The Airush Livewire V4 2016 utilises the same shape as the groundbreaking Livewire Team. This Livewire Series introduces a heavy-duty snowboard style sintered base and bombproof layup. Creating an ideal board for general abuse.
The Livewire features a unique dual rocker with a flatter tail rocker, for maximum pop and upwind performance. While the center rocker is increased for comfort and softer more stable landings.
The deep channel tips make this kiteboard ideal for riders who prefer to ride more powered or like good edge hold. The increased grip is fantastic for edging upwind, holding a solid edge even in choppier conditions and through carves.
The 2016 model receives a subtle makeover. It has more refined tips for increased tip flex along with increased hip cutout in the center section. Creating an improved ride with smooth and instant response. This response is focused on the perfect “load and pop” optimised by the triaxial Glass layup and Carbon Torsion Control.
Airush LiveWire Kiteboard Key Features
Multizone Biotech Core
The Airush Multizone Biotech construction is a vertical Paulownia wood core sandwich. This multilayer construction creates a consistent density from the natural material. Renowned for their response, the wood cores offer durability and smoothness. They are combined with a versatile combination of laminates depending on each model’s requirement. Perfect for all-round performance and durability.
Carbon Torsion Control
Airush Carbon Torsion Control creates a unique performance advantage developed specifically for performance freeride boards. Traditionally higher flex boards, which are ideal for freeride, have significant torsional flex. Carbon Torsion Control features bias oriented carbon fiber along the heel edge. Specifically reducing the amount of torsional flex in this area allowing you to ride the board flatter for increased comfort and speed.
On the Airush Livewire V4 is our ultra durable multipurpose HD Grindrite sintered base. This dual composite bottom sheet is self-lubricating, self-healing and highly abrasion resistant. This Grindrite base makes the Livewire the perfect crossover board. Increased performance in competition wakestyle as well as for sliders and kickers.
Airush introduced FMS rating 6 years ago as the first brand to quantify how much a twintip flexes. Instead of the good old “feel” test, FMS takes into account the board’s length and deflection. This can be very deceptive due to the impact of the length on the overall stiffness. A lower rating indicates a softer board more suited to freeride. Contrarily higher rated stiffer boards are more suited to freestyle.
ABS Reinforced Inserts
No more pulled or broken inserts from hard landings or crashes. Featured on all Airush boards, the ABS Reinforced Inserts create the ultimate amount of durability whether riding with Boots or Straps.
