Aerial’s Eclipse Wakeboard Tower Bimini in Sunbrella is absolutely one of the most popular and best-selling upgrades purchased for Aerial Wakeboard Towers and is designed to fit the following Aerial Wake Towers: Ascent 1.0, Ascent 2.0, Airborne 1.0, Airborne 2.0, Assault and F250 Pontoon towers.
You get a lot more than just relief from the intense summer’s sun. Why? Although many customers find their boat’s stock folding bimini works with their Aerial wake tower installed, many opt to upgrade to the Eclipse Bimini. Not only does it look so much better than the standard folding boat biminis, it also brings a ton of functionality. The elevated installation position at the top of the tower also provides much more on-deck head room than a standard bimini. Now, without the cumbersome stock bimini frame in your way, you lose that the feeling of being caged-in and you will gain a lot more freedom of movement. The difference is so dramatic, you’ll kick yourself for not switching sooner. Plus, the Eclipse Bimini’s sporty profile not only looks fantastic, it has the added benefit of being very aerodynamic and is speed tested up to 50mph! When mounted, the canvas is very taught giving great stability and minimal movement.
Like all of Aerial Wakeboarding Products, form always follows function. All products have been carefully designed and tested by Team Aerial’s group of talented mechanical engineers to perform flawlessly, reliably and beyond customer expectations. The Eclipse Bimini is a great example of this commitment to making wake-based watersports better. Made of premium, high tensile stainless steel tubing, the frame is ultra-rugged and sturdy. For the canvas, the ultimate quality of Sunbrella Marine Fabric was chosen. It’s the industry’s go-to material you’ll find on almost every part of every boat at the marina. Sunbrella is extremely strong, color and fade resistant and easy to maintain. Also, Sunbrella Marine Fabric is the perfect choice for shade because it is has been granted the Skin Cancer Foundation’s Seal of Recommendation for safe and effective sun protection. Several popular fabric colors are offered to help you coordinate the right style for your ride. The size of the bimini casts a large sized shadow perfect for everyone on board to stay cool.
Installation is a very straightforward bolt-on unit and average install time is 15-20 minutes. The Eclipse Bimini is backed by a full 5 year manufacturer warranty. Note that although the bimini is speed tested up to 50mph, the easy to remove canvas must be removed from the frame when trailering or towing your boat on the roadways.
Protect your skin, extend your time out on the lake, increase headroom and open up useable deck space all with this super stylish and very affordable wakeboard tower upgrade! Be sure to reserve your Eclipse Bimini early especially approaching the peak summer season- demand is high and they always sell out fast.

For the longest life of the bimini fabric, please remove the canvas from the bimini frame if you are storing your boat outside. The bimini canvas is meant to provide shade while boating. Constant exposure to the sun, heavy rains and/or high winds will only accelerate the degradation of the fabric. Do not tow your boat with the bimini fabric mounted while driving- especially not at freeway speeds.
I am please with the construction of the bimini. The cloth material is excellent. The installation was fairly easy. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars was a few of the welds were a bit dirty.
