2021 Airush Kite Lithium V12
All-around freeride performance.
Precise steering with light bar pressure.
Powerful delta hybrid with a huge wind range.
For the rider looking for a kite that provides an endless amount of fun on the water, the Lithium is the ultimate all-around freeride performance kite. Light at the bar and easy to use in the hands of a beginner or pro, the Lithium is predictable and stable in the air, and has incredible park ability. The powerful Delta Hybrid design has a huge wind range and, combined with the wingtip shape and strut layout, ensures the quickest response through the window as well as instant relaunch.
- Lighter bar pressure.
- New Construction.
The emergency safety handles are provided on each wingtip. This maximizes the control and security when performing a self-rescue.
V3.2 BRIDLE SYSTEM
The key benefit of the V3.2 bridle is that the kite maintains steering even when completely de-powered, increasing the usable wind range and overall performance significantly while adding immense safety benefits. The positioning of the bridle attachment points on the LE of the kite, combined with the V pulleys result in lighter steering, but direct enough to feel where your kite is while riding. With a breaking strength of 550 kg, the Airush pulley was designed specifically for use on all Airush kites.
UNITY STRUT CONNECTION
The Unity Strut Connection provides a solid point from strut to leading edge, to create a stiff structure that helps in performance and relaunching.
REAR LINE ADJUSTMENT
The rear lines affect the turning speed of the kite. By moving the rear lines towards the leading edge, the kite becomes static and stable, perfect for wave riding. Moving the rear lines towards the trailing edge allows the kite to move faster, perfect for foiling.
HEAVY DUTY LE
By using our Gradient Load Technology on the bridle insert points and leading-edge closure (along with double stitching), as well as Dimension Polyant Dacron, we have created a heavy-duty leading edge that supports the increased performance demands.
Kevlar, found in bulletproof vests, is found throughout the Airush kites. These Kevlar Reinforcements are only put in the most critical areas to protect from wearing while still minimizing weight which affects the kites performance.
XL INFLATE/DEFLATE VALVE
The XL inflate/deflate valve features an insanely easy and fast way to inflate and deflate your kite. The large opening creates maximum flow of air and reduces fatigue and stress on your pump. This in conjunction with the Airush high-velocity pump makes inflating your kite extremely fast to get you on the water as quickly as possible.
Airush bumpers are found throughout the leading edge of the kites to reduce wear and increase durability on rough surfaces. These bumpers are key for increasing the lifespan of Airush kites.
SPS & FBI
The oversized SPS valve (Single Point Inflation System) optimizes inflation and deflation. The Fast Bladder Inflation (FBI) features increased wall thickness and oversized diameter tubing, thus eliminating tube kink, reducing stress on your pump, and enabling quick and easy inflation. The SPS cover supports the tubing, further limiting UV damage to the material and preventing over flexing when packing.
