Airush Ultra V2 2019
With only a single strut, the Ultra is one of the lightest kites on the market, increasing each kite’s wind range and making it perfect for lighter wind conditions – a great companion for foiling, wave riding and and general cruising.
The Airush Ultra V2 has redefined our expectations of what a kite can do. The light weight and stability have opened up places we could never have kited, in marginal conditions we would not have considered possible to kite.
With unbeatable performance, weight saving features, and an exclusive Airush Load Frame for maximum durability, the Ultra kite has been the go-to kite for foil riders, wave riders and snow kiters alike.
When considering the Ultra evolution, a focus on segmentation reduction through the canopy and leading edge Lightweight Single Strut geometry increases the skin tension per panel. Fewer sections result in more tension between each segment point. This increases the responsiveness of the Ultra V2, while maintaining stability.
The ultra V2 is the lightest kite in the Airush range.
Lightweight Single Strut Geometry
The Ultra V2 is designed to maintain its shape and responsiveness by maximising the benefits of the unique Airush Load Frame. The balanced geometry combines canopy curve, leading edge sweep and a specific trailing edge concave.
By reducing the number of struts and combining this with WebTech smart reinforcing the weight of the Ultra V2 is reduced. This enables a greater level of performance in all wind conditions and allows us to push the boundaries of light wind performance.
Airush Load Frame V4
By expanding our exclusive Load Frame with WebTech throughout the areas normally occupied by Dacron, we are able to minimise or completely remove the heavier fabric to reduce weight.
Integrated High Modulus Fibres
Central to the concept of the Load Frame are the lightweight Ultra High Modulus yarns, of which each single yarn can carry 40kg. Think of them as a lightweight web with engineered energy absorption under load, similar to a spider web. These yarns absorb most of the shock that traditionally would have run through the canopy. At the same time, they carry the primary load of the canopy. As a result, they prevent stretch and increase long-term performance.
WebTech minimizes or replaces the traditional Dacron reinforcing by channeling the broader loads into the Load Frame through a web sub frame 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. Additionally, it is used to support structural components such as the centre strut.
This premium fabric is designed with a high-density structure using 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. This ensures that the canopy remains as crisp and responsive for as long as possible.
Technoforce D2 material is used in conjunction with the Airush Load Frame. The result is the ultimate combination of durability and performance.
V3.2 Bridle System
The key benefit of the V3.2 bridle is that the kite maintains steering even when completely de-powered. This increases 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 result in lighter steering. Yet it still has a direct enough to feel where your kite is while riding.
Airush Bumpers reduce wear and increase durability on rough surfaces. These bumpers are key for increasing the lifespan of Airush kites.
XL Inflate / Deflate Valve
The XL Inflate/Deflate Valve features an insanely easy and fast way to inflate and deflate your kite. The large opening creates maximum flow of air and reduces fatigue and stress on your pump.
SPS & FBI
The oversized SPS valve (Single Point Inflation System) and FBI tubing enables quick and easy inflation and deflation.
Kevlar Reinforcements in critical areas protect the kite from wear while still minimising weight.
