What Airush has to say about the 2018 Lithium Progression SPS

Utilizing  our  Single  Pump  System,  the  Lithium  Progression SPS  construction  is  the  perfect  blend  of  quality  and  value.  Using  our  premium  Teijin  Technoforce  D2  Double  Rip  Stop Canopy,  the  kite  has  an  increased  durability  throughout  the kite, higher resistant to stretch and tearing while still remaining light in weight.This combination of strength and reduced weight enhances the overall characteristics of the kite, making it faster and agile. The V2.1 Bridle System on the Lithium Progression SPS offers a  functional  and  stable  setup  when  working  together  with  the Delta  Hybrid  Design.  This  combination  of  shape  and  bridle technology enhances the wind range capabilities and the  speed of relaunching extremely fast. Keeping true to simplicity, the Lithium Progression SPS includes a  durable  stuff  sack  bag  with  strut  extension  for  easier  pack downs and set ups

Airush Technology

Integrated Dyneema

Central to the concept of the Load Frame are the lightweight Dyneema yarns, where each single yarn can carry 40 kg. 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.

Technoforce D2

This premium fabric is designed with a high-density structure using high tenacity polyester yarn, and a double Ripstop configuration. D2 also features a double coating, where prior to weaving the canopy the individual yarns are coated. Once woven the fabric then undergoes a second coating, protecting the yarn as much as possible from UV and abrasion damage.  This ensures that the canopy remains as crisp and responsive as possible for as long as possible. This exceptional material is used in conjunction with the Dyneema Load frame resulting in the ultimate combination of durability and performance.

Gradient Sub Frame

The Gradient Sub Frame 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 specific to the use. For example the Wave kites feature 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.

FBI One Pump Valves

The over sized SPS valve (Single Point Inflation System) optimizes inflation and deflation. The Fast Bladder inflation (FBI) features increased wall thickness and oversized diameter tubing, this eliminating tube kink and reducing stress on your pump, resulting in a quick and easy inflation. The SPS Cover supports the tubing further limiting UV damage to the material and prevents over flexing when packing.

Four Piece Strut

The 4-piece strut has an added double folded triple stitch seam aligned with a 20mm wide webbing strip to reduce point of wearing. This increases durability and rigidity of the struts.

Heavy Duty LE

With ongoing improvements to the canopy construction, the increased durability has increased the maximum possible loads on the leading edge.  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 manufactured in Germany, 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. The Unity Strut Connection works in conjunction with the 4-Piece Struts allow for a thinner and lighter strut.

This product includes a Cleat Option for riders looking for their specific preference of trim over the classic Airush Pull-Pull trim

2018 Diamond Control Bar

We looked closely at the specific needs of female kiters which lead to the development of the Diamond Bar.  Focusing on a more compact control setup with a smaller chicken loop and shorter trim line we were able to keep the depower strap easily within reach, which is absolutely necessary while riding comfortably and safely.Although the Diamond bar is relatively smaller (42-48cm), this bar is designed around the Diamond Kite which responds perfectly to this sized bar.  A reduction in grip diameter that mimics the AP Bars grip size is extremely beneficial for those with smaller hands.  This insures a more comfortable feeling while riding.

2018 Airush AP Control Bar

The key philosophy was to create the absolute minimalist bar that focuses purely on function and bomb-proof durability.The 19mm reduced diameter bar, enables the rider to maintain a solid grip through the most power moves and landings. Additional features include heavy-duty flying lines, larger chicken loop and a shorter throw with a functional strap system and custom size adjustments.
