Extremely versatile freeride kite for riders at any level.
Incredibly stable with smooth and consistent drive.
Available with Single Point Inflation or Multi Strut Inflation systems.
This is the kite that carved a new level of legendary versatility and performance in a single model. The Lithium Progression is as comfortable in the hands of a first-time kiter as the advanced rider looking for a lot of everything: freeride, jumping, looping and waves. Due to the Delta Hybrid design the Lithium Progression has fast and simple relaunch capabilities, making this kite perfect for kite centres and learners.
As the kite continues to build it’s legacy, we have explored new construction options to further refine a product that caters to the unique demands of each rider. Making use of the new D4 HD Cloth, the Lithium Progression canopy is now stronger, more resilient and built to withstand the elements. The Lithium Progression is now available in SPS or Multi Strut Inflation systems.
Making use of the new D4 HD Cloth, the Lithium Progression canopy is now stronger, more resilient and built to withstand the elements. Ongoing testing has highlighted the lowest stretch and UV Stability, along with the highest long-term reliability of any fabric available.
V2.1 BRIDLE SYSTEM
The V2.1 Bridle System on the Lithium Progression and Progression SPS provides support to the slightly larger leading edge to increase stability, support, and wind range of the Delta Hybrid design. The V2.1 Bridle also keeps steering tension at all times, ideal for entry and intermediate users require full control while riding completely depowered.
The Airush Pulleys are made of tough Zytel material for high strength and resistance to abrasion and impact, the Airush Pulley has the pigtails hole directionally correct to eliminate bridle wear. With a breaking strength of 550 kg, the Airush pulley was designed specifically for use on all Airush kite
The emergency safety handles are provided on each wingtip. This maximizes the control and security when performing a self-rescue.
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.
Kevlar, found in bullet proof 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.
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. The SPS cover supports the tubing, further limiting UV damage to the material and preventing over flexing when packing.
REAR LINE ADJUSTMENT
The Rear Line Adjustment featured on all Airush kites allows for quick changes in the kites bar pressure and response. With adjustment towards "High" the kite will have increase bar pressure and decrease turning speed. Moving back towards the rear of the wingtip will decrease bar pressure and increase turning speed.
Smaller kites have 3 Bar Pressure settings, Larger kites only have Medium and Low Bar Pressure options available.
XL INFLATE/DEFLATE VALVE
The XL inflate/deflate valve features an insanely easy and fast way to inflate and deflate your kite. The large opening creates maximum flow of air and reduces fatigue and stress on your pump. This in conjunction with the Airush high-velocity pump makes inflating your kite extremely fast to get you on the water as quickly as possible.
