The Diamond features a refined profile and balanced configuration that appeals to a broad range of users from wave, foiling, and freeride, to freestyle. It is stable and user-friendly, yet responsive in both steering and power delivery. Even the lightest of riders can easily get the kite to the edge of the window in stronger conditions.

KEY FEATURES:
Ideal for lighter riders.

 Airush Load Frame V4

Features & Benefits

Airush Load Frame V4

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.

 WebTech

WebTech

WebTech minimizes or replaces the traditional Dacron reinforcing by channeling the broader loads into the Load Frame through a web "sub frame" of ultra-high-molecular polyethylene (Ultra High Modulus). This is featured in key areas such as the primary attachment points on the leading edge or the rear attachment points, while also being used to support structural components such as the center strut.

 Integrated High Modulus Fibres

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.

 Technoforce D2

Technoforce D2

This premium fabric is designed with a high-density structure using high tenacity double-coated polyester yarn in a double ripstop configuration. The double coating protects the yarn as much as possible from UV and abrasion damage. This ensures that the canopy remains as crisp and responsive for as long as possible.

This exceptional material is used in conjunction with the Airush Load Frame, resulting in the ultimate combination of durability and performance.

 V3.2 Bridle System

V3.2 Bridle System

The key benefit of the V3.2 bridle is that the kite maintains steering even when completely de-powered, increasing the usable wind range and overall performance significantly, while adding immense safety benefits.

The positioning of the bridle attachment points on the LE of the kite, combined with the V pulleys result in lighter steering, but direct enough to feel where your kite is while riding.

Further refinements have allowed us to reduce the length of the bridles, while maintaining the performance characteristics.

 Bar Pressure Adjustment

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

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

Airush Bumpers

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 and FBI

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

Rear Line Adjustment

The rear lines on the Diamond affect turning speed of the kite. By moving the rear lines towards the leading edge, the Diamond becomes static and stable, perfect for wakestyle moves. Moving the rear lines towards the trailing edge allows the Diamond to move faster, perfect for a bit of jumping.

 Kevlar Reinforcement

Kevlar Reinforcement

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.

 Recycled Polyester Kitebag

Recycled Polyester Kitebag

Around 36 billion plastic bottles are produced every year, and more than 30% of non-recycled plastics will end up in the rivers or oceans. Consider this, and remember that these waterways are our playground. We have teamed up with one of the leaders in recycled plastic, and now we produce many of our kitebags and key accessories in collaboration with Waste 2 Wear.

Waste 2 Wear recycle 100% post-consumer plastic bottles into eco-friendly fabrics. This unique process involves turning environmentally damaging waste into useable, sustainable yarns. The recycled yarns are then combined with natural fibers to be woven or knitted into eco-friendly fabrics, suitable for garments, home textiles and accessories.
