Airush Load Frame V4
The Airush Load Frame, featuring WebTech, has been the key to setting the ultimate benchmark in durability without compromising on weight.
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, and utilise the ballistic high-modulus polyethylene web fibers instead – increasing strength and minimising weight.
This kite has always been a favourite of the team, great all rounder and faster in the turns means we have always had a fun time flying it. We have found these really do well with all level of kiters creating good apparent wind when ridden fast.
Integrated High Modulus Polyethylene Yarns
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 are integrated into the canopy through reinforced taping that allows them to elongate when under extreme load, absorbing most of the shock that traditionally would have run through the canopy. At the same time, they carry the primary load of the canopy, preventing stretch and increasing long-term performance.
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.
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.
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.
Kevlar Reinforcements in critical areas protect the kite from wear while still minimising weight.
SPS & FBI
The oversized SPS valve (Single Point Inflation System) optimises inflation and deflation. The Fast Bladder Inflation (FBI) increased wall thickness and oversized diameter tubing eliminates tube kink. The SPS cover supports the tubing, further limiting UV damage to the material and preventing over flexing when packing.
Recycled Polyester Kite Bag
Around 36 billion plastic bottles are produced every year and more than 30% of non-recycled plastics end up in the rivers or oceans.
Waste 2 Wear recycle 100% post-consumer plastic bottles into eco-friendly fabrics. This unique process turns environmentally damaging waste into usable, sustainable yarns. The recycled yarns are then combined with natural fibres to be woven or knitted into eco-friendly fabrics so that they can be used for garments, home textiles and accessories.
We are really pleased to see the brands working towards making the sport more sustainable. To see Airush’s other efforts towards sustainability please follow this link.
