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 kite.
The unique blend of stability, low end power, and responsive drive allows the kite to fly further forward in the window.
Pairing lightweight Single Strut Geometry with a higher tension canopy makes this the most responsive Ultra yet.
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 Ultra is the kite for you.
