performance standards of the iSUP industry. The second inner tube stiffens the entire board and acts as a beam that covers nearly half of the total surface area of the board, improving the stiffness of the board by 30%. This second chamber is inserted between the deck elastics and the end of the pad, which allows maximum rigidity throughout the area where you stand. The double chamber construction ensures the best stability even under the most difficult conditions.

In addition to the performance aspect of double chamber technology, it also provides a safety benefit. The additional inner chamber provides at least 100 to 150 litres of buoyancy and therefore allows air to return to shore in the event of an air leak. Paddling safely is a priority, which is why Aztron provides riders of all levels with the peace of mind to manage any aquatic environment.

Fused double layer technology is recognized as the most reliable construction process. The board has a second layer of upper PVC fused to the lower layer. This technique avoids the use of glue and therefore eliminates any imperfection or air bubbles between the two layers of PVC. This process gives the board incredible stiffness and torsion.
The combination of these two technologies allows an ultimate blend of stiffness and lightness.
