Description

AIRUSH ULTRA TEAM

Airush Ultra Team

DESCRIPTION

Defining the future of minimalistic, lightweight performance design for foil, freeride, and surf, the Ultra Team is a more responsive, faster, and lighter version of the Ultra reinforced with Ho’okipa Ultra PE material. Featuring a thinner, higher pressure leading edge to reduce drag and allow for a higher angle of attack when riding upwind, as well as a fixed bridle for direct steering. The unique blend of efficiency, stability and responsiveness creates an extremely versatile product.

KITE DETAILS & TECH VIDEO

When it comes to defining the future of lightweight performance design for foil, freeride, and surf, we introduce the new Ultra Team, featuring Ho’okipa.

Conceived as the ultimate kite for the minimalist, the single strut Ultra continues to lead the revolution of foil and light-wind freeride. From this incredible base, we have developed the Ultra Team, the result is supercharged responsiveness coupled with sublime handling, and of course the long-term performance you expect from Airush.

Developed in partnership with Challenge Sailcloth, the Hoókipa Ultra PE leading edge and strut composite material is 25% lighter and 10x stronger than traditional fabrics. This allows for 50% higher pressure, creating increased stiffness combined with a thinner leading edge.

As a base material Ultra PE up to 32 x stronger compared directly to polyester, with the Ultra PE fiber being 15x stronger than steel at the same weight and 2x lighter than Carbon Fiber, in fact Ultra PE fiber is so light that it floats on water. Once integrated into Hoókipa´s unique woven structure, a high amount of material in the composite is structural, allowing us to optimize all areas of the construction.

Understanding the characteristics of this material is the key to the responsiveness of the Airush Ultra Team – the process of inflation places a higher tension on the stiff fabric, and you feel that immediately. The biggest combined benefit of the Ho´okipa is the ability to run high tension without sacrificing longevity. This higher tension leading edge and strut creates a much more responsive frame that responds quickly to rider input and keeps the kite stable.

Running up to 50% more leading-edge pressure, this creates a stiffer structure and ultimately allows us to run a reduced diameter high pressure leading edge and struts. The thinner LE reduces the drag on the kite, allowing a higher angle of attack when going upwind, or traveling at a higher speed. Which is also ideal in more offshore wave conditions to help keep the rider on the wave face.

Utilizing the same Ultra PE primary fiber as the leading edge and struts, the load frame carries much of the primary load running through the canopy.

Hookipa Ultra PE fabric is 25% lighter than traditional Dacron leading-edge materials. With the 5m weighing in at under 1.5kgs, this is the lightest production 5m we have ever made, and this reduced weight keeps the kite flying even in the lightest conditions.

Considering how small the Ultra Team packs down, its reduced weight, and crazy low end, it will become your ultimate travel partner.

When it comes to finding the future of lightweight performance design for foil, freeride, and surf, look no further than the Airush Ultra Team.

Running up to 50% more leading edge pressure, this creates a stiffer structure and ultimately allows us to run a thinner leading edge. The biggest combined benefit of the Ultra PE is the ability to run high tension without sacrificing longevity. This higher tension leading edge and strut creates a much more responsive frame that responds quickly to rider input and keeps the kite stable. HIGHER PRESSURE LEADING EDGE & STRUT
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. Utilizing the same Ultra PE primary fiber as the leading edge and struts, the load frame carries much of the primarily load running through the canopy. This prevents the canopy cloth from over stretching and losing performance. This also increases responsiveness by creating a more locked in shaping into the canopy. LOAD FRAME SUPPORTED CANOPY
Reduces the drag on the kite, allowing a higher angle of attack when going up wind, or travelling at higher speed. Important in more offshore wave conditions to help keep the rider on the wave face. NARROWER DIAMETER LE
Featuring swept wingtips for instant relaunch.
Featuring fixed bridles for a more direct & responsive feel. FIXED BRIDLES
This premium fabric is designed with a high-density structure that uses 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, ensuring that the canopy remains crisp and responsive for as long as possible. TECHNO FORCE™/D2 WITH IMPROVED CANOPY TENSION
The Ho’okipa Ultra PE fabric is 25% lighter than traditional Dacron leading edge materials. The reduced diameter structures and optimized details, result in an overall weight saving of up to 30%. The reduced weight keeps the Ultra Team flying even in the lightest conditions.

3 reviews for Airush Ultra TEAM

  1. The Kiteboarder Magazine

    The Ultra Team is swift, nimble and drifts like a ghost, but the power is always intuitive and on-demand but never overbearing. The advantages of the new construction seem to increase the rigidity of the Ultra, which might just widen the Ultra Team’s appeal to kite foiling as well as general freeride and surf disciplines, but without a doubt it fires a shot into the arm’s race to make kite airframes lighter and more responsive. https://www.thekiteboarder.com/2022/05/30/tkb-review-2022-airush-ultra-team

  2. Kiteworld Magazine

    Sublime light wind turning performance; the Ultra Team never feels like it doesn’t have enough power to turn beautifully and then drive cleanly forward. https://magazine.kiteworldmag.com/test-airush-ultra-team-7m.html
