14m 2020 Airush One Progression
Plug & play ease of use.Instant depower, large wind range & easy relaunch.Single strut design for gusty or lighter winds.
Introducing the latest kite in the Progression range, and a revolutionary school kite.
Designed to maintain the bombproof capabilities of a school kite, but open up the wind range without sacrificing the easy relaunch abilities. The incredible ease of use and lightweight components allow for fast and safe progression.
DESIGN INSIGHT“We found that many entry level and intermediate riders were opting for the Ultra for everyday riding across disciplines. This was not the Ultras original focus, and there are keyareas where we have been able to improve the One as an intermediate product.We also found that many schools were using the Ultra as a teaching tool, initially in gustier conditions and lighter winds, but increasingly students and teachers were choosing the Ultra in all conditions. This led to us developing the One with a focus on entry level performance for all styles of riding.” Mark Pattison – Kite Designer

14m Airush One Progression V1
D4 HD CLOTH
Making use of the new D4 HD Cloth, the 2020 Airush Lithium Progression SPS v3 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 2020 Airush Lithium Progression v3 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 kites.
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.
