Re: Airush Lithium Progression 12m?

:Thanks for your replies. As I am still a beginner I guess progression should be just fine for me :D I have a choice of flying it on 20 or 24 m lines (Blade uni bar I have has 20+4 extension, it is a V). What length I should use with 12m Progression I bought last week on sale? :thumb: Personal pref...

Re: Airush Ultra: one strut kite that meets expectations of a ram air lover

Thought the same but i was told that the 10 Ultra is very powerfull (and low end in 9 wave is not great That's true, There are two main patters in the new V2 Ultra. 9 and downover are the same as last year, but 10 and above are lighter and faster turning designs, so they feel like they have more po...

Re: Airush Ultra: one strut kite that meets expectations of a ram air lover

Thanks Mike. I have 145 lightwind Crazyfly TT but mostly ride surfboards in the 5'8 size fairly wide with smaller kites 185 lbs. The 14 can be a bit much in the surf sometimes. The idea here is to replace the older 14 with something newer for those marginal days when I just want to get out and ride...

Re: Guide to the Airush Union 4 - real world what's new, where it's gone, what it's like..

I don't suppose the bridles are MUCH shorter this year? Whilst I like the steering feel in the older unions, the length of the bridle makes setting up and packing up in strong winds a little more time consuming. Indeed - the new bridle is shorter, lighter, and more compact. I'd have to measure one ...

Re: Airush Ultra: one strut kite that meets expectations of a ram air lover

Can any of the Airush users out there compare a 2012 Lithium 14 LW kite to a current Ultra V2 12 or 14m? I am wondering if I can get the same low end out of the new Ultra 12 or should I get the 14? I assume the ULTRAs have better high end. I always the thought the 14 LW turned well for a kite that ...

A separate review. John Bouchet - Jersey - UK This guy is well ahead of me in standard (freestyle) and also foils and waverides, so pretty allround.. He uses Razor mostly with a bit of Ultra and Wave. I had a mega first session on the Union V4 10m yesterday, I stuck my woo in freestyle mode and was ...

Re: Airush Lithium Progression 12m?

different cloth, no load frame, simpler bridle, no one pump... same pattern... yes, but.. It does make a difference to how it flies. Not at low loadings so much but at high loadings the Core is better and will wear far better too. All Airush hybrids fly on standard geometry bars - ie all 4 lines the...
