Description

Airush Ultra V3

  • Revolutionary foil & lightwind freeride design.
  • Unique combination of stability & responsive drive.
  • High performance lightweight single strut geometry.

The Ultra V3 has redefined our lofty expectations of what a kite can do. The light weight and stability have opened up places we could never have kited, in marginal conditions we would not have considered kiteable.

With unbeatable performance, weight saving features, and an exclusive Airush Load Frame for maximum durability, the Ultra kite has been the go-to kite for foil riders, wave riders and snow kiters alike.

When considering the Ultra evolution, a focus on segmentation reduction through the canopy and leading edge Lightweight Single Strut geometry increases the skin tension per panel. Fewer segments result in more tension between each segment point. This increases the responsiveness of the Ultra V3, while maintaining stability.

The Ultra has yet again proven to be unbeatable for lightwind freeride performance, foiling, and wave riding alike. The exclusive Airush Load Frame, segmentation reduction through the canopy, and lightweight single strut geometry all contribute to increased durability and responsiveness.

KEY FEATURES:
Lightweight single strut geometry.
Increased canopy tension & rigidity to increase responsiveness.

Ultra V3 Kite Weight Guide

LIGHTWEIGHT SINGLE STRUT GEOMETRY

The 2020 Airush Ultra V3 is designed to maintain its shape and responsiveness by maximizing the benefits of the unique Airush Load Frame. The balanced geometry combines canopy curve, leading edge sweep and a specific trailing edge concave. By reducing the number of struts and combining this with WebTech smart reinforcing the weight of the 2020 Airush Ultra V3 is minimized. This enables a greater level of performance in all wind conditions and allows us to push the boundaries of light wind performance.

AIRUSH LOAD FRAME V4

The Airush Load Frame featuring WebTech has been the key to setting the ultimate benchmark in durability, without compromising on weight. By expanding our exclusive Load Frame with WebTech throughout the areas normally occupied by Dacron, we are 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 FIBRES

Central to the concept of the Load Frame are the lightweight Ultra High Modulus yarns, of which each single yarn can carry 40kg. Think of them as a lightweight web with engineered energy absorption under load, similar to a spider web. 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.

WEBTECH

WebTech minimizes or replaces the traditional Dacron reinforcing by channeling the broader loads into the Load Frame through a web “sub frame” of ultra-high-molecular polyethylene (Ultra High Modulus). This is featured in key areas such as the primary attachment points on the leading edge or the rear attachment points, while also being used to support structural components such as the center strut.

TECHNOFORCE D2

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 exceptional material is used in conjunction with the Airush Load Frame, resulting in the ultimate combination of durability and performance.

V3.2 BRIDLE SYSTEM

The key benefit of the V3.2 bridle is that the kite maintains steering even when completely de-powered, increasing the usable wind range and overall performance significantly, while adding immense safety benefits. The positioning of the bridle attachment points on the LE of the kite, combined with the V pulleys result in lighter steering, but direct enough to feel where your kite is while riding. Further refinements have allowed us to reduce the length of the bridles, while maintaining the performance characteristics. The Airush Pulleys are 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 kite.

LIGHTWEIGHT COMPACT KITEBAG

Even the kitebag has been optimized, using premium lightweight Ripstop nylon (mountaineering technology) to create a unique bag that folds into its own pocket and weighs less than 250gm.

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.

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.

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.

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.

  1. Tony Mathers

    Just purchased ultra v3 12m and absolutely delighted with it. Doesn’t seem quite as grunty in the low end as my hyperlink but requires almost no effort to keep flying when the wind drops or shifts..hasn’t fallen once in situations where I would have been struggling and probably swimming with my hyperlink. Handles gusts really well too. Absolutely love this kite and big thumbs up to kite bud for their great service.
