Airush Razor V8 Kite
Working closely with World Champion Alex Pastor, Airush focused relentlessly on fine-tuning the performance characteristics of the Razor.
While focusing on mind blowing pop, unhooked ability and kite looping, the Razor also features an incredible wind range and ease of use, which is way beyond the expectations of a purist freestyle kite. Developed specifically with Alex Pastor, Bruna Kajiya and Anthar Racca for competition winning performance!
Airush LoadFrame V4: By expanding our exclusive Load Frame with WebTech throughout the areas normally occupied by Dacron, we are able to minimise or completely remove the heavier fabric and utilize the Ballistic high-modulus polyethylene web fibers instead – increasing strength and minimising weight.
Integrated High Modulus Polyethylene Yarns Central to the concept of the Load Frame, Airush introduce the lightweight Ultra High Modulus yarns. Think of them as lightweight webs, with engineered energy absorption under load! These yarns are integrated into the canopy through 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.
Technoforce D2: This premium fabric is used in conjunction with the Airush 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.
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 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 Reinforcement 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.
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.
Turning Speed The rear lines on the Razor affect turning speed of the kite. By moving the rear lines towards the leading edge, the Razor becomes static and stable, perfect for wakestyle moves. Moving the rear lines towards the trailing edge allows the razor to move extremely quick, perfect for boosting and kitelooping. The number of attachments vary based on Razor specific size.
5th Line The 5th line featured on the Razor is the only method of support to maximize the performance of a dedicated C-kite. The support from the 5th line allows for a finer leading edge, giving the Razor the ultimate combination of speed, pop and slack for unhooked tricks.
