Re: Guide to the Airush Union 4 - real world what's new, where it's gone, what it's like..

I don't suppose the bridles are MUCH shorter this year? Whilst I like the steering feel in the older unions, the length of the bridle makes setting up and packing up in strong winds a little more time consuming. Indeed - the new bridle is shorter, lighter, and more compact. I'd have to measure one ...

Re: Airush Ultra: one strut kite that meets expectations of a ram air lover

Can any of the Airush users out there compare a 2012 Lithium 14 LW kite to a current Ultra V2 12 or 14m? I am wondering if I can get the same low end out of the new Ultra 12 or should I get the 14? I assume the ULTRAs have better high end. I always the thought the 14 LW turned well for a kite that ...

A separate review. John Bouchet - Jersey - UK This guy is well ahead of me in standard (freestyle) and also foils and waverides, so pretty allround.. He uses Razor mostly with a bit of Ultra and Wave. I had a mega first session on the Union V4 10m yesterday, I stuck my woo in freestyle mode and was ...

Re: Airush Lithium Progression 12m?

different cloth, no load frame, simpler bridle, no one pump... same pattern... yes, but.. It does make a difference to how it flies. Not at low loadings so much but at high loadings the Core is better and will wear far better too. All Airush hybrids fly on standard geometry bars - ie all 4 lines the...

Guide to the Airush Union 4 - real world what's new, where it's gone, what it's like..

Hi All, Over here in the UK we have a good following on the Union series kites - so I thought it prudent to get this on the web as reference for anyone who's wanting answers when looking at the new Union 4. Airush do dance about with this kite between years and 2019 is no exception. So for all those...

Re: Airush WTH are you thinking with the Union 4?

Mike, Although you are making a good point, I don't think that 1-2" either way make that much of a difference when a kite is in the sweet spot of its intended range. Try it first and then come back. Please. The extra power is more significant on this than any other Union, and turning is faster, tho...

Re: Airush WTH are you thinking with the Union 4?

Just in from a gusty light session on the Union V4 12m Interesting. I'll post up full report on another thread, as this one I think is off on the wrong foot. Bear in mind I've flown the 1, 2, 3, as well as all the kites that proceeded it back to the original lift,and i've had my ear to the ground wi...
