AIRUSH LOAD FRAME V4 FEATURING WEBTECH

  • 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, the desing crew is now 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 POLYETHYLENE YARNS

  • Central to the concept of the Load Frame are the lightweight Ultra High Modulus yarns, of which every single yarn can carry 40kg. Think of them as a lightweight web with engineered energy absorption under load, similar to a spider’s web.
  • These yarns are integrated into the canopy through reinforced taping that allows them to elongate under extreme load, absorbing most of the shock that would have typically 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 reinforcement by channelling the broader loads into the Load Frame through a web ‘subframe’ 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 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.
  • This exceptional material is used in conjunction with the Airush Load Frame, resulting in the ultimate combination of durability and performance.

GRADIENT SUBFRAME

  • The Gradient Subframe creates a more progressive load throughout the kite, greatly reducing strain on key stress points. Working in conjunction with the WebTech, we are able to optimize each model specifically for its use. For example, the Session kite features a combination of the gradient wingtip and WebTech for maximum durability, whereas the Ultra reduces the amount of Dacron to reduce weight as much 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.

FOUR-PIECE STRUT

  • The four-piece strut has an added double folded triple stitched seam aligned with a 20mm wide webbing strip to reduce points of wear. This increases the durability and rigidity of the struts.

HEAVY DUTY LE

  • By using our Gradient Load Technology on the bridle insert points and leading-edge closure (along with double stitching), as well as Dimension Polyant Dacron, we have created a heavy-duty leading edge that supports the increased performance demands.

UNITY STRUT CONNECTION

  • The Unity Strut Connection provides a solid point from strut to leading edge, to create a stiff structure that helps in performance and relaunching.
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.
