UNION III Kiteboarding Kite Freeriding Freestyle
- Big Air, Hang Time, and Horizontal Pull in the Kiteloops.
- Intermediate to advanced all-round versatility.
- Unhooked performance.
The all-new UNION III Kite has been re-designed from the bottom up to improve key areas. The UNION III delivers even more lift and hangtime when going for Big Air, along with quicker and more responsive steering.
The shape has been refined to sit slightly further forward in the window whilst retaining the light and ultra-responsive steering.
A new wing-tip design prevents back stalling while the increased linear power delivery has made it even more suitable for freeriding, freestyle and wave riders alike.
The UNION III is the natural step up for the Lithium user looking for increased jumping performance and quicker depower response, or for the freestyle rider wanting unhooked performance with the usability of increased depower and a more forgiving feel.
LASTS TWICE AS LONG
The all-new Airush Dyneema Load Frame featuring WebTech is the key to having the lightest single strut kite on the market and not compromising on durability.
By expanding our exclusive Dyneema Load Frame throughout the areas normally occupied by Dacron with Webtech, we are able to eliminate this heavy fabric and utilize the Dyneema web fibers instead – weighing less without compromising strength.
We achieve all of these weight savings while still using our legendary TECHNOFORCE D2 by Teijin and Dimension Polyant Leading edge and strut material.
Central to the concept of the Load Frame are the lightweight Dyneema yarns, where each single yarn can carry almost 40kg of load. These are integrated into the canopy through a reinforced taping that allows them to elongate when under extreme load, absorbing most of the shock that traditionally would have run through the canopy. At the same time, they carry the primary load of the canopy, preventing stretch and increasing long-term performance.
This premium fabric is used in conjunction with the Dyneema Load Frame for the ultimate combination of durability and performance. Ongoing testing has highlighted the lowest stretch and UV Stability, along with the highest long-term reliability of any fabric available.

WASTE 2 WEAR KITEBAG
Around 36 billion plastic bottles are produced every year, and more than 30% of non-recycled plastics will end up in the rivers or oceans. Consider this, and remember that these waterways are our playground. We have teamed up with one of the leaders in recycled plastic, and now we produce many of our kitebags and key accessories in collaboration with Waste 2 Wear.
Waste 2 Wear recycle 100% post-consumer plastic bottles into eco-friendly fabrics. This unique process involves turning environmentally damaging waste into useable, sustainable yarns. The recycled yarns are then combined with natural fibers to be woven or knitted into eco-friendly fabrics, suitable for garments, home textiles and accessories.
