Airush Ultra 2s have arrived in Qatar and doing up a Video review covering the 9/ 12 and 14 Metre, this will come in the coming days, so far ridden the 9 and 12 with both twin tip and foil board and very happy.

Below are some quick action shots of the 9 Metre.

We've had the V2's in the UK for a 10 days.
Plenty of sessions on the 10, 9, 7m..
First delivery sold out, waiting for the second.

10 is an interesting kite. This and the sizes above have new shaping. As I understand the 9 and below are virtually identical.
Look lovely in the air. Visually a big improvement..

Ultra I ve heard is very powerfull. Should the 10 be powerfull enough to replace a 12 meter inefficient wave kite ( all of them )??

9m Naish boxer '17/'18 for 620€ new or Ultra V2 in 9m for 830€ also new. What is the better deal?

Based on enthusiasm on this forum I would say Ultra is the better kite in this one strut segment. But is it 33% better?

I would use it for 55% foil, 25% surf (more often onshore than sideshore) and 20% TT.
