Airush Ultra V4

  • Ultimate lightweight design for foil, freeride & surf.
  • Unique combination of stability & responsive drive.
  • High-performance, lightweight Single Strut Geometry.

DESCRIPTION

When it comes to finding the ultimate combination in lightweight performance design for foil, freeride, and surf, look no further than the Airush Ultra V4. The unique blend of stability, low end power, and responsive drive allows the kite to fly further forward in the window.

KITE PERSONALITY

Pairing lightweight Single-Strut Geometry with a higher tension canopy makes this the most responsive version yet.

The Ultra V4 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.

NEW FEATURES

Lightweight Single Strut Geometry.
Improved canopy tension & rigidity to increase responsiveness.

SIZES: 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 12, 14, 17m

COLORS: Slate & Teal | Red & Teal | Yellow (*New for 2023)

Originally conceived as the ultimate kite for the minimalist, the Ultra leads the revolution of foil and light wind freeride. The single strut allows us to shed as much weight as possible, without losing that essential rigidity needed for stability, relaunch and ease of use.

The Ultra maintains its flying shape by maximising the benefits of the Airush Load Frame, resulting in improved canopy tension & responsiveness. The balanced geometry combines canopy curve, leading edge sweep and a specific trailing edge concave.

By combining this with WebTech reinforcing, the weight of the Ultra is minimised. This enables a greater level of performance in all wind conditions and allows us to push the boundaries of light wind performance.

By removing all the struts, except the one, with a medium aspect ratio and rounded wingtips, combined with the v3 Pulley Bridal system and the open C design creates a new kind of kite. A kite for the minimalist, on the revolution of foil and light wind freeride. The single strut allows us to shed as much weight as possible without losing that essential rigidity needed.

The Airush Load Frame, featuring WebTech, has been the key to setting the ultimate benchmark in durability without compromising on weight.

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

These 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.

By expanding our exclusive Load Frame with WebTech throughout the areas normally occupied by Dacron, we are able to minimize the heavier fabric, and utilize the ballistic fibres instead – increasing strength and minimizing weight.

So if you are looking for the ultimate combination in lightweight performance design for foil, freeride, and surf, the Airush Ultra V4 is the kite for you.

Kite Technology

Airush-Ultra-V4-Kite-Technology
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. Airush Technoforce D2 Canopy
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. AIRUSH BUMPERS
The Airush Lithium kite features two bar pressure adjustment settings. Airush BAR PRESSURE ADJUSTMENT
The key benefit of the V3.2 Bridle System 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, results in lighter steering, but direct enough to feel the kite’s position whilst riding.

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.

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 kites performance. Airush KEVLAR REINFORCEMENT

LIGHTWEIGHT SINGLE STRUT GEOMETRY

The Ultra V4 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 Ultra V4 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.

4 reviews for Airush Ultra V4

  1. The Kiteboarder Magazine

    The Ultra excels in maintaining its canopy rigidity and leach stability while feeling fast and efficient in lower winds. The power control really shines for foiling and surfing, but when you combine its quick handling and low wind maneuverability, it’s also a great crossover kite that handles casual twin tip freeriding with impeccable controls and supped up performance. The versatility of single struts is on the rise and the Ultra is leading the charge. https://www.thekiteboarder.com/2021/06/28/tkb-review-2021-airush-ultra-v4/

  2. The Kite Mag

    A well-received lightweight kite amongst freeride foil aficionados, that will also hold its own as a wave kite. https://www.thekitemag.com/tests/airush-ultra-v4/

  3. Jack Rieder

    The Ultra is the kite that guarantees a session. Any trip I go on, related to kiting or not, I sneak an Ultra into my bag to snag a ride. The Ultra’s epic low end and compact size means there’s always a session to be had.

  4. Ramiro Gallart

    There is nothing bad that can be said about this kite. I am completely in love! It behaves so good and has the best bar pressure.
