Design details

The 2016 Airush Razor keeps the dedicated C-Kite feel and performance that wakestyle and freestyle riders demand. Working closely with World Champion Alex Pastor we relentlessly focus on increasing the performance characteristics, specifically mind-blowing pop, unhooked ability and kite looping. The Razor has great range, along with comfort for everyday freestyle riders.

The next generation Aramid Load Frame takes the biggest innovation in kite construction to a whole new level and is combined with the Technoforce D2 by Teijin, for the ultimate combination of durability and lightweight performance.

Considering size specific changes for 2016, the 5.5 m has been refined to add better stability and gust response by lowering aspect ratio and increasing profile depth. A new 15m size has been added, this extra large size has been tweaked to have lower weight by optimizing the size of the reinforcement panels and the LE diameter to make it feel like a smaller kite.

  • Alex Pastor Signature Freestyle Kite
  • Precision, Stability and Steering
  • Perfect unhooked performance.

HARDCORE CONSTRUCTION Airush Razor 2016 HARDCORE CONSTRUCTION
All Airush kites feature the Hardcore Construction, a focus and commitment to structural integrity.

  1. AIRUSH FRAME TECHNOLOGY
    Airush Frame technology distributes the load off all stitched lines on all main panels of the canopy area on impact during a crash, while the outer frame features gradient load wingtips that integrates progressive density cloth in te high load areas radiating from the attachment points.
  2. ONE PUMP VALVES
    Increased wall thickness and oversized diameter of the tubing eliminates tube kink and reduces stress on your pump, which facilitates quick and easy inflation.
  3. GRADIENT LOAD WINGTIPS
    Gradient load wingtips integrate progressive density cloth in the high load areas radiating from the attachment points. Bomb proof trailing edge (TE) construction featuring a 3 layer tapering of heavy duty dacron material to increase durability of the te. Available on the DNA and Lithium.
  4. FOUR PIECE STRUTS
    The new 4-piece strut has added a double folded straight stitch seam aligned with a 20mm wide webbing strip to reduce point of wearing. This increases durability and rigidness of the struts in all Airush kites.
  5. STRUT CONNECTION
    The Unity Strut Connection provides a solid point connection from strut to leading egded to create a stiff structure which helps in performance and relaunching. The Unity Strut Connection working in conjunction with the 4 Piece Struts allows for a thinner and lighter strut.
  6. AIRUSH PULLEY
    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.
  7. LEADING EDGE SEAM
    A Leading Edge connection seam with a slick 19mm soft webbing reinforcement to handle harder crashes. Increased mark cloth sections at the front of all canopy seams at the leading edge to stop stitching and seam wear points.
5TH LINE Airush Razor 2016 5TH LINE
Featured on the Airush Razor Team, the 5th line allows for a simple, safe and effective support system. Ideal for a thinner leading edge and a C-shape arc.

TIPS & TUNING

“The Razor kite has continued to be the premium C-Kite on the market. We have worked with the Pro Team to give them and you what is needed for perfect freestyle and wakestyle performance. We have added a 15m size, which has been an ongoing development over the past few years with our team riders. It has been a weapon during lighter PKRA heats and now we deliver it to the everyday rider who wants to get as much time on the water to learn their freestyle or wakestyle tricks.” – Mark Pattison: Airush Kite Designer
