THE AIRUSH ULTRAv4 KITE

When it comes to finding the ultimate combination in lightweight performance design for foil, freeride, and surf, look no further than the Ultra.

The unique blend of stability, low end power, and responsive drive allows the kite to fly further forward in the window.

Pairing lightweight Single Strut Geometry with a higher tension canopy makes this the most responsive Ultra yet.

Originally conceived as the ultimate kite for the minimalist, the Ultra leads the revolution of foil and light wind freeride. The single strut allows us to shed as much weight as possible, without losing that essential rigidity needed for stability, relaunch and ease of use.

The Ultra maintains its flying shape by maximising the benefits of the Airush Load Frame, resulting in improved canopy tension & responsiveness. The balanced geometry combines canopy curve, leading edge sweep and a specific trailing edge concave.

By combining this with WebTech reinforcing, the weight of the Ultra is minimised. This enables a greater level of performance in all wind conditions and allows us to push the boundaries of light wind performance.

By removing all the struts, except the one, with a medium aspect ratio and rounded wingtips, combined with the v3 Pulley Bridal system and the open C design creates a new kind of kite. A kite for the minimalist, on the revolution of foil and light wind freeride. The single strut allows us to shed as much weight as possible without losing that essential rigidity needed.

The Airush Load Frame, featuring WebTech, has been the key to setting the ultimate benchmark in durability without compromising on weight.

Central to the concept of the Load Frame are the lightweight Ultra High Modulus yarns, of which each yarn can carry 40 kilograms. Think of them as a lightweight web with engineered energy absorption, similar to a spider web.

These are integrated into the canopy through reinforced taping that allows them to elongate when under extreme load, absorbing most of the shock that traditionally would have run through the canopy. At the same time, they carry the primary load of the canopy, preventing stretch and increasing long-term performance.

By expanding our exclusive Load Frame with WebTech throughout the areas normally occupied by Dacron, we are able to minimize the heavier fabric, and utilize the ballistic fibres instead – increasing strength and minimizing weight.

So if you are looking for the ultimate combination in lightweight performance design for foil, freeride, and surf, the Ultra is the kite for you.

 

KITE TECHNOLOGY

1. TECHNOFORCE D2 CANOPY

This premium fabric is designed with a high-density structure that uses high-tenacity, double-coated polyester yarn in a double ripstop configuration. The double coating protects the yarn as much as possible from UV and abrasion damage, ensuring that the canopy remains crisp and responsive for as long as possible.

2. AIRUSH BUMPERS

Airush Bumpers are found throughout the leading edge of the kites to reduce wear and increase durability on rough surfaces. These bumpers are key for increasing the lifespan of Airush kites.

3. SQAURE WINGTIP

4. BAR PRESSURE ADJUSTMENT

5. V3.2 PULLEY BRIDLE

The key benefit of the V3.2 Bridle System is that the kite maintains steering even when completely de-powered, increasing the usable wind range and overall performance significantly while adding immense safety benefits. The positioning of the bridle attachment points on the LE of the kite, combined with the V pulleys, results in lighter steering, but direct enough to feel the kite’s position whilst riding.

6. OPEN C FRAME

7. SPS & FBI

The oversized SPS valve (Single Point Inflation System) optimizes inflation and deflation. The Fast Bladder Inflation (FBI) features increased wall thickness and oversized diameter tubing, thus eliminating tube kink, reducing stress on your pump, and enabling quick and easy inflation.

8. KEVLAR REINFORCEMENT

Kevlar, found in bulletproof vests, is found throughout the Airush kites. These Kevlar Reinforcements are only put in the most critical areas to protect from wearing while still minimizing weight which affects the kites performance.
