Airush Union V2 2017
- Intermediate to advanced all around versatility
- Direct and responsive steering
- Unhooked performance
The Union has set itself as the new benchmark for the intermediate to advanced rider looking for all round versatility. Because it unites the key freestyle characteristics of the Razor with the key characteristics of our industry leading Wave kite and the freeride abilities of the Lithium, it’s perfect for everyone. For 2017, the updated V3.2 bridle configuration features reduced bridle length without compromising on turning and depower.
The result remains a superbly balanced kite that excels in the broadest range of conditions, responding to your demands no matter what the discipline.
Next Gen Dyneema Load Frame
The Airush Load Frame comprises a unique web of Dyneema that supports the primary loading off the canopy. These sections of low stretch, ultra-light Dyneema yarn are designed to be subjected to individual loads well beyond that of the canopy cloth.
This premium fabric is used in conjunction with the Dyneema Load frame for the ultimate combination of durability and performance. Ongoing testing has highlighted the lowest stretch and UV Stability, along with the highest long-term reliability of any fabric available.
The V3.2 bridle system, now 10% shorter, contributes significantly to the turning speed and performance of supported leading edge kites. In addition, the total depower adds immensely to the safety benefits.
Bar Pressure Adjustment
All Airush bridled kites feature the Bar Pressure Adjustments on the leading edge of the kite. These options allow the rider to select the perfect amount of feedback and comfort in the bar while riding with simple and quick adjustments before your session!
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. This in conjunction with the Airush High Velocity pump makes inflating your kite extremely fast to get you on the water as quickly as possible.
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.
On all Airush kites, the emergency safety handles are provided on each wingtips. This maximises the control and security when performing self-rescuing.
FBI One Pump Valves
The oversized SPIS valve (Single Point Inflation System) optimises inflation and likewise deflation. The Fast Bladder inflation (FBI) features increased wall thickness and oversized diameter tubing. This eliminates tube kink and reduces stress on your pump therefore resulting in a quick and easy inflation. Furthermore faster inflation means more time to go riding!
Rear Line Adjustment
The Rear Line Adjustment featured on all Airush kites allows for quick changes in the kites bar pressure and response. With adjustment towards “High” the kite will have 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.
Made of tough Zytel material for high strength and resistance to abrasion and impact, the Airush Pulley has the pigtails hole directionally correct to eliminate bridle wear. With a breaking strength of 550 kg, the Airush pulley is designed specifically to be use on all Airush kites.
Kevlar, found in bullet proof vests, is found throughout the Airush kites. These Kevlar Reinforcements are only put in the most critical areas to protect from wearing while still minimizing weight which affects the kites performance.
