The Diamond kite features a refined profile and balanced configuration that appeals to a broad range of users, from performance freestyle and wave riding to intermediate riders. It is stable and user friendly enough, allowing lighter riders to depower the kite fully.
The unique shape is light on the bar, with a short bar throw ideal for shorter riders. Even the lightest of riders can easily get the kite to the edge of the window in stronger conditions.
The Airush Load Frame V4 featuring WebTech has enabled us to further increase the strength of the Diamond, without an increase in weight.
The WebTech expands our exclusive Airush Load Frame throughout the high load areas, such as the wingtips, by utilizing the web fibers to absorb high loads, further increasing the durability and response rate of the kite.
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.
INTEGRATED HIGH MODULUS POLYETHYLENE YARNS
Central to the concept of the Load Frame are the lightweight Ultra High Modulus yarns, of which each single yarn can carry 40kg. Think of them as a lightweight web with engineered energy absorption under load, similar to a spider web.
These yarns 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.
This premium fabric is used in conjunction with the Airush Load Frame for the ultimate combination of durability and performance. Ongoing testing has highlighted the lowest stretch and UV Stability, along with the highest long-term reliability of any fabric available.
V3.2 BRIDLE SYSTEM
The V3.2 Bridle along with high sweep in the leading edge gives immense depower while allowing the kite to fly forward in the window when heading upwind or high apparent wind on your foil.
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
BAR PRESSURE ADJUSTMENT
All Airush bridled kites, excluding the Ultra and Wave kites, feature the Bar Pressure Adjustments on the leading edge of the kite. These options allow the rider to select the perfect amount of feedback and comfort in the bar while riding with simple and quick adjustments before your session!
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.
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.
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 lines on the Razor affect turning speed of the kite. By moving the rear lines towards the leading edge, the Razor becomes static and stable, perfect for wakestyle moves. Moving the rear lines towards the trailing edge allows the razor to move extremely quick, perfect for boosting and kitelooping. The number of attachments vary based on Razor specific size.
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.
