2017 Airush Core Collection Launch
DYNEEMA LOAD FRAME: REDUCES CANOPY STRETCH BY 30%
Airush’s next generation dyneema load frame significantly reduces load on the kite canopy.

2017 AIRUSH LITHIUM
5M I 6M I 7M I 8M I 9M I 10M I 12M I 14M I 17M
THE WORLD’S FAVORITE FREERIDE KITE
INCREDIBLY STABLE WITH SMOOTH CONSISTENT DRIVE
FAST AND SIMPLE TO RELAUNCH DUE TO THE DELTA HYBRID DESIGN
As the do-all kite in the Airush range, the Lithium has been proven to meet the requirements of
riders looking to do a bit of everything: freeride, jumping, looping and waves. With amazing park
power, stability, and ease of use, the Lithium is simply the perfect kite. The focus of wingtip and
strut layout in conjunction with the Delta Hybrid design ensures the quickest response through
the air as well as instant relaunch. The square wingtip with increased area improves unhooked
and overall performance without sacrificing the legendary relaunch, stability or wind range.
The Lithium 17m features the same Lithium freeride flying characteristics but optimized for
extremely light wind. Reinforcement has been minimized to save weight and optimized for the
unique loads in lighter winds. This optimization compensates for the weight of the additional
struts, increasing the stability when the wind picks up, and working in conjunction with the load
frame to increase the longevity of the canopy.
2017 AIRUSH UNION
6M I 7M I 8M I 9M I 10M I 12M I 14M I 16M
INTERMEDIATE TO ADVANCED ALL ROUND VERSATILITY
DIRECT AND RESPONSIVE STEERING
The Union has set itself as the new benchmark for the intermediate to advanced rider looking for all
round versatility. It unites the key freestyle characteristics of the Razor with the key characteristics of our
industry leading Wave kite and the freeride abilities of the Lithium. For 2017, the updated V3.2 bridle
configuration features reduced bridle length without compromising on turning and depower.
The result remains a superbly balanced kite that excels in the broadest range of conditions, responding
to your demands no matter what the discipline.

grooving pattern that helps you hang on through all conditions with maximum grip and comfort.
Developed as the first ever bar that has four length adjustments, the Core bar can be changed from
45-55cm or 52-62xm with simple and easy changes. This allows the bar to be used from our absolutely
smallest kite to the largest kite in the Airush range.
The PU coated depower line, with reduced diameter tubing, makes sheeting in and out effortless. This
PU coated line extends the lifespan of the centerline and increases the reliability of all Airush bars.
Airush Bars have safety as their first priority. An industry standard Brain Quick Release and color-
coding on all parts makes the Airush system hassle free for all riders. Continuing for 2017, the Low Y
on the center-lines allows for a quick single line flag out for those situations where you need it the

4'11" X 21 1/16" X 2 3/8" 80cm Mast
The Airush Core foilboard is designed to enhance the experience of freeride foiling. The board
features a large bevel on the underside of the rail which allows the board to be ridden at a stronger
angle with less surface area touching the water, thus reducing drag. The fine rail in combination
with the strong bevel allows you to position the board on its rail for an effortless water start. Then
the short, wide shape, combined with a reversed Featuring all of the shape technology of our Team
Carbon Foil, the Core Foil is a true performance Foil that redefines beginner to advanced
The mast and the fuselage are constructed from aviation grade anodized aluminum alloy 6082 T6,
with assembly parts precision CNC milled. Wings are High Modulus prepreg carbon compression
molded using high precision molds. A full fused connection between the mast and front fuselage
means that the front wing, which deals with the majority of the load, has the least flex possible.
