After winning numerous magazines tests and extremely positive feedback from our Airush customers, the 2013 Airush Lithium was going to be a challenge to make better. Staying as the front-runner in all-terrain kites, the Lithium is focused on being the do-all kite for the everyday rider. Due to its wing tip and strut positioning, the Lithium has a direct and agile feel through the turns, essential for wave and freeriding. The sweep of the Delta Hybrid design of the wingtips guarantees a hassle free and quick relaunch. The Lithium is ideal for riders looking to do a bit of everything, whether it’s your first day, cruising, freestyle or riding waves!

Lithium One (16m Only)

The ultimate lightwind freeride kite, using the innovative One strut technology, the Lithium One 16m utilizes the weight saving concept to create a whole new Lithium 16m for 2013, devoted to extremely light wind conditions. The drastic reduction in weight improves the relaunch, turning and stability, which are essential focuses of lightwind riding.

 
Size: 5m, 6m, 7m, 8m, 9m, 10m, 12m, 14m, 16m

Colours: 

Blue/Orange/Red


Technical:

All Airush kites feature the Hardcore Construction, a focus and commitment to structural integrity.

-  This includes a 4 piece strut with bomb proof double sandwich centre seam to reduce the amount of stitching points for reduce wear as well as increased rigidity.

- A Leading Edge connection seam with a slick 19mm soft webbing reinforcement to handle harder crashes.

- Increased mark cloth sections at the front of all canopy seams at the leading edge to stop stitching and seam wear points.

Featured on all the 2013 Airush Kites, with the exception of the Razor, the V Bridle system adds not only to the safety benefits, but also contributes significantly to the feeling and performance of the kites. The positioning of the bridle attachment points on the LE of the kite combined with the V pulleys, give a very smooth and responsive depower this allows for steering that is light, but direct enough to feel where your kite is. This also enables the kite to be steered and controllable when the kite is completely depowered.

The Delta Hybrid design in conjunction with the V3 bridle gives the Airush kite a whole new meaning to performance and feeling. Displaying direct and pivotal turning, the Delta Hybrid insures a great balance of speed and response. Due to the swept wing tips and profile the Delta Hybrid has instant relaunch capabilities making this shape ideal for all-around riding.


Tips from the Kite Designer:

The Lithium is a pretty plug and play kite for all uses, all conditions and all riders. It excels in gusty conditions and is the best relaunching kite in our range.

New for 2013 there is a Lighter bar pressure setting on the bridle attachment near the center of the leading edge. Use this for a lighter slightly different feel than the standard setting.

I would recommend as with most kites, If you ride with the bar relaxed 100-150mm (4″- 6″) away from your quick release (or chicken loop), you could probably tie an extra knot ABOVE the standard setting on the pigtail, this will give you faster turning and a bit more power.

On the other hand, If you ride with your bar fully sheeted in resting against your quick release (or chicken loop), you could probably tie an extra knot below the standard setting on the rear pigtail. This will help when unhooking also and reduce back stall when kiting in light winds.



Airush Smart Bar
The 2013 Smartbar 4 becomes the first and only bar on the market with four size options, fitting the smallest to the largest Airush kites. In addition to the 45-55cm push pin adjustment, the Smartbar 4 features an additional two sizes (52 and 62) of adjustment with the all-new PU rubber coated Airush bar ends. Maintaining its position as the definitive bar choice for all riders by integrating the industry-leading Brain Quick Release, the Smart Bar 4 remains simplistic yet highly intuitive. The 2013 Smartbar 4 is extremely tunable, safe and easy to use. Line combinations of 3/6/14m segments gives the rider more customization, allowing the Smartbar 4 to be flown on 24, 21, 18, 15, or 10m lines! Improvements include the new Low Y System, which integrates a single front-line flag out that ensures peace of mind and meets safety standards, while also increasing kite performance. Airush keeps the hardcore rider in mind with double PU coated line – the only choice for a durable sheeting line – which will give you years of usage. With these new additions to 2013, the Smartbar 4 is a truly smart package.

LOW Y SYSTEM
New for 2013, the Low Y System allows for single front line flag out system.   Providing a safe way of killing the power of your kite.  Not only improving safety, the Low Y increases the angle of the front lines, which avoids unnecessary pinching or folding of the kite.  By doing so, the wingtips become looser and move more independently, greatly increasing the maneuverability, turning speed and response of the kite.
SOFT TOUCH
Added to the 2013 Airush control bar range, the all-new Airush Soft Touch is a durable rubber molding encasing the bar ends.  With a softer bar end, the Soft Touch prevents surfboard dings, adds an element of safety and comfort only available on the 2013 Airush control bar.
4 WIDE
Making the Airush one of a kind, the new Smartbar 4 features a truly unique system. With a few simple and quick changes between the all-new bar ends and the exclusive pin adjustment system, the Airush Smartbar 4 gives the rider the option of a 45-52-55–62 length bar.  An industry first, the Airush Smartbar 4 can be used on all Airush inflatable kites from our biggest race kite to our smallest freeride kite.
BRAIN QUICK RELEASE
Loaded with high-tech features, yet simple & intuitive, the Brain quick release system features:
- NEW bungee in the release collar for reseating.
- Centre safety line with spin-able safety leash  (suicide with safety connection option).
- Easy to reset push-away release.
- Compact ergonomic design.
- Auto-orienting QR for unhooked riding.


Airush Analog Bar

Riders want the option of choosing the bar system that best suits their style, needs and budget. In 2013, Airush gives you an Analog Bar with more features. Using the all-new Airush Bar End, the Analog now has two size (45-52) options to fit a larger range of kites, making this an even more affordable option for riders. Featuring the Brain Quick Release system, the 2013 Analog Bar features all of the improvements of the 2013 Smart Bar, yet maintains the same great look and simplicity. Together with 24M flying lines (with 10M and 14M extensions), the Analog Bar complies with IKO and BKSA teaching standards with quick and easy line changes, as well as single-line flag out safety.
