WAVE - Airush Kiteboarding

  • New Wing Tip Design.
  • Precise steering.
  • Superb drift characteristic.

The 2018 Airush Wave kite delivers further refinement to the dedicated wave purist or surf freestyle rider. One of the key aspects of the Wave kite is the unique ability of the kite to engage smooth power delivery and precise steering.

Whether far back in the window during a powered bottom turn in onshore conditions, flying far forward in the window in offshore conditions, or at a high angle of attack: the Wave delivers.

The redesigned wingtip enhanced these capabilities and avoids the wingtip “flaring” when over sheeted, preventing the kite from dropping back in the window. The all-new Airush Dyneema Load Frame V4 featuring WebTech has enabled us to increase the strength of the Wave further, without adding extra weight.

WebTech expands our exclusive Dyneema Load Frame throughout the high load areas, such as the wingtips, by utilizing the web fibers to absorb high loads, further increasing the durability and response of the kite.

The all-new Airush Dyneema Load Frame featuring WebTech is the key to having the lightest single strut kite on the market and not compromising on durability.

By expanding our exclusive Dyneema Load Frame throughout the areas normally occupied by Dacron with Webtech, we are able to eliminate this heavy fabric and utilize the Dyneema web fibers instead – weighing less without compromising strength.

We achieve all of these weight savings while still using our legendary TECHNOFORCE D2 by Teijin and Dimension Polyant Leading edge and strut material.
INTERGRATED DYNEEMA

INTERGRATED DYNEEMA

Central to the concept of the Load Frame are the lightweight Dyneema yarns, where each single yarn can carry almost 40kg of load. These are integrated into the canopy through a 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.

AIRUSH BUMPERS

AIRUSH BUMPERS

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 REINFORCEMENT

KEVLAR REINFORCEMENT

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.
FBI ONE PUMP VALVES

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.
WASTE 2 WEAR KITEBAG

WASTE 2 WEAR KITEBAG

Around 36 billion plastic bottles are produced every year, and more than 30% of non-recycled plastics will end up in the rivers or oceans. Consider this, and remember that these waterways are our playground. We have teamed up with one of the leaders in recycled plastic, and now we produce many of our kitebags and key accessories in collaboration with Waste 2 Wear.

Waste 2 Wear recycle 100% post-consumer plastic bottles into eco-friendly fabrics. This unique process involves turning environmentally damaging waste into useable, sustainable yarns. The recycled yarns are then combined with natural fibers to be woven or knitted into eco-friendly fabrics, suitable for garments, home textiles and accessories.
