ULTRA - Airush Kiteboarding

ULTRA

  • Der leichteste Kite, den wir je gemacht haben. (Der 9m Ultra ist fast 30% leichter im Vergleich zum 9m Lithium)
  • Verdoppelte Haltbarkeit (Neuer V4 Dyneema Loadframe mit WebTech)
  • Perfekt für Freeride Foil, Leichtwind und Strapless-Kiten.

Fünf Jahre nach der Markteinführung des ersten One-Strut-Kites stellen wir den neuen Airush ULTRA vor.

Das rasante Wachstum im Foil-Kiten, der zunehmende Trend beim driftorientiertem Strapless-Waveriding und die Anstrengungen, die Grenze bei Leichtwind immer weiter nach unten zu verschieben, forcierten die Nachfrage nach einer neuen Generation von Kites. Airush stellt mit dem ULTRA einen Vertreter dieser neuen Generation mit der leichtesten und stärksten Technologie vor, die jemals entwickelt wurde.

Zielgruppe:

  • Der ultimative Freeride-Foilboard-Kite mit unglaublichen Relaunch-Fähigkeiten, der auch in böigen Bedingungen perfekt funktioniert.
  • Die Stabilität, das Profil und das leichte Gewicht lassen den Ultra beim „Down the line“ mitschweben und der Kite kann für echtes Surf Feeling ohne viel Kitezug drucklos gestellt werden, um die Wellen radikal zu bearbeiten.
  • Mit den größeren Größen kann man unabhängig vom jeweiligen Level aufgrund der beschriebenen Eigenschaften auch mit dem Twintip viel Spaß haben.

LIGHTEST KITE WE HAVE EVER MADE

Considering that the 9m Ultra is nearly 1 kg (2.2 lbs) lighter than the 9m Lithium, you begin to understand how the kite stays in the air way beyond any other inflatable strut kites. This takes it into the realm of foil kites, without any of the traditional water relaunch and complexity challenges.

The Benefits of the lightweight are:
The Ultra stays in the air in the absolute lightest of wind, ideal for gusty conditions, difficult launches and marginal conditions. You can ride one size smaller than anything else, giving you a lighter, smaller and even more responsive kite. The kite maintains steering even when far forward in the window and/or underpowered. Relaunching is easier due to the lightweight.
LASTS TWICE AS LONG

LASTS TWICE AS LONG

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.
WebTech

WebTech

WebTech replaces the traditional Dacron reinforcing by channeling the broader loads into the Load Frame through a web "sub frame" of Dyneema. This is featured in key areas such as the primary attachment points on the leading edge or the rear attachment points, while also being used to support structural components such as the center strut.
TECHNOFORCE D2

TECHNOFORCE D2

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.
V3 BRIDLE

V3 BRIDLE

The V3 Bridle along with high sweep in the leading edge gives immense depower while allowing the kite to fly forward in the window when heading upwind or high apparent wind on your foil.

SINGLE STRUT PERFORMANCE

By staying with a single strut (as opposed to a zero strut design) combined with the higher overall sweep on the leading edge we maintain easy relaunching capabilities in marginal winds.

In addition, the square wingtips allow for reverse relaunching for more experienced riders and creates more leverage to get the kite to roll over.

Because it’s an inflatable you never have to worry about your kite getting swamped with water no matter how much time it spends in the water.
LIGHTWEIGHT COMPACT KITEBAG

LIGHTWEIGHT COMPACT KITEBAG

Even the kitebag has been optimized, using premium lightweight Ripstop nylon (mountaineering technology) to create a unique bag that folds into its own pocket and weighs less than 250 gm.
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.
XL INFLATE/DEFLATE VALVE

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.
FBI ONE PUMP VALVES

FBI ONE PUMP VALVES

The oversized SPIS valve (Single Point Inflation System) optimizes inflation and deflation. The Fast Bladder inflation (FBI) features increased wall thickness and oversized diameter tubing. This eliminates tube kink and reduces stress on your pump, resulting in a quick and easy inflation.
SAFETY HANDLES

SAFETY HANDLES

On all Airush kites, the emergency safety handles are provided on each wingtips. This maximize the control and security when performing self-rescuing.
AIRUSH PULLEYS

AIRUSH PULLEYS

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 was designed specifically for use on all 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.
