Kite Airush Diamond 2016
For this exciting female-specific product range we worked closely with PKRA contender Bruna Kajiya, to create a collection that offers an extremely versatile range of products with female-specific attributes.
SLC DESIGN NEXT GENERATION DYNEEMA LOAD FRAME V3 Bridle HARDCORE CONSTRUCTION
– Versatile female-specific performance
– Wide wind range
– Short bar throw with light bar pressure
The Diamond Kite features a refined profile and balanced configuration that appeals to a broad level of users, from performance freestyle and wave riding while still being stable and user friendly enough for intermediate riders.
The unique shape is light on the bar, with a short bar throw so that even the lightest of riders can easily get the kite to the edge of the window in stronger conditions.
The Diamond Series kite features Technoforce D2 by Teijin in conjunction with the Airush Load Frame, giving any female rider an insanely durable kite that will last them season after season.
The Supported Leading Edge c-kite or SLC is dedicated to riders who want everything from a 5 line C-kite in a 4 line format. The SLC concept gives a C-shape arc and squarer wingtips,
which delivers great turning and direct response in combination with the bridle that supports the leading edge, great range, depower and relaunching abilities.
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 highest long-term reliability of any materials.
The V3 bridle system contributes significantly to the feeling and performance of supported leading edge kites, in addition the total depower adds immensely to the safety benefits.
The positioning of the bridle attachment points on the LE of the kite, combined with the V pulleys, give a range of movement. The result is steering that is light, but direct enough to feel where your kite is while riding.
This also enables the kite to be steered and controlled when the kite is completely de-powered, which is ideal for wave riding.
All Airush kites feature the Hardcore Construction, a focus and commitment to structural integrity.
AIRUSH FRAME TECHNOLOGY
Airush Frame technology distributes the load off all stitched lines on all main panels of the canopy area on impact during a crash,
while the outer frame features gradient load wingtips that integrates progressive density cloth in te high load areas radiating from the attachment points.
ONE PUMP VALVES
Increased wall thickness and oversized diameter of the tubing eliminates tube kink and reduces stress on your pump, which facilitates quick and easy inflation.
GRADIENT LOAD WINGTIPS
Gradient load wingtips integrate progressive density cloth in the high load areas radiating from the attachment points.
Bomb proof trailing edge (TE) construction featuring a 3 layer tapering of heavy duty dacron material to increase durability of the te. Available on the DNA and Lithium.
FOUR PIECE STRUTS
The new 4-piece strut has added a double folded straight stitch seam aligned with a 20mm wide webbing strip to reduce point of wearing. This increases durability and rigidness of the struts in all Airush kites.
The Unity Strut Connection provides a solid point connection from strut to leading egded to create a stiff structure which helps in performance and relaunching.
The Unity Strut Connection working in conjunction with the 4 Piece Struts allows for a thinner and lighter strut.
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.
LEADING EDGE SEAM
A Leading Edge connection seam with a slick 19mm soft webbing reinforcement to handle harder crashes. Increased mark cloth sections at the front of all canopy seams at the leading edge to stop stitching and seam wear points.
