- Interchangeable bridle system.
- Agile turning, direct steering, & the perfect amount of drift.
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.
This exceptional material is used in conjunction with the Airush Load Frame, resulting in the ultimate combination of durability and performance.
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.
SQUARE WING TIP
BAR PRESSURE ADJUSTMENT
Adjustment options vary by size – the larger size kites have more adjustment options than the smaller sizes. Generally, the Session kite has 3 settings compared to most kites that have 2.
The Session has an interchangeable fixed- or pulley bridle.
OPEN C FRAME
LOAD FRAME TECHNOLOGY
The Airush Load Frame, featuring WebTech, has been the key to setting the ultimate benchmark in durability without compromising on weight.
By expanding our exclusive Load Frame with WebTech throughout the areas normally occupied by Dacron, we have been able to minimize or completely remove the heavier fabric and instead utilize the ballistic high-modulus polyethylene web fibers, thus increasing strength and minimizing weight.
INTEGRATED HIGH MODULUS POLYETHYLENE YARNS
Central to the concept of the Load Frame are the lightweight Ultra High Modulus yarns, of which every single yarn can carry 40kg. Think of them as a lightweight web with engineered energy absorption under load, similar to a spider's web.
These yarns are integrated into the canopy through reinforced taping that allows them to elongate under extreme load, absorbing most of the shock that would have typically run through the canopy. At the same time, they carry the primary load of the canopy, preventing stretch, and increasing long-term performance.
WebTech minimizes or replaces the traditional Dacron reinforcement by channeling the broader loads into the Load Frame through a web 'subframe' of Ultra High Molecular Polyethylene (Ultra High Modulus).
This is featured in key areas, such as the primary attachment points on the leading edge or the rear attachment points, while also being used to support structural components such as the center strut.
SELECTING YOUR KITE
As much as designers chase versatility within every model, each rider has a specific set of preferences around the way they want to ride in their local conditions. This quick model comparison chart helps you to navigate the fundamental features and differences for the Airush lineup.
LITHIUM vs SESSION
The Lithium features a longer center chord for more parked power and bar drive. It features more sweep in the wingtip for improved relaunch. The Square wingtips on the Session create a kite that pivots more, while the reduced sweep creates a more direct input. The Lithium has v3 pulley bridles and the Session includes both the fixed bridles and the V3 pulley bridle system.
SESSION vs UNION
The Session has a lower aspect ratio compared to the Union, creating a kite that pivots more in the turn, and sits slightly further back when it needs to. The Union is a higher aspect platform for more jumping orientation, while maintaining the square wingtips for powerful looping. The Union features a fixed bridle for maximum stability.
