Defining the future of minimalistic, lightweight performance design for foil, freeride, and surf, the Ultra Team is a more responsive, faster, and lighter version of the Ultra reinforced with Ho’okipa Ultra PE material. Featuring a thinner, higher pressure leading edge to reduce drag and allow for a higher angle of attack when riding upwind, as well as a fixed bridle for direct steering. The unique blend of efficiency, stability and responsiveness creates an extremely versatile product.
Running up to 50% more leading edge pressure, this creates a stiffer structure and ultimately allows us to run a thinner leading edge.
The biggest combined benefit of the Ultra PE is the ability to run high tension without sacrificing longevity. This higher tension leading edge and strut creates a much more responsive frame that responds quickly to rider input and keeps the kite stable.
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.
Utilizing the same Ultra PE primary fiber as the leading edge and struts, the load frame carries much of the primarily load running through the canopy. This prevents the canopy cloth from over stretching and losing performance. This also increases responsiveness by creating a more locked in shaping into the canopy.
Reduces the drag on the kite, allowing a higher angle of attack when going up wind, or travelling at higher speed. Important in more offshore wave conditions to help keep the rider on the wave face.
Featuring swept wingtips for instant relaunch.
Featuring fixed bridles for a more direct & responsive feel.
The Ho’okipa Ultra PE fabric is 25% lighter than traditional Dacron leading edge materials. The reduced diameter structures and optimized details, result in an overall weight saving of up to 30%. The reduced weight keeps the Ultra Team flying even in the lightest conditions.
