Airush 2020 Collection


airush.jpg

Our primary mantra has always been one of innovation, durability, and sustainability.

For 2020 that has not changed, within every category, we have worked relentlessly to bring something new to the market that solves a problem or creates a new opportunity, and like each year before, we strive to raise the bar a bit higher, add more stoke, and bring new products to the market that we believe make a difference to you, our customers.

INNOVATION | DURABILITY | SUSTAINABILITY

We launched the Surf Series in June, and now introduce you to the 2020 Airush Range where you will see some key changes. Here are some of the key products to look out for:

The One

Introducing the latest kite in the Progression range, and a revolutionary Single Strut school kite.

Lithium v11

The Lithium has a totally new shape for increased high-end performance, whilst maintaining it's legendary freeride performance.

Introducing the IQR

Our control bar range has seen some significant improvement, we introduce the Intelligent Quick Release, more affectionately known as the IQR. Adhearing to the new ISO Standard, the single-handed release mechanism activates and resets - all with a simple "Click!"

We have updated all bars to feature the new IQR, as well as improved the flying lines, to be stiffer, with lower stretch, improved breaking loads and they are now less likey to tangle. Each change has contributed positively to the overall durability and functionality of the bars. There are also a few additions to the harness loop offering, where we have included a much requested Wave Slider, and improved Large Loop for freestyle.

With the exception of the cumbersome bar end adjustments, the 2020 Core Cleat v4 is a mighty fine looking bar. Would love to see a video on the new quick release.

There are 5 bars options in the current Airush range, but we also list the older models on the website as they are still likely to be available thru out the market. I can see where you could imagine there is a larger offering.

Latest release is:

Progression Bar V3

Simple, low cost bar with leader position style adjustable bar ends, medium C-loop, 50cm depower throw and strap trim.

Clear Bar V4

Modus style adjustable bar ends/floats, medium C-loop, 50cm depower throw, cleat trim system.

Access Bar V2

Shorter bar with shorter travel for smaller frame riders. Modus style adjustable bar ends/floats, small C-loop, 40cm depower throw, strap trim system.

Ultra Bar V2

Extended travel bar with set and forget trim, light weight and simple. Modus style adjustable bar ends/floats, small C-loop + wave slider, 60cm depower throw, set and forget trim system

AP Bar V5

Five Line/Freestyle bar. Shortened bar with Modus style adjustable bar ends/floats, medium C-loop and XL C-loop, 40cm depower throw, strap trim system, five lines, lextra strong lines long leash.

All of the latest release bars feature the new IQR release system, more details of which will be coming soon.

Cheers

5 bars? These guys at Airush don't know what KISS means.

Well, with three different trim systems, a bar dedicated to smaller frame/woman/young riders and a specialist five line bar the offering is amazingly wide considering it is only five bars.

I'm constantly trying to cut the range down and did drop one bar completely for this release.

If there is maybe one luxury offering in the whole five bar range it's the Ultra Bar. However that setup of extended depower throw and set and forget trim is my personal favorite/project.

Cheers

I’m pretty sure you can reduce number of bars and kites from your range and to your surprise your sale figures might go up, too much choice is causing people pain & confusion. Take a look at flysurfer both LEI and foil kites or new North line up three kites one bar that’s more than enough to cover 95% of riders needs!
You have three version of same lithium kite (WTF?!!!)

You are right! Less is more. This short article explains how this applies to the "jam experiment".
