Amazing smooth power, stability and ease of use, the 2018 Airush Lithium Progression is simply the perfect kite for all-round use in a lightweight, high value package
Airush Lithium Progression 2018
The kite we have chosen to use in our school over the last 6 years, amazingly easy to use with fantastic stability, smooth power delivery, huge depower and wind range, amazing durability and the best water relaunch on the market.
The Lithium Progression construction features an amazing number of features while still living up to its name of simplicity, durability, and performance. The Lithium Progression kite features the industry standard, Teijin T9600 Single Rip Stop Canopy, which is extremely resistant to UV, stretching and the abuse that kiters deliver on a daily basis.
The V2.1 Bridle System on the Progression offers a functional and stable setup when working together with the Delta Hybrid Design. This combination gives the most amount of wind range while riding and makes relaunching extremely fast.
Unique to the Lithium Progression is the multi-strut in inflation system with 9mm Inflate Valves. Although simple, this in inflation system has proved reliable over years of use throughout the industry. This multi-strut in inflation system allows for easy maintenance and repairs, especially in scenarios where the kites are used extensively.
V2.1 Bridle System
The V2.1 bridle system on the Lithium Progression and Progression SPS provides support to the slightly larger leading edge to increase stability, support and wind range of the delta hybrid design. It also maintains steering tension at all times making it ideal for entry and intermediate users who require full control while riding completely depowered.
Emergency safety handles are provided on each wingtip to maximise the control and security when performing a self rescue.
Airush bumpers reduce wear and increase durability on rough surfaces. These bumpers are key for increasing the lifespan of Airush kites.
Kevlar Reinforcements in critical areas protect the kite from wear while still minimising weight.
Rear Line Adjustment
The Rear Line Adjustment featured on all Airush kites allows for quick changes in the kites bar pressure and response. Adjustment towards “High” will increase bar pressure and decrease turning speed. Moving back towards the rear of the wingtip will decrease bar pressure and increase turning speed.
Smaller kites have 3 Bar Pressure settings, Larger kites only have Medium and Low Bar Pressure options available.
Tejin Double Ripstop Cloth
The Lithium Progression kite features the industry standard, Teijin T9600 Single Rip Stop Canopy, which is extremely resistant to UV, stretching and the abuse that kiters deliver on a daily basis.
The simple multi-strut inflation system allows for easy maintenance and repairs, especially in scenarios where the kite is used extensively.
