The Airush Lithium is a kite we have chosen to use in the school and hire fleet for the last few years as it meets the needs of so many riders,  super stable, easy to use and fun performance, perfect for beginners and experienced riders.
The 2016 redesign is amazing, we have used it a lot ourselves this year rather than just for lessons. It is such a step forwards giving the kite excellent performance nearly on par with the Union but with the same ease of use and amazing stability, the Lithium really can do anything! 



Discipline: All-round


Sizes, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 12, 14, 17m
 

As the do-all kite in the Airush range, the Lithium has been proven to meet the requirements of riders looking to do a bit of everything from freeride, jumping, looping and waves.  With amazing park power, stability and ease of use, the Lithium is simply the perfect kite. The focus of wingtip and strut layout in conjunction with the Delta Hybrid design insures the quickest response throughout the air as well as instant relaunching capabilities.

The Lithium 17 uses the same freeride flying characteristics in the extreme lightwind category, these kites are focused on reducing weight in the overall construction.

The next generation Dyneema Load Frame takes the biggest innovation in kite construction to a whole new level and is combined with the Technoforce D2 by Teijin, for the ultimate mix of durability and lightweight performance and driftability. 

Construction:

We have been testing this canopy structure for Airush for the last two years in the school and the canopies are now pretty much indestructable, we have not had a large canopy tear since the load frame was introduced

This premium fabric is used in conjunction with the Dyneema Load Frame for the ultimate combination of durability and performance. Ongoing testing has highlighted the lowest stretch and highest long-term reliability of any materials available.

The Delta Hybrid design in conjunction with the V3 bridle gives the Airush Lithium direct and pivotal turning, the Delta Hybrid insures a great balance of speed and response. Due to the swept wingtips and profile, the kite has instant relaunch capabilities making this shape ideal for all-around and entry level riders.

The V3 bridle system contributes significantly to the feeling & performance, in addition the total depower adds immense safety. The positioning of the bridle attachment points on the LE of the kite, combined with the V pulleys, give a range of movement. The result is steering that is light, but direct enough to feel where your kite is. This also enables the kite to be steered and controlled when it is de-powered, ideal for wave riding.

Airush Hardcore Construction



 

1. AIRUSH FRAME TECHNOLOGY

Airush Frame technology distributes the load off all stitched lines on all main panels of the canopy area on impact during a crash, while the outer frame features gradient load wingtips that integrates progressive density cloth in te high load areas radiating from the attachment points.

2. ONE PUMP VALVES

Increased wall thickness and oversized diameter of the tubing eliminates tube kink and reduces stress on your pump, which facilitates quick and easy inflation.

3. GRADIENT LOAD WINGTIPS

Gradient load wingtips integrate progressive density cloth in the high load areas radiating from the attachment points.

Bomb proof trailing edge (TE) construction featuring a 3 layer tapering of heavy duty dacron material to increase durability of the TE. 

4. FOUR PIECE STRUTS

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

5. STRUT CONNECTION

The Unity Strut Connection provides a solid point connection from strut to leading egde to create a stiff structure which helps in performance and relaunching. The Unity Strut Connection working in conjunction with the 4 Piece Struts allows for a thinner and lighter strut.

6. AIRUSH PULLEY

Made of tough Zytel material for high strength and resistance to abrasion and impact, the Airush Pulley was designed specifically and has the pigtails hole directionally correct to eliminate bridle wear. 

7. LEADING EDGE SEAM

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.
 

Tips and information from Airush Kite Designer, Mark Pattison:
“The Lithium is by far our most popular kite in the range.  Kiters year after year use the Lithium because it’s ease of use, smooth power delivery, versatility in all types of conditions and disciplines, and quick relaunching.  By changing wingtip design and subtle difference in aspect ratio, the Lithium in smaller sizes adds more top-end range for those gusty or building wind conditions.  The wingtip design adds even more direct steering and assists in depower allowing you to accelerate and decelerate smoothly.  The flatter wingtip give even more response and direct steering.  If you are looking for that extremely fun kite, ideal for the everyday rider, the 2016 Lithium is perfect for you.”
