NEW LIFT. NEW RULES.
The key consideration when designing the new Lift was to redefine the capabilities of a kite to provide maximum boost, precise steering and absolute stability.
Behind the design
Driving the development and testing was Jason van Der Spuy, a key new addition to the Airush Big Air team, where he worked closely with legendary kite designer Mark Pattison.
According to Jason
“I knew exactly what I wanted for a future Big Air Kite, as the
discipline has become more diverse. I needed to be able to go huge, but due to some
of the more critical new moves, I needed absolute precision and intuitiveness. Working
with Airush was amazing, Mark and the team around him would rework every size,
every bridle and details till we got it perfect.”

Amongst the new features you’ll find on the Lift are the intuitive loop and climbing performance, five struts for stability in extreme conditions, and a new and Improved
bridle for enhanced steering response. This is the kite designed for intermediate to
advanced riders who want exceptional hangtime, explosive power, and stability in even
the wildest conditions.
“The Lift V3 is my weapon of choice for Big Air. The kite is very responsive and has great
lift just like the name indicates ;). I use this kite for everything related to big air, from
big boosts to double loops. I recommend this kite to anyone who wants to have a
exponential progression in big air.“ Valentín Hoenderop – Next Generation Airush Big
The shape of the kite is an open C shape with round wingtips for speed and looping on
All new bridle system
The new compact single pulley bridle is optimized for faster, more responsive steering
and stability in extreme conditions. Giving you the best of both worlds, the bridle
utilizes a stopper ball when sheeting in and prevents the kite from over-sheeting while
giving you the precision of the fixed bridle experience. The benefit of a pulley is that it
allows for greater depower when sheeting out.
Redesigned Body and Planform
The Larger wingtips enhance the steering speed and stabilize the lift from the wingtip
area, while still maintaining a higher aspect ratio for boosting and glide. We’ve increased
the leading edge diameter towards the wingtips further enhancing the tip stability during
high loading and aggressive steering.
We’ve refined the construction of the trailing edge for smoother airflow. The Lift features
a TECHNO FORCE™/D2 canopy and a gradient subframe, with Kevlar Reinforcement, and
Airush Bumpers for extra durability.
This kite has three bar pressure settings on the
wingtips and a single-point inflations system that optimizes inflation and deflation.
“The Airush was fun to fly, easy, efficient, the average Joe would be f*ing sending it
on this thing” Ruben Lenten – Blank Kite tester
“The Lift V3´s stability gives you access to far higher winds and confidence – for me that
leads to bigger numbers. Handling is exceptional – trusting, and solid. Amen”
