Airush Vantage V3 Kite
IN A NUTSHELL...
The Vantage V3 introduces the latest evolution of Airush’s High Speed, High Aspect Race and Boosting machine. Perfect for going fast on the slalom or upwind racecourse, or as a pure freeride kite for the rider looking for massive airtime even in the lightest of wind.
The High-Aspect Design and Refined Foil shape work together to optimize the speed through the window, allowing the kite to sit far forward, giving maximum top end speed and competitive upwind ability.
The V3 Bridle System provides optimum sheeting range while maintaining steering even when completely de-powered. The Vantage V3 is compatible with all Airush 4-Line Control Bars.
Airush Load Frame V4: By expanding Airush’s exclusive Load Frame with WebTech throughout the areas normally occupied by Dacron, they’re able to minimize or completely remove the heavier fabric and utilize the Ballistic High-Modulus Polyethylene Web Fibers instead – increasing strength and minimizing weight.
Integrated High Modulus Polyethylene Fibres Central to the concept of the Load Frame are the lightweight Ultra High Modulus yarns. Think of them as a Lightweight Web with engineered energy absorption under load, similar to that of a spider web. These yarns are integrated into the canopy through reinforced taping that allows them to elongate when under extreme load. 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 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.
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, which in conjunction with the WMFG Pump, makes inflating your kite extremely fast compared to others!
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 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 kite’s performance.
SPS and 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.
V3 Bridle: The V3 Bridle System contributes significantly to the feeling and performance of supported leading edge kites, in addition the Total Depower adds immensely to the safety benefits. The positioning of the bridle attachment points on the LE of the kite, combined with the V pulleys, give a range of movement. The result is steering that is light, but direct enough to feel where your kite is while riding.
