Boundless TV Special – Early Registration Discount for 2017

The 17th annual AXS series kicks off in Moab on April 22nd, 2017. This is one of the most spectacular venues in the series and certainly a racer favorite. Mountain bike through the canyons on jeep roads and some of Moab's epic single track trails. Kayaks through the canyon on the Colorado River, and rappel down a breath taking 300' cliff. We hope to see you in April.

8+ miles of paddling the Colorado River.

A breathtaking 300' rappel!

This gear list along with the gear drop information provided in the race updates will give you an idea of how to plan for the race. Certain gear is required for multiple legs of the race (ie: there is not a gear drop at each transition area). Complete details are disclosed at racer check-in. Once you see the maps and plot the race your gear logistics will all come together.

* Kayaks – Tandem Inflatable Kayaks are provided for 2 person teams and are mandatory. Solo racers must provide their own solo kayak of choice. Solo rentals are available from local outfitters or directly from us: Solo kayaks, paddles and pfd’s rentals are available directly from us (Limited supply, so reserve early). These will be waiting for you at the transition areas. Hard shell kayaks and other paddle gear can also be rented at  Canyon Voyages in Moab.

Duathlon racers do not need the Kayaking gear.


The mandatory gear is the minimum required and subject to penalties if you don’t have those items. You will certainly need additional gear to get you through the race. Here are additional highly recommended items. Search for best pricing by clicking on the item.

Come prepared for all weather conditions. You are ultimately responsible for your own safety.
