2019 Airush AP V5
- Minimalist bar focusing on pure function and durability.
- Narrow diameter grip.
- Heavy Duty Flying Lines.
The key philosophy of the AP BAR was to create the most minimal design possible that focuses purely on function and bomb-proof durability. As freestyle and wakestyle riders, these philosophies are crucial for equipment that is constantly being used and abused while riding hooked or unhooked.
The AP Bar features a 21mm diameter bar that enables the rider to maintain a solid grip through the most power moves and landings. As this diameter bar is fully customizable, the bar can be cut and adjusted to meet a smaller width if needed.
Although the bar comes stock with a medium sized chickenloop for everyday riding, the AP Bar included an easy to install XL chickenloop strictly for unhooking. A shorter bar throw with a clean freestyle trim strap system gives the AP bar enough range while still remaining function. While doing big kiteloops or pop and slack tricks, it is essential for lines to be as strong as possible. With the AP Bar, a 400kg tested line with extensions has been installed to make this bar extremely durable and versatile.
22m Total = 1m Leader Lines + 19m Lower Lines + 2m Upper lines.
41cm – 51cm Adjustable.

Brain Quick Release
The Quick Release is crucial to the safety of a rider. Airush considers this a priority of functionality, safety and intuitive use for quick and natural response. This industry standard push away system is lightweight, strong, easy to release, and quick to assemble after activating, now with added rubber grip.
In addition to safety, the Airush Brain includes features to minimise interference and hassles of lines while riding. The spinning collar allows for smooth and easy untangling your lines after landing tricks. While an integrated safety line through the Brain provides a less intrusive design when riding at full safety mode or suicide-with-safety mode.
The Airush Soft Touch is a durable rubber molding encasing the bar ends. With a softer bar end, the Soft Touch prevents surfboard dings while adding an element of safety and comfort.
Low Y System
The Low Y System allows for single front line flag out system. This provides a safe way of shutting off the power of your kite when the safety is engaged. In addition to improving safety, the Low Y increases the angle of the front lines, which avoids unnecessary pinching or folding of the kite. This results in the wingtips become looser and move more independently, greatly increasing the manoeuvrability, turning speed and response of the kite.
New Diameter bar
Although we still have the subtle finger bumps that have been inspired by Ski Poles and Motocross bike grips, they have been reduced in size and the grip texture has been updated which ultimately reduces the diameter of the bar slightly. You will instantly notice the change when you grab onto a Core bar.
Airush Modus bar floats
The Modus 2.0 Bar End creates an extremely streamlined bar, with the recessed screw you can easily customize the bar setup with 10cm of width adjustment, to meet the needs of turning speed and response.
An updated bombproof stainless steel insert is covered in nylon to allow quick and easy adjustment even when not adjusted for long periods. A soft EVA molded outer shell adds protection for the bar, rider, and equipment.
