THE WORLD’S FAVORITE FREERIDE KITE
INCREDIBLY STABLE WITH SMOOTH CONSISTENT DRIVE
FAST AND SIMPLE TO RELAUNCH DUE TO THE DELTA HYBRID DESIGN

As the do-all kite in the Airush range, the Lithium has been proven to meet the requirements of riders looking to do a bit of everything: freeride, jumping, looping and waves. With amazing park power, stability, and ease of use, the Lithium is simply the perfect kite. The focus of wingtip and strut layout in conjunction with the Delta Hybrid design ensures the quickest response through the air as well as instant relaunch. The square wingtip with increased area improves unhooked and overall performance without sacrificing the legendary relaunch, stability or wind range.

The Lithium 17m features the same Lithium freeride flying characteristics but optimized for extremely light wind. Reinforcement has been minimized to save weight and optimized for the unique loads in lighter winds. This optimization compensates for the weight of the additional struts, increasing the stability when the wind picks up, and working in conjunction with the load frame to increase the longevity of the canopy.

NEXT GEN DYNEEMA LOAD FRAME
THE AIRUSH LOAD FRAME COMPRISES A UNIQUE WEB OF DYNEEMA THAT SUPPORTS THE PRIMARY LOADING OFF THE CANOPY. THESE SECTIONS OF LOW STRETCH, ULTRA-LIGHT DYNEEMA YARN ARE DESIGNED TO BE SUBJECTED TO INDIVIDUAL LOADS WELL BEYOND THAT OF THE CANOPY CLOTH.

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.

V3 BRIDLE
THE V3 BRIDLE SYSTEM CONTRIBUTES SIGNIFICANTLY TO THE TURNING SPEED 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.
THE KEY BENEFIT OF THE V3 BRIDLE IS THAT THE KITE MAINTAINS STEERING EVEN WHEN COMPLETELY DE-POWERED, THIS INCREASES THE USEABLE WIND RANGE AND OVERALL PERFORMANCE SIGNIFICANTLY.
