AIRUSH LITHIUM PROGRESSION DEPOWER FREERIDE KITE
The Lithium Progression kite construction features an amazing number of features while still living up to its name of simplicity, durability, and performance. The Lithium Progression kite features the industry standard, Teijin T9600 Single Rip Stop Canopy, which is extremely resistant to UV, stretching and the abuse that kiters deliver on a daily basis.
The V2.1 Bridle System on the Progression offers a functional and stable setup when working together with the Delta Hybrid Design. This combination gives the most amount of wind range while riding and makes relaunching extremely fast.
Unique to the Lithium Progression is the multi-strut in inflation system with 9mm Inflate Valves. Although simple, this in inflation system has proved reliable over years of use throughout the industry. This multi-strut in inflation system allows for easy maintenance and repairs, especially in scenarios where the kites are used extensively.
V2.1 Bridle System
The V2.1 Bridle System on the Lithium Progression and Progression SPS provides support to the slightly larger leading edge to increase stability, support, and wind range of the Delta Hybrid design. The V2.1 Bridle also keeps steering tension at all times, ideal for entry and intermediate users require full control while riding completely depowered.
Made of tough Zytel material for high strength and resistance to abrasion and impact, the Airush Pulley has the pigtails hole directionally correct to eliminate bridle wear. With a breaking strength of 550 kg, the Airush pulley was designed specifically for use on all Airush kites.
ON ALL AIRUSH KITES, THE EMERGENCY SAFETY HANDLES ARE PROVIDED ON EACH WINGTIPS. THIS MAXIMIZE THE CONTROL AND SECURITY WHEN PERFORMING SELF-RESCUING.
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.
KEVLAR, FOUND IN BULLET PROOF 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.
REAR LINE ADJUSTMENT
The Rear Line Adjustment featured on all Airush kites allows for quick changes in the kites bar pressure and response. With adjustment towards "High" the kite will have increase bar pressure and decrease turning speed. Moving back towards the rear of the wingtip will decrease bar pressure and increase turning speed.
Smaller kites have 3 Bar Pressure settings, Larger kites only have Medium and Low Bar Pressure options available.
