Airush Union V4 Kite
The new Airush Union V4 Kitesurfing Kite is the Open-C Kite you’ve been after. Unhooked mania, without the fuss of a C Kite!
The Airush Union V4 has been re-designed from the bottom up to improve key areas for 2019. Delivering even more lift and hang time when going for big air, along with quicker and more responsive steering, the shape of the Union has been refined to sit slightly further forward in the window, while still retaining the light and ultra-responsive steering it’s known for.
The Wingtip 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 is the natural step up for the Lithium user looking for increased high end jumping performance, as well as more forward steering. The Union is also ideal for the Freestyle Rider wanting Unhooked Performance and a more forgiving feel.
For a more direct response and totally fresh feel, the new Fixed Bridle adds another dimension for an Intermediate to Advanced Rider. It offers a direct response and uses less bar input for immediate steering and crisper feel for improved kite looping!
Airush Load Frame V4 ft. WebTech
The Airush Load Frame ft. WebTech has been the key to setting the ultimate benchmark in durability, without compromising on weight. By expanding their exclusive Load Frame with WebTech, Airush are able to completely remove the heavier fabric and utilize the Ballistic, High-Modulus Polyethylene Web Fibers instead – increasing strength and minimizing weight.
Integrated High Modulus Polyethylene Yarns
Central to the Load Frame are the lightweight Ultra High Modulus Yarns, of which each single yarn can carry 40kg. 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.
This premium fabric is designed with a High-Density Structure using High Tenacity Double-Coated Polyester yarn in a Double Ripstop Configuration. The Double Coating protects the yarn as much as possible from UV and abrasion damage. This ensures that the canopy remains as crisp and responsive for as long as possible. This material is used in conjunction with the Airush Load Frame, resulting in the ultimate combination of durability and 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.
On all Airush kites, the emergency safety handles are provided on each wingtips. This maximizes the control and security when performing a self-rescue.
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 bulletproof vests, is found throughout the Airush kites. These Kevlar Reinforcements are only put in the most critical areas, to protect from wear and tear, while still minimizing weight that affects the kites performance.
SPS and FBI Technology
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.
