This premium fabric is used in conjunction with the Aramid Load frame for the ultimate combination of durability and performance. Ongoing testing has highlighted the lowest stretch and highest long-term reliability of any materials available.
ARAMID LOAD FRAME
All Team Series kites feature the proven Aramid Load Frame. Aramid, found in bulletproof vests, is strategically placed throughout the kite to create a frame that improves the kites structure and response.
This construction absorbs impact throughout the canopy, reducing the overall load placed on the canopy cloth, by directing load through the Aramid frame high stress periods such impact or wave action. Not only does the frame create a solid structure, but also increases performance. The Aramid Load Frame makes a more solid link throughout the entire kite, which enhances the response from rider to kite.
Featured on the Airush Razor Team, the 5th line allows for a simple, safe and effective support system. Ideal for a thinner leading edge and a C-shape arc.
The pure C-kite shape offers stability and predictability without compromise. The result is forward flying for upwind ability, immense ‘pop and slack’ for freestyle/wakestyle maneuvers and the most direct feel from the bar. Airush has taken these characteristics of the C-kite and added a significantly wider wind range, customizable tuning and greater stability.
TIPS & TUNING
According to designer Mark Pattison,
“The changes mostly come from the reduced sweep, due to this this we were able to control the angle of attack difference between LE and TE even more than in previous years. This control helps the kite to shoot that extra bit further forward in the window for an unhooked handle pass, allowing the rider to maintain control and land with ease an plenty of slack in the lines after the initial pop. It also helps bring the kite around even quicker in a powerful kite loop to get the kite straight over your head and catch you quickly, but still providing a radical hardcore C-Kite style kite loop.”
